Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has admitted that he could leave the club this January, after being denied a move over the summer.
Rojo, who was linked with a late move to Crystal Palace and Everton before being kept at the club by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has revealed that he almost moved to the Toffees before the club decided to block the move.
Speaking to Argentine outfit Ole, Rojo said:
I had the possibility of going to Everton, but due to the decisions of the club or the manager it wasn’t possible.
Now I have to fight until December and, if it doesn’t work out, I will try to leave.
The qualifiers and the Copa America are coming and I want to be part of that. I don’t want to be out again, I want to exhaust all the possibilities and compete to be here.
Read Crystal Palace’s verdict
Rojo’s admission that his move to Everton was blocked does shed some light on why his rumoured move to Crystal Palace also fell through.
He’d certainly help with Palace’s lack of depth at the back, especially in the full-back positions.
However, he would also add to Palace’s ageing backline, with the Eagles really needing some youth to be brought into the defence.
However, if the Eagles can get a good deal in January, he is definitely worth going in for again.
