Riquelme Begins To Sound With Atlético

The Colchonero faithful begin to look at the possible arrival of Juan Román Riquelme to the Vicente Calderón as a reality.

The Villarreal star has now mentioned that he intends to return to the Yellow Submarine and finish out his contract. He now knows that coach Manuel Pellegrini has no plans to use him, so he might rot on the bench during that time.

Now with the possible departure of Fernando Torres and the eminent arrival of Diego Forlán, Riquelme’s name is being thrown into the mix more as a fill in than anything else. He is considered an extra accessory in the brand new car. In other words, they are willing to talk to Atlético since they, and not Valencia, would be willing to take Riquelme as well in the deal.

Here is where the plot thickens… Sergio Agüero, Cléber Santana, are non-EC players. Add the possibility of Elle joining the club and that would put them in a tough situation to get the Argentine international.

Currently Boca Juniors are doing everything in their power to retain his service until they would have to go and play in the World Club Cup in Japan. The club has started a opened up a toll-free mnumber where you can donate money to the club in order to raise the € 1 million that are needed to keep him.
