After an impressive season on loan at Real Sociedad it appears that Carlos Vela has done himself no harm in the hunt for a permanent move away from the Emirates.
While a deal at Sociedad appears unlikely, due to his wage demands, agent Eduardo Hernandez made clear that he had been approached by several other ‘important’ sides.
“We are in talks,” he told press in Mexico. “There are several clubs interested in him because he had an exceptional year. All the clubs are important, because Carlos has shown the talent and strength he has.”
Still under contract at Arsenal, Hernandez also hinted that a return to the Emirates was possible, although that decision lay firmly in the hands of the boss.
“Back to Arsenal could be an option, but I do not know if it’s ideal. [Arsenal] are one of the biggest clubs in the world, but Carlos wants to play. The decision will be made by Arsene Wenger.”
“Any player needs playing time to show what he has and to get into a rhythm, he participated a lot [at Sociedad] and these are the results.”
Having been called-up by Mexico to represent his country at the Olympics, Hernandez also confirmed his client had turned down the opportunity to focus on finding a new club.
“(London 2012) is an important showcase, a championship broadcast worldwide, but what he did in Spain was impressive. He took the decision (not to go) and spoke with the people on the national team.”
Cheers to @SiuFay for the heads up again.
