Chivas Guadalajara looking to re-acquire Miguel Sabah

A day after sending attacker Omar Arellano to Monterrey and bringing in defender Sergio Perez, Chivas is in active transfer talks again, seeking to re-acquire forward Miguel Sabah.

Chivas is reportedly in discussions with Morelia to bring in the 33-year-old forward, whose contract with the Michoacán side has run out. Due to the Gentlemen’s Agreement, Morelia must nevertheless cede Sabah to any future Mexican employer.

Sabah debuted in the Mexican top flight for Chivas during the Invierno 2000 tournament, and has since gone on to play for Cruz Azul and Morelia, starring in Mexico for over a decade.

The striker has been capped 17 times by El Tri, scoring five international goals, including the winner in a 2-1 victory over the U.S. at Estadio El Azteca in World Cup Qualifying in 2009.

Sabah has indicated he would like to return to Guadalajara to close out his career, and was reportedly in negotiations with Atlas earlier this month. Chivas is in need of a patch in attack - the Guadalajara side will be without forward Rafael Marquez Lugo for the beginning of the Clausura 2013.
