There’s now only one week left before Marcos Rojo’s loan spell at Estudiantes comes to an end, and the player’s future is still far from being clear.
Argentine newspaper El Dia today brings a story saying the defender is a ‘priority’ for the La Plata side, but it’s a tough mission to get his permanent transfer.
Even though Rojo’s contract with Manchester United expires in a year and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘doesn’t count on him’, the Red Devils still want a decent amount.
It’s claimed that the Premier League side are demanding around US$15m (£12m), and that fee is ‘unreachable’ for Estudiantes.
El Dia claims that both the player and his representatives must push for the transfer to happen, otherwise there’s no way he can stay in La Plata for longer.
Since joining Estudiantes on a six-month loan spell in January, Marcos Rojo was only able to make one appearance for the club. So the number of times he was seen breaking quarantine is bigger than the number of games he played.
