Manchester United fans react as Italian journalist claims Marcos Rojo bid turned down
Manchester United have apparently turned down an offer for full-back Marcos Rojo.
Marcos Rojo looks like he could survive the potential Jose Mourinho cull of the Manchester United squad, much to the chagrin of supporters.
The Argentinean defender is not one of the more loved players at the club, with many fans considering him a liability at the back.
Italian football journalist Tancredi Palmeri has today claimed that United turn down a bid from Sevilla for Rojo's services:

Fans were not too pleased with the news:
@tancredipalmeri should've accepted ffs— Brad (@ffsbrads) July 19, 2016
@tancredipalmeri nooooo sell him, give him away i don't care, just get that guy away from a united shirt— gabriel penteado (@_gpenteado) July 19, 2016
@tancredipalmeri gah!— Paul Murphy (@algernonradish) July 19, 2016
@tancredipalmeri Should've got rid he's absolute dog poo— Pisc (@Hindarsfjall) July 19, 2016
Rojo has also been named in the 25-man squad which is jetting off to China today for the club's pre-season tour:
The attitude of Red Devils supporters towards the full-back, who made 15 Premier League starts under Louis van Gaal last season, being included on the tour was also less than pleasant:
The defence is one area lacking in quality and depth, Blind is not a CB, Rojo doesn't need explaining, Jones cannot be relied on— FIGHT4MUFC (@mufc4thefans) July 19, 2016
Sell Fellaini sell Lingard sell Rojo. Buy Mahrez.— Mark (@Mark_Champ20ns) July 19, 2016
why is rojo coming on tour ffs should leave the useless prick in China— ' (@VintageYanited) July 19, 2016
If Lingard or Rojo start against Leicester in the community shield, I will deactivate for the season. Remember this tweet— Ryan (@JoseHolic) July 19, 2016
Both Rojo's inclusion in the United Tour squad and the possibility that the club has turned down a bid for the player annoyed United fans almost as much as the announcement of Richard Branson as the club's latest 'signing'.
