Tigres planning to dump seven stars during busy summer

Tigres is prepared to sell Enner Valencia, Lucas Zelarayan, Jurgen Damm, Timothée Kolodziejczak, Gutty Estrada, Gringo Torres, and Israel Jimenez during what is shaping up to be a busy transfer window for the club.

According to the front page of La Aficion newspaper, the club presidency will also change hands, with Miguel Angel Garza set to replace Alejandro Rodriguez.

Zelarayan was linked with a move to Club America a couple of weeks ago, while Enner Valencia is reportedly deciding between offers from China and MLS.

Even long-serving goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman is not safe; yesterday he posted a cryptic photograph on Instagram that was widely interpreted as a goodbye message.

Tigres suffered a disappointing end to the 2017/18 season. Despite the joy of beating Rayados in the Apertura final, quarter-final exits in both the Clausura and CONCACAF Champions League mean the club goes into the summer transfer window on a sour note.

One position that’s definitely not under threat is that of manager Tuca Ferretti. He recently signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2020.
