Argentina back Marcos Rojo wants to go to Manchester United, the Red Devils want him and have money to burn. Is there a way this won’t work out for Louis van Gaal?

Sporting wants $50 million for Rojo, 24, who has been capped 28 times by the national team, scoring against Nigeria at the World Cup. He cost Sporting less than $6 million from Spartak Moscow in 2012.

It’s not that simple, of course. Teams are certainly upping their asking prices for Manchester United, as it doesn’t take a soccer wizard to know that LVG needs some quality defenders and a lot more depth.
