A report from ESPN’s Leon Lecanda on Wednesday stated the deal would be for two years, with the Mexico City side announcing on Thursday that the El Tri star had officially joined the team.

The Liga MX Clausura season kicks off on Jan. 7. Las Aguilas finished top the regular season table of the recently completed Apetura campaign but were ousted in the playoffs, with Atlas winning the title.

Dos Santos was a free agent after the Galaxy stated in late November that they had parted ways with the former Designated Player.

During his time with the Galaxy that started in 2017, Dos Santos made 103 appearances for the club and was selected as an MLS All-Star in the 2018 and 2019 seasons. In his last two years, injuries took a toll on regular appearances.

A move to Liga MX is a first for the 31-year-old who has previously also played in LaLiga for Barcelona and Villarreal. Jonathan’s older brother Giovani, who is currently a free agent, previously played for Club America before being dropped over the summer.

Dos Santos’ move to Club America comes two days after fellow El Tri teammate Sebastian Cordova left Las Aguilas for Tigres UANL.
