Marcos Rojo is allegedly heading back to England to resume training with parent side Manchester United.
The 30-year-old defender re-joined Estudiantes on loan during the January transfer market after struggling to secure regular action at the Red Devils in the first half of the season.
Rojo only made one appearance for the South American outfit before the coronavirus outbreak halted play, though, and the former Sporting CP ace’s loan deal has now expired.
Boca Juniors have been strongly mentioned with the Argentina international, who still has one year left to run on his deal with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
However, according to TyC, the Red Devils have thus far not accepted any proposals for the versatile defender, who is now set to return to Premier League to link up with United.
The report states that Estudiantes have not given up hope of landing Rojo, with the South American reportedly due to hold talks with the club over his future upon his return.
The 20-time English champions are thought to value the tough-tackling central defender in the region of £15 million.
Meanwhile, Manchester United pair Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling have extended their loan deals at Inter Milan and Roma respectively.
Both stars had been due to return to Old Trafford at the start of this month, but a statement on the English side’s official website has confirmed that the duo will finish the 2019-20 Serie A season at Roma and Inter.
“Manchester United pair Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez will both see out the remainder of the 2019/20 domestic campaign in Italy, after the decision was made to extend their loan contracts with Roma and Inter Milan respectively,” read the statement from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
