Juan Roman Riquelme is always in the centre of the action when it comes to football and the Boca Juniors and that is the situation once again in the summer of 2014. The talented attacking midfielder has been offered a contract from the Boca Juniors that the team president has stated is "the highest contract in the history of the team and was beyond what was budgeted."
However, Juan Roman Riquelme is a free agent and thus his services can go to the highest bidder and it seems that the Brazilian team Sport Recife has provided him a very handsome offer of $315 000 per month plus a bonus objective and revenue sharing advertising.
Negotiations between Juan Roman Riquelme and the team have reportedly been at a standstill for the past several days and things became very tense to the point that Carlos Bianchi, the DT of the team, openly stated that the team needs him with a very concerned and worried look on his face.
It is rumoured that the management of the team is looking to make contact with the player and his management team to resume negotiations but it is intriguing to some footballer insiders that the player has been silent in recent days which gives rise to the belief that the offer from the Brazilian side is almost too good to pass up.
Juan Roman Riquelme is a player who still has some quality football left in him as illustrated by the offers provided him but he knows his career cannot last forever and some offers may be too lucrative to pass on.
Will the Boca Juniors match the offer of Sport Recife or is 2014 the last year that Juan Roman Riquelme, the Boca Juniors legend plays for the team in his career? Uncertainty and drama are the words of the moment when one thinks of Juan Roman Riquelme and his potential future with the Boca Juniors.
