AC Milan coach Gattuso: I only want Bacca here if...

AC Milan coach Rino Gattuso has told Carlos Bacca he can leave if he wants to.

Bacca has declared a desire to return to Villarreal after last season's loan.

“I have no problem with him," Gattuso said after the Rossoneri's penalties defeat to Manchester United in the International Champions Cup.

“I've never coached him and he has a contract with Milan. Thirty-one will be at Milanello, where my staff are waiting for him.

“I know he wants to play in Spain again. There are rules to respect and [there must be] a desire to stay at the club.

“I won't force anyone to stay. When I come back to Italy, I'll talk to him and see. If he wants to stay then great, otherwise it's better if he leaves."
