Inter, Benfica vying for ‘next Riquelme’

Inter Milan and Benfica are among clubs showing interest in Boca Juniors starlet Matias Rosales, Record has quoted Italian media as saying.

The 18-year-old has shown a great deal of potential playing for the club’s youth teams and he has been likened to La Xeneize icon Juan Roman Riquelme for his style of play.

Inter Milan were the first top side to express their interest back in January, but latest reports suggest that Benfica have joined the chase as well.

Representing Argentina at the Under-20 level, Rosales was even called to the senior national team as a late replacement for the November friendly against Nigeria.

Even though the creative midfielder is yet to be handed his first team debut, many agree that he has a bright future ahead of him.
