Riquelme is the potential big signing
Seems like another big chase is on the cards as Argentine superstar Juan Riquelme is being lined up as the box office signing that the Venkys gang are after.
The agent who has sorted out the Jermaine Jones deal and is linig up the Formica purchase has been a busy little beaver and Riquelme has now been touted as the man to replace Ronaldinho as the Rovers 'marquee' purchase.
Agent Barry McIntosh is quoted in the Lancashire Telegraph as saying - "I have spoken with Jerome Anderson, who is doing a lot of work for Blackburn Rovers, about Riquelme and it is being thought about. He could prove a great alternative to Ronaldinho, but there is nothing definite yet."
Riquelme has previously played for Barcelona but now plays in his homeland for Boca Juniors.
Two outcomes here - universal mockage as the deal falls flat or looks of shock and awe as we pull of a massive coup.
