Rojo: I have had offers but I’m staying at Manchester United

The defender is yet to feature this season, with makeshift centre-back Daley Blind preferred alongside the impressive Chris Smalling, but wants to fight for his place.

Louis van Gaal has preferred makeshift centre-back Daley Blind alongside Chris Smalling since then, but Marcas Rojo has no intention of leaving Manchester after just one season, despite offers from elsewhere.

“I have received offers but my idea is to stay here [at Manchester United] and fight for a position because it is a great club,’ the 25-year-old told ESPN Radio.

“I’ll try to play as much as possible. I talked to Van Gaal when I returned and was upset by everything that had happened but he said he was counting on me.”

Rojo – a £16 million signing from Sporting Lisbon following the 2014 World Cup – made 22 Premier League appearances last term.

Manchester United will be delighted to see the determination being shown by Marcas Rojo after a heartbreaking tale with Spanish star David De Gea.
