Chivas de Guadalajara were thwarted in their attempt to acquire Nery Castillo as a reinforcement for Copa Sudamericana. But they still got him anyway... sort of.
According to reports, Castillo will train with Chivas ahead of Mexico's game against Ecuador on Nov. 12 in Phoenix. It seems that this is the first step of Castillo's return to Mexico. Could it also grease the wheels for a possible move to Chivas? Chivas, after all, have been pursuing Castillo for much longer than recent weeks. And it seems that if the club is good to him while he's not affiliated with them, perhaps he'd be most open to a move there if he decided to play in Mexico.
With Castillo wasting away at Manchester City, it would benefit Mexico greatly to have Castillo playing a key role on a club, European or otherwise, if he is to play a role in qualifying next year - provided Mexico gets there of course. And if that is not an option in England, then perhaps he'd consider going to Mexico before anywhere else. After all, I can't imagine the City bench would be preferable to playing in his home country.
