BRFCS Content Posted January 19, 2011 Share Posted January 19, 2011 Published: Wednesday, 19 January 2011 Juan For Rovers by BRFCS News Multiple sources have confirmed to BRFCS.com that Rovers have been offered the chance to sign legendary Argentinean midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme. Sources have indicated that the player is interested in moving to Rovers, should the club choose to pursue this. Sources have also revealed that initial talks between Rovers' representatives and Riquelme's representatives have taken place. Riquelme is regarded as one of the most technically gifted players in recent history and would certainly represent a coup for the club as well as a clear statement of intent from Venky's, particularly in light of the recent failed attempts to sign Ronaldinho and Beckham. Rovers' new owners have indicated in recent interviews that they are looking to bring in a high profile player to the club and Argentinean playmaker Riquelme would certainly fit the bill. Indeed co-owner Balaji Rao told The Times of India this week "I assure you we'll get a 'big name' playing for us pretty soon." There will be a lot more on this developing story tomorrow as we believe that this story is going to be covered in greater depth tomorrow morning in the Lancashire Telegraph with on-the-record comments from key sources. ------- Join in our discussion on the subject here Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
