Real Sociedad hotshot Carlos Vela is ready to consider a move to Major League Soccer, his official representative has suggested.
Colorado Rapids are believed to have offered the Mexican a chance to move to the United States and it would appear that the forward is considering his options at the moment.
Carlos Vela’s agent Eduardo Hernandez has moved to confirm that his client is not against joining the MLS club.
“In his case, we’re waiting on something happening. The MLS have a say, when a club registers interest in a player, there is the right of the first approach,” Hernandez told FOX Sports.
“This is what has happened with Colorado. They have a right to be present, and the same right can be transferred to another club. We want to hear from them, but that doesn’t mean he’ll go.
“You have to understand that Carlos has spent 10 years playing in Europe, far from his family, and why the USA is an alternative.
“But that doesn’t mean it is his immediate future. It can be now or in two or three years. We don’t know yet.”
Carlos Vela has developed into one of La Liga’s leading forwards since joining Real Sociedad from Arsenal, and he managed impressive 59 goals and 35 assists in 170 competitive appearances for La Real.
But, with the Basque side largely struggling at the moment, it looks as though the Mexican is ready to jump ship and leave the Spanish league altogether.
And while a move to Major League Soccer would bring Vela closer to his family, he would probably miss out on the opportunity to prove his worth in a top European club.
