Report: Major League Soccer next up for Chivas Guadalajara's Oswaldo Alanis

UPDATE (Jan. 27): MedioTiempo reports Oswaldo Alanis is on the verge of reuniting with former Chivas coach Matias Almeyda at the San Jose Earthquakes, claiming an announcement is expected soon. Univision reported later on Monday afternoon that the player was undergoing his medical with the California side.


After a slew of attacking players have made the move from Liga MX to Major League Soccer, could a defender be next up?

Chivas Guadalajara center back Oswaldo Alanis is reportedly mulling an offer from an unnamed MLS squad as well as weighing the possibility of joining Monterrey, though reporter Fernando Cevallos claims to move to Rayados would require a pay cut.

The 30-year-old, who has been capped 23 times with Mexico since debuting in 2014, is a left-footed center back in his second stint with Chivas after being part of the club that captured the 2018 Concacaf Champions League title.

Alanis joined Spanish side Getafe following the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but was released a month later without appearing in an official match.

He subsequently signed a two-year deal with Real Oviedo in August 2018, but he terminated that contract the following June after 24 appearances.

Alanis made his return to Guadalajara June 12, 2019 on a free transfer. He started 10 matches and scored a pair of goals in the Liga MX Apertura campaign, but he’s not made an appearance in the club’s three Clausura contests.
