Manchester United will reportedly seek to recoup £16m if they agree to sell Argentina international defender Marcos Rojo, according to the Daily Mail.

The Premier League side, who advanced to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night after defeating West Ham United 4-1 at Old Trafford, could receive interest from Bayer Leverkusen for the centre-back’s services next month.

The 26-year-old, who has 52 international caps for his country, has made 13 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils so far this season.

Rojo, who arrived at The Theatre of Dreams from Sporting Lisbon back in August 2014 for a reported £16m, is surplus to requirements under manager Jose Mourinho, despite starting United’s last four league outings.

The report suggests that the Premier League side will look to recoup as much of the transfer fee they forked out back in the summer of 2014, with the ‘Special One’ keen to bring in a new centre-back during the January transfer window.
