The ghost signings of the Clausura 2020

Rumors and failed signings that surely would have brought a different focus to the clubs for closing those transactions. Teams like Monterrey, América, Cruz Azul and Chivas explored the possibility of repatriating high-level Mexicans abroad and / or with some talent from Liga MX. However, due to financial reasons, everything remained in a dream and these reinforcements did not arrive.

America – Jonathan dos Santos

Las Águilas with one of the Two Saints in their ranks, tried to unite the brothers and fulfill a dream that they themselves have made known.However, Jonathan closed the doors for an upcoming signing with the Coapa team, since in the words of the Mexican World Cup himself, “he would end his career at the LA Galaxy.”

Despite the fact that Jonathan dos Santos wore the colors of America in the final of the Apertura 2019 and has repeated on several occasions his desire to play for the capital team with his brother, his plans could have a direction different.

Cruz Azul – Aké Loba

The Ivorian attacker, now ex from Querétaro, has been an element that Cruz Azul has tempted since tournaments; However, with the possibility closer than ever, negotiations would have reached their limit after the agent raised his cost at the last minute.Reports indicated that the Machine put eight million dollars on the table, which would have been rejected by Aké Loba.

Chivas – Marco Fabián

His step Fabián’s revenue increased through MLS and this became a double-edged sword, both for the player and for Club Deportivo Guadalajara. Rumors pointed out that the rojiblanco youth squad requested a salary of 54 million pesos a year; that is, 5.3 million a month to return to play with Chivas. This was a request that the board now headed by Ricardo Peláez, would not have taken well.

Monterrey – Héctor Moreno

One of the main objectives of the Rayados has been the experienced Mexican, Héctor Moreno.Unfortunately for the Monterrey cause, Al-Gharafa, who recently acquired the defender, would only let the World Cup player go if Monterrey pays the termination clause, which would exceed 10 million dollars. Plus, they would have to match or exceed Moreno’s high salary.
