Carlos Bacca: Provides update on future

AC Milan and Colombia striker Carlos Bacca has said his representative is in talks with many clubs and is in no rush to force a move.

The 29-year-old, who scored 18 goals in 34 games for the Serie A giants last season, is thought to be on West Ham’s radar with reports suggesting a fee has been agreed.

However, the Hammers do not appear to be the only club interested in securing his services after he revealed that he is attracting interest from all over Europe.

“My future’s in God’s hands. Everyone knows I have a four-year contract with Milan,” he told AS.

“There are offers and there’s interest from clubs in England, Spain, Italy, France and Germany. It’s not easy to make a decision.

“We have time, we’re calm. My representative is speaking with clubs and with Milan.”

One concerning factor for West Ham is Bacca’s wish to play Champions League football, but he is open to stay with Milan if the new owners can convince him to stay.

“It’s my dream to play in the Champions League and I work every day for that. I want to play in it with Milan, but unfortunately we won’t be doing so,” he added.

“It’s one of the subjects I’m talking about with Milan – that we’re not in Europe and I want to play in the Champions League.”

“It depends on Milan’s project this year, on the new investors and the players that arrive. Then we’ll make decisions.”
