According to ESPN, Real Madrid are set to buy Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela!
Vela is being sought by the European Champions as they expect Alvaro Morata to move on, his most likely destination being Juventus.
The Morata deal could set off a chain of transfers, Vela aside. The word is that Real Madrid may loan Asier Illaramendi back to Sociedad after his relatively poor first season in the hope of being given first option on French winger Antoine Griezmann.
Vela, who had been touted for a move back to former club Arsenal, has impressed since signing permanently for Sociedad in 2011 and has scored 30 league goals over the course of his last two seasons at the club.
