A Manchester United player who has played more than 100 games for the club has reportedly already discussed terms with a potential new club.
After making 122 first-team appearances with the Red Devils, it seems Marcos Rojo’s time at Old Trafford is coming to an end.
The 30-year-old has not played a single senior game this season as he recovers from a calf injury. In fact, he only appeared in three Premier Leagues last season.
The Argentine is on the verge of a permanent return to his homeland according to Clarion.
Rojo’s salary and the duration of the contract are already being negotiated with representatives of Boca Juniors.
The 2014 World Cup finalist passed six months at the Argentinian Students last year, the club where he started his career.
Now it seems that he will sign for his league rivals for two years, Sports witness reports. Ultimately, you will have the option to extend this one more year if you wish.
It has long been suggested that Red he was one of the few players who were going to leave the club this year.
However, the deal is unlikely to be finalized until the summer, when the defender’s contract at United expires.
Although he has been largely a forgotten man in recent years, Rojo has enjoyed several successes in United.
The center-back has lifted the FA Cup, the Europa League and two Community Shields since his £ 18 million transfer from Sporting Lisbon in 2014.
However, his six-year stay has been plagued with injuries. He took 12 separate hits during that time and, as a result, he missed 111 games for the Red Devils.

Ole ready to unload another defender
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is poised to allow another defender to leave Old Trafford.
Newcastle United have agreed on a loan in principle for Brandon Williams.
The left-back had a great year in 2020, but has had limited playing time this season.
Williams, 20, fell into the hierarchy with the arrival of Alex Telles over the summer.
However, he is still seen as part of United’s plans for the future.
