Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo continues to be a hot topic in Argentina, where two clubs want to keep him in the country.
Even though his loan spell at Estudiantes expires next week, the La Plata side are still hopeful they can hold him for longer.
Club manager Leandro Desábato spoke to Fox Sports on Monday night, and claimed that Rojo’s wish is indeed to stay at his childhood side.
“I spoke to Marcos yesterday and he wants to stay. Then you have to see the negotiations, but he was clear,” said Desábato.
The big issue for Estudiantes is that Manchester United are apparently uninterested in a loan deal. According to a report from local newspaper El Dia today, the Red Devils demand £12m for a permanent move.
That’s where Boca Juniors comes into the picture. El Dia says the La Bombonera side could ‘make an effort’ to sign him from the Red Devils.
It’s claimed Rojo doesn’t want to return to England, especially because he’s becoming a father in a few months. So the Buenos Aires club show up as another option for him to stay.
