Wolves Move For Man United Defender Could Result In Pepe Staying In Turkey & Maguire Moving To Manchester

Chelsea transfer news

Watford are interested in Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo according to the Independent.

Per the source, United are considering selling Rojo as the club have five existing centre-halves available.

The sale of Rojo could open up the path for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire to join.

Maguire will not come cheap however, the Telegraph report he could cost the Red Devils in excess of £60m.

Should Rojo join Wolves it would end the newly promoted Premier League side’s pursuit of Pepe.

Sources close to Besiktas revealed to Turkish-Football they are keen on keeping Pepe but would be forced to listen to an offer from Wolves for the defender considering his age (35).

Jorge Mendes represents both Rojo and Pepe, as well as several other players at Besiktas.

The super agent has close ties to Besiktas and an even closer relationship to Wolves.

Besiktas are aware of Wolves interest as they have been informed by Mendes.

As things stand an official offer has yet to be launched.

The Portugal international has 12 months remaining on his contract after joining Besiktas as a free agent from Real Madrid last summer.
