The January transfer window had a long Marcos Rojo saga, as Boca Juniors took a while to convince Manchester United to finally let the defender go.

The 30-year-old’s arrival at La Bombonera was reported with great excitement, but unfortunately, that’s all that’s happened so far.

TyC Sports highlights a story this week explaining that Boca Juniors are still lining up a ‘plan’ for Rojo’s debut, as his fitness struggles continue being an issue.

The player had an injury in the first training session with the Xeneize, and only returned to working with his teammates on Wednesday, following three weeks of recovery.

According to TyC Sports, he’s already ruled out of the match against Claypole for the Argentine Cup next week, and Boca Juniors only expect him to be ready for the Copa Libertadores’ group stage at the end of April.

In seven years belonging to Manchester United, Marcos Rojo made 122 appearances for the Premier League side. The defender had already been struggling with injuries last year, when on loan at Estudiantes de La Plata. Despite the last six months he spent at Old Trafford in 2020, he was never used again by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
