Fans’ view: Would you be happy with Carlos Bacca at Manchester United?

Fans’ view: Would you be happy with Carlos Bacca at Manchester United?

Carlos Bacca scored twice on Wednesday night as Sevilla won their fourth Europa League title.

It was a remarkable story for the Colombian, who has enjoyed a heartwarming turnaround in fortunes after working as a bus driver’s assistant eight years ago in order to support his family.

There have been murmurs that Manchester United are interested in signing Bacca this season and the speculation will undoubtedly intensify after his superb display.

We asked our Twitter followers if they would be happy if Man United signed him:

The large majority of fans seem to be agreed that Bacca isn’t quite good enough for United.

Although the 29-year-old has a superb goalscoring record, there are question marks over the other aspects of his game.

In many ways, his style of play is similar to Javier Hernandez, who recently returned to Old Trafford following a loan spell at Real Madrid. The Mexican is a natural born goalscorer but hasn’t quite shown that he can offer the team more than that.
