Marcos Rojo TEAMtalk

Estudiantes will try to extend Marcos Rojo’s loan deal from Manchester United, according to reports in Argentina.

Rojo returned to the club where his career began at the end of January after being frozen out of United’s squad by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Argentina defender was close to a move to Everton in the summer before talks broke down, with the defender having to perform a back-up role at Old Trafford since.

However, he moved back to Argentina in the winter window on a loan deal until the end of June.

Estudiantes champions the signing and said: “Welcome and thanks for coming back, Marcos. We welcome you with our hearts.”

However, the 30-year-old has not featured as much as the La Plata club would have liked. Injuries have meant he has played just once, so the club want to extend his loan deal.

Newspaper El Dia via Sport Witness report that the club are keen speak to United and arrange another deal for the player.

It was expected that Estudiantes would push for a permanent deal, but there is no obligation to buy in the deal, with the player’s contract running until 2022 at Old Trafford.

Now though it appears another loan is more likely, with Info Cielo also stating boss Gabriel Milito is likely to sanction another temporary move.
