Rojo loan deal

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Argentine Primera Division club Estudiantes to loan Marcos Rojo back to his home country for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign, pending international clearance.

The 29-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in the summer of 2014; a Louis van Gaal signing. The defender was a regular in the first team for each of his first three seasons at the club but has failed to get much game time over the past two-and-a-half years.

Rojo has made just one Premier League start and a further two substitute appearances this season, totaling 122 minutes. He did start four of our UEFA Europa League group stage games and two more in the EFL Cup.

The Argentina international will be loaned back to the club he started his professional career with back in 2008. Three years later he moved to Europe with Spartak Moscow. He would only stay in Russia for a few months before signing for Sporting Club of Portugal for two seasons before getting his move to Manchester United.

Subject to international clearance, Marcos Rojo will now join up with former Manchester United midfield Juan Sebastian Veron, who is the chairman of Estudiantes.
