Argentinian-born striker Dani Osvaldo has found It difficult to hold down a regular spot at his last two teams, only playing 12 times for Inter Milan and scoring six goals.

Osvaldo was shown the door by Inter last month and with Southampton not interested in taking the enigmatic forward back its time for a new adventure, a return to his home country with Boca Juniors.

Ex-Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino brought the Italian international to England after spending a season with him at his Espanyol team in the 2010-11 season. The gamble didn't pay off though, with Osvaldo flooring team-mate Jose Fonte in training before being sent back Serie A as punishment for his poor attitude.

Dreams come true

It's the biggest dream of my life," Osvaldo is quoted as telling Sky Sports News as he arrived in Buenos Aires. "I'm very happy, very nervous about all this... I haven't signed yet so I'm not saying anything for now.

 After two unsuccessful loan spells in Serie A Osvaldo will be on his way to boyhood club in Boca Juniors barring any late breakdown in talks over personal terms, with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.

Will Osvaldo control his temper with Boca

Osvaldo has never been a 30 goals a season player even though in 55 appearances for AS Roma, a haul of 27 goals in cup and league competition with the Giallorossi has been his best goal-scoring record for a single club

The hot-headed player has had a reputation in the past with falling out with coaches and player for his antics on and off the pitch, and with this recent disagreement with Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini proves that position is justified.
