The Aguilas are used to winning, but apparently this time they lost, as, among the Liga MX 2022 rumors, the news that Pachuca beat Club America to the signing of Jesus Trindade has just gained momentum.
Despite the fact that the Tuzos would have beaten the Aguilas, they are not worried about in Copa, as they have just signed Jonathan Dos Santos, from whom much is expected this season.
However, it is a stroke of authority for a team from outside the Mexican capital to have won the signing from one of the most powerful teams in the country.
How did Club America lose Jesus Trindade to Pachuca?
The Mexican media followed up on this story and everything seems to indicate that while America was reviewing all their options, Pachuca went all in for the Uruguayan.
It seems that everything happened because Club America is keeping an eye on the situation of Pedro Aquino, a player who was said last week that he will probably leave for Europe.
Mexican media suggest that a Premier League team is looking for the player, but they have not specified which team it is.
However, this news has put the Aguilas and their need to find a replacement for the player on alert.
That is where Jesus Trindade, who was of interest to America, comes into the story to replace Aquino. But while this was happening, another move was taking place.
Renato Ibarra left America to play for Xolos de Tijuana, leaving the club with a free foreigner spot. Therefore, there was a combination of having two free positions and a free place for a foreign player.
But while the Aguilas were trying to make a decision while on standby, Pachuca got ahead of the negotiations, put everything on the table, and beat America to the Uruguayan.
Where does Jesus Trindade come from?
The player was born in El Salto, Uruguay, and is currently 28 years old. His natural position is that of a midfielder, although he can play on both wings.
He spent his formative years in Racing Club de Montevideo and since 2019 he signed for Peñarol. Since his arrival at that club, the player played 121 games in which he scored five goals and provided ten assists.
In his career with the Charrúa club, the player had a very good performance in defense as he recorded 49 successful defensive tackles, in addition to 722 successful passes.
The arrival of the reinforcement, if it materializes, was promoted by Uruguayan Guillermo Almada, Pachuca's current coach, and Iván Alonso, the team's sporting director.
However, before making his signing official, the Tuzos will have to pass two more tests: the first is that the player passes all the medical examinations.
The second is that the Mexican team's board of directors would have to release or accommodate Ismael Sosa or Matías Catalán, two foreigners who are not part of the team's plans for the 2022 Clausura Tournament.
On the other hand, America still needs to find reinforcements for its forward line, a demand that the club's fans have not stopped making to the team's board of directors.
