Roma eyeing Man Utd defender Rojo

A return to Europe next season is on for Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo.

Gazzeta dello Sport says Rojo's six-year spell with United could coming to an end.

The Argentine international, 30, arrived at Old Trafford in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon in a deal worth £16million.

But having made a combined 17 Premier League appearances over the past three seasons, Rojo was deemed surplus to requirements and joined Estudiantes in January.

Now, Roma are interested in securing his services - perhaps to partner Chris Smalling at the Stadio Olimpico.
