A romantic return to Boca Juniors won’t be happening any time soon for Éver Banega after Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab announced the 31-year-old midfielder will be joining in June.
Banega is out of contract with Sevilla at the end of the season and after rumours that Boca had made approaches during the current transfer window, the Argentinian has now made his next move known.
Six-time Saudi champions Al Shabab have confirmed a three-year deal has been agreed which would take Banega up to his 35th birthday.
