Reports: Riquelme wants Roger Martínez as Boca’s reinforcement

Once again, Boca Juniors’ interest in Roger Martínez revived, after Juan Román Riquelme has the América striker as a priority

America’s forward, Roger Martínez, would be Boca Juniors’ first option to reinforce the team for the Copa Libertadores, which failed to convince Edinson Cavani and who will renew with Manchester United.

According to TyC Sports from Argentina the 26-year-old forward is the wish of Juan Román Riquelme, who is currently vice president of the team and head of the Professional Soccer Council.

According to the South American media “Boca set its eyes on Roger Martínez ”, a player who finished training in Argentine soccer and had good moments with Boca and Racing.

The main problem that the media points out and that within the same Azulcrema team they have made clear is that Roger will only be able to leave with an offer of at least 10 million dollars. This figure puts the Xeineze team in a predicament, since they do not have that figure to seek their services.

“Roger Martínez made his Academy debut in a 2013 game for the Copa Sudamericana, in which the team lost 2-1 to Lanús. His first official match in the Argentine tournament was also with defeat, but 3-1 against Tigre. In 2014, Diego Cocca decided to ignore it and the Colombian went on loan to Santamariana. Later, his career strengthened in Aldosivi and in 2016 he returned to Racing to complete a campaign with eight goals in 18 games played. China was his destiny ”, reads the text.

Edinson winked at Boca in 2019 when he mentioned to the media “I want to hang from the wiring of the Bombonera like Manteca Martínez did.” Despite this, the team could not seduce the footballer who plays for Manchester United.

For its part, Roger Martínez regained confidence in the Eagles, where he has added minutes under the orders of Santiago Solari, who has considered him in the present Guard1anes 2021 and after the footballer recognized that he only “needed minutes” to show himself.

Roger has been a controversial player within the Coapa team, since in the last two years he did not miss an opportunity to seek his departure from the team, but this has refused to open the doors for him.

The team has made it clear that the footballer cannot go for a low offer, as the club paid $ 14 million for his services to Villarreal of Spain.

The center forward has been active in recent days and has taken advantage of the injury suffered by Mexican striker Henry Martín.
