Vela set to join ex manager in Spain
By 1970’s Gooner
Media reports in Mexico have shed more light in the mooted move of Carlos Vela away from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
He is set to join Real Saragoza in Spain who are currently managed by ex Mexico national side manager Javier Aguirre.
Aguirre knows Vela’s abilities very well selecting him in Mexico’s World Cup squad.
Real Saragoza are currently embroiled in a relegation fight and Aguirre has only been appointed their manager two weeks ago.
Apparently he has requested Zaragoza to enquire about the status of Vela at Arsenal.
It is reported that Vela has already told Arsene Wenger of his desire to leave the team in order to have more activity. It is expected that at first he would go out on loan with an option for Saragoza to buy.
Vela, 21, has a valid contract for three more seasons with Arsenal.
