The idea of Boca’s board is to convince the steering wheel not to renew with São Paulo’s Alviverde to acquire it free of charge, still this season
O Boca Juniors is interested in having the steering wheel Felipe Melo this season. According to “ESPN”, the board of the club “xeneize” sought representatives of the player of the Palm Trees to try to hire him at the end of his contract with Alviverde paulista. The idea is that he does not renew with Verdão and is free to sign with the Buenos Aires team. Still, on social media, the Argentine fans were divided on the possibility of having the experienced athlete, 37 years old.
Many Boca Juniors fans were afraid that Felipe Melo was at the end of his career and remembered the Italian De Rossi, who was acquired after a long stint at Roma, but failed to deliver what was expected. “Does not make sense. Especially thinking about what Boca needs in the midfield: Dynamics and multifunctionality ”, analyzed an Argentine fan, on Twitter.“ We don’t have a ‘nine’, but we are going to get Felipe Melo. What a disaster, ”commented another.
Part of the Boca fans, however, showed enthusiasm for having a player who has already shown willingness to play for the Bombonera team. “Felipe Melo? Where do I sign? I’m going to pick him up right now in Brazil and left him at Ezeiza’s building [aeroporto da capital argentina]”. “I close with him right now, regardless of age. He’s a ‘beast’ and a Boca supporter, ”said another.
