Carlos Vela is likely to move away from the club on a permament basis this summer, having spent a successful season on loan at Real Sociedad. However, his agent, Eduardo Hernández says he’s still waiting to hear from Arsenal and that it comes to negotiation time, they’re not the easiest to work with.
Speaking to El Mundo Deportivo, Hernández said, “I am waiting for the call from Arsenal to find out what their intentions are with respect to Carlos. I can’t meet with Real as long as they don’t tell me what they want to do.
“But the summer is long and it’s hard to know when you can complete a deal like this.”
Sociedad’s pre-season training begins in a little over two weeks time and it’s unlikely that anything will be sorted by then, with Hernández admitting he hasn’t spoken to Vela in a number of days. It’s clear the Mexican would be interested in staying with the Basque club though.
“We’ve talked about the situation. He was very comfortable with Real and has said several times that he would like to continue there. ”
Ultimately though, it’s up to Arsenal and this isn’t the first time this summer we’ve heard Vela’s agent say he’s waiting on the club to make a decision regarding Vela.
“They’re a tough nut to crack when it comes to negotiation,” he said, “but we’re in no hurry.”
