Man Utd 30-year-old star on his way to make Boca Juniors move
The Argentina international Marcos Rojo could finally end his Manchester United misery after agreeing on a two-year contract with Boca Juniors, the latest reports say.
The South American is on the brink of heading back to his homeland after being frozen out at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old spent the second half of the last campaign on loan with boyhood club, Xeneizes’s league rivals Estudiantes.
Rojo has yet to feature for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season and is happy to leave in search of first-team football.
According to a recent report by sports TV channel ESPN, Marcos has agreed to personal terms with Boca Juniors but the sum remains a stumbling block.
The Argentine side are hoping to sign him for free as the tough-tackling defender approaches the final six months of his current deal.
The 20-times English champions do have the option of renewing his £100,000-a-week deal by a further year.
The summer arrival of the Brazil international Alex Telles pushed Marcos further down the pecking order and SunSport previously revealed he attracted attention from Sheffield United and Newcastle United.
But a move to Superliga Argentina would reunite him with former international team-mate and former United striker Carlos Tevez.
He has made over 120 appearances for the Red Devils since his £16 million arrival from the Liga NOS outfit Sporting Lisbon back in 2014.
Marcos has lifted the FA Cup, EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League during his time at the Old Trafford club.
