Manchester United Marcos Rojo wants to extend his loan spell with Argentine club Estudiantes.
The 30 year old returned to his boyhood club on loan until the end of the season, but injuries restricted him to just one appearance, before the Covid-19 pandemic put an end to football in Argentina, at least temporarily.
However, now fully recovered, he is hoping that United will allow him to extend his loan spell until the end of the calendar year, and that, if he were forced to leave now, he would feel “tremendous pain.”
Speaking last week, Estudiantes chairman, Juan Veron, the former Argentina international, who also knows United well, having had a spell there as a player, has said that he fully expects the loan to be extended, because the season is not complete.
Having fallen out of favour at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Rojo does not appear to have any future at United, so he will likely get his wish if a suitable arrangement can be made.
