Champions League and La Liga Champions Barcelona are planning to buy Argentine international defender Marcus Rojo from Manchester United. The Argentine after a move from Sporting Lisbon has failed to impress at Old Trafford but according to the Spanish outlet Sport, Barcelona have made him a priority signing.
Earlier this week Rojo was caught smoking on the streets during the international break and so far there has been no statement from Van Gaal or Manchester regarding this issue. Rojo who can play at Left Back or at Center Back has surely no chance of making it as a regular at Barcelona with the likes of Gerard Pique, Mascherano and Jordi Alba arleady present. The Argentine needs to improve his defensive intelligence and awareness to become a top player. At the moment, Rojo is error prone is not even trusted by Van Gaal to play as a center back where as his physical build is more suited to a center back than at left back.
Next season when Shaw will be full fit and with United probably buying a new central defender, Rojo will find his chances very limited, but the situation will be the same at Barcelona too.
