Carlos Bacca looks set to return to La Liga after two years as an agreement with Villarreal is imminent.
It has been known for weeks that Bacca is not in the plans of Vincenzo Montella and the Colombian was not included in the squad for the Europa League playoff.
Bacca also hasn’t been involved in all training sessions recently and today he arrived to Milanello four hours after the rest of the players. He left the training center shortly after arriving and his exit appears to be close: he’ll go to Villarreal.
Carlos had his heart set on a return to Sevilla, from which he arrived at Milan in 2015 for €30m but Los Rojiblancos are only willing to take Bacca on loan with option to buy, which the Diavolo don’t agree to. Villarreal, meanwhile, are offering a loan with a €17-18m obligation to buy next summer.
According to Milannews.it, Sky Italia and Alfredo Pedullà, the deal seems like just a matter of time. Bacca scored 34 goals in 74 appearances in the Milan jersey. His exit makes room for a new striker.
