Carlos Salcedo could be on his way to Chivas — CD Guadalajara, not the USA kind that no longer exists — Mexican news outlet Milenio reported tonight.
Salcedo, 21, is reportedly the subject of a transfer bid, and although it remains to be seen if Real Salt Lake has received or accepted the bid. The club was unable to confirm the reports at publication.
In November, Salcedo issued a statement indicating that he wanted out of Real Salt Lake after problems of some sort with general manager Garth Lagerwey, who has since been confirmed to be leaving the club.
If Salcedo does indeed depart, Chivas would see him remain in good sorts with the Mexican national team youth setups, which he has been involved with frequently in the last year. He impressed with their U-23 setup in the Central American and Caribbean Games.
Salcedo was perhaps disappointed with few minutes in 2014, playing 800 minutes — three full matches fewer than his 2013 campaign. There was never confirmation that playing time was his at the center of his dispute with Garth Lagerwey, however, with the player and the club staying silent on the matter.
More will certainly be developing soon in this ordeal, and it does shed light on why Real Salt Lake protected him in the 2014 MLS Expansion Draft.
