Manchester United need a strong reshuffling of their squad this summer if they are to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

They have a squad that can potentially compete with the best in the league but injuries to key players has let them down along with the lack of confidence for some players.

With manager Louis van Gaal also set to leave the club at the end the season, a busy summer can be expected at the Old Trafford.

Even in light of an unsuccessful couple of years, the stature of the club has seen them linked with a number of European stars including the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a potential move this summer.

To fund these big name signings, a number of fringe players are set to be on sale this summer and the first name on the list is already decided.

According to reports from the Mirror, Argentina national Marcos Rojo is set to be off-loaded by the Red Devils in the wake of the overhaul the squad at Old Trafford will undergo at the end of the season.

The 26-year old moved to Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in 2014 after impressing for his country in the World Cup that year.

However, he failed to replicate the form in a Red Devils t-shirt as he failed to nail down a permanent spot in the starting XI.

Injuries have not helped his cause but the versatile defender is now already down on the pecking order and with the likes of Luke Shaw set to return from injury for the next season, his chances at redemption in England are reducing by the game.

Recently, the 26-year old revealed that he will not extend his contract with the club that runs till 2019 and made it clear that he wants to return to his boyhood club Estudiantes de La Plata after his contract at Old Trafford runs out.

With pressure mounting on LVG and with Mourinho seeming close to landing the job in the summer, Rojo will have to make a decision quickly as to whether he wants to play in one of Europe’s top leagues.

However, it is now sure that he will be off-loaded in order to re-shape the squad to get the glory days back to Old Trafford.

Do you think Marcos Rojo has a future in the Premier League?
