AC Milan striker, Carlos Bacca has stated emphatically he will not be leaving the club until they’re back amongst Europe’s elite.
The former Sevilla striker has been continually linked with a move away from San Siro. And he claimed clubs from England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France were looking to sign him.
Bacca also stressed his desire to play champions league football, when West Ham came calling.
But the 29-year-old looks set to remain with Milan, despite Vincenzo Montella’s side having failed to qualify for European competition last season.
“A lot has been said, clubs being interested in me or making offers for me,” Bacca told Milan TV.
“The truth is that I had not taken any decision. I’m happy here with the group, working and trying to prepare myself for the first game in the best way I can.
“I’m very confident for the upcoming season, with a coach who likes to play with the ball and play with purpose. I like that, because this way I could get two or three chances a game.
“Europe? It’s one of the reasons I came, because I thought I was going to a team that could play in the Champions League.
“But then I think about it with a cool head, and when I decided to leave Sevilla it was because I wanted to bring Milan back to the top and I won’t leave until I’ve done that.
“I’m an ambitious player. I couldn’t reach the Champions League in my first year, but I hope to experience it soon. I’m glad I stayed at Milan and I like playing in a team like this.”
