Palmeiras have made an approach to sign Juan Roman Riquelme, coach Gilson Kleina has admitted.

The Argentine retired earlier this season but may make a comeback to the sport, with the relegated Palmeiras keen on his signature.

"Hes a big name, a reference," Kleina told Fox Sports.

"Who would not want to have a player of that quality? Palmeiras made a proposal, we will wait for his decision. The only situation that we need to see are his conditions.

"Long time not playing. The coach who came to Boca, Bianchi, loves Riquelme and has affinity. I see with good eyes what is happening."
