Carlos Salcedo's career will most likely continue with Toronto FC of the MLS, a team that has already shown interest in the Mexican defender and approached Tigres. 

The Mexican international could join Italian Lorenzo Insigne, as the Napoli player recently signed his contract to play for the Canadian side. The European international champion is set to join the MLS outfit in the summer. The former Pescara player will play for Napoli until the end of the season. Currently, the Italian playmaker was injured just a day after confirming his arrival at Toronto FC.

With the addition of the Napoli player to the club, could make the negotiations easier for Tigres UANL and Carlos Salcedo. The Mexican team believes that selling the center-back right now is better than waiting for the player's contract to expire. On the other hand, Carlos Salcedo is evaluating his options as he has other offers from other teams but Toronto’s one seems a good option for the Guadalajara native.

The former Eintracht Frankfurt could be tempted to join the Mapple squad as the project that the Canadian team is building is ambitious and the goals they had in front could be of Carlos Salcedo’s interests. 

Toronto FC have been watching the player situation

After first scouting the Titan, the Canadians took a firm step forward with the intention of signing the experienced defender, whose contract expires in December 2022 and who has not renewed with the felines. 

According to Mediotiempo, they confirmed that there has already been an initial approach and talks for Salcedo to join Toronto. 

Salcedo has been in the eyes of three important teams, Toronto, Wolverhampton from England and Palmeiras from Brazil, as he has no chance of continuing with Tigres. 

The same source confirmed that Tigres is open to negotiate, and it is not even ruled out that part of the payment for the defender could be a player from the MLS who joins the felines. 

Salcedo, part of Bradley's MLS plan 

The intention of Bob Bradley's team is to put together a squad to fight for MLS, CONCACAF Championships and to attend the Club World Cup. The ambitious projects of the team plus the arrival of Insigne may be decisive in the Titan's decision.

Meanwhile, Salcedo is preparing to start this Wednesday with Tigres against Santos Laguna in round 1 of the Clausura 2022. The match was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Tigres squad but was rescheduled for January 12.
