In recent years, Tigres is known by spending a lot of money to build a team that is constantly fighting to be Liga MX’s top team. They’ve signed big international players like Gignac or Thauvin, but on occasions they overpay for players that don’t perform up to standards.
That’s what happened with Carlos Salcedo, who arrived to Los Felinos from Eintracht Frankfurt on 2019 for $10 million, according to Transfermarkt. And now, the Mexican defender has a foot out of Tigres but thew won’t recover half of what they paid for him.
Brazilian side Palmeiras already made an offer for the Mexican international but they’re only willing to pay $3 million for his permanent transfer. If Tigres accepts the offer, they will lose $7 million in an investment that didn’t pay off for Los Felinos.
Salcedo could move to Europe
Palmeiras is not the only interested in acquiring the 28-year-old center-back. Primeira Liga side Porto also wants to add Salcedo, as their coach, Sérgio Conceição, is looking to strengthen Porto’s defensive side and has Salcedo as one of his options to do it.
