Milan confirm they won’t take Carlos Bacca to the USA but insist it’s “not for reasons related to the transfer market”.
The Rossoneri have agreed a fee with West Ham United for the striker, but he’s not keen to move to the Hammers and was expecting to join his teammates for the pre-season tour of America.
However, following reports this morning that he would be left in Italy, the club has confirmed as much on their official website.
“Milan have decided, at the request of Coach Vincenzo Montella, to apply to Carlos Bacca - who arrived in Milan on Thursday - and Mattia De Sciglio - arriving Thursday July 28 - the same criteria as used for Gianluca Lapadula and Leonel Vangioni.
“For that reason, Bacca and De Sciglio will do all their preparations at Milanello, having been left out - for these reasons and not for reasons related to the transfer market - of the list of players for the International Champions Cup for which Milan is expected in the USA.”
