Marcos Rojo has admitted that he will try and seek a January transfer away from Manchester United in January if he is unable to break into the first team at Old Trafford.

The Argentina defender’s situation at Old Trafford was a source of speculation during the summer transfer window as he was linked with a move away from the club.

Rojo has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United and his efforts to try and break into the first team have been made all the more difficult by the Red Devils’ signing of Harry Maguire in the summer.

The 29-year-old is yet to feature in the Premier League for Manchester United this season, and the central defender has conceded that he will probably seek a January move if he is unable to break into the first team.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Birmingham Mail, Rojo said: “I’m sure that to play in the national team you have to play in your club, you have to always be there, and when you’re here, show why.

“It’s difficult to leave when you are in such a big club. I had the possibility of Everton, but by decisions of the club or the manager it wasn’t possible.

“I have been fine for two years that I did not do the pre-season with the team, I feel very well physically. The most important thing for me is that, it is the coach’s decision to play or not.

“Now I have to fight until December and if it doesn’t work out, I will try to leave.

“The qualifiers and the Copa America are coming and I want to be part of that. I don’t want to be out again, I want to exhaust all the possibilities and compete to be here.”

Manchester United have made a slow start to the Premier League season and have only managed to win one of their opening four games to leave them with just five points.

The Red Devils will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Leicester City at Old Trafford.
