All the rumors pointed that the Argentine Marcelo Gallardo, multi champion with Club River Plate, would come to Mexico to lead las Aguilas del America, however his high salary surprised the board of the Americanista Club, which according to internal information, did not reach the necessary money to cover the expectations of the manager Marcelo Gallardo, who is currently the highest paid manager in the entire continent.
Club America is one of the Mexican teams with the highest purchasing power in Liga MX, so they had the illusion of targeting Marcelo Gallardo, River Plate's Technical Director. However, the club could not sign the Argentine because the salary he receives is almost seven million dollars per year, according to information from journalist David Medrano. This amount seems impossible for the Mexican club to pay.
The manager Gallardo's salary is so high that only European teams have shown interest in him, as is the case with the French team PSG, a team that until a few months ago asked about the Argentine's services, stating that they would like him to manage PSG in a few months or years.
For now, Club América will continue to think about local options that fit its budget, after the ravages that the pandemic has left and continues leaving in the team. The Uruguayan manager Robert Dante Siboldi is considered as the principal option, after leaving Cruz Azul, but there are also other names such as Antonio Mohamed who already made Club America champion of the Liga MX and Memo Vazquez.
