Marcos Rojo has confirmed he wants to stay at Manchester United and believes he is in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans, despite holding recent discussions with Boca Juniors.
The Argentinian defender has played just eight matches for United in all competitions this season, with Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof becoming the first choice centre-backs at Old Trafford.
The 29 year-old signed a three-year contact extension in 2018, prior to which he featured sporadically in the United squad and was on the sidelines for seven months with a cruciate knee ligament injury.
“For now I would like to stay at United,” Rojo told El Dia.
“I spoke to the manager before the end of the season and we spoke about his plans for me.
“He said that I was in his plans, that I’m an important player and that he wanted me to return to full fitness, to be able to count on me in the first team.
“It’s now time to rest and spend time with my family before returning to England.”
