The transfer market in Mexico is in full swing, and the Football Club Monterey has made the decision to break the market by looking to hire an internationally renowned star: Alexis Sanchez. This surprising news has left many fans with their mouths open, since the Chilean striker is recognized for his successful career in Europe.
The Rayados de Monterrey board of directors has decided to put an end to Rogelio Funes Mori’s time at the club, considering that he no longer has the same value within the Monterrey project. Fernando Ortíz, the team’s coach, was informed of this decision and accepted the sale of Funes Mori under the condition of receiving a replacement of equal or higher quality than the “twin”.
BOMB: Monterrey wants to break the market with the signing of Alexis Sánchez
According to reports, the Rayados de Monterrey have already closed an agreement with the Pumas de la UNAM for the transfer of Funes Mori, and once this operation is finalized, the Monterrey club will move quickly to sign the striker to take his place. Among the options is the name of Alexis Sánchez, who has been linked to the club for weeks.
Monterrey’s interest in Alexis Sánchez is based on the belief that the Chilean could be the star the project needs to achieve its goals. In addition, being a free agent, the Monterrey club has the opportunity to tempt the striker with a very attractive financial offer. It is rumored that Monterrey would be willing to offer him a salary higher than the 4 million dollars that André-Pierre Gignac currently receives in the Tigers.
Although Alexis Sánchez has expressed his desire to continue in Europe, Club de Fútbol Monterrey is not giving up and will do everything possible to convince the player to join their ranks this summer. The income generated from the sale of Funes Mori and the savings in his salary allow the club to be more economically competitive and offer the Chilean a tempting proposition.
The signing of Alexis Sánchez by the Rayados de Monterrey would be a real coup in Mexican soccer and a sample of the economic power and ambition of the Monterrey club. It will be necessary to be attentive to how the negotiations develop and if the Chilean finally decides to make the leap to Liga MX to become the new star of the team.
