Manchester United seal smart deal: Full Transfer Story


Reports emerged last night that Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign Sporting and Argentina defender Marcos Rojo. The deal also saw United winger Nani moving the other way on a season long loan. 


Rojo was spotted in Manchester last evening where he is supposed to go undertake his medical and agree personal terms, being being officially named as a Manchester United player.

BBC reported that United have paid around £16m to sign the Argentine. Portugal newspaper A Bola has covered a big story on it today, where they broke down the details of the transfer fees.

6d1ca386af32ef0412e09f5367b212f4Manchester United have paid Sporting 10 million up front and will have to pay another 5 million in the form of two instalments for a total of 20m. Besides, Sporting will get 20% of transfer fee on any future sale of Rojo, if the deal is above 23 million. The deal between Sporting and United also saw Nani joining his boyhood club on a season long loan, with his wages being paid by United.

Of the €20m total amount paid for Rojo, €13m will go to Sporting, 4m would go to the bank of Spartak Moscow and only 3m to the Doyen group, though the latter is still subject to a court hearing with Sporting having unilaterally terminated their contract with Doyen that forced them to give 75% of a potential transfer money.

So, we can only say, this has been a really smart signing from Manchester United.

  1. Good signing but paying Nani’s wages for season long loan spell not good at all now LVG to strengthen the weak areas of the team, before the end of transfer window period.

  2. This is great signing for Man Utd. please continue with Vidal, Di maria & folorentina wide man.
