Boca's Calleri set to complete Inter switch

The highly rated 22-year-old striker is on the verge of completing a move to Italy but will either remain in Argentina or join Bologna on loan for the next six months

Inter are set to sign Boca Juniors forward Jonathan Calleri but the 22-year-old will not join up with his new club until the summer.

The former All Boys striker caught the attention of European clubs with an excellent 2015 season, striking up a partnership with Carlos Tevez during the latter half of the year. 

Boca president Daniel Angelici has confirmed that Inter will win the race for Calleri’s signature but he will either remain in Argentina or sign for Bologna on loan for the next six months.

“The Calleri deal is very advanced, we will probably complete it this week,” he told TyC Sports, explaining that the presence of an English investment group had delayed matters. 

“We are asking for all the documentation the (anti-money laundering office) UIF request over the origins of the money.” 

Club vice-president Juan Carlos Crespi says Inter have a “verbal agreement” to sign Calleri.

“Whether he goes now or in the middle of the year is the player’s decision,” Crespi added. 

“The club he is going to want him from June onwards. He could play those six months in Bologna too. 

“It will be his decision, if he wants to continue with Boca or in Europe.”
