As Marcos Rojo seems to be close to leaving Manchester United this month, here’s one more club who are reportedly working to sign him from the Red Devils.

According to journalist Beto on Twitter, it’s now Cruz Azul who joined the race for the 30-year-old. It’s claimed the Mexican club ‘opened talks’ for the defender’s arrival.

That’s all he has to say for now, with no details explaining if the negotiations are with Manchester United or directly with the player’s entourage.

This is the second club from Latin America who seems to be in talks for Marcos Rojo, since the interest from Boca Juniors has been reported in Argentina for a while now.

The Argentine media has been pointing out that Boca Juniors don’t want to spend money on paying a fee to Manchester United, as they expect Rojo to rescind his contract and move as a free agent.

So in case Cruz Azul wish to negotiate with the Red Devils, perhaps they’d find some priority to land the player.
