Bacca agent hints at summer transfer

The 28-year-old played a pivotal role in helping Sevilla retain their Europa League crown this season, as well as adding a further 20 goals in 37 appearances.

But the Colombia internationals future has come into question as of late, with Manchester United reportedly one of the frontrunners to seal his signature.

Bacca’s agent has spoken out concerning the rumours surrounding his client, admitting that a move to another supposed suitor – Roma – could interest him.

Sergio Barila told??Corriere dello Sport: “Carlos is deeply religious and, in Rome, there is the pope ??? and apart from that we are talking about one of the best clubs [Roma].

“If Bacca were to leave Sevilla, it will not be for the money but a chance to play in the Champions League. We’ve already said no to lucrative offers out of China and the United Arab Emirates.

“Bacca is now totally focused on doing well with Colombia at the Copa America and is fine with, and grateful to, Sevilla, who helped him to be recognised at the international level.

“However, the market is unpredictable. We’ll have a meeting with Sevilla after the tournament and look at what’s on the table.”

Harry Kane also remains a target for United up front according to Sky Sports, while links to goalkeepers Jesper Cillessen, Jan Oblak and Samir Handanovic have surfaced with David De Gea’s future still uncertain.
