Former Tigres star edges closer to sensational return

Former Tigres midfielder Guido Pizarro is edging closer to a return to El Volcan.

Pizarro left Tigres last summer to join Spanish side Sevilla, but he has fallen out of favor with new manager Pablo Machín.

After being a regular before Christmas, he has only started a handful of games since the turn of the year.

A couple of months ago, it was rumored Tigres were battling Boca Juniors for the 28-year-old’s signature, but now it looks like the Monterrey club has won the race.

Pizarro joined Tigres in 2013 and helped Tuca’s side win two league titles and a Copa MX before leaving.

News of the player’s impending return was broken by Argentine journalist César Luis Merlo on Twitter.
