£16m Man United defender hopes to return to Argentina when current deal ends

Despite making an incredible weekly wage, Man United defender Marcos Rojo might actually be a little bit homesick and is indicating that he might not stay at Old Trafford when his contract expires.

According to Sky Sports, Rojo has stated that he hopes to return to his original professional club, Estudiantes LP, once his current deal expires at the end of the 2018-19 season.

“I miss the club, my family and my friends,” Rojo told TyCSports. “I want to return to Estudiantes once I finish my contract in England.

Man United acquired Rojo from Sporting CP in a £16 million transfer deal in 2014 after he set a career-high for league and total goals the season before.

Rojo has found himself in Louis van Gaal’s doghouse for most of the season between poor play and fitness issues. He made 25 total appearances for Man United in the 2014-15 season but has made just over a dozen in the current campaign.

In 2014, Rojo made 11 caps for Argentina and earned World Cup All-Star Team honours as his country finished as the runner-up to Germany in Rio.
