Alexis Vega and Chivas are going through important moments in their contractual relationship, as the striker's contract with the Guadalajara team expires in December and he has not yet signed a contract extension, as he hopes to leave for Europe in the summer of this year.

However, Vega is the team's most important player and one of the best in Liga MX, which is why he has become a regular in Gerardo Martino's call-ups to the Mexican national team.
In addition, the 24-year-old Mexican player, who is loved by all the Chivahermanos, is expected to extend his contract with the Guadalajara team after three years with them.
With that in mind, here are the reasons why Chivas should renew Alexis Vega.
Third best Mexican goal scorer in the season
Vega's five goals in the campaign, without being a nominal '9', placed him, for the moment, as the third-best Mexican scorer of the Clausura 2022, only behind Pachuca's Víctor Guzmán and Tigres' Juan Pablo Vigón.
At 24 years of age, it is Vega who has been the most important player in Chivas' offense and is ahead of Jesús Angulo, Ángel Zaldívar, Roberto Alvarado, and José Juan Macías, who have not been able to respond as well as Vega in this area.
He feels the colors
After three years with Chivas, Vega's love for the Rojiblancos' colors is undeniable. Although he is a Toluca youth team player and has always shown his affection for the Diablos, it is with the Tapatíos with whom he has found a true connection.
In more than one goal in these tournaments that he has played with the team, Vega has kissed the shield as a sign of love, especially in the Clásicos Tapatíos against Atlas, in which he has played a decisive role.
He is a different player
Vega's style is to face the opponent from the flank in a one-on-one situation to get in front of the goalkeeper. In modern soccer, with more and more constant partnerships and fewer risks in attack, Vega's individual qualities stand out immediately.
With or without the ball he is a player who attracts marks, looks to dribble, and has shown increasingly better defensive sacrifice to help in the recovery phase, which is appreciated from the bench due to his position as a winger.
Due to the points mentioned above, Vega has become an idol for young and old alike, and all the Rojiblancos fans, better known as "chivahermanos", have shown their affection for him and do not want him to leave the team.
While they understand that the player wants to fulfill his professional dreams, they want the board of directors to exhaust all resources so that he can extend his contract for at least a couple of more years.
The club's main asset
After the sporting and sentimental, on the business side, Vega is the most expensive and profitable player on the team. According to Transfermarkt, the 24-year-old winger is worth US$8.11 million and beats players such as José Juan Macías and Roberto Alvarado.
Thus, the fact that he leaves in December could be a hard blow after the investment made in him in these three years, so the main objective is to convince him to stay in Guadalajara even if they have to improve economically some of the player's demands, who seems to be living one of his best moments.
