Dortmund set for Balerdi talks with Boca president
Borussia Dortmund are set to meet with Boca Juniors boss Daniel Angelici to negotiate for Leonardo Balerdi.
With Manuel Akanji potentially out for the rest of the season, Borussia Dortmund have possibly found a replacement for him in Argentina - Boca Juniors' Leonardo Balerdi.

Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici has confirmed the Bundesliga club's interest and now wants to meet with representatives from Dortmund who are reportedly ready to pay €16 million for the 19-year-old centre-back this month.
"I told his representative that we don't want to sell the player. But we have to face reality," Angelici told La Red and added:
"I will meet the Dortmund leadership. I'll tell them the club's position, and then we'll see how it ends."
Balerdi has made five appearances for Boca Juniors.
