Edson Álvarez: 15 million euros from America to Ajax.
Diego Lainez: 15 million euros from America to Betis
Héctor Herrera: 11 million euros from Pachuca to FC Porto.
Raúl Jiménez: 10.5 million euros from America to Atlético de Madrid.

As we can see, all players on the Liga MX side are Mexicanwhile of MLS Almirón is Paraguayan, Davies Canadian and Buksa Polish, which speaks a little better about the development of youth in Mexican football, however, with the recent “wave” of American football players sold in Europe, surely in In few years, all the members of this select club will be of North American origin.
