Cruz Azul has trebled Chivas' spending, and results suggest it's paying off

Orbelin Pineda dribbles the ball during Cruz Azul's Liga MX match against Puebla.
Orbelin Pineda was Cruz Azul's biggest signing ahead of the Clausura.

To overhaul the squad last season and come out on top over rivals Chivas, Cruz Azul made the decision to invest three times the amount of money, resulting in the Mexico City squad gaining the upper hand on its Pacific coast rivals in Liga MX.

Specifically, Cruz Azul has invested just over $45 million in the past two half-year tournaments. Some 14 players in total have arrived; 11 via acquisitions and three on loans. This change in transfer policy is in large part due to the arrival of Ricardo...

The 28-year-old former Independiente player was key in helping Cruz Azul reach the 2018 Apertura final last season and win the Copa MX. The transfer fee is close to $8 million, according to the source.

Marcone will be pushing for a place in Lionel Scaloni's Argentina squad at next summer's Copa America in Brazil, and his absence in Pedro Caxinha's...

Cruz Azul, Monterrey the big winners; Tigres stand pat in Mexico's new-look winter transfer window

Uruguay international Jonathan Rodriguez should be a huge addition for a Cruz Azul side that came up just short last campaign.
Uruguay international Jonathan Rodriguez should be a huge addition for a Cruz Azul side that came up just short last campaign.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- It's been a very different kind of transfer window in Liga MX this winter. The old "draft" -- a meet-up of club owners to thrash out deals and register players -- didn't take place and was replaced by a more conventional transfer period.

The domestic transfer window closed on Dec. 28, after being open for 12 days following the Apertura final, although the opportunity to sign players from outside of Mexico will be open until Jan. 31.

It's been a busy window so far, with the...
