Espanyol Barcelona Tries To Lure Vela Away From Emirates

La Liga outfit Espanyol Barcelona will make a last attempt to lure young Mexican Carlos Vela away from the Gunners to bolster their strike force.

According to reliable sources in Spain is Espanyol’s Director Deportiva Ramón Planes a long time admirer of the 21 years old and hopes to agree terms with the Arsenal management in the next week. Planes wants to fly out to London to discuss terms about a possible transfer of Carlitos, but there are doubts that the Gunners give the Mexican free for a transfer.

The Arsenal management have already rejected approaches by Deportivo La Coruna and Sevilla Football Club for Vela in front of the FIFA World Cup, but Ramòn Planes remains hopeful that he can seal a deal with Gunners chairman Peter-Hill-Wood for a season long loan with possible buy-option in the next week.

The Catalonia side is for the second time interested in the services of the Cancun native after failing last summer to bring the talented striker to Estadio Olympico de Montjuic.

Exclusive: Arsenal Football Club May Have Lost Vela’s Passport and Visa

Reliable sources from Mexico claiming that Arsenal Football Club could have lost Carlos Vela’s passport as well as his Visa for the United States in front of the Barcelona clash. So far the young forward received bad treatment  for loosing his passport, but now we understand that the Mexican has handed out his personal documents to the club, but Arsenal’s management could not find them.

The 21 years old has to leave England to travel to his native country Mexico to get there his new visa for the United States, because it is impossible to get it in England for the young Arsenal striker. There is no date terminated for Vela’s trip, but he expects to make the trip as soon as possible.

Exclusive quotes of El-Tri director Nestor de la Torre could give us a light in the darkness:

“Yes, he lost his passport, his representative talked to me about it in front of the Barcelona trip, it is true that he does not travel to Barcelona because of it”

“it is not clear if he or the club lost it. The reality is that he has already delivered the passport to the club, then they returned it to themselves and later he delivered it again to the club, but they could not find them”

“we are working on all,  because he also lost his visa for the United States. We have knowledge of the case and we look out what we can do for him because in England he cannot extract his visa, he has to come to Mexico to extract it”
