It’s the mid-season break in Mexico, and with the spring-to-fall leagues like MLS in the off-season, we’ll see some movement in the coming weeks. We’ve already seen a few transactions, but there have been a few more in recent days.
OT hero César “The Joker” Romero, who tore up Armenia before moving to FY Macedonia, has joined Deportivo Tepic. Romero was linked to Guadalajara, which was interesting as he had an unsuccessful run with their former MLS affiliate a few years ago, before settling with the club frequently known as Coras de Tepic. Tepic serves as an affiliate to Chivas. They finished 11th in Ascenso MX, missing the Apetura playoffs.
Meanwhile, it sounds like another Luis from Real Salt Lake may be heading to Mexico. Luis Gil, who never really put things together with RSL, may be joining Luis Silva south of the border (assuming that move still happens).
I've heard a Liga Mx club is stepping up their interest for Luis Gil. The US U-23 mid is traveling to Mexico for negotiations this week
