Rojo turned down Boca Juniors to stay in Manchester

Big changes are expected this summer at Manchester United, but it looks like Marcos Rojo is not that much bothered. The Argentine has admitted to El Dia that he was approached by Boca Juniors recently, but that he turned down their advances in favour of staying at his current club.

The 29-year-old defender made just eight appearances throughout the season as he struggled with injury. However, when he was asked about his situation at the club and about the new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Rojo had a prepared answer.

“I spoke to the manager before the holidays and about what he planned to do with me. He told me that he had me in mind, that I was an important player, that he was going to take into account”, Rojo said.

Apparently, he has been given assurances by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he remains part of his plans for next season and will stay at Old Trafford to fight for his place in the team.
