Crystal Palace had a late move for Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo collapse, and some Palace fans are delighted that this move failed.
Reports suggested that the defender had a move blocked at the end of the window to join Palace or Everton, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deciding to keep the Argentine at the club.
Rojo, who has struggled for much first-team action over the past year, looks like he wants to leave, and could depart Old Trafford as soon as January.
Some Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to the news on social media, with many happy that the Eagles did not make a move for Rojo in the end.

Read Crystal Palace’s verdict
If Rojo could’ve been signed on loan or on a cheap deal, then I don’t think it would have been that bad of a deal for Palace.
They need depth at full-back and could do with a player of Rojo’s ilk to fill the gaps.
However, he has struggled with injury and consistency since moving to Manchester United, so it could be a risk that Palace simply aren’t ready to take.
