Argentine international midfielder Matias Kranevitter has left Zenit Saint-Petersburg to join reigning Mexican champion Monterrey.

The 26-year-old Kranevitter agreed to personal terms of a four-year deal after Monterrey reportedly paid the Russian club $6 million.

“We continue our search to have the best possible team to meet our objectives,” the Liga MX club said in a statement late Sunday, Jan. 27.

“Kranevitter has just the right attitude needed to wear our colors.”

Kranevitter, who has been capped nine times for Argentina’s national team, is Monterrey’s second signing of the new season, joining striker Ake Loba from Cote d’Ivoire.

Monterrey is currently 16th in the 18-team Liga MX standings after the first three rounds of the Clausura tournament.
