We’ve got to a point where the Argentine media is bringing daily stories about the future of Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo.
Since his loan spell at Estudiantes expires in a month, there’s absolutely no certainty regarding what will happen to him.
The fact that he’s now linked to Boca Juniors makes it a hotter topic in the local media, since both clubs could end up fighting for the signing.
Estudiantes’ technical secretary Agustin Alayes has spoken about it on Wednesday. Interviewed by Radio Rivadavia (via TNT), he says he finds it unlikely that Rojo would end up signing for the La Bombonera side.
“It does not surprise me that Boca wants him, he’s a recognised player with a career. I see it difficult for him to play for another club, seeing him with another shirt is strange for me and I never say never, although I don’t see it. The idea is for him to stay at Estudiantes, but it’s a decision for Manchester United.”
The fact that Rojo was caught breaking quarantine, smoking and playing cards while wearing a Boca Juniors jersey is still a controversial topic in Argentina.
Alayes talked a little about it: “The images speak for themselves, Marcos is grown and he was wrong. You always learn and I have no doubts that he must have drawn conclusions to avoid making that mistake again.”
Outlet Diario Hoy is another one who brings a story on the defender’s situation today. They say Estudiantes are hopeful that he can stay, and many people at the club expect him to pick up the phone and call Manchester United to ask for a further transfer.
Regarding the quarantine controversy, people close to Estudiantes’ presidency told the outlet: “He’s big and he already knows what to do.”
