Sporting Lisbon has signed a 16 million pound deal over the transfer of Marcos Rojo to Manchester United.


The Argentina defender has confirmed that he will be signing a five-year contract-subject to a medical- with Manchester United.

According to The Guardian, sporting Lisbon confirmed via their official Twitter account that the 24-year-old will move to Old Trafford, with the Portugal winger Nani moving back to his former club on a season-long loan: "mufc has reached agreement with Sporting Lisbon to sign defender Marcos Rojo, subject to a medical and personal terms. A further announcement will be made when the process is complete."

United had signed Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera in June for a combined 55m pounds.

United reportedly had a tough time negotiating Rojo's transfer as the footballer has more than one third-party entity with part ownership that had to be taken care before the completion of the deal.

Rojo said in an interview with the Argentinian radio station Continental that it was his dream to play at Manchester United and he was proud of having the chance of working with [Louis] van Gaal.

He said that he had spoken with Juan Sebastian Veron about Manchester United when he was at Estudiantes, adding that he always liked English football and he should adapt to this new playing style easily.
