Salvio, who played in Europe with both Benfica and Atletico Madrid, is back playing in his home country, having moved to Boca in 2019, nine years after leaving South America.

On Thursday morning former wife Magali Aravena, who he recently split from after 10 years together, reported the midfielder for 'running her over.'

Argentine outlet Ole reported that Aravena said the 31-year-old drove his car at her in the early hours of Thursday morning in the Puerto Madero suburb of Buenos Aires.

A police spokesperson said, "The woman went over to speak with her husband, who was in his car with another woman.

"The suspect drove forward, and struck Mrs Aravena."

Aravena did go to hospital following the incident but Buenos Aires ambulance chief Alberto Crescenti revealed that the injuries were only minor.

"We were called by city police, and found a woman with trauma to her lower right leg," Crescenti said.

"However the injury was light, and she wasn't taken to hospital."

A source close to the investigation added, "Prosecutors are working to collect evidence. Salvio won't escape from the police. They have learned about what happened from the report his wife made."

Ole say that the video does not represent the entire story that has been told.

Salvio moved to Atletico Madrid in 2010, having started his career with Lanus, and won the Europa League in 2010 and 2012 with the Spanish giants.

His move to Benfica saw him win the league on five occasions, and get two more Europa League final, which were lost, and he's also won the league in Argentina since moving to Boca.
