The last few days at Cruz Azul have seen too many moves to be so close to the start of the Apertura 2024. The market is entering a crucial stage and the teams that want to be contenders to win the Liga MX are looking to close negotiations that will strengthen their squad. That is why Iván Alonso has been working hard in the last few hours to consolidate the team that Martín Anselmi will have at his disposal.

The truth is that the news of Carlos Salcedo’s departure caused considerable confusion at La Máquina. After his sister died in an armed attack, the footballer asked to be transferred abroad in this transfer market. Therefore, although the club was focused on signing Luis Romo and an offensive player, now it must look for a center back for next season.

Although the cement team already has some names on file, another one was recently added to the list. According to Villa Villa, Azteca Sports reporter, Cruz Azul is very interested in signing Pollo Briseño to replace Carlos SalcedoThe 30-year-old defender has a similar profile to the Titan and has been important for Fernando Gago at Chivas.

It is clear that the option began to grow after Necaxa did not want to negotiate for Alexis Peña and asked for a lot of money for Alan Montes. On the other hand, Antonio Briseño is valued at almost 2 million dollars and the Sacred Flock could let him go if a coherent offer arrives. Although it is not an addition that excites the blue nation, considering the circumstances, it is one that would be very useful to Martín Anselmi.

Cruz Azul’s ultimate goal is to sign Luis Romo

Regardless of the urgency to sign a central defender, the club’s greatest desire is for Luis Romo to return to La Noria. Although the footballer declared that he wants to stay in Monterrey, it seems that these were words governed by political correctness. Unofficially The 29-year-old midfielder is known to be very excited to return to the team where he showed his best performance. And that is why Cruz Azul is making a great effort to make it possible.

The problem with this operation is that Rayados are asking for around 9 million dollars, while the offers that have arrived for him are quite far from that figure. Even so, at La Máquina there is great optimism with the negotiations and it is believed that this story will have a happy ending. It is worth noting that Romo could eventually play as a defender in a line of five at the back..
