Speaking to Olé, 24-year-old Argentinian goalkeeper Agustin Rossi’s agent confirmed an offer from Ligue 1 club Montpellier for the player’s services, who is currently contracted to Boca Juniors.
“Montpellier is a nice opportunity for the continuity of Agustín’s career. The offer made is a loan with an obligation to buy… €6m, similar to what is being offered by Udinese. For the moment, it does not meet the demands of Boca but it is a way of opening negotiations. Now, we are waiting for a response from Boca in order to advance. This loan is the equivalent to a sale because the option to buy is obligatory. The payment would be made in two or three instalments.”
Under contract with Boca until 2023, Rossi has been relegated to second position in the goalkeeping hierarchy at his club and he is seeking a departure.
