BUENOS AIRES, May 11 (Xinhua) -- Former Bayern Munich and Germany international forward Lukas Podolski could join Boca Juniors when football resumes from its coronavirus shutdown, according to his agent.
"I don't think it's impossible that Boca sign Podolski," agent Rodrigo Codas told local radio station Mundo Boca. "We agreed to talk in the middle of the year. Boca are the most influential team in South America."
Podolski, who is contracted to Turkey's Antalyaspor until June next year, has long been linked with a move to South America. The 34-year-old World Cup winner has regularly expressed an admiration for Argentinian and Brazilian football and often interacts with fans from both countries on social media.
"We are talking about a world champion player," Codas said. "If he said that he wants to come to Boca, it's because he really does. When I spoke with him, he also showed an interest in getting involved in marketing, which would work well at Boca."
Podolski retired from international football in 2017 after 130 appearances for Germany's national team and 49 goals. Enditem
