A Bola & O Jogo say Man United will land Marcos Rojo with Luis Nani set to join Sporting
Sooner rather than later, and possibly before the end of Tuesday according to A Bola, Manchester United are set to announce the signing of Marcos Rojo from Sporting Lisbon.
The Argentine left back told Radio Continental on Monday night:
It feels like a dream, to be a Manchester United player. Leaving Sporting wasn’t easy.
While Rojo appears to have slightly jumped the gun with his quotes, as the clubs have yet to formally announce that a deal for the defender is done, Portuguese papers A Bola and O Jogo both have the Rojo story on their front pages on Tuesday.
The angle played up in Iberia, however, focuses on what Sporting are set to get out of the deal, with Luis Nani mooted to be on the verge of rejoining Sporting as part of the deal.
By all accounts, Nani will head back to Portugal on a season-long loan deal, while Manchester United are expected to pay around €20m for Rojo.
