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

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 .

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.

Guzman has European interest

Victor Guzman has been the subject of interest both from clubs based in Europe and from other Mexican teams, Pachuca president Jesus Martinez said .

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.
