Manchester United center-back Marcos Rojo is in talks with Boca Juniors about a possible return to Argentina this month.
The 30-year-old, who has not played for United since November 2019, has served the last six months of his contract at Old Trafford and is expected to leave the club in the near future.
According to Argentine outlet OldIt could be Boca who takes Rojo out of United’s hands, since the defender’s representatives have confirmed that they are in talks with the president of the Argentine national team, Juan Román Riquelme.
Rojo is believed to have discussed a three-year contract with Boca, who has yet to make a formal offer with United.
While reports in England have suggested that Rojo would be willing to remain in the Premier League and join Newcastle or Sheffield United, this report specifically questions those claims and emphasizes that Rojo would not be against a return to Argentina, something they later endorsed. the Daily mail.
It’s worth noting that Rojo tried to urge United to extend his loan to Argentine team Estudiantes over the summer, as he felt settled in his homeland with his wife and children, so there might be something for him.
Terms have yet to be agreed with United, which is eager to get Rojo’s wages off the books. It could all come down to whether the Red Devils are prepared to let Red walk for free or if they will attempt to demand a transfer fee.
Boca is well aware of United’s desire to ditch Rojo, but has accepted that they may have to wait until the summer for the 30-year-old to enter a free transfer when his current contract expires, so it seems like the ball is inside. United court.
United hope to free up some funds to sign a central defender of their own, with players such as Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Brighton’s Ben White under consideration at Old Trafford.
While ditching Red won’t add much to the transfer kitty, United knows stepping away from his £ 80,000 a week salary would go a long way toward helping their cause.
