Charles Boehm wrote today on MLSSoccer.com that Andres Guardado confirmed that Atlanta United has made inquires about his services. Guardado spoke to the media after his Mexican national team defeated the U.S. last night in Columbus, Ohio.
Guardado was forced to leave Friday’s game early with an apparent hamstring injury. The injury will likely rule him out of Mexico’s trip to Panama on Tuesday, and possibly Eredivisie action with his club PSV Eindhoven in the coming weeks.
According to Boehm’s report, Guardado said that Atlanta United has not made a formal offer to him or PSV. The Mexican national team midfielder has been linked to Atlanta for months, with some reports stating substantial offers have been discussed.
In Spanish, Guardado reiterated his thoughts on MLS:
“I’ve always said, ever since the rumors started about Atlanta and all of that, that MLS is a league that’s growing, that obviously I can’t close the door on any particular league. Right now obviously I’m at PSV, and honestly it’s like a second home to me, they’ve treated me so well since I arrived.
In the life of a footballer, though, you never know what the future holds.”
He told Boehm that he has not had any “concrete conversations” with Atlanta United yet.
