Reports from Argentina continue to detail Boca Juniors’ efforts to sign Marcos Rojo from Manchester United.
On Monday, it was Olé who reported that club president Juan Roman Riquelme had called the defender to speak about a potential transfer.
The conversation is now confirmed by Clarín, who bring a few more updates on the situation, saying his salary and contract length has already been discussed.
It’s claimed that Rojo would have a ‘dollar cap’ of the same level as the rest of the Boca Juniors squad, and would take a two-year deal, with an option for a further one.
Clarín highlights Rojo’s will to make the move, but also points out that the transfer may not be done now, as his contract with Manchester United only expires in the summer.
For him to make the move in January, they say he’d have to rescind his contract with the Red Devils and go to Boca Juniors for free.
Clarín haven’t even mentioned the possibility of the La Bombonera side paying a fee to get the player from Manchester United this month.
