While Lainez asks for 2 million, the player who would be free just for playing in America
America has had serious problems in terms of its signings. The team has made bad decisions regarding the signings it has made in recent seasons. Now for the Clausura 2023, the team only made two signings and neither of them really helps them compete for the championship. Diego Lainez was expected to arrive at América but in the end Santiago Baños ended up rejecting the proposal.
It seemed that Diego Lainez was one step away from re-signing a contract with the Eagles after his failure with Betis in Spain and Braga in Portugal. However, the academy player asked for a salary of 2 million dollars per season to sign with the team. The salary would put him as one of the best paid in the entire League, for which Santiago Baños rejected the proposal.

Apart from Diego Laínez, there was talk of several players who could reach America. Among the most recognized players were Raúl Jiménez, Keylor Navas, Carlos Vela and even Isco Alarcón, however none of them seem to be close to the club. Santiago Baños recently declared that several players they were looking for were asking a lot to play for América, among them was Diego Lainez.
The player who would be free in America
Diego Lainez asked for one of the highest salaries in the entire Liga MX despite the fact that he does not have one of the best resumes. However, despite the fact that several players usually ask for a significant salary at the club, there are others who take discounts for the simple fact of playing for the club. Jürgen Damm, for example, earns half of what he earned in Atlanta.
