Liga MX transfer news: The latest rumors and chisme in Mexican soccerSporting News — firstname.lastname@example.org (Sporting News)
Cruz Azul looking at Pineda move
Cruz Azul's strategy of reinforcing with proven Liga MX players may continue this offseason, according to Record.
That includes an agreement to sign midfielder Orbelin Pineda from Chivas after giving the Guadalajara club the $10 million fee it requires for the 22-year-old. Nexaca attacker Victor Davila also is on La Maquina's list, but that deal is not as advanced.
Martino will be announced in January
A verbal agreement exists between Tata Martino and the FMF for the Argentine to take over as men's national team coach, but he won't be announced until January, according to Fox Deportes .
Once he has signed a contract, it will be a four-year deal. However, with Mexico putting its eyes on the 2026 World Cup and Martino hoping for time to work, the deal may include an option for a four-year extension.
Grupo Pachuca bringing Everton stars to Leon
Grupo Pachuca, which controls Pachuca, Leon and Chilean side Everton, is moving several top players from South America to Leon, according to AM .
Left back Dillon Zuniga, a 22-year-old Chilean who has played with La Roja's youth teams, is set to join the club. Midfielder Ivan Orozco, a Mexican who spent the last three years in Chile, already has been announced as a new signing for Las Panzas Verdes.
America working to bring in Boselli
Club America has emerged as a potential destination for Leon forward Mauro Boselli, according to AM .
The 33-year-old said in November that he would leave the club he has been at since 2013. Reportedly, he was offered a year-long extension for a lower salary and turned down the offer with Boselli hopeful to get a MLS deal. However, a switch to play for Las Aguilas could see Boselli earn a higher wage.
Sosa set to leave Tigres
Ismael Sosa is preparing to exit from Tigres and has a number of suitors, according to Reforma .
Sosa has interest from teams in Mexico, MLS and Saudi Arabia - though Multimedios reports using the Argentine winger as currency in a swap with Pachuca currently is the strongest possibility.
Tigres after national team rising star
After Tuca Ferretti's interim stint with the Mexico national team, the manager wants to bring Pachuca's Erick Aguirre to the club, according to Univision Deportes .
The versatile 21-year-old could arrive as soon as this winter, with Tigres likely to use him as a central midfielder instead of the left-wing spot he's played with Tuzos.
Atleti one of Guzman's suitors
Atletico Madrid has taken an interest in Pachuca and Mexico midfielder Victor Guzman, according to Mundo Deportivo .
Pachuca president Jesus Martinez said last month that there is interest from a number of European teams, and in addition to the Spanish club, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and PSV look to be on that list.
Chicharito on Besiktas' list
Besiktas sent a board member to London and have Mexico forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez on its shortlist of winter targets, according to ESPNFC .
The club is yet to make a formal offer to West Ham United but could do so if the 30-year-old is open to the idea of playing in Turkey. His high wages, however, may be a barrier the Istanbul side is unable to overcome.
Herrera could land at Juve
Juventus is considering a move for Porto midfielder Hector Herrera, according to A Bola .
The midfielder's contract is up at the end of the season, and he's also been linked to Inter and Roma as he looks for a deal that would earn him up to €300,000 per month.
