Marcus Rojo signed his current contract with the record Premier League champions in 2018 but has hardly featured under Ole Gunnar Solskajer, starting just five league games since. This season, the Argentine has been playing with the Under-23s in League 2 but has managed just 45 minutes in the competition against Everton in October.
The Argentine in order to get regular game time was sent on loan to Estudiantes in January 2020, making just one appearance for the club before the coronavirus pandemic brought an halt to the campaign.
Marcus Rojo first joined United in 2014 under Louis van Gaal, after appearing in the World Cup final for Argentina against Germany. He made 22 Premier League appearances in his first season in the Premier League but has failed to match that tally again.
