As we jump from one major tournament to the next, there have also been transfers taking place when it comes to members of El Tri. If your mind has not yet exploded from the overwhelming amount of soccer coverage you have had to digest over the last couple of weeks, allow us to break down which players are now abroad:
Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano:
The Mexican striker and former Pachuca player recently announced the move to PSV, joining a long string of Mexican players who have been welcomed by the Dutch club including former PSV member Hector Moreno and possible former player Andres Guardado. For all the detailed information, check out fellow FutMexNation writer Tom Harrison’s piece discussing it:

Brisenos, 23-year-old Mexican defender for Tigres, announced this past weekend he would be transferring to the Portuguese club, CD Feirense next season for the Primera Division. Much like the Netherlands, Portugal has been a great host to many Mexican players and Brisenos will be joining fellow Mexicans Miguel Layun, Hector Herrera, Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona and Raul Jimenez in the same league.

Porto’s warm welcome to Mexico players continues as Santos Laguna U-20 player Joao Maleck has been transferred to the club’s B team on loan with an option to buy. The 18-year-old striker leaves the Mexican league before ever debuting in the first division. However, moving to Europe at such a young age can only bring benefits for Maleck. He is the fourth player to leave Mexico to transfer to Europe this summer.
