The Cruz Azul board of directors continues to negotiate with Jesús Corona and Julio César Dominguez to renew their contracts.
Coach Riccardo Ferretti wants him for the Apertura 2023 because he likes people with experience. This is the reason why both the players have already been offered to extend their employment relationship but they have not agreed to the terms that were offered to them, which is why they have not been able to reach an agreement.
The 42-year-old goalkeeper was told that he could continue to defend the sky-blue arc for six more months, but he wanted to renew for one year, and then consider retiring.
The 35-year-old defender was offered a one-year renewal, which was all he wanted; However, the salary would have to be reduced significantly.
The two players who reported to the La Noria facilities have already undergone medical examinations and are training normally. They will also travel to Ixtapa Zihuatanejo to continue their pre-season work on the beach.
However, he hasn’t made a decision yet, so his representatives are considering offers from other teams.
‘Kata’ is the most capped player in Cruz Azul’s history, as he made his debut in 2006 and has not played for any other club. While ‘Chuy’ arrived at La Maquina in 2009 after wearing Atlas and Tecos UAG shirts.
Jesus Corona has been linked with Queretaro, who will look for a new goalkeeper after the departure of Gil Alcala, who returned to Pumas at Antonio Mohamed’s request.
If he leaves the club, he will give substitute goalkeepers Andres Gudino and Sebastián Jurado a chance.
