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:

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:

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'.
