The defender has rarely been used this season.

Asa a result, he might be allowed to leave soon.

Marcos Rojo could be leaving Manchester United in the near future, with his former club Estudiantes working on a deal for the defender. Rojo is a target for the Argentine side and they are “working” on his signing, according to the Argentine club’s sporting director Juan Sebastian Veron.

Rojo joined United from Sporting in 2014 but has rarely been considered first choice, with injuries a regular problem for him, while he has also seemingly failed to convince incumbent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. This season the 29-year-old has featured just three times in the Premier League and media reports suggest United are actively trying to offload the centre-back, who is said to be on a wage of around £130,000-a-week.

Argentina international Rojo came through Estudiantes’ academy and represented the first team before leaving for a brief spell with Spartak Moscow prior to joining Sporting. But his family are reportedly eager to return to Argentina, and Veron – a former United player – is hopeful of being able to strike a deal.

He is quoted as saying by La Nacion: “Hopefully United can see that there is no economic issue that we can match, but that it [the deal] happens in other ways and that we can attract him. We are working so that he can come back. He has everything to keep playing Europe, but he wants continuity.”
