Carlos Salcedo to join Tigres in shock move from Eintracht Frankfurt

Mexican international Carlos Salcedo will reportedly travel to Mexico to join Tigres according to ESPN and a number of various reports.

In a stunning development, one of Frankfurt’s first-choice centre-backs will return to his homeland to become the fifth Mexican player Tigres has brought back from Europe in recent years.

According to Fox Sports, one of the Bundesliga’s top defenders was not in training on Friday, as he was busy completing the deal to return to Tigres, where he spent four years in the academy without making a first-team appearance from 2008 to 2012.

After an incredible World Cup performance in Russia this summer, the 25-year-old was linked to some of the biggest clubs in the world, but he has decided to come home to be closer to his family.

In the past, Tigres has made moves for Francisco “Kikin” Fonseca, Omar Bravo, Carlos Salcido, and Javier Aquino to all return to Liga MX, with many fans blaming the club for Mexico’s failures at the international stage.
