Marcos Rojo Found Out His Manchester United Career Was Over On Social Media
The 30-year-old centre-back, who joined United from Sporting CP in 2014 for a reported fee of £16 million, made a total of 122 appearances under the likes of Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and most recently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He last played for the club in November 2019 against Brighton and never managed to break into the first-team squad again after a number of injuries - as well as a loan spell at Estudiantes last season.
The defender is now all set to make his debut for Boca but his departure from Old Trafford has been soured somewhat by claims that Rojo found out that his contract would not be extended on social media.
ESPN report that Rojo was still waiting to hear from officials at the club as to whether he would receive a 12-month extension on his deal when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced that United had decided to let him leave.

This incident happened back in January, when Solskjaer updated the media about Rojo's future in a press conference.
"Both of them [Rojo and Sergio Romero] have contracts until the summer and they're not going to be extended." said the Norwegian on January 8th.
Rojo's start to life at Boca Juniors hasn't exactly gone to plan after it was announced on Friday that the Argentine centre-back suffered an injury in his first training session with the club.
It is believed the defender was forced to leave the pitch because of an injury sustained 'due to inactivity'.
