Mexican World Cup star Javier Aquino could be set to quit Spanish side Rayo Vallecano and return to his homeland, according to reports in Mexican newspaper Record.
A couple of weeks ago it looked like he might be on the verge of moving to back to parent club Villarreal, but it now appears a move to Tigres UANL or Chivas de Guadalajara – both giants of the Mexican domestic game – is more likely.
The 25 year old has played in Spain since 2013, making 44 appearances for Villarreal and 24 appearances for Rayo Vallecano.
Prior to his European switch he played for another Mexican giant – the Mexico City-based Cruz Azul. He made his debut in 2010 and went on to score 7 goals in 78 games for the club.
He was a late replacement for Luis Montes in last summer’s World Cup squad, as Montes broke his leg in a pre-tournament friendly.
