In fact, they haven’t bought Salcedo for more than $ 10 million, although those rumors haven’t completely disappeared yet. For the record: I don’t believe these rumors at all, and even if they were true, I would advise Houston to spend its money elsewhere. Salcedo is very good, but he is not good at 8 digits. If he was, Tigers wouldn’t sell him. Dividing this expenditure into three reasonably high level DPs would be a more strategic use of funds, anyway.
Houston’s only real moves since that last update are loaning local playmaker Marcelo Palomino to USL’s Charlotte Independence and then re-signing Honduran legends Maynor Figueroa (CB) and Boniek Garcia (CM). That’s all.
I will reiterate my opinion that they have had a good offseason and a much better structure to build from than in recent years. But this lack of match winners can be deadly.
