Alarm bells are ringing for Zorros fans! And it seems that the Chicago Fire wants to take a player from Atlas, so everyone is wondering, who is Ían Jairo Torres, the player who could come to MLS?
More news about Atlas:
According to sources close to the red and black club, the Men in Red are about to get the 21-year-old Mexican winger who in the Apertura 2021 was part of the team that broke Atlas' curse.
The Zorros had gone more than 70 years without a Liga MX championship, and Torres was part of the team that ended that curse, so now that his name is sounding strong for MLS, everyone wants to know more about the player.
Who is Ían Jairo Torres?
Ían Jairo Torres Ramírez is a Mexican soccer player who so far, plays as a winger and his current team is Atlas Fútbol Club of Liga MX, champion of the tournament and that in the current Clausura 2022 is going at a good pace looking to repeat the title.
Torres is a player who began his career as a professional footballer at Atlas, as part of his growing up at home, and whose career with the Zorros began in 2012 when he started playing for the U-13 category of the Jalisco club.
The player grew with the club and over the years he moved up through the ranks, playing with the Under 15, Under 17, and Under 20 teams of the red and black teams.
Where and when was Ían Jairo Torres born?
Ían Jairo Torres was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco on July 5, 2000, so he has spent his whole life in that state of Mexico, so if his transfer to Chicago Fire takes place, it would be the first time he lives not only outside his state, but also outside his country.
But this transfer would be the next logical step in the career of a young player who, since he started with Atlas, has been improving his performance and has managed to move up through the team's ranks.
As a result, he made his official debut in Zorro's first team on November 19, 2016, in a match corresponding to the 17th matchday of the Apertura 2016.
In that match, Torres came on as a substitute in the 45th minute for Rodolfo Salinas, however, in that match he could not do much for his team, which lost by the minimum difference against Jaguares de Chiapas.
His moment of consecration with the Zorros would come on April 5, 2019, when he scored his first goal in a league match against Veracruz, doing so in the 88th minute and helping his team win the match by one goal to zero.
