Arsenal star Lucas Torreira has disclosed he wants to leave this summer.
Torreira is currently playing in Spain on-loan with Atletico Madrid, though is now in Argentina after the demise of his mother.
“It’s not a crazy decision because of my mother. I have always said that I want to play for Boca. I’m dying to play for Boca and I will always say it,” Torreira told ESPN Futbol Club Argentina on Thursday.
“The night my mother died, one of the first to hear the news was my agent. I don’t want to play in Europe anymore, I want to play for Boca.
“I want to be close to my family. My father, crying, told me that it was time to play for Boca. I always liked Boca, I’m yet to experience La Bombonera, it’s something that I have deep inside me and I have to indulge myself.
“Hopefully things become clear soon, I have to go back and focus on Atletico. I’m more than proud, I’m calm, my team-mates have supported me.
“I have to be there, no matter how much it hurts, as there’s a month and a half of competition left. Hopefully I can end up winning La Liga.
