Mexican football clubs start to think about next season and how they will reinforce their squads to face the Clausura 2022. While the 2021 Apertura Final between Atlas and León is not finished yet, other clubs have started to reconstruct their teams in order to improve for the next tournament.
Few confirmed moves have been made while plenty of rumors are heard around the Liga MX. Here we present you both, rumors and confirmed transfers.
Cruz Azul did not wait until December 31 to thank Walter Montoya. The Argentine midfielder is already looking for another destination after he was called to La Noria's offices to thank him for all his efforts and give him his letter of release.
The player's agent is already looking for a team and there is speculation that he could return to Rosario Central, the club where he made his debut in 2014.
Meanwhile, the young Paraguayan striker, Robert Morales, was "sounded out" by the Celeste board of Directors as a reinforcement for the next tournament.
When asked if the Cementeros are interested in Morales' services, Elvio Rojas, the player's agent, answered that they did speak to him asking about Morales, although "there is still no proposal".
Striker Christian Tabó is in Monterrey's plans to sign him for the next tournament and a deal is expected to be completed in the next few hours.
Tabó would arrive at Rayados after his time at Puebla, a club he joined in 2018 and where he has stood out for his performance, which allowed him to take over the starting lineup. In the Apertura 2021, he played 16 matches and scored five goals.
Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell is out of Rayados' plans for the next Mexican soccer tournament and therefore they are already looking for a team for him, so that he can play in the next tournament.
Joel Campbell arrived at Monterrey for the Apertura 2021, participated in 13 games, five of them as a starter, but now he is not considered by coach Javier Aguirre and if he cannot join another club he will remain with the team, so he will return to León for June 2022, since he is on loan for one year.
Chivas of Guadalajara
Chivas player, Alexis Vega, has not yet signed his contract renewal with Guadalajara and, given the possibility that he could leave for free in a year, the board of directors is seriously analyzing the possibility of selling him in this market. They have already valued him at US$10 million.
Tigres are the club that has shown interest for now, as they have already knocked on the door of Verde Valle to inquire about the player's status, but so far nothing has been announced beyond this initial approach.
Tigres president, Mauricio Culebro, assured that Sebastián Cordova is an element of interest to several teams and pointed out that Miguel Herrera coached him at the time, but denied that there is a specific issue with the player.
"I believe that this type of player will always be of interest to several teams, he is a member of the national team, Herrera had him and he and many others will be on the radar because he is a very interesting player, but there are no specific cases," he said.
Rubens Sambueza confirmed his departure from Toluca through his social networks. The now-former captain of the “devils” thanked his teammates, board of directors, and staff for the time he spent during his second period with the Mexican team.
"Today it's my turn to say goodbye to the club. I always gave my all and gave the best of myself. You will always be in my heart. Thank you Toluca," wrote Rubens, who had six more months left on his contract with Toluca.
