Report: LA Galaxy could sign Boca Juniors’ Cristian Pavon for fees over $ 10million
TRANSFER TRACKING STATUS:Report
As Cristian Pavon’s loan with the LA Galaxy expires at the end of the current season, the MLS club could possibly land the Boca Juniors winger for more than $ 10 million, according to a new report from TyC Sports.
The Galaxy could guarantee his move if he paid the $ 20 million redemption fee attached to its loan deal, a sum that has always been viewed as unrealistic.
It’s unclear whether spending around half that number would be more feasible for the Galaxy, but it would apparently be enough for Boca to consider switching from the 24-year-old and using the incoming fees to look for a replacement.
Pavon has been scorching in 2020, registering six goals and four assists in nine league appearances for the Galaxy, who have won four in a row after a rocky start to the season. While Mexico’s all-time top scorer Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has missed Los Angeles’ last six games with a calf injury, Pavon has consistently been able to earn 13 out of 18 points in this season. sequence.
Pavon’s form is reminiscent of the one he displayed during the 2017-18 Argentina Superliga, when he scored six goals and 11 assists to help Boca finish atop the table. Current Galaxy coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto was in charge of Boca at the time.
This run helped him win four appearances for the Argentina national team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where The Albiceleste were eliminated in the round of 16.
