Fox Sports have reported that the Argentine international is in Lisbon collecting his permit and will fly back to Manchester today.

Rojo started for Argentina in their 4-2 friendly victory over Germany in Dusseldorf last night.

The 24-year-old has already missed three United matches since he signed for the club from Sporting Lisbon for £16m last month.

The BBC had reported that the hold-up in Rojo's obtaining the permit was because of a criminal investigation for an incident in his native Argentina back in 2010. It is understood that Rojo strongly denies any wrongdoing.

Rojo entered the UK to complete his move to United on a tourist visa.

National team-mate Angel Di Maria was able to secure a work permit because he has also holds an Italian passport.
