The euphoria for the arrival of Darius Benedetto covered, due to the sporting and above all sentimental weight that his name has, the fact that The Football Council of Juan Román Riquelme finally -after five transfer markets and a lot of candidates- got a 9 for Boca! Because Pipa, nothing less than Pipa, will be the new reinforcement, since the return operation was a resounding success. However. What day will Darío Ismael arrive in Argentina?
The agreement between the parties is complete. Olympique de Marseille, until now owner of Benedetto’s pass, gave its approval to Boca’s proposal, which He would buy the entire pass from the striker who in 2019 sold the French team for 18,000,000 euros. In fact, it is expected that between Tuesday and Wednesday the 31-year-old footballer can return to Argentina, start with the medical review process and obviously the signing of the new contract, which would be three seasons.
The plenary that put the Football Council
But also, without a doubt, if the success of the return operation reverberated so strongly, it was because there were many parties involved and because it seemed very complicated to come to fruition. But nevertheless, the debt that Elche has with Boca for Marcone, added to the sales of Lisandro López to Tijuana, plus the money that Defense would put for 50 percent of Walter Bou’s pass made it possible.
Just as it was also made possible by Benedetto’s great desire to return to wear the shirt with which he played 76 times, scored 45 goals and won three titles. It was even Pipa himself who broke the ice in the middle of Christmas last year when he publicly said that “It’s not crazy that I’m going back to Boca.”
And it wasn’t just, since In the next few hours, the 9th will board a plane from Europe and will return not only to the club of which he is a fan, but also to the one where he will aim to recover physically and football-wise, and, obviously, insist again on the long-awaited Seventh. Yes, #ElPipaVuelve.
