Manchester United’s forgotten defender Marcos Rojo is a step away from returning to his native Argentina this January, with Estudiantes closing in on a loan move
Rojo is on his way back to the place where it all started after Estudiantes’ chairman Juan Sebastian Veron clinched a six-month loan deal with United, as per the Daily Mirror.
Although the Red Devils initially tried to offload their out-of-favor defender permanently, their inability to find a buyer for the ex-Sporting Lisbon man has forced them to accept Estudiantes’ proposal.

The 29-year-old has found himself behind Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Phil Jones in the pecking order, picking up just three Premier League appearances this season.
Rojo has 18 more months left on his current contract at Old Trafford, but with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer holding him in low regard, he is destined to leave England as early as this month.
In addition to the Argentine, United’s teenager James Garner could also depart the Theatre of Dreams in January, with Sunderland reportedly pushing for a six-month loan move.
