The participation of Cruz Azul in the Grita México 2021 of Liga MX has not ended yet and the celestial team is already thinking about reinforcements for next season. Juan Máximo Reynoso’s team did not perform well in the regular season and would be interested in adding some elements for the Clausura 2022. Given the possible departure of Pablo Aguilar, one of the priorities of the Sky Machine is to sign a central defender.
The Spanish Unai Bilbao is the first option on the list of the cement table. The 27-year-old central defender, who currently plays for San Luis, is of interest to the Cruz Azul board of directors to round out the squad for the following year. The Spanish defender has had outstanding performances with Atlético de San Luis and Lo Rayos so his hiring sounds like good news for the celestial ones.
According to the most recent reports, the capital’s team is very interested in taking over the services of the Spanish defender and he would also be interested in joining La Noria’s team. The journalist Adrián Esparza, from the TUDN chain, indicated that “sooner or later we will see Unai Bilbao in Cruz Azul.” The defender has a letter valued at 3.5 million euros.
During Grita México 2021, Unai Bilbao played 15 games, scored a goal and gave an assist. The defender from Bilbao has grown enormously in Liga MX. He came to Mexican soccer in 2018 from Bilbao Athletic. Without a doubt, this defense can be a great recruitment to reinforce the weak low box of the Celestial Machine.
