Rodolfo Pizarro could soon be leaving Inter Miami as his representatives were seen meeting with club officials. While the details of the conversations are not yet known, a transfer could be imminent for the Mexican national. 

This wouldn’t be the first time rumors swirl around Pizarro. Earlier in the 2021 season, the striker was linked with a possible move back to Liga MX as broadcaster Fernando Cevallos reported Monterrey and Chivas as possible destinations for the 27-year-old.

The rumors continue to maintain a tie to the Mexican league. Pizarro has connections with Club de Futbol Monterrey and Club Deportivo Guadalajara, having played there during his time in Mexico. 

The striker spent two years with the Rayados of Monterrey, debuting on July 21, 2018. He rejoined former Pachuca manager Diego Alonso to become an integral part of the club’s success. 

After a career start with Pachuca, Pizarro transferred to Guadalajara in December 2016 for a reported $15m. He debuted against Pumas and quickly rose up to become a pivotal player for the club. 

In 2016, he won the Clausura Copa MX against Morelia, celebrating his first trophy with the club. Pizarro became known as the best young player for his side in 2018, prompting him to gain league-wide attention. 

Two years later, the striker left for Monterrey to serve before reaching MLS. 

He inspired Rayados to lift the 2019 Concacaf Champions League trophy against rivals Tigres UANL by joining forces with teammate Angel Zaldivar on the attack. Later that year, Pizarro aided the Mexican club to win the Apertura championship against Club America. 

Pizarro finally made his way to Major League Soccer, signing with Inter Miami in February 2020 before the team’s inaugural season. He has recorded seven goals and 11 assists in 43 games for the MLS expansion team, even earning a Landon Donovan MVP Award nomination during his first season. 

Now, the player could soon be on his way back to Mexico as his future under Phil Neville remains very much up in the air.
