The striker of the glorious Argentine side will not leave his current club soon. Boca Juniors’ President Angelici firmly believes his player will stay until the end of his mandate.
Daily transfer market rumors flood the fans with hopes and disappointments. When a name is linked to a club for a long time, something true is there and could reveal a possible imminent agreement. But the story between Roma and Benedetto seems to be blocked by an agreement between the president of the club and the player himself.
“I’ve spoken with El Pipa [Dario Benedetto’s nickname]. As recognition for what he has done with the club over the past few years, he will remain at least until the end of the year when my mandate will expire in December,” said Boca Juniors‘ President Daniel Angelici to the Argentine radio station La Red as reported on the Argentine portal Ole.com.ar
“Dario is feeling good here and as much as an offer may arrive today, he will remain until the end of the year.”
The striker is reportedly chased by several teams but rumors from Argentina were reporting on Roma’s interest in Dario Benedetto. The giallorossi know the Argentine striker could replace the Bosnia international Edin Dzeko who could be traded out next summer.
The 28-year-old from Berazategui (Argentina) has scored 3 goals and 1 assist in 1,032 minutes so far. He joined Boca Juniors on July 1, 2016, from the Mexican side America for about $5 million.
