Striker Jesús Corona traveled to Spain to close his signing with Sevilla during this transfer window, accompanied by his family and agent, Matias Bunge.
The Instagram account of the agency of representation and branding 'Cantera Latina', which is owned by the businessman who is bringing 'Tecatito', published an image in which the soccer player is seen accompanied by his people on board a private plane.
According to information from Rodrigo Fáez, Corona will sign a three-and-a-half-year contract with Sevilla, where he hopes to recover his best footballing form after months of difficulties at Porto after playing a minor role in Sérgio Conceição's scheme.
Lopetegui has wanted the Mexican for a long time
"The prototype is Corona, he is one of my weaknesses, he is an extraordinary player, he has a lot of talent, a very high capacity to control the game and offensive situations, and an important speed. I would bring him in with open eyes," mentioned Julen Lopetegui months ago, when rumors of his signing with the Spanish club began to spread.
El Tecatito was one of the requests of Julen Lopetegui since he arrived at the Sevilla bench. His high price ruled him out in the last transfer windows but the sports management led by Monchi has been very close to the Mexican player and has decided to enter the scene now, taking advantage of the fact that his contract expires at the end of the season.
Tecatito to be presented by Sevilla this Friday
It is expected that this Friday the official presentation of 'Tecatito' will take place and he is expected to meet his new teammates, although it looks complicated that the Mexican will have his first minutes in Spain when Sevilla faces Real Betis this Saturday, in the Round of 16 of the Copa del Rey.
With Erik Lamela and Suso out due to injury, Jesús Corona is shaping up to be the starter in Lopetegui's scheme and if he does not get minutes against Betis, the Mexican could make his debut on Wednesday, January 19 against Valencia.
The 29-year-old will become the fourth Mexican to wear the Sevilla shirt, after Gerardo Torrado, Miguel Layún and Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández.
Jesús 'Tecatito' Corona will leave the ranks of FC Porto after six and a half seasons, which added to his career 164 league matches with the 'Blue Dragons' jersey, as well as two league titles (2017-18, 2019-20), one Portuguese Cup (2019-20) and two Super Cups (2018-19, 2020-21).
