Fluminense in talks with Ex-Boca star Riquelme
Fluminense are in talks with Argentinean star Juan Roman Riquelme over a possible move to Rio de Janeiro.
Club vice-president, Sandro Lima, says an informal offer has already been made for the Argentine playmaker, reports Xinhua.
“We have already sent Riquelme some figures,” Lima said. “There are some other details that need to be discussed before we can say we have made a definitive proposal.
“We are taking our time. It depends more on where he wants to play. We know that there are other clubs interested too.”
Riquelme has been out of football after leaving Boca Juniors in July last year after a 1-3 aggregate loss to Brazil’s Corinthians in the Copa Libertadores final.
Fluminense would not need to negotiate with Boca as the player is a free agent after terminating his contract with the club by mutual consent.
