Herrera is reason Houston Dynamo didn’t sign Guerrero
According to multiple reports from media outlets in Peru, the Major League Soccer side prefers to sign the Mexican international over the veteran striker.
There is a very good possibility that Héctor Herrera will accept the offer from Houston Dynamo to arrive as a designated player in Major League Soccer this summer. The Mexican international’s contract with Atlético Madrid expires in June and there have been no talks about an extension.
It has been confirmed that the MLS side has presented a formal offer to Herrera, but the 31-year-old has not given them an answer. News can change any minute, because according to media outlets in Peru, the Houston Dynamo decided not to bring in Paolo Guerrero, who is without a club, because they are waiting on Herrera to make a decision.
Herrera has played some minutes in recent matches
The Mexican international said that he was frustrated with his situation with Atlético Madrid because of the lack of minutes he has played so far this season. Herrera has only played 743 minutes in 20 appearances across all competitions this year with the LaLiga side.
With that being said, Atlético’s head coach Diego Simeone has given Herrera another opportunity in the last few games. The Mexican international made his first Champions League appearance last week in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United for the first leg of the round of 16. The former Porto captain had a very solid performance and played the entire match.
He returned to the starting XI this past weekend in Atlético’s 2-0 league win against Celta de Vigo and he also played the entire 90 minutes. This is bad news for the Dynamo because if Herrera has a solid end of a season with the Madrid-based club, he could receive offers from European clubs or even receive contract extension with the ‘Colchoneros.’
