Manchester United centre-back Marcos Rojo is reportedly on the brink of signing for Turkish side Fenerbahce.

The Argentine star joined Manchester United from the Liga NOS outfit Sporting CP in the summer of 2014 for a reported transfer sum of £16 million.

The 29-year-old star has since made 113 matches for the Red Devils, scoring two goals and picking up four assists.

Marcos has struggled to prove himself as a regular for the Premier League heavyweights owing to injuries. Last campaign, he made only 6 appearances in all competitions, starting in only three of them.

The South American centre-back was close to joining Everton but the deal fell through with the Times reporting that the Glazers did not want to sell him to a Premier League side which could challenge for the top 6.

However, Marcos could still depart Old Trafford before the transfer market closes as Fenerbahce are close to landing him on a loan deal according to the Turkish TV show A Spor.

Provided the Super Lig outfit do sign the 29-year-old Rojo, he will be their 10th summer acquisition.

Fenerbahce who finished 6th in the Turkish top-flight last campaign will be eager to do better this time around and have started well with a 5-0 victory over Gazisehir Gaziantep.

With the likes of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire in central defence, it seems very unlikely that Marcos will find much playing time this campaign.

Hence, a move to Istanbul could do him well and can also help the star return to the Argentina national team.

The defender is yet to feature for La Albiceleste since the previous summer’s World Cup in Russia where he netted the winner against Nigeria that took his country to the knockout stages.
