    TOLUCA, Mexico – Toluca announced Monday the acquisition of forward Juan Manuel Salgueiro on a six-month loan from Paraguay’s Olimpia. 

    The Uruguayan is the Red Devils’ third and final roster addition ahead of the 2014 Liga MX Clausura, joining Carlos Orrantia and Miguel Ponce.

    "I want to give the jersey to Juan Manuel, knowing it is a big responsibility, and one we hope will meet the objectives set for this tournament," said Jesus Vallejo Gonzalez, Toluca’s president, welcoming Salgueiro at a press conference.

    The 30-year-old, whose previous experience with Mexican football was a short stint with Necaxa in 2007, boasts an impressive resume.  He won the 2009 Copa Libertadores with Estudiantes de la Plata of Argentina and captured the 2010 Recopa Sudamericana as a member of Ecuador’s Liga de Quito.

    Over his 12-year career, Salgueiro has also played for Danubio (Uruguay), Murcia (Spain), and San Lorenzo (Argentina).

    Toluca opens the new domestic season at Pachuca on January 4 and will face the San Jose Earthquakes in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in March.
