Belief player can use World Cup to ‘catapult’ to Europe – Manchester United ‘had set their sights on him’

Mexican forward Piojo Alvarado is hoping the World Cup can ‘catapult him into Europe’, after Manchester United previously ‘had set their sights on him’.

That’s according to Heraldo, who cover the player today and how he may be the ace up Mexico manager Tata Martino’s sleeve in Qatar.

They explain that the Chivas payer has become a ‘secret weapon’ for the Tricolor under Martino’s guidance, with his versatility a major plus point and something that could help him secure a move to Europe.

He’s been close to England in the past, enjoying trials with Leicester City and Manchester City, while Manchester United ‘had set their sights on him’ at one point in time.

A move never happened and he remained in Mexico, going on to win the Liga MX title with Cruz Azul, an Olympic bronze medal and the opportunity to be a part of Mexico’s squad for this World Cup.

He could use the tournament in Qatar to further aid his cause and ‘emigrate to Europe’, with some sources even believing he is the ‘most influential player’ in Martino’s squad.

The youngster has already racked up 300 appearances in the Mexican first division by age 23 and won several titles at club and international level and the only thing missing is that ‘leap to Europe’.

The World Cup can help fix that, with the player being someone who knows ‘how to take advantage of opportunities’ such as this one.

He is set to play a key role for Mexico regardless, and should he shine as many are expecting him to do, perhaps Manchester United will be back in the picture.
