Former Argentina national player Aguero enjoyed the thrill of winning the Premier League title alongside Balotelli during their shared stint at Manchester City in 2012. Their collaboration resulted in a memorable goal on the last day of that season, snatching the English top-flight crown from arch-rivals Manchester United.

Aguero recently reunited with Balotelli during a Watch Along stream, coinciding with City’s clinching of another Premier League title in 2024. Pep Guardiola’s squad has been rewriting record books during a period of unparalleled domestic dominance.

During the broadcast, the enigmatic Italian striker Balotelli expressed his preference for Boca Juniors over River Plate when discussing Argentine football. He disclosed his dream of playing at La Bombonera to his former teammate. Aguero promptly contacted Boca’s head, Riquelme, conveying Balotelli’s aspiration through a voice message. He informed Riquelme that Balotelli’s desire is to join Boca and that he will become a free agent in June.

Currently playing for Adana Demirspor in Turkey, Balotelli’s contract will expire this summer. At 33 years old, he might have the opportunity to move to South America, with Boca demonstrating their readiness to invest in experienced goal-scorers, as seen in their acquisition of Edinson Cavani.
