Manchester United defender confirms his plans to leave the club

Manchester United central defender Marcos Rojo has planned a return to his hometown club Estudiantes after his current deal with Manchester United ends in 2019.

According to reports from Argentine tabloid TyCSports, Rojo is keen to move back to his native club and end his career in Argentina.

The 26-year old defender began his professional career with Estudiantes and spent four years at his local club.

After some promising performances, Rojo moved to Europe when Spartak Moscow signed him in 2011. Since then, he has payed for Sporting Lisbon and then joined Manchester United in a deal worth £16million.

South American players like to move back to native clubs after fulfilling their career ambitions. At the start of season, Carlos Tevez returned to Boca Juniors.

Earlier this month Sergio Aguero also revealed his decision to join his childhood club Independiente once his Manchester City’s contract ends in 2018.

Thus Rojo eyeing a return to his boyhood club is not a matter of surprise.

Confirming his decision to TyCSport, Rojo said: “I miss the club, my family and my friends,”
“I want to return to Estudiantes once I finish my contract in England.”
