Carlos Bacca's agent hints Sevilla striker could leave in summer

BY foxsports • June 15, 2015

The agent of reported Manchester United target Carlos Bacca has said the striker could conceivably move in an "unpredictable" summer transfer market.

The 28-year-old striker 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 international's future has come into question lately, with Manchester United reportedly one of the frontrunners to seal his signature.

Bacca's agent has spoken out concerning the rumors surrounding his client, admitting that a move to another supposed suitor - Roma - could be of interest.

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 from 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 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."
