Ravel Morrison and Rafael Marquez.
There won’t have been many more unlikely team-mates than the Wyhtenshawe-born midfielder and the two-time Champions League winner.
But the pair are set to link up, with Morrison undergoing a medical ahead of a move to Mexican side Atlas.
Morrison has been without a club since leaving Serie A side Lazio in the summer, having made just four league appearances.
He’s not played more than twenty games in a campaign since the 2012/13 season with Birmingham, in which he made 27 Championship appearances.
But the 24-year-old will have another chance to rejuvenate his career, this time in Mexico.
Atlas, who compete in the first division of Mexican football, haven’t won Liga MX since lifting their only title in 1951.
But Los Zorros have plenty of international experience in their squad, including Argentina international Oscar Ustari, Ecuador international Fidel Martinez and Marquez.
Marquez re-signed for Atlas in 2016 having come through their academy in 1996.
But back to Morrison.
This will be the fourth country he’s played his football in.
Can Mexico be the key to unlocking his undoubted potential? Its unlikely to be boring, either way.
