Andrés Guardado is about to complete his move to MLS
The Mexico international could complete his move to the new Major League Franchise Charlotte Football Club in the next few days.
Charlotte Football Club was scheduled to debut in Major League Soccer next year, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, they will have to wait until 2022 to join the league. In the meantime, they are figuring out their roster and for their debut season, according to 'Diario Sevilla', they want Andrés Guardado to lead the project.
The 34-year-old is currently playing for Real Betis in LaLiga, but his contract ends in 2022 so negotiations have started between the player and Charlotte FC to seal the deal in the transfer window of January. The veteran midfielder would bring experience to a debutant team and he also has expressed his desire to play in MLS in the past.
Guardado joined Betis in 2017 and has made a total of 118 appearances in all competitions. This season he has taken a secondary role due to injuries and age, so a move to MLS could spark his career as he aims to lead Mexico in the next World Cup in Qatar.
Currently Guardado has tested positive for coronavirus and he would miss several matches. In the 2020/21 LaLiga season he has made seven appearances, starting in five and coming on as a substitute twice.
