Sebastián Cáceres was a pleasant surprise at the back for América. Under the orders of Miguel Herrera and Santiago Solari, the Uruguayan played 2707 minutes in 31 matches, starting 30 of them. He did not score goals, but he was in charge of guarding the goal defended by Guillermo Ochoa in the best possible way.


The projection of Sebastián Cáceres is enormous at just 21 years of age, the defender is a fixture in the youth teams of the Uruguayan national team. This is well known by the scouts of European teams, such as Leicester City, who showed interest in his profile.  Although a formal offer from the Premier League club has not yet arrived, Coapa already has a glimpse of what the operation could mean.


According to Transfermarkt, the South American is valued at six million euros. However, several reports from England claim that the proposal could reach 20 million euros. For the time being, Las Águilas board of directors is reluctant to sell him in this summer transfer market, as they are confident that his level will increase his value. In addition, he plays a fundamental role in Solari's scheme and a few days before the start of the Apertura 2021 it would not be easy to find a replacement.



The English team has not contacted the directors of the Mexican club to ask or make an offer for Cáceres, who is currently concentrating with the club ahead of the Apertura 2021. The defender landed in the Coapa nest in the Clausura 2020 and in such a short time he has managed to become a starter with the American team.


Thus, Sebastián Cáceres could be living his last matches with América, who would give the go-ahead for his possible departure at the end of the Guard1anes 2021 Tournament. In the meantime, the América team is already preparing for its last match of the regular phase of the competition, when on Sunday they take the field at the Olímpico Universitario to measure their strength against Pumas.
