In addition, América’s board also closed the signing of Alejandro Zendejas, who arrived from Necaxa and who will play as an offensive midfielder under Solari’s orders.
Who is Jorge Meré?
Jorge Meré Pérez was born in Oviedo, Spain on April 17, 1997, from a very young age he was a player in the youth categories of Real Oviedo, however, he became a professional player with Sporting de Gijón. His debut in La Liga of Spain was on September 23, 2015, in a match against Rayo Vallecano.
Since he started in soccer, he has played as a defender, almost always as a center-back in the teams where he has played.
In 2017, Meré was signed by Cologne in the Bundesliga. After four-and-a-half seasons with the Bavarian club, in which Jorge Mére played a total of 100 games, his future has fallen to Mexico to take on an interesting challenge in one of the most competitive leagues in the world.

Álvaro Fidalgo was in charge of welcoming the player born in Oviedo, Spain, through a video on the Azulcrema club's social networks, as both players met in Spain's youth national teams.
"I remember it was September 2004 if my memory serves me correctly, that's when I met you, I remember when we played ball together, we shared unforgettable moments from the very first moment. Life took us on different paths, but we are still friends from afar. "It is a feeling that cannot be described, but here you will always find passion, courage, and glory; now soccer unites us in this exciting new adventure, we are Aguilas, ready to make the flight," said Fidalgo in the video welcoming Jorge Meré.
He has already signed the contract
