Sampaoli: ‘It would be good to have Bacca back’

By Oliver Fisher -

Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has confirmed that the La Liga giants are interested in signing their former striker Carlos Bacca who moved to AC Milan for €30million in summer 2015.

The Colombian hit-man visited his old club’s training ground last week-end and went to the Sanchez Pizjuan to watch the Sevilla game against Valencia creating controversies among AC Milan fans.

Bacca was ruled out of last week-end’s AC Milan Serie A game against Empoli with a muscular injury and Vincenzo Montella allowed his striker to travel to Sevilla for the week-end. Montella’s explanation has not reduced the noise surrounding a possible transfer of Bacca to Sevilla in the January window and the statements of Jorge Sampaoli are not helping either.

AC Milan v FC Internazionale Milano - Serie A“It would be good to have him back at the club. I am an admirer of Bacca and he’s on very good terms with everybody here. Signing him would be very good for the team, but it’s difficult to persuade AC Milan.

“When I met him last week he told me that he’s going through tough times at AC Milan, but there are many obstacles to sign him. First of all, he’s a non-EU player and AC Mlan don’t want to sell him, let’s see what we can do in the future if we want to bring him back here.”
