Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Names The Two Players Manchester United Are Looking To Sell
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Manchester United will listen to offers for two first-team players in the January transfer window.
The United boss admitted that two Argentina internationals, Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero, won't be offered new contracts at the end of the season. So naturally the club are willing to let both players leave now.
Neither has featured in Solskjaer's side this season and both were granted permission to head back home to Argentina over the Christmas period.
"Both of them have contracts until the summer and they're not going to be extended," Solskjaer said on Friday, per Metro. "We're looking for them to find clubs.
"Marcos has been given time to go home so he's still in Argentina. Sergio has been back home as well to see his family but he's back in England now.
"They are professionals, they are working hard. They are ready if they are called in for us. Of course, Marcos would have to travel and quarantine before [he plays for United].

Defender Rojo spent part of last season on loan at boyhood club Estudiantes and hasn't played for United since October 2019.
Romero was denied a transfer deadline-day move to Everton in October. But now it seems United are willing to let the goalkeeper go to a new club.
The 33-year-old, who has 96 caps for Argentina, has long been regarded as one of the best back-up keepers in the Premier League.
But with 23-year-old England international Dean Henderson now firmly viewed as the second choice behind David de Gea, Romero's relationship with Solskjaer has allegedly soured.
Whether Rojo and Romero find clubs during this transfer window or eventually depart Old Trafford in the summer when their contracts expire, both men are clearly on their way out of the club.
