Marcos Rojo is attracting interest in Argentina from Boca Juniors.
TyC Sports report Boca are keen to sign Rojo and a move could be a permanent one as opposed to a loan.
Boca cannot add any more loan players to their Copa Libertadores squad as per rules of the competition.
They are desperate to win the continental competition for the first time since 2007 and would want Rojo to play in it.
So as TyC Sports report, Boca are proposing Rojo terminate his contract with United so he can sign as a free agent.
This would be an arrangement which would suit United. He has not played a Red Devils game in 2020.
He was sent out on loan to Estudiantes last January but injury and then lockdown meant he only played once.
Rojo played one under-23 game for United earlier this season but was not registered in the Premier League squad.
He would have to take a wage cut to join Boca but this is coming anyway when his contract expires in June. United will not take up the option to extend it by a further year.
In place to move
Rojo is already in Argentina, having flown there for the festive period and new year, newspaper Ole reports.
The newspaper reports Rojo is close with Boca vice-president Juan Roman Riquelme and this could help facilitate a move.
A deal is not yet advanced although there is a desire on Boca’s part to make it happen.
It is not clear how Rojo feels over the possibility of terminating his United deal, with the alternative being he signs on loan and just plays league competition and not the Libertadores.
The Mail is also reporting the news and references interest from Sheffield United. However a return to Argentina appears to be Rojo’s most likely option.
