Report Barcelona and Carlos Vela reach a loan agreement

first_imgAccording to an explosive report from Diario Sport, FC Barcelona has reached a loan agreement with Carlos Vela for the rest of the season.It was just this week when we found out that Carlos Vela was the unknown player whom Barcelona was after to replace Munir’s exit, a report from this Friday suggests that the club and the player’s agent have reached a loan agreement for the rest of the season.The Catalan club still doesn’t completely close the deal because they are still talking specs about the whole situation, as Los Angeles FC refused to sell the player because they still consider him one of the most valuable players in MLS and they believe that he has a bright future ahead of him in the United States as a franchise professional.But the American club also believes that having some of their best player on loan during their break will help them improve their level of performance and bring it back to the MLS in order to bring a more spectacular style of football.But FC Barcelona also has another ace under their sleeve, a mystery player that they have refused to announce so far with whom they are currently also having meetings to see if he would be keen on coming to FC Barcelona for the rest of the season.#NoticiaSPORT | Acuerdo total con Vela a la espera del último ‘tapado’ https://t.co/3GPZaojaLB pic.twitter.com/OFqHz2i8Pj— Diario SPORT (@sport) January 18, 2019The main problem for Carlos Vela is he completely accepted to play for Barcelona, is the fact that he would have to come accepting a series of details that he may not like.For starters, having a player like Luis Suarez as the main striker for the squad is something that gets in the way of Carlos Vela’s possible wishes to feature more for Barcelona.The Mexican would need to come under the condition that he has to take a back seat and only play when manager Ernesto Valverde decides to rest the Uruguay international for less important matches throughout the season, Vela is coming from a start-treatment situation in Los Angeles and adapting to this environment would be slightly difficult for him is he doesn’t understand where he stands in the food chain.There is no way that he will succeed in a club like Barcelona if he comes in with a “prima donna” attitude thinking that he can take the spot from one of the best strikers of the last 10 years, the upside of all this is that Valverde himself has vouched for the Mexican’s arrival because he truly believes that he can help them out for the remains of the season.Report: Barcelona is rumored to be interested in #LAFC forward Carlos Vela. 👀 https://t.co/hEcHQIFJd1 pic.twitter.com/r4HhLxCZO2Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.— Major League Soccer (@MLS) January 18, 2019Another thing to consider is Carlos Vela’s family situation, as his wife is from Spain and she would be keen on returning to the country at least for a good part of 2019 in order to keep raising the son they have in the country he was born.If the deal finally goes through between Barcelona and Carlos Vela, it would be because the club wasn’t able to reach this agreement with the mystery player they have refused to reveal so far, or because Vela simply doesn’t want to do the whole “being a sub” act when he is already the star of a club in a different league.But then again, giving up the opportunity to play for a club like FC Barcelona is something that any player would be crazy to refuse.Vela should give a call to Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez and ask him about the experience he had when he played for Real Madrid on loan for a single season.The former Manchester United player is a great example that this scenario can be possible, Hernandez played there for a few months and it was one of the most rewarding experiences of his career.Vela as well could tell his grandchildren that he played alongside Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona, just like ‘Chicharito’ can tell his grandchildren that he played alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.Barcelona are said to be interested in signing former Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela in January. pic.twitter.com/IgC6qJmwzy— Lilian Chan (@bestgug) January 17, 2019If the deal goes through for Carlos Vela, which position do you think suits him better?
