Boca Juniors want to sign Manchester United's Marcos Rojo during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Boca Juniors are reportedly interested in a summer deal for Manchester United's Marcos Rojo.

The 30-year-old re-joined Estudiantes on loan during the January transfer window after struggling to secure regular action at Old Trafford in the first half of the 2019-20 campaign.

Rojo only made one appearance for the Argentine outfit before the coronavirus outbreak halted the majority of football across the globe, though, and he is due to return to the Red Devils at the end of June.

The Argentina international still has 12 months left to run on his contract with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, but according to ESPN, Boca want to sign him on a permanent deal this summer.

The report claims that United value Rojo in the region of £15m, while the versatile defender is keen to move on to ensure that he receives regular action ahead of next year's Copa America.

The South American has made 122 appearances for his parent club since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, winning one FA Cup, one EFL Cup and the Europa League.
