Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is currently gearing up for the 2016 Copa America with Argentina. 

The versatile defender will be desperate to play a key role for his country this summer after a disappointing campaign at Old Trafford. 

Rojo, 26, struggled with injury throughout the course of the 2015/16 season and, when fit, failed to produce the goods on a weekly basis.

For one reason or another, Rojo just hasn't been able to settle on English soil. It's safe to say that ahead of the new campaign, which will be led by new manager Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils faithful will be desperate to see England international Luke Shaw return. 

The former Southampton player was the club's standout player during the opening stages of the season but was ruled out for the season back in September after suffering a double fracture of the right leg. 

Rojo struggles 

Ultimately, then, Rojo tried and failed to adequately replace United's injured star. As you can imagine, the Argentine's future has been the subject of debate recently and it's quite clear where United fans stand on the matter; they want Rojo out.

United's official Twitter account wished their full-back the best of luck ahead of Copa America, but the club's fans brutally reacted...

Shot at redemption? 

Should Mourinho hand Rojo a lifeline at Old Trafford? Throughout his managerial career, the ex-Real Madrid boss has ruthlessly acted and it's unlikely that things will change now he's in charge of United. 

In all honesty, Rojo doesn't look up to the required standard at the Theatre of Dreams. He's had more than enough opportunities to prove himself and has so often looked defensively vulnerable.

Perhaps Mourinho will keep an eye on Rojo's progress with Argentina this summer. A strong tournament could boost his chances of starting the new season as the club's No.1 left-back. 

A decision over the future of Rojo isn't the only one Mourinho will have to make. United haven't been anywhere near the summit of the Premier League table for far too long now and must challenge for the title next season. 

It certainly looks set to be an interesting summer for all involved in Manchester. There could be many incomings and outgoings over the next couple of months. 

United fans: does Rojo deserve one more year to prove himself? Have your say below!
