Cruz Azul striker Jonathan Rodriguez tied for the league lead in goals with 13 in the Apertura season of Liga MX, which ended last month.
The 27-year-old is one of the Mexican league’s top goal scorers; his time with La Máquina, however, may be coming to an end.
The Mexican club may be looking to offload their star player after a video emerged on Twitter of the Uruguay international attending a party and breaching COVID-19 protocols.
Mexican media outlet TUDN claims that Cruz Azul is in negotiations with Rodriguez’s Chinese club, with a $6-million bid on the table.
The article notes that the club is already starting its hunt for a substitute, scouring for a striker in Europe and South America.
