AC Milan forward Carlos Bacca is dreaming of playing in the Champions League, saying that he is considering his future to make it a reality.

Despite scoring 18 goals in his debut season in Serie A, Bacca was unable to help the Rossoneri achieve a top three finish with the side eventually finishing a distant seventh.

“My dream is to play in the Champions League and I work everyday to achieve this,” Bacca said at a Nike event in Bogota after the Copa America Centenario.

“I want to play in it with Milan, that’s why I came to Milan, but unfortunately we have not reached our goal.

“This is precisely one of the issues we are discussing with the club: we are not in Europe and I want to play in the Champions League.

“Everything will depend on the project this year, the new investors and which players will be arriving, the team that we have, then we’ll make a decision.  ”

Bacca has recently been attracting interest from English Premier League side West Ham, but the 30-year-old said his future was still yet to be decided.

“My future is in God’s hands, we all know that I have a contract with Milan for four years,” he said.

“There are offers from clubs from England, Spain, Italy, France and Germany, it is not easy to make a decision, we have time.

“My agent is talking to the interested clubs and also with Milan. ”

Finally, Bacca admitted he has not yet had contact with new Milan coach Vincenzo Montella.

“I have not spoken to him directly, the club know I’m on holiday and they are respecting that, they have talked to my agent,” he said.
