Man United Defender Who Urged Mourinho To Allow Old Trafford Exit Could See Move Hijacked By Super Lig Club Offering Champions League Football

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo hit the headlines in Turkey yesterday after reportedly urging Jose Mourinho to let him leave.

Fenerbahce were reported to have made headway in their attempt to loan the 28-year-old after convincing Rojo to consider moving to Turkey.

The Yellow Canaries could however, face competition from bitter rivals Galatasaray according to the Fanatik.

The Turkish sports newspaper claim that the Lions are ready to hijack a move for the United defender.

The Lions want the Argentina international on loan as well.

Unlike Fenerbahce, the Yellow-Reds would be able to offer Champions League football this season.

Additionally, the report highlights the close ties between United manager Jose Mourinho and Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim as being a factor weighing in favor of the reigning Super Lig champions.
