sportsbet Carlos Vela turned his back on Europe to join Los Angeles FC aged 29. Should the former Arsenal striker have achieved more with his talents? Nick Wright examines the Mexican's enigmatic career as he prepares for Saturday's inaugural Los Angeles derby…

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's move from Manchester United to LA Galaxy this week came with the usual fanfare and self-promotion. His tweet confirming the deal, published after an image depicting him as God, was accompanied by the message: "Los Angeles, welcome to Zlatan." A full-page advert taken out in a local newspaper simply read: "You're welcome."

The Swede is the centre of attention in Major League Soccer ahead of the first Los Angeles derby, but the most intriguing new addition in Saturday's game will line up for LA Galaxy's newly-formed opposition. At the age of 29, seven years Ibrahimovic's junior, Carlos Vela has called time on his career in Europe to become the face of Los Angeles FC.

The move, confirmed back in August before he saw out the first half of the season at Real Sociedad, was a coup for MLS. But what did it say about him? How did Vela, one of the most naturally gifted strikers of his generation, end up signing for a team who were yet to play a professional game, in a league of questionable quality, at what should be his peak? sportsbet

It is a curious story which began in 2005, when Vela top scored for Mexico during their triumphant U17 World Cup campaign in Peru. With his speed, skill and instinctive ability in front of goal, the precocious striker shot to the attention of European clubs. Within a few weeks, Arsenal had won the race to sign him from Mexican side Chivas.

Arsenal supporters would have to wait two years for a first-hand sighting of Vela as he was sent on loan to Spain to acquire a work permit, but his talents were clear to everyone at second-division Salamanca, where he spent his first season as a professional in 2006/07, scoring eight goals in 31 appearances.

"He was a just a boy but he had great qualities," Javi López, Salamanca's manager at the time, tells Sky Sports. "He exceeded our expectations. He had an enormous amount of innate ability but above all he was a boy who had a lot of confidence in himself. He knew he had weapons for football and he overcame all the challenges in front of him with relative ease."

López describes Vela as one of the "sensations" of Spain's second division that season, but did he see him as a future star? His answer is emphatic but there are caveats.

"Yes, yes, absolutely, yes," he says. "I always told him that he had the attributes to play at an elite level - for any of the big European teams. But it's not just about having the talent. You need mental strength and above all, desire."

The debate over Vela's desire has followed him throughout his career. Did he truly want to fulfil his potential? Was he ready to make the sacrifices required to make it to the very top? Arsene Wenger grappled with the same questions after Vela finally qualified for a work permit on loan at Osasuna and joined up with Arsenal in 2008. sportsbet

maxbet Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is set to reward Marcus Rashford with a starting role for the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur after he impressed in the midweek Premier League win at Bournemouth.

The Englishman was one of the seven changes made by Mourinho on Wednesday night, and the move paid dividends as United clinched a 2-0 victory – just days after the embarrassing 1-0 home defeat to relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion.

Over the week, Mourinho has highlighted that he would only pick players based on merit for the Cup semi-final, and according to The Sun, Rashford has supposedly got the nod over Sanchez and Alexis Sanchez for a starting spot. maxbet

With Romelu Lukaku due to start, Rashford is likely to slot into the left side of the attack with Lingard on the other flank and the decision is likely to disappoint both Sanchez and Martial – with the latter said to be unsettled at Old Trafford. 

Sanchez arrived at United in January with huge expectations but he has tended to lose possession of the ball on countless occasions which has frustrated the supporters watching. Nevertheless, he can prove an impact player from the bench in a contest which could be decided by the smallest of margins. maxbet

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho explains what really happened with Mohamed Salah transfer
 
wwwpic5678 Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho has contradicted himself when it comes to why he let Mohamed Salah leave Chelsea in 2015. Jose Mourinho insists it was Chelsea who decided to sell Mohamed Salah - despite previously claiming 'it was better not to have Salah back' before letting him join Roma. The 25-year-old has been an absolute revelations since joining Liverpool last summer and has scored a remarkable 43 goals in 47 games this season.

Mourinho brought Salah to Chelsea back in 2013 but the Egyptian superstar made just 19 appearances in his time at Stamford Bridge amid stiff competition from Eden Hazard, Willian and Andre Schurrle. Following a loan move to Fiorentina, Chelsea then allowed Salah to join Roma on another loan deal with a view to making it permanent in August, 2015. At the time, Mourinho claimed that he saw Salah's future 'elsewhere' and that he would leave 'either on loan or sold with an offer we are happy to accept' given that the club had 'five wingers'. He even went as far as to say it was 'better not to have Salah back'. wwwpic5678

But, nearly three years on, the Portuguese has changed his tune.
"People say that I was the one that sold Salah and it is the opposite. I bought Salah," he told ESPN Brazil . "I was the one that told Chelsea to buy Salah. It was with me in charge that Salah came to Chelsea. But he came as a young kid, physically he was not ready, mentally he was not ready, socially and culturally he was lost and everything was tough for him. "We decided to put him on loan and he asked for that as well. He wanted to play more minutes, to mature, he wanted to go and we sent him on loan to Fiorentina, and at Fiorentina he started to mature. Chelsea decided to sell him, OK? "And when they say that I was the one that sold him it is a lie. I bought him. I agreed to send him on loan, I thought it was necessary, I thought that Chelsea had wingers... Some of them are still there like Willian, [Eden] Hazard and all those players already in a different level.

"So the decision to send him on loan was a decision we made collectively, but after that, the decision to sell him and to use that money to buy another player wasn't mine. But even if it was, in football we make mistakes a lot of times, so many times some players develop in way we were not expecting, some other don't reach another level like we thought they would, so I don't even think this is a mistake, it is just part of the job. wwwpic5678
