Marcos Rojo admits trying to convince Edinson Cavani to leave Man Utd


Marcos Rojo has admitted to trying to convince Edinson Cavani to leave Manchester United at the end of the season.

It comes as the Uruguay international toys with the idea of what to do with his career ahead of the summer.

When he joined the Red Devils, he only signed a one-year deal as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eyed a No. 9.

But the Norweigan is desperate to hold onto the former Paris Saint-Germain for at least another year.

That feeling is not entirely mutual, though, with Cavani thinking about leaving the Premier League when his contract expires and returning to South America, with Boca Juniors keen on landing the 34-year-old.

And former United star Rojo has admitted he has been advising the veteran forward to do exactly that after ditching the Red Devils himself earlier this year.

The Argentine left Old Trafford for good in February to return to his homeland after a couple of years out in the cold at United.

Rojo told ESPN Argentina: “Yes, I spoke with him, I speak with him a lot.

“We haven’t been together for long in Manchester, only four or five months, but he’s a great person, and let’s hope for a second connection.

“When I came here, he always asked me if I was good, how I was getting on, because we didn’t see each other during the last period in England.

“It’s important that great players such as Cavani, who is a historic player for Uruguay and played in lots of important clubs, want to come and play for Boca.

“I think that speaks very well for the club, and for Argentinian football.”

Even Cavani’s father, Luca, has revealed that he has spoken to his son about a move to Boca Juniors.

He said: “When I told him there was the chance to come here in Argentina to play for Boca, he told me about his situation as well, that he spoke with [manager Juan] Roman [Riquelme] a few times and the option was really appealing to him and he would be interested in the future.”
