Manchester United's Marcos Rojo says he's received offers, but wants to stay put

Marcos Rojo only signed for Manchester United last summer, but has yet to feature so far this season.

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has says he intends to stay at the club despite not featuring for the side so far this season. 

United boss Louis van Gaal has preferred a centre-back partnership of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind - with Luke Shaw operating at left-back - which leaves the Argentina international on the outside looking in, but according to quotes from ESPN Radio, which have been picked up by Goal, Rojo intends to fight for his place at Old Trafford.

He said: "I have received offers but my idea is to stay here [United] and fight for a position because it is a great club.

"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."

Those quotes may indicate that all is not well between the player and manager, but the South American wants to prove himself to his Dutch boss. After one season at the club, it would seem a little odd for United to move on yet another player after only 12 months on their books, with Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao both proving to be unsuccessful acquisitions of the summer of 2014.

With so little time left in the transfer window, it's hard to see Rojo leaving the club, but not impossible. It would be a bit odd given there seems to be a desire for United to strengthen at the back rather than move players on.
