Most of Mexico's offseason moves are limited to one day, draft day.
Now, the Mexican "draft" is not a draft like in MLS or other American leagues. The Mexican draft is really more like a swap meet or a rummage sale, where teams pass players off to fellow teams via loans or outright transfers.
The entire list is here, but some of the moves are significant.
- Alfredo Moreno joins America on a transfer. Moreno had 26 goals in two seasons with San Luis, including an astonishing 19 goals in the Apertura 2007 campaign. Moreno gives America another talented striker to go along with Salvador Cabanas.
- Juan Carlos Cacho moves from Pachuca to Pumas. It's a natural move for both sides. Pachuca already inked Bruno Marioni while Pumas lost both Esteban Solari (Almeria) and Ignacio Scocco (AEK Athens) in a few days.
- Pachuca dealt away several players overall, including Luis Gabriel Rey (transfer to Atlante), Marvin Cabrera (transfer to Morelia), Fernando Salazar (transfer to Morelia) and Andres Chitiva (loan to Indios).
- Oscar "Conejo" Perez went on loan to Tigres. Perez has been with Cruz Azul his entire career, and while he's nearing the end of his playing days it will still be a bit surprising to see Perez with another team.
