Carlos Bacca confirms interest

29-year-old AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca today spoke extensively about the interest being shown in him from all over Europe.

West Ham United have had a bid accepted by AC Milan but recent reports suggested the Hammers were unable to agree terms with the South American star.

“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.

West Ham’s hopes of landing Bacca in tatters

Having played for Sevilla in the Europa League, Carlos Bacca made it clear of his desire to play Champions League football.

Slaven Bilic’s West Ham side only managed to secure Europa League football for next season and seemingly don’t have the pull necessary to bring Bacca to London.

“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 said.

“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.”

So West Ham ain’t landing their man.
