Guillermo Ochoa has been one of Club América's most important players since his return to the club in 2019. The goalkeeper's contract expires at the end of 2022 and his renewal with the Águilas is still up in the air because so far there is no proposal to extend his contract.

According to ESPN, América's board of directors has not yet begun talks with the goalkeeper to renew his contract, which expires at the end of this year, but the intention is for Memo to continue with the team, so this is an issue that should be discussed in the coming weeks to try to reach a satisfactory outcome.
Ochoa could already be negotiating with another team
It should be noted that according to FIFA laws, Ochoa has the right to negotiate with any club as of next summer, so América runs the risk of the Mexican national team's first-choice goalkeeper leaving for free in December and not leaving a profit for the América coffers, without ruling out the possibility that Ochoa may reach a new agreement to stay at the club for a longer period of time.
The goalkeeper was playing with the Mexican National Team for the last date of the Concacaf qualifying round, in which Mexico faced the United States, Honduras, and El Salvador on Wednesday, where they secured their ticket to the World Cup.
The goalkeeper hopes to participate at the end of the year in his fifth World Cup with the Tricolor, while at the same time he has the mission of lifting a new league title with América.
Meanwhile, América are preparing for Saturday's match against Necaxa in Aguascalientes. The Azulcremas are working with four players who have been called up, but coach Fernando Ortiz is trying to make the most of the time with the players he has at the moment. It should be noted that Juan Otero and Pedro Aquino are doubtful for the match against the Rayos at the moment due to physical problems.
