Pachuca puts whole squad on transfer list

Herculez Gomez and Jose Francisco Torres are up for sale.

Mexican club Pachuca, which employs the two United States internationals, placed its entire first-team squad on the transfer list in the aftermath of the team's disappointing Clausura campaign. Los Tuzos, not even six months removed from an appearance in the FIFA Club World Cup, finished last in their group, missed out on the liguilla and forced management to consider wholesale changes.

Just because Gomez, Torres and everybody else appear on the transfer list does not mean that they are destined to be elsewhere by the start of next season, but it's a sign that Pachuca is more than willing to listen to offers for their services.

Where would you like to see Gomez and Torres wind up? Another team in Mexico? Staying put at Pachuca? MLS?

    Its a fact that Europe follows the Mexican League more for prospects and players for immediate help. There’s PAID transfers every year for players based in Mexico

    Torres has never played for a professional US team.

    And Gomez seems game seems to just play better in Mexico, whether it was Puebla or Pachuca.

    I’d like to see him tryout for clubs in Europe.

    Both should stay in Mexico. Gomez played many years in MLS and was viewed as a washed out player. Why would he come back? Besides the money is better on the other side. Torres should stay or move to Europe.

    Jose Francisco Torres is from Longview, Texas. Therefore I think he should come play for Owner Dan Hunt and Head Coach Schellas Hyndman at FC Dallas. He would really help FC Dallas in the attacking central midfield position, plus his family and friends could always make the 2 1/2 hour drive to Frisco, TX to watch Jose play live. Just my 0.02

    MLS please. That way i can watch them, and two, I think they would both get more starting opportunities. I’d love to see Torres in a leadership/relied upon position instead of on the outside looking in. He needs to be counted upon to grow.
