According to a report from Brazilian website Globo Esporte, CONMEBOL has opened up negotiations to bring back Liga MX teams to the Copa Libertadores and add Major League Soccer teams. The change would take place in 2020, and sponsors are already aware that talks are in place.
Evidently, negotiations are only in their infancy, but the next questions to tackle would be about the actual format of the tournament. Would this mean more teams in the tournament or would countries lose team allocation spots?
Mexican teams last participated in the tournament in 2015. One of the reasons Mexico decided to leave the Copa Libertadores in the first place was the new schedule, along with the fact that Liga MX only received three allocation spots while other countries like Brazil and Argentina got seven and six respectively.
On the other hand, MLS teams have never participated in a Copa Libertadores before.
