Manchester United centre-back Marcos Rojo was all set for a Deadline Day loan move to Everton and we now know why the move collapsed at the 11th hour.

According to the Times, Manchester United executive co-chairmen Joel and Avram Glazer opted to block the move because they saw the Toffees as direct rivals for a place in the Premier League top four.

The fact that the move fell through came as a surprise to most as Rojo made just six appearances in all competitions last season and saw his chances at cracking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side plummet after United acquired

Harry Maguire for a world-record fee.

Everton’s failure to acquire a centre-back in the window after Kurt Zouma returned to Chelsea is widely seen as their only shortcoming in a fantastic summer of business.

Rojo, who has a £20m price tag, could still be sold before the European window closes on 2 September.

Fenerbahçe, Napoli, Monaco, and AC Milan are all said to be interested in the 59-time Argentina international.
