Goal.com reported today that Andres Guardado might not be joining Atlanta United this summer after all. Guardado returned to training with PSV today after a break following the Copa American Centenario.
Andrés Guardado is terug: 'De vakantie was prima en ik voel me fit voor komend seizoen.' Later meer bij PSV TV. pic.twitter.com/sYPGWeMrLn— PSV (@PSV) July 12, 2016
Andres Guardado is back: "The holiday was fine and I feel fit for next season." More later at PSV TV.
ESPN’s John Sutcliffe has reported throughout the summer that Atlanta United has been chasing Guardado as a Designated Player signing. Goal reported that Atlas, his original Mexican club, was to be his loan destination for the LigaMX Apertura.
With the deal not being done at this point and the LigaMX Apertura kicking off on Saturday, Guardado returned to PSV and Goal reports that he will play one more season there. It is not ruled out that Guardado might return to Atlas in the future.
As with all rumors and reports, it’s important to take them with a grain of salt. The lack of a deal getting done by now does not rule out the chance of Guardado signing with Atlanta United this summer. The MLS transfer window is open until August 3.
