Manchester United defender Rojo heads out on loan

Out-of-favour Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has returned to Estudiantes on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Argentina international has rejoined his boyhood side on a temporary six-month deal, Rojo having fallen out-of-favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season and has not featured for Manchester United since the victory over Brighton at Old Trafford back in November.

Rojo is keen to secure regular first-team football over the remainder of the season, the 29-year-old keen to cement his place in the Argentina squad for this summer’s Copa America, a tournament in which the nation are co-hosting alongside Colombia.

The centre-back, who can also play at left-back, began his career with Estudiantes before moving to Europe with Spartak Moscow, later signing for Sporting Lisbon and spending two seasons in the Portuguese capital before joining United in 2014.

In five-and-a-half seasons with the Red Devils, Rojo has made 122 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice, winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League during that period.

According to the BBC, the defender has taken a pay-cut to ensure regular playing time in the coming months, and will return to Old Trafford in the summer where his future is likely to once again be discussed.
