Following the game against the Columbus Crew on Saturday, the contracts of both players will expire.

“Everybody knows how happy I am in L.A., how happy I am in this team,” Vela said. “But it’s a job, it’s a business. We know sometimes it [doesn’t work out] the way you want. We are two different sides and we have to be on the same page. But I’m not thinking about that, I’m thinking just about the final and the big chance we have to win the trophy.

“After that we will have time to talk and see if something works. If it doesn’t, everybody will be on their way and we’ll have good memories and good history together.”

Vela, 34, is the sole player from Real Sociedad in Spain who is still with the team. He was the club’s first major acquisition, coming from the team before its 2018 season. Vela has played a key role in transforming LAFC into the league’s most potent offensive force over the past six years.

The veteran Juventus center back Chiellini joined LAFC in the summer and has played in 44 games across all competitions. Despite enduring some persistent ailments following his transfer to Major League Soccer, Chiellini has been an indispensable member of LAFC’s squad during the last three months of the campaign. Since September 17, Chiellini’s 10 outings for LAFC have resulted in victories, with clean sheets in the previous three postseason games.

We are now seeing the development of Inter Miami, which will be a power in the league at the start of the next season.

Inter Miami CF’s head coach, Gerardo “Tata” Martino, has declared that the Club is once again interested in bringing in former teammate Luis Suárez during the upcoming winter transfer window.

Martino stated that the team is still interested in signing the 36-year-old Uruguayan during a press conference the day before Miami’s final MLS home game, which ended in a 2-2 draw with Charlotte FC.
