Orbelín Pineda left Cruz Azul at the beginning of the year with the illusion of conquering soccer in the European Continent and that goal is still intact, but he would have to adjust some changes in his future in order not to be left out of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and to have a greater projection to return to El Tri.
Liga MX News:
Currently, Maguito has played 73 minutes with Celta de Vigo in the Spanish LaLiga, practically nothing, and it is not the player's fault, only that since his arrival there have been complications, first and foremost is that he was not a player desired by the coach Eduardo Coaudet, who has not fielded Orbelin in almost any game.
The Apertura 2022 is coming to an end and in Spain, the tournament is just two weeks away from ending, just when the movements begin in the transfer window for this summer, and through the "Barra Brava" column, it was revealed that the Mexican could return to his country.
If it were up to Orbelín, he would stay in Europe, but he is worried that the coach of the Mexican National Team, Gerardo Tata Martino, will not call him up, when previously, while he was at Cruz Azul, he was one of the mainstays during most of the World Cup qualifiers.
And that is why he has asked his agent to look for options for the second half of the year, therefore he does not see with bad eyes the possibility of returning to Mexican soccer even if it is not with the Celestes, because the options are open since what he is looking for is to stand out to win back the confidence of the tricolor coach and after a good World Cup could return him back to the other side of the ocean.
Which teams could go for Orbelín?
Orbelín Pineda costs US$6 million according to Transfermarkt, and only a few teams could pay that amount for the Mexican. In the first instance, Monterrey and Tigres could bid for the services of the former Cruz Azul player, since they have the economic power to do so.
Monterrey, given its failure and low level, could bet on Orbelín, who could play as a winger or as an inside midfielder and would reinforce a squad that has several players who may not continue with Los Rayados.
Tigres could also sign the player, however, they have a more complete squad with good players, so it is difficult for Miguel Herrera to ask him for his team for the Apertura 2022.
América is the other team that appears as an option and maybe they could bet on the player, however, for the Clausura 2022 they reinforced with Alejandro Zendejas and Diego Valdés, so it is difficult for them to bet again a semester later on a player with similar characteristics to those players.
The last two teams that could bring Pineda back are Chivas and Cruz Azul, teams with which he has already played and already know him, however, with the Celestes he did not want to renew and they probably do not want him back, while in El Rebaño he could return without a problem, everything will depend on how Ricardo Peláez moves to return the player to the Rojiblancos.
