After these two actions, the response of the followers of Peru, together with that of the fans of the Machine, did not wait, since they surrendered to the quality of Yotún, who led their team to the semifinals.
I hereby make a careful call to the directive of @CruzAzul. Yoshimar Yotún’s contract also has to be renewed. Thanks in advance.

I neither confirm nor deny that Yotún is the most underrated player in Liga MX.
A midfielder who works for everything. With an elite ball kick, fit defensively and with reading and intelligence to associate. It also adds leadership.
