Rojo heading for Man United exit

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has reportedly opened negotiations with Boca Juniors, having entered the final six months of his Red Devils deal.

The Argentina international has not made a competitive appearance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term and his only game was with the Under-23s before he sustained a calf injury.

According to The Mail, Rojo has opened negotiations with Boca Juniors and he is hopeful that the South American heavyweights can reach a suitable agreement with United.

Aside from Boca, Sheffield United and Newcastle United are also monitoring Rojo's situation, but he fancies a return to his home country where he spent the backend of last season on loan with Estudiantes.

The 30-year-old is currently behind the likes of Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe in the pecking order for a central defensive role. Meanwhile, Luke Shaw and Alex Telles are preferred ahead of him for the left-back spot.
