Even though Marcos Rojo has never said he’d like to stay in Argentina, this is the word that continues popping up in the local media.

For the past few weeks, Estudiantes officials have been claiming that the defender doesn’t want to return to Manchester United following his loan spell.

And today, outlet TyC brings one more reason why the 30-year-old would like to stay.

They report that Rojo is soon becoming a father, and that’s the reason why he’d like to settle in his home town of La Plata, where Estudiantes are based.

But they also point out that the final decision belongs to Manchester United, since he has a contract with the club until 2021.

TyC writes that for a new loan, Rojo would have to agree a new contract with the Red Devils. Otherwise the Premier League side would rather sell him or keep him at the club.

Rojo is also said to be wanted by Boca Juniors, and since he was recently spotted wearing their jersey, he could end up changing his mind about which Argentine club to sign for.
