LAFC reaches deal with Real Sociedad to sign Mexico star Carlos Vela
The Real Sociedad man looks to be on the move
Former Arsenal player Carlos Vela, also a member of the Mexican national team, is on the verge of a move to MLS. LAFC has reached a deal with Real Sociedad for the star, the Spanish club announced.
The talented 28-year-old is one of the best players on the Mexican national team and has put together a really nice career at Sociedad. After a move to West Brom following three years at Arsenal, he went on to score 41 goals in 72 matches for the Spanish club. Sociedad says he will stay for the first half of the season in Spain and then join LAFC during the winter, right before the 2018 MLS season begins.
It's been a Mexican soccer exodus of sorts to the City of Angels. With Giovani Dos Santos at the Los Angeles Galaxy, his brother Jonathan Dos Santos just joined the club. And now LAFC is about to get its face of the franchise with a player who has more than enough quality to continue playing in Europe. A big get for Bradley, and a fantastic move for the club ahead of its first season.
