Argentina Star Confirms Man Utd Move

Argentine World Cup star, Marcos Rojo, has told media that he will join Manchester United.

The 24-year-old left-back convinced for his country during the World Cup in Brazil and seems heading to Old Trafford from Sporting.

Neither club has confirmed the transfer, but it is understood that Sporting and United are close to agreeing a £16 million deal, with United’s Luis Nani heading the opposite direction on a season-long loan.

"It's a dream to play at Manchester United and I am very proud of having the chance of working with [Louis] van Gaal," Rojo said prematurely in an interview with Argentinian radio station Continental.

Rojo has just returned to practice with Sporting after previously refusing to train in an attempt to force through a transfer.

However, he apologized for his behaviour and thanked Sporting for their support.

"There was a misunderstanding, I never wanted to do something wrong at Sporting as I have always been very thankful to that team that gave me many chances for playing in Europe," he added.

"If I made a mistake, I have already apologised because I didn't want to hurt the feelings of anyone at the club."

Rojo made 28 appearances for Argentina as well as 61 for Sporting, who own just 25 percent of the player, while the other 75 percent belong to third party owners.
