Marcos Rojo is returning to Argentina on loan.
The defender is heading back to Estudiantes, the club where he began his career, until the end of the season, with United failing to find a buyer for the 29 year old.
Rojo was signed from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, but has failed to ever really establish himself at Old Trafford, although injuries played a part in that during his first seasons with the club.
However, since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived as manager, he has barely featured for them, and now he has been told he has no future at the club.
He is returning to a team where he spent three years before first moving to Europe with Spartak Moscow, and whose chairman is former United midfielder Juan Sebastian Véron.
The Argentine international still has 18 months left on his current deal with United, with an option for a further year. That means, if they do not want to be stuck with him on their books until 2022, that they may have to offer a man whose weekly wage amounts to £100,000, a substantial pay-off.
