Everything seems to indicate that Orbelín Pineda has coldly calculated leaving Cruz Azul as a free agent once his contract ends at the end of December 2021, the rumors have been several and the version most touched recently by the Mexican press, such as ESPN Sports is that, once separated from the celestial club, he will join the ranks of Celta de Vigo from Spain.
The outstanding Mexican attacking midfielder has signed an extraordinary participation in the 2021 Gold Cup and possibly its value will increase over the next few weeks, the only problem is that the Machine will not obtain an economic remuneration but it is transferred in the current window of signings.
On the other hand, in the same way, there are no apparent intentions to renew the player since the institution has repeatedly offered him offers to renew his contract, but the firm intention of the youth squad from Querétaro to fulfill his dream of playing soccer European remains in force.
Even according to information from the journalist of W Radio, Carlos Cordova, the pre-agreement between ‘The Maguito‘and the Spanish team would be close to materializing, as the high claims of the cement team make it impossible for the sale to be profitable for any other team.
This story would not stay and according to information from the journalist in his newspaper column RECORD, Ruben Rodriguez, the cement team would have a “revenge” in case of not renewing and going free in January.
And it is that, the directive would give orders so that the footballer had limitations during the course of the Apertura 2021 and could see his activity reduced in the first team during his last semester of contract.
“Orbelín could eat a whole tournament derived from future decisions and having as a precedent many cases of players in Mexican soccer who have chosen to go out this way, since the costs of the local market do not match what they are valued in Europe and prefer to go through the back door or fought, but finally in the old continent “
