Trezeguet: Set for South American move
TREZEGUET SET FOR RIVER PLATE MOVE
Former France striker David Trezeguet has undergone a medical with River Plate ahead of a proposed move, the Argentinian club have confirmed.
The 34-year-old was in Buenos Aires on Friday for tests and is expected to sign a two-and-a-half-year contract on Monday.
After undergoing his medical, he told Argentinian newspaper Ole: "I have to wait for the results, but I could say everything is perfect. Everything went as planned.
"On Monday, there will be no problem. It will be finalised."
Trezeguet, who joined Bani Yas from Spanish side Hercules but left the United Arab Emirates team earlier this month after only two appearances, has already set his sights on getting River back in the Argentinian top flight following their shock relegation last season.
The Frenchman, a World Cup and European Championship winner with Les Bleus, added: "It will be a big thrill to represent River.
"The goal is to put River back in the first division. I had a similar experience at Juventus.
"For my part, I am coming to do the same here - trying to get River back where it belongs, which is in the top division. I can bring experience."
