Former Mexican scoring champion Sebastian Abreu will boost Cruz Azul's fortunes soon, according to local sources.
Cruz Azul may be one of the most depleted clubs in Verano 2002. Because of their high number of Mexican internationals, Cruz Azul will likely have to do without several starters for many Verano matches.
Abreu, who is a member of Nacional of Uruguay, would join the Mexicans for at least one season as reported by Tenfield Digital.
Abreu played with UAG Tecos for several seasons. In Verano 2000, "El Loco"
Abreu scored a league-high 13 goals.
Abreu would be a welcome addition to Cruz Azul. The club has five players who are regulars on the Mexican national team, including forward Miguel Zepeda, who led the club with eight goals last season, and Cesareo Victorino, a mainstay in the midfield.
Abreu would pair with rising star Emilio Mora up front. Mora had a career-high seven goals last season as Cruz Azul advanced to the semifinals of Invierno 2001.
Cruz Azul are reportedly willing to pay up to $800,000 for Abreu's services.
