He missed the 4-0 win over Bayern Munich, and he will be absent from Milan’s Europa League game on Thursday as well, against Romanian side CSU Craiova.
There is a feeling that Carlos Bacca’s days at the club are numbered, and everything Vincenzo Montella told reporters only intensified that feeling.
I didn’t play him because he won’t play on Thursday
the Milan coach told reporters, when asked why the Colombia international didn’t feature against Bayern.
We did it in harmony, but it’s clear that the choice is also due to future transfer market moves
the Italian coach then said, practically announcing that Milan are negotiating a deal over Bacca with at least one interested club.
The Colombian striker moved to Italy in 2015 from Sevilla, and in these last two seasons he scored 31 goals for Milan in the Serie A alone.
Impressive changes are taking place at the club these last weeks, new management, many new players, and Bacca for some reason is not considered integral part of the new project that Milan have started working on.
News about where he will be playing next season should appear within the next couple of days.
