Club América has had a difficult start in the Grita México 2021 tournament. The team led by Santiago Solari has had a good performance in football and is in the first position of the general table. However, the Eagles have struggled to have a full roster. Santiago Naveda and Leonardo Suárez suffered injuries that will prevent them from playing this season. After the loss of the Argentine attacker, the Coapa team decided to register Renato Ibarra, despite numerous criticisms from the press.
The Ecuadorian soccer player returned to play a game with the azulcremas after a year and a half and reappeared in the duel against Xolos de Tijuana on matchday 6. The 30-year-old soccer player, separated from the Americanist discipline after being involved in an act of family violence , played just over 20 minutes and scored a goal on his return. However, Renato Ibarra presented a muscle injury in his left leg, he will have to undergo an operation and will miss the rest of the season.
In this context, the Azulcrema directive has taken on the task of looking for a substitute for the Ecuadorian. Among the options that are considered within the club, according to the América Monumental portal, is Jurgen Damm, current Atlanta United footballer of the MLS. The Mexican winger had already been contacted by the Eagles in this same market, but the option did not materialize.
According to this report, the Americanist directive would consider a footballer consolidated in South American football whose record does not exceed six million dollars or, failing that, would add a young element with future projection in condition of a loan with an option to buy, such as he did with Álvaro Fidalgo or Federico Viñas.
According to the FIFA legal portal, the transfer system in Liga MX opened on July 1 and will close on September 2. The Eagles have until this date to close the replacement for Suárez and Ibarra.
