Carlos Bacca is waiting on Villarreal to make a deal with Milan over a permanent deal, but has the impasse let another team into the mix?

Villarreal had a option in place to buy Bacca for €15 million at the end of the loan, but they reportedly have only offered €8 million, with Milan holding out for €13 million. It’s also been reported that another La Liga team might also be interested in Bacca, but the identity of that third team is not known at this time (although, seriously, it’s probably Valencia) and this might get Villarreal to improve their offer for the Colombia international striker.

Either way, Bacca’s time at the San Siro is done.
