Boca Juniors supporters have given Daniele De Rossi an amazing welcome as the former Roma midfielder prepares to join the club.
Roma great De Rossi ended a career-long association with the Giallorossi when his contract was not renewed at the end of the 2018-19 season.
De Rossi initially seemed set to confirm his retirement, although he was also linked with a switch to Fiorentina.
Boca appear to have persuaded the 36-year-old to play on, though, and his arrival at an Argentina airport on Wednesday sparked incredible scenes.

The former Italy international made 615 appearances in all competitions for Roma, a number only bettered by his old team-mate Francesco Totti.
De Rossi’s arrival is expected to pave the way for Uruguay star Nahitan Nandez to leave Boca for Cagliari.
