Carlos el “Gullit” Peña would not be the only Mexican to visit exotic lands. Gibrán Lajud could compete against Cristiano Ronaldo for a league title in Saudi Arabian soccer. Al-Hilal, the team that wants the goalkeeper, it was runner-up in the Club World Cup and is fourth in the Arab tournament.
According to information from journalist Rafael Huesca, Lajud would be on the radar of the Arab team. The main motivation of this team is the Lebanese ancestry of the goalkeeper, this would allow him to be on the squad without occupying any foreign position. This club has players of the stature of Gustavo Cuellar, Luciano Vietto, André Carrillo, Odion Ighalo and Moussa Marega.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper still belongs to Santos Laguna. In June of this year, Lajud’s contract with the Lagunero team ends. But this goalkeeper is currently under the shadow of Carlos Acevedo.
