Carlos Vela admits that Arsenal have the option to sign him back from Real Sociedad and the striker could return to the Emirates one day.
Vela joined Real Sociedad on loan in 2011, and later moved to the club as part of a permanent deal in 2012.
Vela played as a right winger last season, and still managed to score 14 goals. His form has given fire to rumours that the Mexican could be returning to London.
Vela told Sky Sports before his game against Manchester United that there is such a clause in his contract, but he thinks that it is not the right time to return to Arsenal right now.
However, he admitted that he could still join the Gunners one day.
He told Sky Sports: “Yes they [Arsenal] have the option.
“Every summer they can take the buy option. But for the moment it is difficult.
“They are good now, I am good now. I don’t think it is the best moment to go back to Arsenal.”
When asked about joining them in the future, he replied, “Maybe.”
