Yet to sign new LAFC deal
FLos Angeles Football Club
February 26, 2024
Vela has yet to sign a new contract with LAFC and remains a free agent. He wasn't listed on the team's official roster for the first game of the 2024 MLS season, a 2-1 win over Seattle on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Vela has been a synonym for success for LAFC over the last few years, but it's unclear whether the team wants to bring him back or not, as both parties are yet to strike on a deal -- and with the uncertainty of whether the talks are still going or not. As of now, Vela is a free agent and is free to choose with any team he chooses, but LAFC are likely to make one more push to sign him.
