The arrival of interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has not made life easy for the Argentinian, with the tactician preferring the duo of Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof at the heart of United defense.

According to a report by Evening Standard, United granted the centre-back a special permission to train with his former club as he celebrated his 29th birthday.

Estudiantes confirmed the news, sharing a photo of Rojo on their official Twitter account in a training session with the squad to further fuel a potential exit of the defender in the summer.
