Defender heading back to Man Utd

Marcos Rojo is set to return to Manchester United when his loan deal with Estudiantes officially expires at the end of this month, according to the Argentinian club.

The defender rejoined his first club in a loan deal at the end of January after making just one Premier League start during the first half of the 2019-20 campaign.

Injuries followed by the league’s suspension in mid-March limited Rojo to make just one appearance for Estudiantes. The club’s manager, Leandro Desabato, is quoted by Radio Late 931 (via Sport Witness) as saying:

“We have to wait, but Rojo is likely to leave.

“The loan is due, and if Manchester do not want to continue loaning, it’s understandable.”

The 30-year-old was close to a move to Everton last summer before talks broke down. Whether the fellow Premier League club will be interested in the Argentina international again this summer seems unlikely particularly as they have since changed manager.

Marcos Rojo is now heading into his final 12 months at Old Trafford so any sale of the player would likely bring very little cash into the club.

He has made 122 appearances across all competitions since Louis van Gaal brought him to the Premier League from Sporting Club of Portugal in 2014.
