Chivas Guadalajara Transfer News: Marco Fabian's $8 Million Option Not Being Exercised By Cruz Azul, Achille Emana 'Good Signing'?
On Tuesday, Chivas Guadalajara announced the return of Carlos Salcido. The 34-year-old defender began his professional career with the club in 2001 before making the rounds in Europe. After stints with PSV, Fulham and Tigres, Salcido is ready to once again don the red and white of Guadalajara.

That is, of course, after he finishes representing Mexico in the 2014 World Cup.
Chivas Guadalajara can now claim one of the 23 Mexican internationals in Brazil, but the possibility still remains they can claim another.
Still on loan to Cruz Azul, Marco Fabian has shown no signs of desiring a return to Guadalajara. Cruz Azul sporting director Agustin Manzo, however, is yet to show any signs of exercising his $8 million option, permanently retaining his services (per Azteca Deportes). The former Guadalajara star's future remains very much a question mark.
The same can be said for Achille Emana.
The former Cameroon international failed to make Volker Finke's provisional roster last Monday. To make matters worse, the 31-year-old was transfer listed by Cruz Azul, making him a viable option for any club looking to bolster its attack in the 2014 Apertura.
"The only foreign player that's leaving [Cruz Azul] is Achille Emana," Manzo said.
Cruz Azul's Achille Emana put up for sale by the club. Good signing for someone.

While explaining the rest of his transfer list, he added: "They're Acenso players that were no longer in the plans because the club [Cruz Azul Hidalgo] no longer exists. We have no plans of letting go another player from the first team."
That limits Guadalajara's options, but for a club desperate for attacking prowess, Emana remains an option. Owner Jorge Vergara, however, like he did with Chivas USA, would have to change his failing all-Mexican policy first.
