Manchester United star reveals he will not extend contract with the club

After yet another trophy-less season, Manchester United need some reinforcements before the start of the next season if they are to have a shot at silverware.

But there might be bigger problems at the club if players who are un-settled decide to leave the club.

Argentine star defender Marcos Rojo revealed that he is not planning to extend his stay at Old Trafford beyond his current contract.

The 26-year old moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon, back in 2014 for £16m on a 5 year contract.

However, he has not been able to cement his place under Louis van Gaal and has had a career stuttered with injury at the English franchise.

He has slowly got back into the books of the Dutchman after a 4-month injury lay-off and will be hoping to nail a starting spot at the club next season.

However, he is unlikely to sign an extension to his five-year contract after admitting a desire to return to Argentina.

He revealed he wants to rejoin boyhood club Estudiantes after the end of his contract in 2019 at England and added that he misses his time at the club.

Rojo had over 40 appearances for the Argentine club before he moved on to Spartak Moscow where he made a name for himself as a young defender.

He told TyCSports: “I miss the club, my family and my friends. I want to return to Estudiantes once I finish my contract in England.”

He will battle with the likes of Luke Shaw who is set to return by the start of the next season for a place in the starting XI and if he is not able to impress, he may well have to leave the club even before his contract expires.

Manchester Unite are currently in the 6th place level on points with West Ham United and face Everton in their next Premier League fixture after the international break.

Do you think Rojo deserves a place in United’s starting XI?
