United agree deal for Rojo

Sporting Lisbon have sanctioned the sale of Marcos Rojo to Manchester United with winger Nani returning to Portugal as part of the deal.

Argentina international Rojo, 24, on Tuesday morning hinted he was poised to move to Old Trafford and become part of Louis van Gaal's squad, and Sporting have now confirmed his departure.

Tweets published through the Primeira Liga club's official account welcomed Nani to the Estadio Jose Alvalade while announcing United had also given Sporting nine million euros to help construct their new indoor arena, the Pavilhao, in exchange for securing Rojo's services.
