Marcos Rojo is on his way out of Manchester United.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the defender will be allowed to leave Old Trafford before the closure of the transfer window.

Rojo has been surplus to requirements at United for a while now, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having a raft of centre backs to choose from – the majority of whom are ahead of the 30-year-old in the pecking order.

Having been a Manchester United player since 2014, it’s fair to suggest he has been underwhelming during his time at the club, amassing just 76 Premier League appearances in that time – only 8 of those have come under current boss Solskjaer.

Rojo was loaned to Estudiantes in his native Argentina in the first half of the season and he has remained in his homeland for several weeks after the expiry of the deal at the beginning of January.

Argentina is almost certain where he will stay, too – with Boca Juniors his believed destination come the end of the transfer window.

Estudiantes are also said to be keen on a permanent deal, but as picked up by Sport Witness, Rojo’s father is a ‘fanatic’ Boca fan.

The player is under contract at Manchester United, and it’s claimed that he will need to cancel his deal with the Red Devils by mutual consent in order to free up a switch away from Old Trafford.
