Bacca to Bayern? An Unlikely Transfer

There are multiple reports that Bayern Munich are looking into the possible transfer of Carlos Bacca. While Bayern have quite a strong team, they lack any 'pure' strikers as backup for Robert Lewandowski, who is linked with a potential move to Real Madrid. Reports suggest that Bayern will be sending scouts of theirs to Italy in the next few weeks to observe the Colombian.

Bacca arrived from Spanish side Sevilla to large expectations. He was brought into the fold to revitalize the struggling Rossoneri, and has done so quite admirably, helping them to a date with Juventus in the Coppa Italia final. Bacca is the top goalscorer for Milan this season, having found the back of the net 14 times in the Serie A and twice in the Coppa Italia, and has been a consistent bright spot in a tumultuous season. Bayern are apparently lining up an offer of 30 million euros for a four-year contract. Milan, meanwhile, have set their price at 35 million.

Unless the speculation surrounding Lewandowski is true and he does leave for Real Madrid (or elsewhere), having a 29-year-old as a backup striker for a fee of 30 million euros seems quite strange. Bacca would unlikely want to be a benchwarmer after an immensely successful first season for the Rossoneri. The team over at Bavarian Football Works certainly don't seem keen on it, it's dubious Milan fans would welcome the move either.
