Man United defender edging closer to Old Trafford exit

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is reportedly edging closer to leaving the Reds after claims suggest the club are ‘in talks’ to join Boca Juniors.

Rojo, 30, joined United in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon in a deal worth £18m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since his transfer nearly seven years ago, Rojo has featured in 122 matches in all competitions and has become best known for his tenacious on-field style of play.

However, despite being a popular first-team player among the United faithful, a series of poor performances and injuries have seen the Argentinian fall out-of-favour with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After featuring in just nine matches in all competitions last season, Rojo found himself shipped off to Club Estudiantes on a six-month loan deal.

Now back with the Red Devils, Rojo looks nailed on to be one of the first players to be sacrificed as Solskjaer continues his squad’s impressive re-build.

According to a recent report from Daily Mail Boca Juniors are the club who are leading the race to land United’s flamboyant centre-back.

The Daily Mail claim that United are ‘in talks’ with the South American side over Rojo’s proposed transfer but are still waiting to receive an official bid.
