Cruz Azul seeks to continue strengthening itself after the departure of fundamental pieces of the team such as Jonathan Rodríguez, Orbelín Pineda, Roberto Alvarado or Yoshimar Yotún. In this context, the Celeste Machine searched for Cristian Pavón, current Boca Juniors player, but everything indicates that the Argentine winger will not arrive at La Noria, at least this semester. According to the most recent reports, the cement directive was unable to reach an agreement with the xeneizes.
The negotiations would have broken down due to the claims of Boca Juniors for a player who has six months left on his contract with the institution. The Argentine team sought to obtain an economic benefit of more than three million dollars for a soccer player who will be a free agent next semester. In addition, the Boca board wanted to keep 80% of Cristian Pavón’s letter for future sales.
Cruz Azul, obviously, would not have accepted these disadvantageous conditions and would have given up on their intentions to sign Pavón for the Liga MX Clausura 2022 tournament. The priority objective for the Mexican team would be Robert Morales, a 22-year-old Paraguayan winger who currently plays for Cerro Porteño. The Celeste Machine could acquire 50% of the player’s card for a figure close to 2 million dollars.
Once he is released, Cristian Pavón’s intention would be to emigrate from Argentine soccer and he would not look badly on arriving at Liga MX. This would open the doors for Cruz Azul to join the Boca winger for the 2022 Opening.
