After the signing of former Cruz Azul player Roberto Alvarado, Chivas de Guadalajara are still seeking more players to add to their roster. The Rebaño Sagrado Technical Director Ricardo Peláez said to the press that this transfer window has been hard to find players that can fit the team´s aims.
Although the board of directors of the Guadalajara club is not currently in the best financial position to cover extravagant expenses, there are two possible candidates to reinforce the second most successful side in Liga MX: Jürgen Damm and Marco Fabián.
Jürgen Damm’s name has been heard of and linked to Chivas de Guadalajara last days but nothing clear has happened. However, the rojiblancos squad still have the chance to take the player from the MLS side Atlanta United.
Meanwhile, Marco Fabián is interested in returning to what was his home years ago. The former Mexican national soccer player wore the Chivas jersey in three different stints for a total of 7 years and a half. The Guadalajara native is looking for another stint with his beloved club.
Ricardo Peláez to decide what is best for the team
According to Fernando Cevallos, Fox Sports journalist, both players are willing to lower their salaries with the aim of playing for the rojiblancos squad. Both Jürgen Damm and Marco Fabián would be 100% committed to the team in order to strengthen it for next season. Ricardo Peláez will have the last word as the players are already willing to reduce their salaries. Financial problems could be the primary reason for the club to not bring the Mexican players.
In his last press conference, Peláez was clear: "everyone is a contender to join Chivas as long as they have the desire to earn a place inside the club," as his goal is to return to being a protagonist in Mexican soccer football.
So far, no further details have been revealed about the arrival of Damm and Fabián, but if the deal is completed, the club would be a strong contender to lift the Mexican trophy.

The 29-year-old hadn´t had the performances he wanted since he moved to Atlanta to play for the five stripes. The former Tigres and Pachuca player has appeared in 27 games for the MLS side in two seasons. The game’s average for a player to play in a good season is 27 fixtures, meanwhile, Jürgen played half of the average matches in both seasons.
The Tuxpan native has just scored once for Atlanta United and assisted three times during his stay with the MLS team. Due to the player has not been able to adapt, he is looking to return to Mexico to get more playing time and be considered by Gerardo Martino for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
