Leicester fans would surely be left in horror if their club lands Marcos Rojo

Per a report from The Sun, Manchester United could be willing to offer Marcos Rojo to Leicester as part of a swap deal involving Harry Maguire.

What’s the word?

The Foxes defender has quickly become one of their most vital players in recent years, taking over the mantle from their title-winning backline in 2015/16.

Maguire has been nothing short of terrific, establishing himself as one of the most reliable centre-backs in the Premier League.

However, they could be on the verge of losing him this summer.

After speculation surrounding his future arose last year when United first lodged their interest, the same club are now eyeing a move again.

The Sun suggests that they’re willing to meet Leicester’s demands of £80m for the player, but Rojo and Eric Bailly could be offered in a swap deal.

Rojo, who is capped 59 times by Argentina, struggled last term with injury.

A walking horror show

The Argentine’s spell in England has been hugely inconsistent. Impressing in his first season in United colours, his performances in recent years have been rather shambolic.

As a result, the potential arrival of the 29-year-old in a swap deal with Maguire would be somewhat questionable.

If they could bring in Bailly it would be terrific business, but by agreeing to sign Rojo too, Brendan Rodgers would be adding nothing but a walking horror show to his side.

Maguire is calmness personified. His composure is first class and his ability to bring the ball into midfield is one of the main reasons he’s so highly touted.

Rojo, on the other hand, is the polar opposite. His tackling is rash and as such, it would likely have many Leicester fans hiding behind their sofas.

Back in April, he was lucky to escape a red card for a challenge on Willian against Chelsea but that wasn’t the first time he was at the centre of a poor challenge.

In December 2016 he also got away with just a booking after a bad tackle on Wilfried Zaha whilst during the same month, there was another shocking tackle on Idrissa Gueye.

Remarkably he’s never been sent off in the Premier League, but he has committed 79 fouls in just 73 matches.

Therefore, if a swap deal involves Rojo, Leicester should forget about it.
