Argentina star hints at imminent Man United move
Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo has suggested that a "dream" move to Manchester United will materialise soon.
The versatile Argentinian, who starred at left-back for his nation at the World Cup, tried to force a move to England - which had been complicated by a third-party ownership deal - by refusing to train with his club, prompting a strong rebuke from Sporting president Bruno de Carvalho.
While the 24-year-old has since apologised for his behaviour, Rojo gave an interview to Argentine radio station Continental where he said: "It's a dream to play at Manchester United and I am very proud of having the chance of working with (Unite manager Louis) van Gaal.
"I spoke with Juan Sebastian Veron about Manchester United when we were at Estudiantes. I have always liked English football, and I should adapt to this new playing style easily."
Reports suggest that United could pay a £16 million ($33.1m) transfer fee and send misfit winger Nani back to his former club on a season-long loan.
