Marcos Rojo has confirmed he will look to leave Manchester United in January should he fail to force his way into Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s preferred eleven in order to ensure he continues to be selected for Argentina.

Rojo, who joined United in 2014 under Louis van Gaal, has appeared 113 times for the club since he arrived from Sporting CP for a fee in the region of £18million.

The United defender has failed to make an impact at the club, other than a brief spell of form under José Mourinho where he was partnered with Eric Bailly in central defence, but the Ivorian’s injury problems later called a halt to the pair’s chances of blossoming.

The summer transfer window saw a possible move to Marco Silva’s Everton for Rojo, but the plug was later pulled on any deal due to Chris Smalling’s departure on a season-long loan to Serie A club AS Roma.

Speaking to Argentine website Olé, Rojo explained his current situation, saying: “It’s difficult to leave when you are in such a big club. I had the possibility of Everton, but by 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,” the 29-year-old added.

Should the Red Devils allow Rojo to leave in January, a move to a Premier League club would be a rookie move, given United’s poor form of late could see the likes of Everton, Wolves and Leicester City begin to fight for a top-six spot. The addition of Harry Maguire this summer, a move that made him the world’s most expensive defender, would soften the blow of Rojo’s exit, however, and Axel Tuanzebe also looks set to become a first-team regular at Old Trafford, leaving Solskjær plenty of defensive options to explore.
