Cruz Azul, eager to repatriate one of its brightest talents, envisions the possibility of having Vela in its ranks. However, the 34-year-old player seems to have other plans, fueling speculation that his heart may be more inclined to beat in Spain than in Mexico.

Real Sociedad, the club where Carlos Vela enjoyed success and memorable moments, appears to be the player's preference. Emotional connection and positive memories may be decisive factors in his final decision. The looming question is whether he will choose to follow the nostalgia and familiarity of Real Sociedad or succumb to the appeal of returning to his homeland with Cruz Azul.

Regardless of the choice, Carlos Vela's decision will have repercussions not only on his career but also on how he is perceived by fans and soccer enthusiasts.
