Sevilla sporting director Monchi has confirmed that Colombian striker Carlos Bacca is will leave the club if his a 30 million release clause is met.
The Sunday Telegraph confirmed that Liverpool FC were looking into signing the Colombian forward from Seville who had an impressive season, guiding the Spanish side to Europa League win with a 28 goal haul that also saw him becoming a part of the top five scorers in La Liga with 20 strikes.
The Sunday Telegraph reports says:
‘There is understood to be a a 30a million (A?21.4a million) release clause in Bacca’s contract, which Sevilla say has to be met, while Juventus may try to hold out for as much as a 20a million (A?14.3a million) for Llorente, but will probably let him go for less.’
‘Liverpool are determined to add to their strike-force and had targeted Benteke, having signed Danny Ings for a fee to be set by a tribunal but which could be A?5a million to A?7a million, although they will not bid anywhere near the Belgian international’s buy-out clause.’
‘As that interest has started to cool, possibly to see whether Villa lower their asking price, Liverpool are examining the possibility of signing either Llorente or Bacca.’
However, in a recent interview, Seville’s sporting director Monchi addressed the rumours that Roma have reached an agreement on personal terms with Carlos Bacca and then revealed that the player will leave if his release clause is met, which as per the report by the Sunday Telegraph is around a 30 million.
a Baccaa s contract includes obligations for the club and player, but if a club wants to pay his release clause, therea s little we can do.”
“I think hea ll continue with us because he wants to and so does Sevilla. We have no intention of selling him. If someone wants Bacca, they have to pay his clause. Hea s told us that ita s his desire to stay with the club and I dona t see any other possibility.a
Bacca is currently suspended for Colombia in the Copa America, where he was involved in the post game brawl with Neymar.
