According to news coming from the British newspaper The Daily Express, AC Milan rejected a bid in the region of £46.5 million to for the services of striker Carlos Bacca.
However, while they chose to retain him in January, the 29-year-old could still be on the move in the upcoming summer transfer window.
At 29-years of age, Bacca has attracted a lot of interest from top European Giants in the past.
Real Madrid and Chelsea are believed to be the long term admirers of the striker who joined the Serie A outfit in the summer of 2015 from Spanish club Sevilla.
Milan paid a mammoth transfer fee of 30 million Euros last summer and would surely look to at least recoup that amount for Bacca.
Although he was consistently scoring goals for his former club, many AC Milan fans were skeptical of his price tag. One of the main reasons of their skepticism was the age of the Colombian who was 28 when he joined the San Siro giants.
Since putting on the Milan jersey, however, Bacca has silenced his doubters finding the back of the net 13 times in just 25 Serie A appearances for the club.
Despite the fact that he will turn 30 this September, Bacca is in some of the best form of his career.
As is so often the case however, he may not be in a Milan shirt for much longer – especially given Milan’s position in Serie A at the moment
Sitting 6th in the table, AC Milan are already out of the title race.
More pressing for the Milanese club is a potential failure to qualify for Europe next Season – a scenario that is not all too far-fetched which would surely mean Bacca would leave for greener pastures in the summer.
