Recently, Marcos Rojo has revealed that he wants to return to his boyhood club when his contract expires in 2019 with the Red Devils.
In an interview Rojo said, ‘I miss the club, my family and my friends,’ ‘I want to return to Estudiantes once I finish my contract in England.’
The 26-year-old Argentine has acknowledged that he wants to return to Estudiantes where he started his professional career with. Rojo joined Manchester United in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon for £16million but didn’t fit in the Premier League as he would have expected. In his 2 years tenure at Manchester, he has made 32 appearances for the club but a decline in his form made him a backup plan in Louis Van Gaal’s side. Deployed as left back and central back, his position was eventually taken over by the other players in the squad as his injury show raised.
A regular starter in the 2014-15 season, he made 22 appearances for the club and had an amazing passing accuracy of 85% and created 10 chances for the club, also had an average 9 defensive actions per game. But, in the current season for the Devils, he appeared only 10 times for the club and rested on the sidelines due to injuries. Rojo had a good spell at Spartak Moscow and Sporting Lisbon but he intends to return to Argentina.
Besides Rojo’s contract, Manchester United is willing to listen the offers for the defender. If the new manager arrives at the Stretford End, Rojo won’t be given much time to stay as the player is having a close relation with constant injuries. If Mourinho comes to United, the club will surely go for the big names in the summer and will allow the flops to leave the club.
