Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho now wants Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian to stay at Old Trafford

Red Devils boss missed out on the centre-half he wanted this summer to leave him short of options at the back

Jose Mourinho has told Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo he wants them to stay at Manchester United.

The duo have both been linked with a move away this summer and the Old Trafford boss is prepared to let them decide where their futures lie.

But ESPN FC claim sources have informed them Mourinho wants the duo to at least remain with the Red Devils until January.

United failed to bring in the centre-half their manager wanted during the summer window after missing out on the likes of Leicester City’s Harry Maguire and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin.

Right-back Diogo Dalot, who returns to full training this week after knee surgery, was the only defensive addition made by the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Fenerbahce are the latest club linked with a swoop for Argentina international centre-back Rojo.

And full-back Darmian, who has already publicly declared his desire to return to his homeland in Italy, is wanted by Serie A giants Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan.

But due to the lack of options available, Darmian was handed a start for United in their 2-1 Premier League opening day victory over Leicester.

And Rojo is needed as cover at centre-back due to the lack of new arrivals.

However, Mourinho knows the pair could soon find their playing opportunities limited and is willing to allow them to make up their own mind on whether to stay or depart before the European window shuts at the end of August.
