Manchester United Transfer News: Carlos Bacca 'Hijack' Eyed Amid Chelsea Rumours

Manchester United Transfer News: Carlos Bacca 'Hijack' Eyed Amid Chelsea RumoursManchester United are reportedly hoping to beat Premier League rivals Chelsea to the signing of Milan striker Carlos Bacca, but competition from Atletico Madrid could pose a major obstacle to both English outfits.

Spanish magazine Don Balon alleged the Blues have a £30 million bid in the pipeline for the Colombia international, but interest from the Red Devils could squash their pursuit
United manager Louis van Gaal is currently leaning on Anthony Martial and captain Wayne Rooney to provide firepower up front, while Marouane Fellaini has been utilised as an alternative centre-forward on occasion.

Bacca has 10 goals in 22 total appearances for the Rossoneri this season, but his record is all the more impressive when considering he's currently one of the most clinical assets in Italy's top flight, per WhoScored.com:
Attacking reinforcements are thought to be a major concern at Old Trafford, and Manchester United broke this season's mould during Tuesday's 3-3 draw at Newcastle United.

Van Gaal's men had failed to score in four of their 10 matches prior to that midweek clash, where Rooney managed a brace and brought his tally to three goals in his last two Premier League outings.
