Mohamed not in Mexico manager picture


Despite recently parting ways with Celta de Vigo, former Monterrey and Club America manager Antonio Mohamed is not currently a candidate for the Mexico job, according to ESPN Mexico .

The coach won Liga MX titles with America and Club Tijuana and has his fans in the FMF but the process is too far along with other candidates to bring him back into the picture.


Pereira bidding Chivas farewell?


Jair Pereira has posted a message on Instagram that many are interpreting as a farewell to Chivas.

"Colors I'll remember my whole life. Always moving forward," the center back posted Sunday along with a picture of himself. The center back reportedly is set to be out of contract and is unable to reach new terms with Chivas. The 32-year-old has been with the Guadalajara club since the 2014 Clausura.


FMF speaking with Sanchez Flores


Mexico federation president Yon de Luisa will meet with manager Quiqui Sanchez Flores this week in London about the men's national team coaching vacancy, according to  ESPN Spain .

The president may be willing to offer the Mexico job to Sanchez Flores, who coached six La Liga teams and also oversaw Watford in his coaching career.


Chivas still shopping La Chofis


Chivas are open to moving Javier "La Chofis" Lopez during the offseason in exchange for a defender, according to  Record   and ESPN Deportes.

Queretaro manager Rafa Puente Jr., however, isn't sure hope Lopez would fit in his system and is reluctant to welcome the player in a swap deal for Hiram Mier. For that reason, Chivas may work out a different deal for Mier but are talking with Monterrey on a move that would send Lopez north.


Galaxy courting Te Kloese


The LA Galaxy are interested in bringing Dennis te Kloese, Mexico Director of National Teams, to Southern California to be the Head of Soccer Operations, according to  MLSSoccer.com

The Dutch director previously oversaw Mexico's youth national teams but has been working with the senior sides since August of 2017. He also has played a key role in El Tri's search for its next manager.


Chivas have agreement to sell Pulido


There is an agreement between Chivas and Monterrey to send forward Alan Pulido to Rayados, according to  Multimedios .

The forward would be the second Chivas attacker to join Rayados in recent memory, with Rodolfo Pizarro transferred in the summer. Pulido said before the season that  he had heard of interest from Monterrey in bringing him back to La Sultana del Norte, where he used to play for Tigres.


FMF contacted Lopetegui camp


The Mexican federation reached out to people close to Julen Lopetegui to gauge the former Real Madrid and Spain manager's interest in coaching El Tri, according to long-time Mexican journalist  Fernando Schwartz .

The answer from the 52-year-old's camp, according to Schwartz, is that the manager currently is planning to take some time off to rest and will consider offers later.

The midfielder continues to play well both with Tuzos and the national team and could follow Hirving Lozano and Erick Gutierrez out the door with the president saying he'd prefer to have the player keep growing at Pachuca before moving across the pond rather than join up with a regional rival.


 

Martino would be highest-paid El Tri coach in history


The Mexican Federation is putting a deal worth more than $2 million a year on the table for Tata Martino, according to  MedioTiempo .

The deal would run for four years and would make Martino the highest-paid coach in Mexico national team history.
