The timeless goalkeeper, who also starred at the World Cup, is expected in the Campania capital on Thursday

The World Cup is often useful for those Sports Directors already on the hunt for budding talents to buy before the market value rises too high. But there are also those who, and this is the case of Salernitana, have taken their cue from the Qatari competition to realize that yes, perhaps, despite the 37 springs on their shoulders, someone can still be useful to the cause.

We’re talking about Guillermo Ochoa, the Mexico goalkeeper who has reached, in Qatar, his fifth World Cup participation, including three as a starter. The former of Ajaccio, Malaga, Granada and Standard Liege, among others, made a decisive intervention in his national team’s first match, when he parried a penalty for none other than Robert Lewandowski.

Accomplice to the inofrtunio of the incumbent Sepe – which indeed we could say is the real reason for Granata manager Morgan De Sanctis’ search for a goalkeeper – Ochoa could soon land in Italy. According to the latest rumors reported by ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport,’ at the latest on Thursday the North American will be in town. The Campania club’s proposal is for a contract until June 2023, with an option to renew for the following season.
