The return of Hector Moreno to Liga MX after his departure to Europe from the Pumas of the UNAM, added a new returnee to the list of Rayados from Monterrey in Mexican Soccer, a team that together with the UANL Tigers, have been in charge of leading this type of operations in recent years, since since 2016, the sultana’s clubs have managed to sign players with a ‘European export label’.
However, Rayados and Tigres have left behind the economic power of Club América, Chivas Rayadas from Guadalajara and Cruz Azul, clubs that have also managed to catch Mexican figures who abandoned their European dream to return to Mexican Soccer, although in recent years they have come in smaller numbers.
