Carlos Bacca transfer only available for release clause - Sevilla director
Any club interested in Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca will have to pay a reported £21.5 million release clause, according to club director Ramon Monchi.
Bacca, 28, has been linked with a summer transfer after scoring 20 La Liga goals last season, with Liverpool reportedly interested in his services.
However, Sevilla are determined to keep hold of the Colombia international, who signed for them from Club Brugge in 2013.

Sevilla striker Bacca, 28, has been linked with a summer transfer, with Liverpool allegedly keen on his signature, but director Ramon Monchi has warned only paying a reported £21.5 million release clause will pave the way for a deal.
Monchi said in the Daily Mail: "If someone wants Bacca, they have to pay his clause. He's told us that it's his desire to stay with the club and I don't see any other possibility.
"Bacca's contract includes obligations for the club and the player, but if a club wants to pay his clause, there's nothing we can do about that.
"I really think he'll stay here because the player and Sevilla want it so. We have no intention of selling him."
