Real Madrid transfer news: Los Blancos eyeing Manchester United defender

Marcos Rojo

Real Madrid have shown an interest in signing Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo according to the latest reports from Spain.

Los Blancos have been seeking for a left-back since Fabio Coentrao left the club last summer. The injuries suffered in the last few months have made this signing a priority for Florentino Perez. Ricardo Rodriguez, Nacho Monreal, Alberto Moreno and David Alaba have been their main targets, and now Marcos Rojo’s name has been added to the list.

Zinedine Zidane has reportedly requested the signing of the Argentina international, who is not getting minutes of play at Old Trafford. That could facilitate his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu at a reasonable cost.

Andre Gomes linked with Los Blancos

The latest Real Madrid transfer gossip includes Andre Gomes becoming a target for Florentino Perez and Real Sociedad requesting Jese Rodriguez loan.

The Valencia midfielder has impressed many during 2015 and his manager Jorge Mendes, who has a great relationship with Florentino Perez, believes he could end up at Real Madrid. “It is difficult, but not impossible,” he said in an interview with CRC Radio.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad have reportedly requested Los Blancos Jese Rodriguez’s loan until the end of the season. The youngster is not getting much action this season, but things could change with the arrival of Zidane. The new manager will have to decide whether Jese will stay or leave.
