Oh, Carlos, why did you turn down the offer.

Milan striker Carlos Bacca, who appears to have been disowned by the official Milan Twitter account, reportedly rejected a move to Turkey with Trabzonspor.

Bacca spent last year on loan with Villarreal, but the La Liga club isn’t willing or able to match the price that Milan want for Bacca, meaning that the Colombian striker, who missed a penalty in Colombia’s loss on penalty kicks to England, is still a Milan player, although it appears that both he and the club want him to move on.

In a perfect world, a La Liga club would spring for him, but with a complicated deal that may involve Valencia and Atletico Madrid for another unwanted Milan forward, Nikola Kalinic, Bacca may not find his way back to Spain.

Time will tell what exactly will happen, but don’t expect to see Bacca wearing a Milan shirt when the season starts.
