Monterrey News

Monterrey recently presented its two new signings for the tournament, Luis Romo and Rodolfo Pizarro. The player who arrives from Inter Miami is expected to make his debut for the match, although he is unlikely to be a starter. And Romo is expected to start as he did against Necaxa.  

Cruz Azul News

Pol Fernández, Cruz Azul’s midfielder, could join Boca Juniors for 2 million dollars. After the player traveled to Argentina due to personal issues, he was contacted by the Argentinian club and it seems the proposal they have done to the player is favorable for Pol Fernández. As the player contract expires in June, Cruz Azul would be willing to sell him in order to receive money and not let him go for free at the end of the tournament.
