Paco Alcacer joins Dortmund on loan after Barcelona struggles
Barcelona striker Paco Alcácer has left on loan to Borussia Dortmund for a season, at the end of which the German club will have the option of signing him for up to 28 million euros.
“The German club will pay FC Barcelona 2 million euros for the year of assignment and will take charge of the player’s chip,” the Spanish team said in a statement on Tuesday.
Borussia Dortmund reserves a call option for €23 million plus €5 million in variables, while FC Barcelona retains the right to reject the offer.
FC Barcelona will also have 5 percent of the added value of a possible sale of the player by Borussia Dortmund to a third team.
Alcácer, who turns 25 this Thursday, arrived in Barcelona from Valencia in 2016 but failed to win a place in the starting line-up, where Luis Suárez has been the leading striker.
The Spaniard has scored 15 goals in 50 games in two seasons in which Barcelona have won La Liga (2017-2018), two King’s Cups, and one Spanish Super Cup.
