After weeks of speculation, Chivas officially announced earlier today that they have come to an agreement with Grupo Pachuca for the services of striker Marco Bueno. The striker comes over to Chivas on a one-year loan with an option to buy.
The 22-year-old who has experienced success at a young age first debuted in Liga MX in Apertura 2011, after having been part of the Mexico squad that won U-17 World Cup in the same year. Since his debut with Club Pachuca in 2011, Bueno has completed various loan spells with several clubs including: Tecos, Toluca, and most recently Club Leon in the Clausura 2016,.

In his short career thus far, the young striker has played 54 games in Mexico's first division and has started in 18 of those games, while amassing 9 goals and 2 assists. Bueno is a welcomed addition to a Chivas roster that has lacked depth up top the past few seasons.
In what is shaping out to be a very active summer for Chivas, the club's front office is also looking to bring in another forward. Along with Marco Bueno, the other forward would be competing with Angel Zaldivar for the starting position. This will surely result in a positive outcome for the team as competition always brings out the best in players.
