BREAKING NEWS: Marcos Rojo renews with Manchester United until 2021

Manchester United have confirmed defender Marcos Rojo has signed a new contract with the club to 2021, the deal having an option for a further year.

Rojo joined United in 2014 for a reported EUR20million fee from Sporting CP after impressing with Argentina at the World Cup.

Although he has never been considered a first-choice starter at Old Trafford, he has regularly filled in as an able rotation option, playing 66 times in the Premier League since leaving Portugal.

Rojo's versatility has been a particular asset to United, with the 27-year-old capable of occupying a centre-back berth or the left-back position.
