Sporting Lisbon left-back Marcos Rojo has confirmed that he is set to join Manchester United after the Portuguese club accepted a bid of £15.9m, the Metro has reported.

The two clubs have been involved in negotiations for several days, with Man Utd having declared their interest in the 24-year-old. An agreement has now finally been reached after a row over third party ownership.


Upon hearing of Man Utd’s interest, Rojo admitted his intention to move to Old Trafford, despite the prospect of missing out on playing Champions League football for Sporting, who finished second in Portugal last season.


Confirming the news, Rojo said: ‘I’m living this like a dream. "It's a dream to play at Manchester United and I am very proud of having the chance of working with [Louis] van Gaal. United are a fantastic club. I spoke to Juan Veron about his opportunity and he gave me some advice. It wasn’t easy to leave Sporting.’


The Argentine, who played in all seven World Cup matches for his country including the final, is the first of what is expected to be a number of signings made by Man Utd before the transfer window shuts. He will agree a five-year contract after completing a medical.
