Marcos Rojo's transfer to Manchester United looks to be done, after the player himself stated he was on his way to Manchester United.
Via Sam Kelly, here are the quotes Rojo gave to Argentinian radio:
Marcos Rojo on ARG Radio Continental right now: 'It feels like a dream, to be a Manchester United player. Leaving Sporting wasn't easy.'— Sam Kelly (@HEGS_com) August 18, 2014
Rojo also mentioned the fact he's moving to another club Seba Verón played at. 'He told me about them when we played for Estudiantes.'— Sam Kelly (@HEGS_com) August 18, 2014
So, while it's not totally done yet, it looks highly unlikely that this deal isn't going ahead. We can probably start thinking about other targets now, and he might well be in the squad in time for the next game (although we'd be surprised if he actually played then.)
So, welcome, Marcos Rojo. Please try not to do what every other Argentinian we've signed has done.
