Carlos Vela to Chivas? Vergara reportedly wants El Tri star on loan

Chivas wants to bring Carlos Vela back to Mexico on a loan deal.

Vela currently plays in MLS after joining LAFC from Real Sociedad in January.

The 2018¬†Clausura was one of Chivas’ worst campaigns in recent memory.¬†Almeyda’s side limped into 17th place with just three wins and 14 goals scored all season.

As a result of the under-performance, El Universal says Vergara wants to reinforce his squad ahead of the Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. The report claims a loan deal allows the Chivas owner to strengthen the side without a significant capital outlay.

It is unclear how long the loan agreement would last.

The UAE’s Al-Ain is currently the only other confirmed team for the December event; it qualified automatically as host.
