A (crispy, singed) toast to Marcos Rojo then, as his Man United career nears an end. The Argentine defender is reportedly going to become that rarest of things: a non-Portuguese player at Wolves. The Telegraph are today reporting that Rojo is going to leave United for the newly-promoted club so as to allow the club make a bit of room in their squad for the arrival of a new centre back.
As to who that will be remains to be seen. The same Telegraph article claims that United are still interested in Harry Maguire of Leicester City, but the Foxes are going to resist any possible move by a) giving Maguire a bumper new contract and b) demanding an absurd £70 million for his services.
The Independent report that Maguire is not Mourinho's top target, however, and that he would much prefer to snaffle Toby Alderweireld from Spurs.
Matteo Darmian also wants out, and has expressed a desire to return to Italy.
Away from Old Trafford, Roy Hodgson is directing his attention back to his old club as Crystal Palace are eager to sign Danny Ings from Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp has said that he would prefer to hang onto Ings but will allow the striker leave in order to play first-team football, and Palace are willing to part with £20 million for his services. Hodgson will hope Ings is more effective in front of goal than Christian Benteke, whom they also signed from Anfield.
Liverpool are also about to sell Simon Mignolet to Besiktas for around £12 million.
Elsewhere, Russia's World Cup star Aleksander Golovin, largely expected to join Chelsea, has instead signed a contract with Monaco.
