Bacca ‘dreams’ of playing for Barca

Carlos Bacca has conceded that he would love to play for Barcelona one day, admitting that a move to Camp Nou would be ‘a dream’.

The Sevilla striker scored twice on Wednesday as the Rojiblancos beat Real Madrid 2-1 to dent Los Blancos’ title hopes.

And after impressing in his first full season in Spain, the former Club Brugge forward revealed that he harbours an ambition to play for the Blaugrana.

“As a kid I dreamed of becoming a professional so I could face the best teams in the world. On Wednesday I had a new chance to face a great team like Madrid," he told La Xarxa.

“I've always liked Madrid as much as Barca, but I've always had an affinity for the game that Barca play, although I like that Madrid always play with a fixed No.9 or two central strikers.

“It would be a dream to be at a club as big as Barca, but one always has to live in reality. I'm with Sevilla, where I'm very happy and have a contract. What happens next is whatever God wills.”

Bacca also commented on Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona’s chances in the Champions League, with the quarter-finals kicking off next week.

“The favourites are Bayern, they are very strong and have a great Coach in Guardiola. But Barca are still Barca, Madrid are still Madrid, Atletico are playing well.

“Chelsea are getting stronger and stronger with [Jose] Mourinho, Paris Saint-Germain have reached the round with great players. It will be a very tight Champions League.”
