The questions in Guadalajara have been answered.

Omar Bravo Tordecillas of Los Mochis, Sinaloa has signed with the Kansas City Wizards of Major League Soccer.

Over the past couple of weeks, confusion surrounded the Guadalajara fans as their second best striker in the history of their club was not added to the list of players that would compete in the incoming local tournament.

Omar Bravo Tordecillas has been with Chivas of Guadalajara since his early years as he was the result of their youth development program.

Since his debut in 2001, Omar Bravo's career has been filled with accomplishments, titles, and with his name is many history books in the club and international level.

His talent landed him in the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany in which he was Team Mexico's top scorer with the two goals scored vs. Iran in his World Cup debut.

As a result of his performance in Germany, many teams showed interest in the Mexican striker.

Bravo's dream was to play in Europe, bit with so many offers on the table, Omar Bravo insisted to Chivas Management to facilitate his exit to join a European club.

This provided bad media and the relationship between Bravo and Guadalajara President Jorge Vergara has deteriorated over time.

After punishing the striker for publicly announcing his desire to leave and with Bravo becoming a free agent, the Sinaloa native signed a three-year contract with Deportivo la Coruña of Spain.

Omar Bravo was living out his dream, but this dream would soon come to grips with his difficult reality.

Coach Miguel Angel Lotina was not giving the striker many opportunities on the field and with the World Cup in South Africa around the corner, Bravo returned to Mexico only to realize how much the stay in Spain affected his performance.

It took Omar Bravo over a year to find a constant rhythm, and as previously discussed in another article, Bravo was no longer a fan favorite and his career began to exit the spotlight.

The spotlight is now back on Omar Bravo as he takes on the challenge to start off fresh, to try a different style of play, and try to conquer new horizons.

With speedy forward Kei Kamara as his future teammate in Kansas City, it seems that Juan Pablo Angel and Thierry Henry will not be the only Dynamic Duo in the MLS.

The news of this shocking transfer has just been made public in Mexico as of July 17, 2010.

Reactions are expected and so is Bravo's presence in the MLS.

With Cuauhtemoc Blanco's great performance in Chicago and Luis Angel Landin's lack of experience in Houston, Omar Bravo has the task to show his many talents and prove why the signings of Mexican player in U.S. soccer is beneficial to the league.

Omar Bravo will report with Kansas City in the next few hours to complete the signing process and will join the team as they prepare to qualify to the MLS Playoffs hoping to conquer the league.

Welcome, Omar Bravo, to a league full of growth and potential.

Welcome to the home of rising stars and beautiful displays of football.

Welcome to Major League Soccer.
