Barcelona want Manchester United defender, star midfielder also linked with exit

La Liga giants Barcelona are eyeing a move for Manchester United defender Marcus Rojo, according to the reports.

The Sun claims that Barcelona are planning to make a move for the unsettled defender in the summer. The report states that the Catalan club will table an initial bid of £12 million for the Argentina international.

The 26-year-old, who arrived in a £16 million deal from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, has made only eight league appearances for the Red Devils.

Rojo recently revealed that he will be leaving the Manchester club when his contract expires in 2019, but now it seems he could face an early exit as incoming United boss Jose Mourinho plans to reshuffle the squad during the summer.

Another United player linked with an exit from the club is midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger. The German international, who is currently injured and has managed only 18 league appearances since signing from Bayern Munich during the summer, has been linked with a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce (via Turkish paper AMK).

The Turkish giants, who also signed Robin Van Persie and Nani from the Red Devils, are reportedly set to bid £5.5 million for the World Cup winner.
