Man United defender verbally agrees to leave club

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has reportedly verbally agreed to join Boca Juniors on a two year deal.

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

Since joining, the 30-year-old South American has always struggled to become a constant figure in the United side, whether that be under the guidance of Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Rojo has made 122 appearances in all competitions in the last six and a half years; that’s an average of well under 20 appearances per campaign.

Despite being largely well liked among the United fanbase, Rojo’s time at Old Trafford looks set to come to an end.

After being shipped out to Club Estudiantes on a six-month loan deal during the second-half of last season, Rojo now looks close to leaving on a permanent deal.

According to a recent report from ESPN the Argentinian defender has ‘verbally agreed’ to join South American side Boca Juniors.

ESPN claim the agreement includes a two year contract with the club retaining the option to extend it for an additional year.

A final transfer fee has yet to be reported and it is not yet known whether or not United will accept any formal approach from Boca, but we’ll keep you up to date on this one.
