Carlos Bacca

According to reports from Fichajes, Bayern Munich are considering a summer transfer swoop for Chelsea and Manchester United strike target Carlos Bacca. 

The Colombian international moved to the San Siro only last summer after claiming back-to-back Europa League titles with Sevilla but his potent form since has attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.

Indeed, only Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain has bettered Bacca’s Serie A return of 13 goals this season and he really turned on the style in the Coppa Italia last month, producing a Rabona-style finish during a 2-1 win over Carpi.

Chelsea and Manchester United were both linked with the 29-year-old during the January transfer window and it has since been revealed that an unnamed club saw a £47million bid rejected by Rossoneri.

Recent reports from The Express suggest the duo could revive their interest at the end of the season but it appears they could face considerable competition for Bacca’s signature from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani revealed earlier this week that the South American would have probably moved to Real Madrid last summer if Carlo Ancelotti wasn’t sacked by the La Liga giants and Fichajes have followed up by claiming the Bayern-Munich-bound Italian is now targeting Bacca as a potential replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

Recent reports have suggested the Poland international could move to the Bernabeu at the end of the season.
