Luis Gil signs with Querétaro
   December 23, 2015 (8:36 PM) by Howie Michaels     Email This Post Email This Post

It’s been a busy off-season for Americans moving to Liga MX. Already this month we saw Jorge Villafaña and Omar Gonzalez make moves to Santos Laguna and Pachuca, respectively; now, Luis Gil, out of contract with Real Salt Lake, has signed a deal with Querétaro.

The contract is for three years, although I wonder if that’s rounded since it would be expiring in the 2018-19 apertura/clasura break. He’ll join a Gallos Blancos squad that finished 11th this fall; they did reach the Liga MX final last spring. He’ll also got to fulfil every American’s dream of hanging out with Jonathan Bornstein in his downtime.

Gil is just 22 years old, which seems crazy because I swear he’s been around forever. After seemingly breaking out with a 5-goal, 3-assist season at 19 in 2013, he seemed to plateau. I’m inclined to think a change of scenery will be good for him, and his style (skinny and technical) might be a better fit south of the border.

Howie once received a death threat at a USA-Brazil friendly. He still believes in Fred Adu. He plays forward in coed rec, although not well.

    I hope Gil gets his groove back down in Mexico and finds his way back into the Nats picture.

    Robert, I thought he had to file his one-time switch first – are you saying he’s already done so? I’m very high on Jesse, thought for sure he was opting for Mexico. He plays beyond his age, very talented young man.

    MX League is solid level of play. Starting is never easy for young MLS transfers.

    I’m starting the Jordan Morris transfer rumor to Bob Fighting Le Havre! Why not?

    looks like jesse gonzalez has accepted a call-up to the january camp but he will not file his one-time switch and so he will not play in the friendlies
