OFFICIAL: Villarreal sign Milan star


Villarreal have announced the signing of striker Carlos Bacca from Milan on loan with an option to buy.

The deal was confirmed in a video tweeted by Villarreal’s official account, which saw Bacca unveiled as their new No 9.

It appears to verify reports that the La Liga side have paid €2.5m to loan the Colombian for the season and can purchase him for €15.5m next summer.


A statement on the Yellow Submarine’s official website adds Bacca will be unveiled on Thursday evening.

Bacca joined Milan from Sevilla in 2015 and scored 34 goals in 78 appearances for the Rossoneri but fell out with Coach Vincenzo Montella last season.
