Benfica and Boca Juniors close to Salvio deal

Benfica and Boca Juniors are closing in a completing a move for Salvio, ending the Argentinian wingers time with the Lisbon club. Salvio has been with Benfica on a permanent basis since being acquired in the summer of 2012 from Atletico Madrid after spending a loan spell during the 2010/11 season with the club. Salvio who is looking for playing time has not been given a boost of confidence by current manager Bruno Lage on what his regular playing time would be with the Eagles during the coming season and Boca are very interested in acquiring the winger for their club. 

Salvio was set to earn a €2.2M annual salary with Benfica this season and the clubs are still in negotiations on exactly what the Salvio move will be. Benfica are not interested in a loan move for Salvio to Boca, even though Boca is willing to pay Benfica around €2M for the loan. Benfica will only part with Salvio if Boca are willing to purchase at least 50% of the players rights for an estimated €6M. Salvio has appeared in 266 games for Benfica in all competitions scoring 62 goals and assisting on another 54. Salvio would depart having won 14 club trophies with Benfica.
