Bacca left out of AC Milan’s Europa League squad

Carlos Bacca has been left out of AC Milan’s Europa League squad which has led to an increase in the rumours that he is set to return to former club, Sevilla.

The Colombian striker originally signed for Sevilla in 2013 after an impressive 18 months in Belgium with Club Brugge.

Bacca was a member of the Sevilla side that won the Europa League in 2014 and 2015 playing a key role in both victories including scoring from the spot in the penalty shootout victory over Benfica in 2014 and then scoring two in the 2015 Final when Sevilla beat Dnipro 3-2.

In total he scored 49 goals in 108 appearances across all competitions for the club which led to some of Europe’s biggest clubs entering the race for his signature. AC Milan won that race and the player made the move to Serie A in the summer of 2015.

Throughout his time in Italy there has always been rumours about his departure despite the fact that his goal scoring record has been very good in his two seasons with the Italian giants.

Overall he has scored 34 goals in 76 appearances for Milan but that hasn’t been enough to convince Vincenzo Montella that he is worth keeping and the player will now look for a new club.

French giants, Marseille have also been linked with the Colombian along with Valencia but it is thought the player prefers a move back to Sevilla so he can play in the Champions League and it now remains to be seen whether the club can get a deal across the line in the coming weeks.
