Is Pedro Caixinha returning to Mexico? Who will Chivas sign to play goalkeeper? Will VAR be implemented? Goal summarizes the transfer talk
CAIXINHA COMING TO CRUZ AZUL
Former Santos Laguna manager Pedro Caixinha is set to return to Mexico to take over Cruz Azul, according to various reports.
The Portuguese manager won the Liga MX title with Los Guerreros but most recently was in charge of Scottish side Rangers, where he was fired after less than a year. Juan Antonio Pizzi, former Leon and Chile coach, and Francisco “Paco” Palencia, who coached Pumas, are among the other candidates.
ARGENTINES OUT AT LEON
Argentine defender Diego Novaretti and his compatriot Jorge Pereyra are out of contract at Leon and won’t be returning, according to Marca Claro.
Novaretti, who made previous stops in Serie A and at Toluca, ended the season as surplus, with Pereyra also failing to win a regular spot with La Fiera.
CHIVAS HOPING FOR GUDINO RETURN
Chivas are hoping to bring Raul Gudino back to Mexico, according to Record.
The Porto goalkeeper currently is on loan with APOEL in Cyprus, but is an option for El Rebano Sagrado to replace Rodolfo Cota as the team’s No. 1 shot-stopper. Cruz Azul’s Jesus Corona is another option.
