Boca Juniors set to complete signing of Marcos Rojo

Boca Juniors set to complete signing of out-of-favour Manchester United centre-back Marcos Rojo after injury ravaged six-year spell at Old Trafford

  • Marcos Rojo is set to leave Manchester United after a six-year stint at the club
  • The 30-year-old was on loan in Argentina last year and is open on a return
  • He is set to complete a move to join Boca Juniors to reunite with Carlos Tevez

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is set to complete a deal to join Argentinian side Boca Juniors.

The Red Devils are close to agreeing the sale of the 30-year-old centre-back that would see him leave after a six year spell at Old Trafford.

Rojo was on loan at Estudiantes last season and is open on a return to Argentina, despite previous interest from Newcastle and Sheffield United.

It would end a tumultuous time in Manchester for Rojo, which has largely been ravaged with injury problems.

The centre-back most recently has been sidelined since October last year with a calf injury.

He joined the club in 2016 for a fee of £16m from Sporting Lisbon.

Since his arrival he has made 122 appearances for the club but has struggled for game time since the 2017-18 season.   

He did oversee some trophy success at Old Trafford though, helping Louis van Gaal win the FA Cup in 2016 before being part of the EFL Cup and Europa League-winning double side under Jose Mourinho.

A move to Boca would see Rojo reunited with former international team-mate Carlos Tevez, who infamously crossed the city divide after two years under Sir Alex Ferguson to join Manchester City in 2009
