Colombian striker Carlos Bacca will according to his agent Sergio Barila say no to Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham despite their best offers to try and lure him into playing in the Premiership.

The striker has been on fire last season for La Liga side Sevilla scoring 28-goals which gained him the interest of some of England’s top clubs.

His agent however says he is not motivated by financial concerns, but could be open to playing in the Champions League with Italian side AS Roma.

His agent pointed out that religion could play a major part in any move if it were to come about.

‘Carlos is deeply religious. And in Rome, there is the pope. And apart from that we are talking about one of the best clubs [Roma],’ Barila told Corriere dello Sport.

‘If Bacca were to leave Sevilla, it will not be for the money, but a chance to play in the Champions League.’

The 28-year-old Colombian moved to Sevilla from Belgium outfit Club Brugge in 2013 where he has found the Spanish league to his liking scoring 49 goals in 108 matches.

Bacca’s agent meanwhile insists his client is happy in Spain but will look at his options once the Copa America is over.

‘Bacca is now totally focused on doing well with Colombia at the Copa America and is fine with, and grateful to, Sevilla, who helped him to be recognised at the international level.

‘However, the market is unpredictable. We’ll have a meeting with Sevilla after the tournament and look at what’s on the table.’
