Former Mexico international Omar Bavo is headed to NASL club Carolina RailHawks, several media sources report. After helping Chivas win the SuperCopa MX on Sunday and scoring the goal that sealed the Rebaño a place in the Copa Libertadores, Bravo looks headed to a move away from the club.
Bravo, 36, is Chivas' all-time leading goal scorer and an icon at the club. But time has taken a toll on Bravo, who has seen his playing time slashed with younger players attempting to take his starting spot.
Fox Sports contributor Fernando Fiore was the first to break the news, with several other outlets later reporting the same thing.

President and general manager of the Carolina RailHawks, Curt Johnson, also hinted about his side's new acquisition, confirming the club's signing will be presented on Tuesday in a friendly against West Ham.
Bravo's move to Carolina would mark his second stint in the United States after playing one year at MLS-side Sporting KC. The RailHawks currently sit seventh in the NASL standings.
