They are all accused of having ties with alleged drug trafficker Raul Flores Hernandez.

Marquez is hoping to play in his fifth World Cup for El Tri.

Marquez, who now plays with Atlas in Liga MX, has been sanctioned for alleged support of a drug trafficking organization led by Raul Flores Hernandez.

A former FC Barcelona star has been accused of being a "front person" for a Mexican drug cartel. The entities include restaurants, bars, tourism, music production, the Grand Casino in Guadalajara, the Mexican Football club, and Club Deportivo Morumbi.

However, Alvarez, known as "El Rey de la Taquilla" or the king of the box office for his ability to pack out Mexican stadiums, rushed to the defence of his "great friend" Marquez.

Federal drug trafficking indictments against Flores Hernandez were returned in March in Washington and the southern district of California.

Marquez has made more than 140 appearances for the senior Mexican national team, and most recently played at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation at the end of June and beginning of July.

"Today several news outlets reported that I am part of an investigation conducted by the U.S. Treasury Department for alleged ties to criminal organization". Under the terms of the briefing, the official could not be named.

Marquez's soccer academy and health and rehabilitation clinics were among the sanctioned organizations, according to Reuters. It claimed to have provided food, educational and sports programs for about 1,000 low-income kids. The musician said he did not need to join the drug trade because he "earned" his money. "They like these norteno singers, because these guys create ballads about their exploits and it adds to their legend, to the folklore".

The U.S. statement did not say whether Marquez or any of the others sanctioned face charges in the United States, but the ruling reportedly means that any assets they possess under USA jurisdiction will be frozen.
