How much does Orbelín Pineda cost?

The journalist Martín del Palacio Langer argues that, according to the laws of the market, the price of Orbelín Pineda would be much lower than what Cruz Azul intends (12 million dollars), since the condition that it is his last year of contract, it can reduce its market value by up to 50%.


According to unofficial reports, Orbelín Pineda is one of the highest paid players in Cruz Azul, as he currently receives a salary of 2 million dollars, placing him above veteran José de Jesús Corona and scorer Jonathan Rodríguez.

The Machine will have to ‘battle’ with these points in its renewal attempt, since Orbelín knows that it is wanted by heavyweights of Liga MX, and in addition to the millions of MLS, Pineda could take his letter and negotiate freely in December to fulfill the longed-for ‘European dream’.

On the other hand, there is talk that Orbelín Pineda could accept the renewal with La Machine, as long as the celestial ones improve their salary proposal, that is, raising the salary he receives, going from 2 to 3 million dollars per season, without specifying the number of years for which he would accept this new link with Cruz Azul.
