Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo is getting closer to leaving the club and joining Argentinian side Boca Juniors.
That’s according to TyC Sports journalist Leandro Aguilera, who says that ‘everything indicates’ the Argentine will be returning to his home country.
Rojo is out of favour at Old Trafford at this moment in time and has managed just one appearance, in the Premier League 2, this season.
His contract expires in June this year, and he has subsequently been linked with a move away, with reports this week indicating that Boca Juniors are keen on him.

Indeed, just yesterday we covered a report that stated he had held initial talks with Boca over a move but was waiting to end his contract with Manchester United before finalising the move.
Aguilera backs that up somewhat today, stating that Rojo is ‘ever closer’ to becoming Boca Juniors first signing this season.
He states that the defender ‘will leave’ Manchester United, although he doesn’t make it clear when that will happen, and ‘everything indicates’ that his next club will be Boca.
Whether that happens this month or Rojo waits and completes a move in the summer remains to be seen but it seems this move is picking up pace and will be finalised sooner rather than later.
