“Your dream and that of the Pincha family come true. We meet again. We are thanking you for coming back, Marcos. We welcome you with our hearts.”

Solskjaer had earlier suggested that Rojo would not be sold in the winter window, as he remains under contract at old Trafford until 2021.

Rojo was in attendance for the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium, taking his place among the fans during the 1-0 victory.

He made 43 appearances for Estudiantes between 2008 and 2011, before moving to Europe to play for Russian giants Spartak Moscow.
