Ole Gunnar Solskajer provides update on Marcos Rojo
The Argentine defender is currently back in his homeland, on loan at Estudiantes. However, a knee injury and the coronavirus pandemic have limited him to one solitary appearance.
With the pandemic maintaining a stranglehold on the world, the player will remain in Argentina for the time being.
United have a number of players out injured. Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams have joined Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe on the sidelines. Despite being short on numbers, Solskjaer has ruled out a return for Rojo.
“At the moment, I can’t see him coming back here over the summer, obviously because we live in this bubble, and we’ve got this squad available until next season.”
Currently in lockdown, Solskjaer has urged Rojo to keep up his fitness levels. He did, however, seem to hint that the player’s future does lie away from Old Trafford.
“So he just needs to focus on getting fit and staying fit and being ready for wherever that takes him.”
The 30-year-old is surplus to requirements and could be sold to help raise funds. He last played for United in the 3-1 home victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in November.
The defender has been at United for almost six years. He was signed from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2014. Capable of playing in central defence and at left-back, Rojo has made 122 appearances for the Red Devils.

It was earlier reported that Rojo is keen to remain put in Argentina. His preference is also motivated by personal reasons as he and his partner are expecting their third child.
It will be in everyone’s best interests for Rojo to move on. Neither does he have a future at the club nor does he seem keen to remain at Old Trafford.
