Rojo signs Man Utd contract extension

Manchester United have confirmed Marcos Rojo has signed a contract extension that will see him tied to the club until at least 2021.

The Argentina international’s deal with the Red Devils was set to expire in June 2019, and his struggle to land a regular spot in Jose Mourinho’s starting XI amid recent injury problems has seen him linked to other clubs, with Paris Saint-Germain reportedly interested in the 27-year-old.

But Rojo has opted to extend his Old Trafford deal even further, with an option to stretch it by another year, and he says he is happy to stay at the club.

“Since I joined Manchester United, it has been everything I thought it would be and more,” he told United’s website. “I am extremely happy to extend my stay at this great club.

“When I joined, my aim was to help the team win trophies and we have done that over the past couple of seasons. I am working hard to get back on the pitch. I would like to thank the fans for their support and the manager for the confidence and help he has given me both on and off the pitch.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho expressed his delight at ensuring the former Sporting centre-back stays put for the time being.
