Few months ago, Jose Juan Macías revolutionized Mexico. After great appearances in Chivas de Guadalajara, he set out for Spain to fulfill his European dream, but did not have the expected success. On July 5, 2021, his arrival at Getafe was made official as one of the Mexican promises and now, six months later, his future is uncertain: he could return to his country.
The forward arrived on loan until the middle of 2022. At Azulón he never achieved the prominence he expected: He barely played 221 minutes and has not played in La Liga since October 3, when he entered a single minute in the 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad. Now, they plan to break the loan in advance and go in search of other attackers.
It did not have the prominence I expected.
The big problem is that Getafe started the season very badly with seven consecutive defeats, a fact that cost Michel González his place. It was precisely the coach who trusted the 22-year-old attacker. Since then and with the arrival of Quique Sánchez Flores, he only had action for 24 minutes in the 5-1 win against CFJ Mollerussa in the first round of the Copa del Rey.
Beyond not having been injured or having suffered Covid-19, Macías was part of the substitute bench in three of the 12 games that Getafe played since their short-lived participation against Real. In the important and unexpected 1-0 victory against Real Madrid at the start of 2022, he was not among those called up.
It is not to the taste of the new coach.
JJ is the fifth striker in the consideration of DT Sánchez Flores and therefore would not take it into account for the semester that has just started. Since the Copa match, he has not received the coach’s summons and his situation is worrying. In fact, the picture seems to get more and more complicated as the club is determined to bring in another striker in the current transfer market.
The Turk Enes Unal Y Sandro Ramirez seem fixed for Quique and when someone has failed due to injury, the Madrid coach has used Jaime Mata and to a lesser extent to Dario Poveda. That is why the Getafe board of directors plans to break the loan with Chivas and for Macías to return to Mexico in order to go after another footballer who is to the taste of the coach.

“Mexican football is very inflated. The prices take you through the roof and there are teams that pay 15 million for you when in Europe they don’t pay you that. There is a business of the clubs to sell you locally.”He commented a few months ago as soon as his transfer to the Old Continent was confirmed.
Furthermore, when it was introduced he said: “I am fulfilling a goal, more than a dream. You set your goals and you achieve them and the dreams are only there. All I want is to win a position here, enjoy it and the future is uncertain”. It seems difficult to imagine that the institution on the outskirts of Madrid invests in it.

Macías shone in León, where he was loaned out before making his debut at Chivas. There he scored 19 goals and gave two assists in the 40 games that he took to the field of play. In addition, in Guadalajara he converted 23 goals in 75 matches. In terms of titles, he lifted the Concachampions in the 2017/2018 season and was distinguished as the top scorer in the Concacaf Champions U20.
On the other hand, the Nanny Martino made it debut in the Selection of Mexico on October 3, 2019, when he was just 20 years old. He participated in five games (four for the Nations League and a friendly) and sent the ball to the back of the net four times.
