Manchester United have been credited with an interest in Sporting Lisbon full-back Marcos Rojo, according to O Jogo.
The likes of Carlos Mane and William Carvalho had earlier caught the eye of the Red Devils scouts and the two players have been under close inspection over the last few weeks.
And while watching the two footballers in action, Manchester United scouts have been impressed by their teammate Marcos Rojo.
As a result, they believe the Argentine defender would be a very good long-term replacement for Patrice Evra and could be stepping up their interest in the summer.
Marcos Rojo has already been linked with several high-profile clubs such as Liverpool, Inter Milan and Valencia, and he is almost certain to leave the Lions after the 2014 World Cup.
The 24-year-old has nailed down a regular starting berth in the national team and his owners hope that his price will further increase after the tournament finals.
