Just as FC Dallas snatched the signing of Paul Arriola from America, a Portuguese team would do the same with Diego Lainez

The Águilas del América have reportedly found a competitor in a presumed negotiation that has been circulating in the last few days in transfer rumors.

As the opening of the transfer window approaches, rumors begin to flourish. And as is often the case, the Águilas del América are not exempt, even before they have finished their participation in the Torneo Grita México Clausura 2022 of the Liga MX, of which they are a member of the quarterfinals of the Liguilla.

In this regard, in the last few hours, the possibility of Diego Lainez returning to the nest in the next summer market has arisen. Real Betis coach Manuel Pellegrini, after winning the Copa del Rey, would not consider the striker for the upcoming LaLiga season, so the player is already looking at options so as not to lose rhythm in the months leading up to Qatar 2022.

This is where the Águilas would have appeared as a natural alternative, both for the mark left by Diego Lainez in the past and for the possibility of sharing a squad with his brother Mauro. However, the situation and the alleged conversations initiated by the Azulcrema institution would not be so simple.

Which Portuguese team would look for Lainez?

In this regard, the verified Twitter account Kery News reported that the youngest of the Lainez family would not have as a priority to return to Club América and, not only that, but he would also have a proposal from Portugal.

“Diego Lainez has an option in Portugal. His agent is already working on negotiations. For now, it is the only offer they have, but they are still working to look for more alternatives. Lainez does not want to return to Mexico, but if there is no other option, he could go to América to reach Qatar"

However, it has not been said which team is behind the player, it is simply known that it is from the Primera División and that it is interested in the services of the Real Betis player.

How many games has Lainez played for Betis this season?

In this season with Real Betis, Lainez has only played in 13 official matches with the team. Seven were in LaLiga, four in the Europa League, and two in the Copa del Rey, where he scored two goals.

Compared to last season he has played less than half as many games, as he played 28 in the 2020/21 campaign. Since Pellegrini's arrival, Lainez has lost playing time.

What happened to America with Paul Arriola?

The Águilas sought Arriola, who was not going to count as a foreigner due to his past in Tijuana and his Aztec roots, but in the end, DC United preferred to accept Dallas' offer. Although the player wanted to be part of the Azulcrema squad, he accepted in the end the conditions imposed by FC Dallas, a club to which he arrived after a historic agreement between MLS clubs.
