Bacca is on his way back to the Yellow Submarine

Villareal are close to signing Colombian striker Carlos Bacca as part of the deal that will see Samu Castillejo join AC Milan. Bacca spent last season on loan with the La Liga side and impressed during his stint by scoring 18 goals in 43 appearances.

The former Seville player is expected to sign a four-year deal with the Yellow Submarine even though AC Milan had reportedly made a deal with Sporting Lisbon to take Bacca on loan with an option to buy. The attacker moved to Milan from Seville in 2015 after the Colombia international scored 49 goals in 108 appearances for the La Liga side.
