Is Jose Villarreal heading off to Mexico?

On Friday, Mexican club Cruz Azul issued a report on their club’s official website stating that Villarreal had joined the club for the upcoming Clausura tournament. That was followed by a report from ESPNFC also stating that Villarreal, San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Rafael Baca and Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Farfan were off to Cruz azul and were currently in Mexico City to undergo medical exams. It is worth mentioning that Villarreal has Mexican citizenship through his parents and would not count as an international if he were to join the Mexico City club. 

When reached, the LA Galaxy declined comment on the report.

Villarreal was a regular for the Galaxy in 2013 with 31 appearances in all competitive competitions tallying three goals and one assist
