Cruz Azul desisted from the hiring of Cristian Pavón, by not fixing the player’s contract and the amount of the transfer with Boca Juniors, and now the forward’s destination could be Atlético Mineiro from Brazil.
According to the Mexican site 90 minutes, Cruz Azul’s interest in the striker took a turn due to the claims of the player and the club, and according to the specialized site Vamos Azul, the target is now the striker from Vélez Lucas Janson, who would arrive to replace the Uruguayan Jonathan Rodríguez, who will continue his career at Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, Atlético Mineiro emerges as another possible destination for the Cordovan striker who has a contract with Boca until June 30 and would keep the pass in his possession. The arrival of Antonio Mohamed as coach would facilitate the incorporation, as happened with the arrival of Uruguayan defender Diego Godín.
Meanwhile, there were no news regarding the long-awaited arrival of Darío Benedetto from Elche from Spain and neither in that of Nicolás Figal from Inter Miami of the Major Soccer League. In both cases, it is expected that what was agreed upon verbally will be put on paper for its officialization.
The xeneize squad continues training at the Ezeiza property and this morning saw the return of Sebastián Villa and Mateo Retegui, who were isolated after testing positive for Covid-19 in the tests that were carried out last Thursday 6.

The auriazul reserve is also doing the preseason at the Ezeiza property and the novelty is that the left back Ayrton Sánchez terminated his contract and sealed his bond with Brown de Adrogué of the First National.
Sánchez’s departure is added to the loans of Agustín Heredia to Plaza Colonia from Uruguay, Israel Escalante to Alajuelense from Costa Rica and Juan Baiardino to Defensores de Belgrano.
