Report: Héctor Herrera has a formal offer from MLS team
The Mexican international will become a free agent in the summer and Houston Dynamo already approached him with an offer to play in MLS.
Héctor Herrera has struggled to earn the trust of manager Diego Simeone at Atlético Madrid since arriving from Porto in 2019. The Mexican international has been used as a substitute and the LaLiga side has no intention to extend his contract that will expire this summer. Herrera has made 18 appearances across all competitions and only three as a starter.
Tempted by an offer from MLS
Herrera’s future is up in the air at age 31 and he wants to keep playing at the highest level in Europe, but he hasn’t made a decision about his future. According to journalist Tom Bogert, the former Porto midfielder has received a formal offer from Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo, but he has yet to answer back.
The Texas-based team has an open spot to bring a designated player for the 2022 Major League Soccer campaign, with Sebastián Ferreira and Teenage Haded occupying the other two. If Herrera accepts the offer that is on the table, he would become the 11th Mexican to play in Major League Soccer this campaign.
Herrera made his professional debut in Liga MX with Pachuca in 2010 and spent three years there before joining FC Porto. The 31-year-old struggled in the first campaign with the Portuguese side, but since the 2015/16 season he was named the team's captain. He made 245 appearances across all competitions and won the Primeira Liga and two league cups. With Atlético Madrid he won the LaLiga trophy last year and has been a full international since 2012.
