A Manchester United player who has played more than 100 games for the club has reportedly already discussed terms with a potential new club.
After making 122 first team appearances for the Red Devils it seems that Marcos Rojo’s time at Old Trafford is at an end.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played a single senior game this campaign as he nurses a calf injury. Indeed, he only featured in three Premier League last season.
The Argentine is on the brink of a permanent return to his homeland according to Clarin.
Rojo’s salary and contract length is already being negotiated with representatives at Boca Juniors.
The 2014 World Cup finalist spent six months at Argentinian outfit Estudiantes last year, the club he started his career at.
Now it seems that he will be signing for their league rivals on a two-year deal, Sport Witness reports. He will ultimately get the option of extending this by another year should he wish to.
It has long been suggested that Rojo was one of a handful of players set to leave the club this year.
However, the deal is unlikely to go through until the summer when the defender’s contract at United expires.
Although been largely a forgotten man over recent years, Rojo has enjoyed a number of successes at United.
The centre-back has lifted the FA Cup, the Europa League and two Community Shields since his £18million transfer from Sporting Lisbon in 2014.
However, his six-year stay has been plagued by injuries. He picked up 12 separate knocks during that time and as a result missed 111 games for the Red Devils.
Ole set to offload another defender
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is poised to allow another defender to leave Old Trafford.
Newcastle United have agreed a loan deal in principle for Brandon Williams.
The left-back had a breakthrough year in 2020 but has had limited game time this campaign.
Williams, 20, fell down the pecking order with the arrival of Alex Telles during the summer.
However, he is still very much deemed as part of United’s plans for the future.
