Everton have entered transfer deadline rush talks with Manchester United over signing of their want-away defender, Marcos Rojo on a permanent deal,Sky Sport News reports.
The Toffees wants to sign a centre-back after having Kurt Zouma return to Chelsea from a season-long loan and Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka released, as well as seeing United reject their loan bid for Chris Smalling.
Attempt to bring Rojo to Goodison Park last summer fail at the last minute and it’s believed Marco Silva sees the 29-year-old as potential replacement for Zouma.
The Argentine was with one of his officials at United’s Carrington training ground on Thursday morning and had discussions at the club with United about his future.
He last played for them in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea in April and featured only six times in total last season.
The world-record signing of Harry Maguire from Leicester further pushed Rojo down the pecking order at Old Trafford after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose Smalling and Victor Lindelof as his first choice centre-back pairing when he took over in December.
Marcos Rojo still has two years remaining on his contract at Old Trafford with the option to extend his deal by a further year.
