Manchester United fans are looking thrilled here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that Marcos Rojo will be joining the club in a £15.9 million deal – and getting rid of Nani at the same time.
As one of our punters notes, not only are the Red Devils set to land a player they have been chasing after for quite some time now, but they are offloading Nani who has already been banished from the first team by manager Louis van Gaal.
The only downside according to fans is that the club couldn’t get rid of Anderson too!
Rojo handed in a transfer request to Sporting Lisbon in order to force the transfer through and quite rightly seemed thrilled as he confirmed the move.
Speaking to a radio station from his native Argentina, he claimed: “I’m living this like a dream.
“United are a fantastic club. I spoke to Juan Veron about his opportunity and he gave me some advice. It wasn’t easy to leave Sporting.”
