Manchester United are so desperate to get rid of Marcos Rojo that they are willing to pay the Argentine defender to leave, reports claim.

The 29-year-old has been told he does not feature in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans after the arrival of £85million centre-back Harry Maguire and he was close to joining Everton at the end of the English transfer window.

Despite that move falling through, United chiefs are still hopeful they can offload the Argentina international, who is earning a whopping £130,000-a-week.

Deals to take him away from Old Trafford have so far fallen through due to buyers being unwilling to match their £20m demands as well as stump up his hefty wage packet.

Everton decided a move was too expensive but United are ready to go the extra mile to get the former Sporting Lisbon defender off their books, according to the Mirror.

The Red Devils will hand him a significant portion of the remaining £13.5m he’s due to earn on his contract in a bid to get him to leave on a permanent basis.

There has been interest in signing him on loan from Serie A and La Liga clubs, with Rojo keen on a move to Spain or Italy, but United want to sell rather than arrange a temporary deal.

Turkish giants Fenerbahce also remain an option.
