Former Valencia forward Claudio Lopez, now sporting director at Colorado Rapids, has confirmed talks with Real Sociedad for Carlos Vela.
Vela was said to be close to leaving Anoeta over the summer but stayed yet the link to the MLS hasn’t gone away.
“We’re already negotiating with Real Sociedad and the player,” Lopez is quoted as telling Bola VIP by AS.
A fee of €15m would be expected by La Real to sign the Mexico international, who was left out of Eusebio Sacristan’s first squad as Coach.
AS notes that news on Vela’s possible move to Colorado is expected in the next few weeks.
