Real Madrid's Fernando Gago wants to move back to Boca Juniors - agent

The Argentine midfielder is eager to return to his former club and allegedly is open to the idea of a reduction in his wages in order to move back to his home nation
Real Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago is desperate to return to Boca Juniors, the player's agent Marcelo Lombilla has claimed.

The Argentina international quit Boca for Real Madrid in 2006 for €20.4 million, and despite enjoying a promising start to life at the club, a string of injuries have restricted him to a peripheral role over the last two seasons.

Gago has made no secret that he wants to return to his former club, where he spent over a decade, and the 25-year-old's agent has repeated his client's wish, revealing that the midfielder is willing to take a substantial pay cut in order to complete the switch.

"Fernando's wish is to return to Boca. That is why we will try it. Look at how eager he is [to move to Boca] that I still cannot believe he will give up this much money," Lombilla told Ole.

Reports in Argentina earlier on Monday claimed Boca have already engaged in talks with Real Madrid in hope of signing Gago, who is currently in his homeland recovering from an injury sustained during Copa America.
