Villarreal have confirmed the signing of Carlos Bacca on a season-long loan from AC Milan.
Carlos Bacca completed his move back to LaLiga, where he previously starred with Sevilla, on Wednesday.
Forward Bacca will then be presented to fans and the media by Villarreal on Thursday.
Villarreal have given Bacca the number nine shirt at Estadio de la Ceramica.
“I want to thank God for giving me the opportunity to arrive to a great club like Villarreal,” Bacca said in a video on Villarreal’s official Twitter to confirm the deal. “I want to send a special salute to all the club fans.”
Villarreal were looking to strengthen their attack following the sale of Roberto Soldado to Fenerbahce last week.
“Any club that has been in the market for a player to score goals, of course they have monitored Bacca,” Barila added. “He has been lucky to receive many offers this summer but he made it very clear to which club and which league he wanted to play in.
“He wants to go to a club that will count strongly on him. He wants to have a good season and arrive at the World Cup in Russia in the best possible way. Now we just hope that his future can be resolved as soon as possible.”
