Corona signed for FC Twente in 2013 from Mexican side Monterray, and went on to make 46 Eredivisie appearances for the Tukkers, scoring 12 goals.

The loss of Corona ends a dreadful transfer window for FC Twente, with the manager-less club losing the likes of Luc Castaignos, Bilal Ould-Chikh, Youness Mokhtar, Kasper Kusk this summer due to poor finances. The club will not sign a replacement for Corona, despite being linked with Wolves winger Rajiv van la Parra.
