22 days after the start of the Liga MX Apertura 2020 tournament, Cruz Azul still has no reinforcements nor has it officially said goodbye to any player. It was anticipated that there would be two possible signings for the next season and Lucas Passerini already trains with Necaxa, but the Machine has not yet made any market movement official.
However, the arrival of the first signing is on the way down. José Ignacio Rivero, Uruguayan midfielder from the Xolos of Tijuana, will become the first cement reinforcement in the coming days, as Jaime Ordiales, sports director, announced a couple of days ago.
The Uruguayan has already said goodbye to his teammates at the border box and it is expected that this weekend he will set out for Mexico City, to carry out his respective medical tests, sign the contract, and be officially presented as a new Cruz player. Blue for the 2020-2021 season.
The idea of the celestial directive is to make the signing of Rivero official on Monday, the day he would report at the La Noria facilities with his new teammates, at which time he will become an option to add his first minutes in the Cup for Mexico with the light blue shirt.
The wheel would arrive at Cruz Azul for a year, on loan from Xolos, and with an affordable purchase option for the Machine, so a possible renewal is not ruled out if it is done well in the cement factory.
