Palmeiras officials in Buenos Aires for talks with Riquelme
Palmeiras officials are in Buenos Aires to negotiate the transfer of Boca Juniors star Juan Roman Riquelme according to reports in Brazil.
Terra claims that Palmeiras president, Arnaldo Tirone, is in the capital to negotiate a contract with the player.
The publication also cites Ole! who claim that the wages offered to Riquelme would be around £22,500 a week.
Terra disagrees with the figure and claims a higher value at around £32,500 a week although they both agree that a three and a half year contract is on the table.
According to these reports, Tirone is willing to do 'anything' to land Riquelme at Palmeiras in light of the upcoming presidential elections starting in São Paulo on Monday.
Riquelme has had a long history with Boca, starting out there as a youngster before moving to Europe with Barcelona and later Villareal before returning to the club in 2007.
The playmaker made 346 appearances for Boca, scoring 83 goals.
