Tigre confirm talks with Riquelme

Club Atletico Tigre are doing their best to sign veteran playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme, according to the mayor of Buenos Aires province Tigre.

Tigre are the latest club to have joined the race for the Boca Juniors icon, after Palmeiras and Cruzeiro both failed to lure the former Argentina international.

City mayor Sergio Massa aims to help the club sign Riquelme and has asked the most successful companies in the area to help fund the transfer.

“We will try to convince Roman and find a way out of Boca for all those who want to see him play football at Tigre,” Sergio Massa told Radio 10.

“We are making a great effort, and we are asking the most important companies in the area to help us.”

While Riquelme is free to leave Boca Juniors for a foreign club, los Xeneize are requesting a $2.1 million compensation if the player moves to another Argentine club.

Tigre will first attempt to reach an agreement with the player’s representatives before they try and agree a transfer fee with Boca Juniors.

Despite not making a competitive appearance since July 2012, Riquelme is still held in high regard by top clubs across South America.
