The truth is nobody knows what’s going on with Marcos Rojo.
Since the summer there’s been speculation over the Argentina international moving on to pastures new and the Manchester Evening News claims he has been granted time off by Manchester United ahead of a potential January exit.
The 29-year-old has not featured for Man Utd since October after sustaining a muscle injury, although he returned to first team training two weeks ago.
Eric Bailly has just returned to training after five months out and it looks like the Ivorian will be ahead of Rojo in the defensive pecking order immeditely.
But photos emerged from Rojo’s trip back to Argentina with the United defender wearing a PSG shirt.

According to the Daily Mail, Rojo earns £160,000 per week at Old Trafford, so you can’t blame United for wanting to get him off their wage bill.
United fans have been reacting to the photos of Rojo wearing a PSG shirt. Check out their replies below:

It looks like Rojo is on his way to PSG.
That means he has officially completed his Manchester United career without a single red card.
