Manchester United will listen to offers for Argentina defender Marcos Rojo this summer, according to reports.

Bought for £16million in August 2014, Rojo's spell at Old Trafford has been largely a disappointment, with injuries limiting him to only 29 Premier League starts since he joined, and just 19 games in all competitions this season.

According to the Daily Mirror, Rojo will be among a number of players expected to be sold this summer, as the club's hierarchy attempt a shake up of the playing squad - no matter who is in charge next season.

Current boss Louis van Gaal is under immense pressure to keep his job, with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho continually linked with the job.

Rojo will need to be sold to raise funds for other high profile stars.

Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a top target, as is Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
