As has been the case with Manchester United’s transfers all summer, the signing of Marcos Rojo has run into some delays.
However, Portuguese newspaper Record reports Rojo has been pulled out of Sporting Lisbon’s open training session this evening in order to fly to Manchester to finalise his move to United.
There were hopes Nani could be unveiled after training tonight and although that is now not the case because of delays, Nani is still very much expected to move to Sporting as part of a deal for Rojo.
The strange aspect to this Rojo transfer is that everything seems to have gone in reverse following his apology to the fans on Sporting’s official TV channel.
Rojo has confirmed his move on to an Argentinian radio station while his team-mates and girlfriend have congratulated him, all before the club has officially announced it but at this stage, it’s a case of formalities and a medical.
