After reports surfaced this afternoon from ESPN Deportes about Rafael Baca, Michael Farfan and Jose Villareal joining Liga MX side Cruz Azul, a source close to the situation in LA has said that Villareal could be joining on loan.
Villareal, in search of more first team minutes, is looking for a change of scenery. The source says Villareal has talked about a loan in the past with Galaxy management and could be loaned to Cruz Azul for the entire Clausura 2014 campaign. His loan would start January 1 and end May 18.
More information to come.
UPDATE 1 : Source confirms Michael Farfan to Cruz Azul is OFFICIAL. Full transfer, not a loan. More details on contract and transfer fee to come.
UPDATE 2: Source says Villareal's loan will be until mid-May. Galaxy then have option to bring him back or let him stay on loan exclusively at Cruz Azul until December 2014. Cruz Azul then would have option to buy player if it reaches that stage.
