In a new report by TUDN journalist Karina Herrera, Chivas are set to sign their first new player for the upcoming season, Mexican-American forward Christian Pinzon. Pinzon, 22 years of age, had been training with el rebano sagrado on a trial during this preseason, and apparently did enough to convince skipper Victor Manuel Vucetich to sign him.  

Pinzon signed his new contract with Guadalajara on Tuesday and is set to join the rest of his temmates to continue preparations for the Apertura 2021 tournament. It's believed he could first join Chivas' affiliate in the second division Tapatio FC in order to get acclimated to Mexican football, but could be recalled to the senior squad at any moment. 

Pinzon was born in the United States from Mexican parents, and he attended Cal State Fullerton before being drafted by Chicago Fire in the second round of the MLS Super Draft this year. However, he was let go and decided to come to Mexico to try out for Chivas.
