Spanish Alvaro Fidalgo will stay with America until 2026

MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) — Spanish midfielder Álvaro Fidalgo announced Friday that he has extended his contract with the United States by two years and will remain with the team until 2026.

The 25-year-old had already signed a deal that would have kept him at the club until 2024, but the management decided to extend it for a further 24 months.

Fidalgo, who played in the lower ranks of Real Madrid and Real Castilla, landed in February 2021 with just a six-month contract in Mexico, which was extended for a further three years in the same summer.

“America gave me an incredible opportunity two years ago to show that I can play in the first division and do great things,” the Spaniard said at a press conference. “The only thing I can do to be grateful is to win titles and be professional.”

Fidalgo joined a squad selected by Argentine coach Santiago Solari, who led Real Madrid, and met them in Spain.

Although “Indicito” Solari was dismissed early last year, Fidalgo remained with Argentina coach Fernando Ortiz as the undisputed starter.

“Maguito” is considered one of the most regular foreign players in America. He has played 45 matches in the last four tournaments, more than any other foreign player at the club.

“In the end, the renewal was easy, we all agreed that we wanted to extend two years, that we wanted to continue together, that there was still a lot to do,” Fidalgo said. “We are going to move forward on the road together and try to win the title.”

America, Mexico’s most successful team with 13 championships, has not lifted a crown since the Apertura 2018.
