Football News
Boca Juniors president Mauricio Macri has confirmed that playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme will not stay with the club next season.

The 28-year-old is on loan from Spanish side Villarreal until the end of the season, but Macri insisted that the move would not become permanent as Boca cannot afford his wages.

"It is impossible," Macri told Argentinian radio network Latina. "It´s out of our range. His salary is the same that Boca pay for all their team together."
