Louis van Gaal sets sight on La Liga striker

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca this summer, the Colombian marksman who is valued at around £15 million. Louis van Gaal is on the lookout for a new talisman to strengthen his Red Devils squad next season with Radamel Falcao set to leave Old Trafford at the end of his loan deal. There are also some doubts about Robin van Persie's long-term future at the Theatre of Dreams, and Bacca's arrival could see the Dutchman depart when the transfer window reopens. Arsenal and Liverpool have both been mooted as admirers of Bacca as well, but it's Manchester United that are regarded as favourites to secure his signature. The 28-year-old has been in impressive form for Sevilla this term, netting 21 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions, and would certainly provide Van Gaal with another useful attacking option.
