Carlos Vela transfer saga intensifies: Where will the Mexican go?

At the ripe age of 34, Carlos Vela is no spring chicken. He has had a wonderful career so far, playing for world-class teams such as Arsenal and Real Sociedad, and for reputable ones such as West Bromwich Albion, Celta Vigo, Salamanca, and Osasuna, only to finally arrive at BMO Stadium where he currently plays for 2022 Major League Soccer champions Los Angeles.

Despite his age, he certainly still has what it takes to play at the highest level. That’s why rumours started to spread like wildfire regarding his future. There has to be something to the Carlos Vela transfer news out there, right? Let’s see where the 34-year-old finisher can take his business.

Carlos Vela signed for Los Angeles back in 2018, and throughout the years he managed to make a name for himself in MLS. Undoubtedly, the highlight of his Major League Soccer career was the 2022 league title, which he worked hard to achieve.

His six-year-long stay at BMO Stadium and his friendship with coach Steven Cherundolo might just prove most Carlos Vela transfers wrong. Will Carlos Vela return for another season with Los Angeles in the Major League Soccer? It certainly looks like an option, but certainly not the best one he has right now.

Is a Carlos Vela transfer to Real Sociedad possible?

Sure, the Mexican’s highest peak was playing for Premier League’s Arsenal, but his career will surely be remembered for his La Liga performances with the highly reputable Real Sociedad. He joined the Spanish club on a season-long loan back in 2011, during which he made 35 appearances for the club, scoring on 12 occasions. This earned him a six-year deal with the club, in which he managed to make a total of 184 appearances.

So, will the love between the two sides rekindle? The Carlos Vela transfer news sending him to La Liga seem to be among the most frequent ones. According to recent rumours, Real Sociedad are pushing hard for Vela’s signature, as they are looking to boost the attack with an experienced trooper. Will the La Liga giants be able to sign Vela before the transfer clock runs out? We will have to wait and see.

Shocking Carlos Vela transfer approaches?

Some other sources indicate that Carlos Vela is considering the option to join cross-town rivals LA Galaxy. Should he make this move, the fans will undoubtedly consider it an aberration. However, he already spent six years in the Major League Soccer, so he’s definitely used to the routine and he does seem quite happy living in Los Angeles. If coach Steven Cherundolo doesn’t change his mind and send Vela a new contract soon, we might just see the free agent take his talents to Dignity Health Sports Park.

The Liga MX Carlos Vela transfer rumor

Last, but certainly not least, we have Carlos Vela returning where it all began – in Mexico. Any Liga MX team would kill to have a player of his caliber among the starters, but it seems that Chivas Guadalajara are the most persistent fans of his talents.

So, will the Goats be able to snap up such a prolific player on a free transfer? The climate for such a deal is surely there. After all, the Goats’ men in charge just recently appointed Real Madrid legend Fernando Gago as their new head coach. They will surely try to tempt Vela to work with the former Los Blancos hero. It’s a matter of time before one of these Carlos Vela transfer rumors becomes true. We will have to be patient in order to find out which one.
