‘Back-up’ Bacca may get a shock

baccaWest Ham have virtually given up on Carlos Bacca!

The club believes they have been used as a bargaining chip by the AC Milan striker who at the same time appears to running out of options on his future.

Despite having a four year deal with AC Milan he has been excluded from the American tour with the Italians ready to take the £26m offered by the Irons.

RR LowSeville have filled up their foreign contigent and PSV – who were believed to be interested – are also set to snub the player.

West Ham – as a result are reviewing their options – with our top source telling us exclusively: “The reality is, I think, that we are being used as a back up club by Bacca.

“That’s not a good situation and should he come back having run out of other options there may be no deal at all or a reduced one as we are now reviewing other possibilities.

“There is no panic on any front. Everything should be in place by the end of the transfer window.”

  1. Go get Ben yedder and Eder martin , before inter and Lyon nab them ?
    Then concentrate on 2 full backs and a centre half , we need to get things moving and make some positive moves , I don’t buy the no panic on any front bit ,
    Get in first and offer a good deal , we can’t keep trying to get players on loan ,
    We got free money so spend some !

  2. Apparently he is looking forward to re unite with Emery at PSG. He is out of luck, because we should drop him, and PSG already have 4 non EU players, which means he is barred for now from playing for them.

    Let’s not talk about him anymore. He is really not interested in coming. Not worth it.

  3. He is more likely to sign if we actually start to seriously look and work towards signign someone else as we are likely to remain his best option until panic creeps in around the CL clubs in about 3 weeks, a time scale we simply can’t Countenance anyway. Leave the offer on the table for now but sign an alternative as soon as possible shutting him off as and when we do so. What we can’t do is leave it till into the season to buy a new striker, losing even 2 or 3 points early could be crucial, after all that total was last year.
