West Ham’s Bacca bid stalls as La Liga duo poised to pounce 

West Ham’s bid for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca has stalled, paving the way for the Columbian to make a move back to La Liga.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the strikers proposed move to West Ham United has stalled due to the strikers wage demands, which has left the door open for La Liga clubs, Atletico Madrid and Valencia, to secure a deal.

The Hammers made a £26million bid for the striker last week and has been expected to complete a move to the Peemier League, until he discovered a ‘significant discrepancy’ between his wage demands and what had been offered by West Ham. The striker is demanding €5million-a-year, but West Ham have currently only offered the striker €4million.

This leaves the door open for the striker to return to Spain, despite being AC Milan’s top scorer last season. Atletico Madrid and Valencia are both keen on signing the striker with the Champions League finalists are currently in pole position.
