Cruz Azul would discard him and Pumas UNAM wants him as a reinforcement because of his experience, so Andrés Lillini has already asked the team's board of directors to ask La Máquina for the opportunity to bring him to the Universitario club.
More news about Cruz Azul:
As the summer transfer market is already starting, Liga MX teams are already starting to ask for players to strengthen the weakest areas of their squads, in order to strengthen them and have a better result in the next tournament.
And it is surprising to see how there are teams that are willing to give up players that for one reason or another have become references in their teams, in order to reinforce their lineups, so the probable departure of a Cementero player left their fans surprised.
Cruz Azul is about to discard a player who has never worn other colors
It is Rafael Baca, the player that the Cementero team is considering letting leave in this summer transfer market and, according to reports in the Mexican press, is of interest to Pumas UNAM.
According to rumors, the 32-year-old midfielder is in the sights of several Liga MX teams and one of those that sounds strong is Pumas UNAM, who are looking to strengthen the team in order to have a better performance in the next tournament.
It is worth mentioning that Andrés Lillini himself has already told the club's board of directors that it is necessary to strengthen the team since it is not possible to give results to the club using only homegrown players.
And considering that several players could also leave the Universitario club, it is easy to understand the team's interest in the Cruz Azul player.
Why would Rafael Baca leave Cruz Azul?
Baca's performance in the Cementero team has probably not been the best in recent times, but apparently, the urgency for La Máquina to place him in another team is due to the fact that the player has had a total rupture with the team's fans.
For some time now, the player has suffered very harsh criticism from the Cementero fans, which has resulted in the player's Twitter account being filled with insults and insults, so the board has apparently decided that the healthiest thing to do is for the player to leave the club.
Since Baca arrived in Mexico from Major League Soccer's San Jose Earthquakes, he has not played for any other Liga MX team.
He has played 290 games for La Máquina and in those matches has scored 8 goals and provided 7 assists, and was crowned with the Cementero team in the Guard1anes 2021 Tournament, which was also part of the club's feat of breaking the title drought that the team suffered for more than 24 years.
