Independiente are still working on figuring out a satisfactory way to pay América the $3.8m they owe them for Cecilio Domínguez.

The Paraguay winger left América to join El Rojo in January 2019, but the Mexican side have yet to receive payment for the deal.

The Azulcrema took action to force the Argentinian outfit to pay the debt, and Independiente are now facing FIFA sanctions if they fail solve the problem promptly.

Independiente had offered to send the 25-year-old back to Las Águilas, but the recent loan signing of Sergio Díaz from Real Madrid has left América manager Miguel Herrera well stocked in the attacking department.

With that avenue closed off, ESPN reports that Independiente are hoping to offload Domínguez to MLS in the hope of bringing adding $4m to their coffers.

They would give $1.6m of that fee to América, and pay the outstanding $2.2m in installments of $700,000 every six months.

ESPN’s report suggests that América’s hierarchy may take a dim view of this proposal, given the current global economic situation and the fact that they would be waiting another two years to be paid in full for Domínguez.
