Chivas bringing in Mier

With Jair Pereira set to leave in the offseason, the club needs defensive reinforcements. Monterrey defender Cesar Montes also is set to be a target this winter for the club, which signs only Mexican players.

Martino in line for four-year deal

Tata Martino will be announced as Mexico national team manager once Atlanta United is eliminated from the playoffs, according to  Univision Deportes .

Martino is set to put pen to paper on a deal that would keep him in the position through the 2022 World Cup and earn him $8.8 million.

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.

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.

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.

Guzman has European interest
