Palmeiras, the two-time champion of America, has long been in search of a central marker and, after stumbling upon the hiring of a Chilean footballer, began to follow with interest a reference from Boca: nothing more and nothing less than Marcos Rojo.
“In search of one more defender, Palmeiras evaluates the hiring of Marcos Rojo“, said the UOL portal during this Tuesday.” Red was once again on the radar of the São Paulo team“added ESPN Brazil, ratifying the first information that was published in the neighboring country.
Although no formal proposal came from the player who has a contract with the club until December 2023In Xeneize, there is no interest in getting rid of one of the reinforcements that performed the best in the management of Juan Román Riquelme and who also immediately became one of the leaders of the squad.
Rojo arrived in Boca at the beginning of 2021, from the start it was difficult for him to get into the rhythm and overcome physical problems, but after that first semester was established as a starter in a duo with Carlos Izquierdoz, relegating Carlos Zambrano and Lisandro López.
On the part of the 31-year-old footballer there are no intentions to leave the country after a long career abroad, with steps for Spartak Moscow, Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United. On Monday the preseason began with Boca and, although he is suspended for the start of the Copa Libertadores, he is fully preparing for the return of the competitions.
Palmeiras is looking for him at the request of Portuguese coach Abel Ferreira, the same one that led Verdao to the two-time championship in America, after the arrival of the Chilean Valber Huerta, from the U of Chile, fell due to problems in the medical check-up.
