It will become official in the next 24 hours, since Atletico's President was at Sevilla for Puerta's funeral. The agreement is for 2 years with option for a 3rd ... and seems that Roman has agreed for a reduction of his wages to 3 million Euros per year, the same wage reduction he had offered Boca. The transfer would be for 10 million Euros ... Boca had presented an offer that was too low for Villarreal's expectations, something close to US$13 million. The reasoning is that Roman would be a free agent in 2 years ... yet the total amount of the transaction, asked by Villarreal, would had represented Boca something close to US$25 million. The money was there, yet it is very steep for South American standards. Atletico Madrid will have to free one of the non-EU spots they have for Riquelme before Friday. The players that are non-EU at the moment are: Aguero, Fabiano Eller & Cleber Santana. At least we can enjoy watching Roman and Aguero play together. .
