The transfer season does not end in Liga MX 2022 and now, as a surprise, six teams are in the hunt for Carlos Salcedo

The "Titan" has impressed everyone with his performance and, as a result, is wanted by at least two South American giants, a Premier League team, and a candidate to win the Europa League.

As far as it was known, the only team interested in the Mexican central defender was Palmeiras, champion of the Copa Libertadores, which was willing to pay up to 3 million dollars.

However, this figure did not convince coach Miguel Herrera's team, so they were forced to reject the proposal

But to the surprise of many, apart from Palmeiras, there are up to 5 teams that want the player of Tigres, according to Mexican media

The other South American giant wants the "Titan"

The other Brazilian team that would stand between Salcedo and Palmeiras would be Flamengo, according to Bola VIP, since technical director Paulo Sousa likes the physical, tactical, and technical characteristics offered by the "Titan".

Everything seems to indicate that if Palmeiras does not close the signing of Carlos Salcedo by Tuesday of this week at the latest, the chances of the Mexican defender joining Flamengo will increase.

In this team, the Mexican could form a central defense duo with Brazilian David Luiz, who joined Fla in September 2021.

European teams that want the "Titan"

Not more than a few weeks ago, the Hispanatolia and Fotomac media announced that Galatasaray was looking for Salcedo so that he could play at the Nef Stadium, better known as The Hell of Istanbul. 

But after that report, it seems that things did not go as planned for the player to play in the Turkish Super League, although this option cannot be ruled out.

Sometime later, there was also strong talk that Salcedo had already entered the orbit of Porto, a team that currently plays in the Europa League

This team will seriously need to reinforce its defense, which is where Carlos Salcedo specializes since in February they will have to play the Knockout Round Playoffs against Lazio

But it is not the only European team seeking the services of the Mexican central defender. The Premier League could be the place where the player could play. 

Salcedo could become Wolverhampton Wanderers' second Mexican wolf and play alongside Raúl Jiménez, a team that, according to Mediotiempo, is more than interested in the player. 

If this signing goes through, both players could open the way for more Mexicans. 

Toronto FC also wants him to finish building a real machine

Toronto FC just broke the winter transfer market with the acquisition of Lorenzo Insigne

And it wouldn't hurt that, with the forward line armed with someone like Insigne, the defense is now a priority and that's where the "Titan" comes in

And the MLS would not be an unfamiliar scenario for the player, who has already played for Real Salt Lake.
