New York native Gaitan joins Boca Juniors
American midfielder Nick Gaitan is set to join Argentine powerhouse Boca Juniors.
The 16-year old New Yorker has been tracked by the club since August last year and admits he cannot believe he is getting the opportunity to go to a club with such great tradition and history.
"It's not every day a kid gets to play for Boca Juniors, especially an American kid," Gaitan told MLSsoccer.com.
And Gaitan is not short on setting lofty targets for his career which will kick off in the youth academy that has produced such names as Diego Maradona, Carlos Tevez and Juan Roman Riquelme.
