While the star became one of Jose Mourinho’s most-trusted lieutenants at the back last season, the Red Devils are desperately trying to bring in a new centre-back.

The Independent claims that has sparked ambitious Wolves’ interest in the ex-Sporting Lisbon man.

And United could be willing to sell to the newly-promoted Premier League side in order to free up room in their squad.

Although a favourite of Mourinho, Rojo’s injury problems have restricted his number of appearances over the past two campaigns.

Despite those fitness woes, his capture would certainly provide another coup for Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

Wolves added Atletico Madrid left-back Jonny Otto on loan and Portuguese Euro 2016 winner Joao Moutinho from Monaco to his squad this week.

Those two added to the earlier acquisitions of Willy Boly, Patricio, Leo Bonatini, Pascal Juan Estrada, Diogo Jota, Ruben Vinagre and Paulo Alves ahead of the return to the top-flight.

Mourinho is looking to bring Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld or Leicester’s Harry Maguire to United before the season gets underway, and either of those arrivals could seriously restrict Rojo’s playing time with Eric Bailly likely to be first-choice centre-back.
