United hope for bidding war over Rojo

Manchester United are hoping to start a bidding war for out of favour defender Marcos Rojo.

The 30 year old is currently on loan in Argentina with Estudiantes, the club where he began his career before moving to Europe. However, a knee injury means he has only played one game for them, although he is now fully fit again.

That deal could yet become permanent, but United hope to get the fee they will get for him by starting a bidding war, with another Argentine club, Boca Juniors, also wanting to sign him.

In any case Rojo seems certain to leave Old Trafford this summer, having become surplus to requirements under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He was bought by Louis van Gaal from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, but, despite winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League in his time with United, has never really succeeded in establishing himself as a first team player.
