According to Italian sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan representatives have travelled to Barranquilla, Colombia, where Bacca is currently on holiday, to oversee a medical.

Sevilla confirmed on Wednesday that AC Milan were prepared to pay Bacca's £21million buy-out clause to acquire the South American this summer.

Sevilla sporting director Monchi expects Bacca's future to be decided by the end of this week.

Monchi said on Sevilla's official website: "Carlos Bacca's future will be resolved in the next few days."

Portugal were always expected to test the European Championship favourites on Sunday but few could have foreseen the way the semi-final panned out.

Rui Jorge's side ran out 5-0 victors in Olomouc and afterwards Germany head coach Horst Hrubesch revealed his relief that the goals stopped there.

Liverpool midfielder Can was certainly guilty of under-performing at the Ander Stadium, leaving him to reflect on a "dark day for all of Germany".

"I talked a lot this tournament, big talk even," he said. "I wanted to win the title.

"I don't know why, but for some reason, I didn't show my best out there. If I am honest, it is just shameful.

"From the first minute onward we failed to find our rhythm," he continued in an interview with www.uefa.com.

"Our mentality also wasn't there - we just had everything missing tonight, but excuses and apologies are no help now."
