€4m Vela back to Arsenal not imminent judging by his Twitter activity

Carlos Vela Arsenal

Carlos Vela is currently on holiday, so his future is not likely to be resolved in the next couple of days.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with bringing Mexican forward Carlos Vela back to the club this summer, two years after he left for Real Sociedad on a permanent deal. The Gunners have a buy-back clause in place for the player - believed to be in the region of £3.25 million.

Earlier this week the Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay admitted Arsenal wanted him back - but also stated that Vela himself had made it clear he wanted to stay in San Sebastian.

Today the plot thickened, as reports claimed Arsenal would sign the player, before selling him almost immediately.

It is certainly going to be a arduous summer deal, which might take a while to be concluded.

Vela has remained quiet on the issue, but with him deciding not to travel to the World Cup with Mexico there is plenty of time for him to finalise a deal.

But according to his Twitter account, don't expect a deal in the next couple of days.

He has shared photos of himself on holiday today - taking in a NBA Finals game between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.

Translated his messages read...

Family time :) supporting the heat until the end in the good and the bad

And good luck to @miseleccionmx in the world I wish I can win it, return to disconnect me from the Twitter holiday greetings ;)

So no deal seems likely to be sorted any time soon.
