Bacca has been heavily linked with a Premier League move this summer, and it appeared Liverpool lead the race for the Colombian’s signature.
According to The Telegraph however, Manchester United has also signalled its interest in the 28-year-old who has a buyout clause of £21m.
Sevilla will only allow Bacca to leave should either club reach the player’s release clause, but it is unknown whether either Liverpool or Manchester United would be willing to pay such a fee for the former Club Brugge man.
According to the report, Liverpool are believed to have held talks with Sevilla over Bacca, but it remains to be seen if Brendan Rodgers retains his interest following the £29m capture of Hoffenheim forward Roberto Firmino.
United could make a move for Bacca should the club fail to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
Bacca has scored 34 league goals in 71 appearances since joining Sevilla in 2013.
