Christian Tabó

The Uruguayan striker left the ranks of Puebla to become Cruz Azul’s first signing for Clausura 2022, after a possible future in which Monterrey could be his destination, but he leaned for a better offer from the ‘Machine’ and for meeting again with his former technician in the ‘Strip’ Juan Reynoso.

The new celestial attacker began his journey through Liga MX in 2015 with Atlas, a club in which he played until 2018, with a loan included to Nacional during the first half of 2016, and went to Puebla prior to the Clausura of that year.

Since his arrival at América in 2019, Benedetti has had an irregular ride in Liga MX due to injuries -or video scandals-; He only registers 16 starts in 40 games he has played and has three goals.

Diego Valdes

The Chilean striker became the first reinforcement of America to face the Clausura 2022, a tournament in which they will seek a better role than those obtained during the two previous tournaments, in which they were protagonists but were eliminated in the quarterfinals.

The South American attacker came to Mexican football in 2016 as a Morelia player, a team with which he played 90 games, 79 as a starter, and scored twelve goals. At the beginning of 2019, he joined the ranks of the Warriors and likewise became a benchmark for the team with 65 games after seven seasons and 19 defeats.

Despite his seniority, Sambueza is one of the most decisive players in Mexican football and proof of this is that Tijuana, Pumas and Puebla were interested in his services, but the Potosino club won the pulse.

Fidel Martinez

The Ecuadorian forward will wear his fifth jersey in Liga MX, after Querétaro announced him as a signing for 2022 from Tijuana, a club with which his recent employment relationship ended and which brought him to Mexico for the first time in 2013.
