Javier Saviola seals River Plate return

Argentine striker Javier Saviola has joined River Plate on a free transfer from Hellas Verona, according to L’Equipe.

The 33-year-old underwent a medical yesterday evening and is expected to put pen to paper on a contract during the day.

With his deal at Hellas Verona coming to an end, Saviola decided to return to the club where it all started for him and help the team in the final stages of the Copa Libertadores campaign.

Saviola enjoyed several very successful years at Monumental after coming through the youth ranks as he bagged 45 goals in first 86 league appearances for the club.

In the fourteen years that the forward has plied his trade abroad, he represented Barcelona, Monaco, Sevilla, Real Madrid, Benfica, Malaga, Olympiakos and Hellas Verona, lifting three league titles and a Europa League trophy in the process.

River Plate fans are now eagerly awaiting to see Saviola resume his partnership with Pablo Aimar, with the former Valencia star having recently returned to training after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
