Portuguese media report that Mexican winger and left-back ‘Tecatito’ Corona is close to leaving Porto for historic Spanish side Sevilla. They also say that 12 million euros are on the table.
28-year-old Mexican footballer Jesus “Tecatito” Corona is on the verge of joining his fourth professional club since making his debut with Rayados de Monterrey in August 2010. It is strongly rumored the deal between his current club Porto of Portugal and Spain’s Sevilla about the quantity.
“The final fee could be 12 million euros,” said specialist journalist Fabrizio Romano. Also, Ojogo newspaper says it is only a matter of time before both clubs make the transfer of the dynamic Mexican player official.
The newspaper confirms that the board of directors of Sevilla FC traveled to Portugal to hand over the contract to Matías Bunge, the manager of “Tecatito” Corona. The deal would bring him to his third European team since joining F.C. Twente, a Dutch professional football club, in 2013. The player would be at the disposal of coach Julen Lopetegui, who already knows him since he coached him at Porto.
Corona’s contract has only increased in value by $7 million since Monterrey sold him for $5 million to F.C. Twente. After playing three seasons, he left the Dutch team being bought by his current club, FC Porto.

TransferMarkt, the site specializing in player transfers, values the contract of the Mexican player at 30 million euros ($35 mil). The sale for 12 million euros is complemented by an agreement whereby the player gives up a percentage of his transfer.
Porto’s concern if an agreement is not reached is that the player’s contract with the Portuguese club ends in less than a year. And the player could leave for free.
Can be confirmed in short
So with all parties in agreement, “Tecatito” will be able to join the highly competitive Spanish league. La Liga no longer counts with stars like Lionel Messi or Sergio Ramos. But it has brilliant players like the French Antoine Griezmann and Karim Benzema, or the Uruguayan Luis Suárez, among many others.
Last season 2020-21, Sevilla had a good run in the competition. The club finished fourth in La Liga, behind Spain’s big three, champions Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, and Barcelona. So the Mexican is expected to be soon added to the team and come back to the hunt for the top places in the 2021-22 season table, which will play its second matchday this weekend.
