Melbourne Victory ace Rojas set for Germany or England

Marco Rojas is set to sign with a German Bundesliga club or one in England's top flight according to reports.

The 21-year old Melbourne Victory star, who won the Johnny Warren Medal for best player in the A-League earlier this week, is being heavily linked with Stuttgart, Werder Bremen, Nuremberg and Wolfsburg and could be off to Germany very soon.

Rojas suggested that recent interest from Liverpool and Juventus was merely speculation as he gets set to continue his career in one of Europe's top competitions.

''It will be soon, it won't drag on,'' Rojas told the Dominion Post. ''I can just tell you that I didn't hear anything about the Liverpool and Juventus ones, other than rumours.

"But there are offers there, there are a few so we'll look over those and look over the one for staying here and decide what's going to be best.''

However, his father and agent Rodi, said that two Premier League clubs are also showing considerable interest.

"Marco was always going to wait until the end of the season to make a decision on the next step, and he will most probably make that call by the end of the week," said Rodi Rojas.

"And that doesn't necessarily preclude him staying on at Melbourne Victory where he has been very happy. He has never said he would not consider signing another contract with the club. Whatever he decides Victory will be the first to know.

"There has been interest from Stuttgart who are of course a big Bundesliga club and also two Premier league teams have made approaches.

"It's a matter of weighing up what is the best move for Marco at this stage of his career - it's all about timing and making sure the decision is going to improve him as a footballer. That's the most important consideration."
