Marcos Rojo has left Manchester United and joined Estudiantes on loan until the end of the season.

Rojo had been linked with a move away for the last 2 or 3 transfer windows, and narrowly missed out on joining Everton on deadline day last summer. Rojo was also linked with a return to Sporting Lisbon — the club from which he joined United in 2014 — in part exchange for Bruno Fernandes, but but that move did not materialize. The move to Estudiantes, and back home to his native Argentina, was heavily reported this week, before being confirmed by both clubs.

Estudiantes were the first to confirm the signing, welcoming Rojo on social media, and releasing his first interview.

United later confirmed the loan move of the 29-year-old defender to the club where he started his career.
