Manchester United has moved quickly to add experience to a squad beaten 2-1 by Swansea on Saturday.
Sky Sports Italy reports that United is set to sign Argentine international defender Marcos Rojo to a four-year deal on a $29 million transfer fee from Sporting Lisbon. As part of the deal, Portugal international winger Nani will also be returning to the club that handed him his professional debut on a year-long loan. Both players will have medicals at their new clubs to finalize the transaction.
Rojo, 24, is a left-sided central defender, a position that manager Louis van Gaal greatly wished to bolster. A product of the Estudiantes academy, Rojo has spent the last two seasons with Sporting after coming over from Spartak Moscow. He featured in all six of Argentina's World Cup matches in Brazil and scored in the team's 3-2 victory over Nigeria in the round of 16.
Nani, 27, has spent the past six seasons with United since coming over from Sporting in 2007. With the club, he's won four BPL titles, four FA Cups and the 2008 Champions League title. In 147 appearances with the Red Devils, he's scored 25 times.
