Manchester United agree deal for Marcos Rojo

Share

Manchester United have agreed a deal for Sporting defender Marcos Rojo, subject to medical and personal terms, the club has confirmed.

As a part of the deal winger Nani has joined his former club Sporting on a season long loan, Sporting has confirmed.

The 27-year-old winger joined United in 2007 and has been at the club for eight long years. However, his last two seasons didn’t go according to expectation while it was thought that he doesn’t feature in long term plans of Louis van Gaal.

Nani Done Deal: Manchester United announce latest transfer

Portuguese newspaper A Bola reported this morning that Manchester United will continue to pay his wages during his loan period.

The transfer of Nani to Sporting paves way for Marcos Rojo to join Manchester United for a reported fee in the region of €20m. 

Talks between the two clubs were kept on hold for the transfer of Rojo, following a legal dispute between Sporting and Doyen Group, who owns 75% of his economic rights.

However, the stance were softened following Rojo’s public apology. Rojo will now undergo a medical at United.

Nani will get regular game time under his belt at Sporting but his long term career at United will be almost as good as over.

  1. Good signing he’s got stamina pace apparantly he was fastest at the World Cup jus beating robbens pace and he covered more ground den all his team mates In argentina and he also won the most tackles amongst his team mates he was not a good defender inda strt of his sporting career but a South American expert believes he’s excellent and he styl hasn’t reached full potential and I think he will for us I think we shud sign a defensive mid another centre back and if we styl got time inda market buy di maria but we need a defensive mid Ino vidal won’t come we Shudd sign alex song he’s on free loan or fredy guarin both cheap options of vidal and dat youngster Antonio rudiger he’s got potential and he wud he about 7mill

  2. I would like man united to sign Di maria than vidal. Vidal has given us more dreams never come through, as such I never wish to be dreaming about him again. I guess other fans are thinking in that direction. Please van Gal should change that three defence system cause we don’t have strong and good experience defenders.
