Club América announced on Wednesday that they have reached an agreement with Portuguese club FC Porto for the transfer of goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin to the Primeira Liga giants.

The 31-year-old Argentine had been Las Águilas’ first choice goalkeeper since he joined América in 2016 from Santos Laguna. In his three years with América, Marchesin won the 2018 Liga MX Apertura title, 2019 Copa MX Clausura title, and 2019 Campeon de Campeones title, also earning a place in Argentina’s 23-man squad for the 2019 Copa América.

During Marchesin’s previous Liga MX spell with Santos, he also won the 2015 Liga MX Clausura title and 2015 Campeon de Campeones title.

According to various reports, FC Porto had to pay around $11 million for the transfer. Now, América are tasked with finding a replacement during the next few days, with strong rumors suggesting the club’s number one option is none other than Mexico National team goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
