La Liga’s 4th highest goal scorer, Sevilla’s Carlos Bacca has expressed doubts over his future at the UEFA Cup finalists’ side. The Colombian told the press few days before what seemed like his final La Liga appearance for the club,
‘We know that Sevilla are a selling club and we have to bear that in mind .But I am happy here and I am one hundred percent focused on what remains this season. Everything is in the hands of the directors and the coaching staff, whether or not they count on me [for next season].’
This comes at a time when the 28 year-old forward, who has scored 26 goals across all competitions this season for the side is being linked with a move to the EPL. With Chelsea and Manchester United the favorites to clinch his signature. Sevilla are poised to sell him for 18 million pounds. And Chelsea could come up with a bid to beat Manchester United to the offer. If a Stamford bridge move works out, the South American will be linking up with fellow countryman, Cuadrado, who hasn’t found his feet at the club yet. Both were in sparkling form at the last world cup where they lost to host, Brazil in the round of 8. They however shared an understanding on the pitch, and the same might be rekindled if they play for Chelsea together.
Chelsea have been in search of a forward as the transfer market window approaches, and Carlos Bacca will fit into the other forward roles at the Stamford bridge. But as it seems at the moment, the Europa League final on May 27 is definitely going to be his last match for Sevilla, who he has appeared 71 times for since 2013 and scored 31 goals.
