Manchester United are looking to build a relationship with Argentina after signing Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo in the last transfer window.
As reported by the Independent, it appears that the club are looking to make up for the loss of Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.

Next month's clash certainly looks set to be an exciting one, as Di Maria and Rojo will be joined on the pitch by the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United, of course, have previously had Argentine stars in their ranks, with the likes of Gabriel Heinze and Juan Sebastain Veron having starred at the Theatre of Dreams over the years, but now it appears that the club are ready to push the relationship further than ever before.

Of course, the signings of Di Maria and Rojo will help United globally, but the pair have also made an instant impact on the pitch since arriving at the club.
Rojo has played a key role in United's back-line, having starred at left-back and centre-back in his opening few games for the club. Di Maria, meanwhile, has enjoyed a brilliant start in England's elite division after making a huge summer move from Real Madrid. The Argentine ace has already struck three goals and three assists in his opening five fixtures for the club.
Manchester United fans will now be hoping the club can sign a few more top Argentine stars over the next few years. Lionel Messi, perhaps...
