The player, who saw his star shine in 2022, boasting impressive numbers of 26 goals and 12 assists in 62 games over the past two years, also aspires to reach greater heights. His previous statement on a podcast reveals the ambition to compete in the top European leagues to strengthen his chances of making the United States national team for the 2026 World Cup. A decision that, if realized, could mark a new phase in his career and contribute to the development of American soccer.

Vazquez's possible departure from FC Cincinnati is not just a concern for fans but also a challenge for the team. Quickly acquiring a suitable replacement would not be an easy task, considering the striker's consistent performance in recent years. However, the Cincinnati management appears prepared for all scenarios, indicating that strategic plans are in place to ensure the club remains competitive even in the face of a potential loss.

Meanwhile, the current team, featuring key players like Luciano Acosta and Aaron Boupendza, remains a solid foundation to build the future, even amidst uncertainties.
