Inter Milan to complete Jonathan Calleri deal this week - Boca chief
Boca Juniors forward Jonathan Calleri is nearing a move to Inter Milan, club president Daniel Angelici comfirmed on Monday.
Calleri, 22, helped Boca to a Primera Division title in 2015, scoring 10 times in 25 matches for the Argentine giants over the campaign.
In December, Calleri told reporters in South America the two clubs had reached an agreement and he would discuss terms with the Serie A leaders. Now, president Angelici has confirmed it a matter of time before a deal is sealed.

"For Calleri we are asking for all of the documentation that UIF needs for the origin of money," Angelici said.
"The negotiations are very advanced and this week we will close the deal."
Il Corriere dello Sport two weeks ago reported that Inter could opt to send Calleri out on loan so he can gain match time in Serie A. Angelici addressed the situation, and said the decision was up to the player.
"The decision is of [Calleri] if he wants to go now or midway through the year. The club he will be going to want him in June. He could play these six months in Bologna as well," Angelici added. "There will be a decision if he stays in Boca or goes to Europe."
