FC Barcelona forward Alcacer joins Dortmund on loan

Barcelona, Aug 29: FC Barcelona forward Paco Alcacer has joined Borussia Dortmund on loan for the 2018/2019 football season for some two million euros ($2.3 million) plus the players wages.

The La Liga defending champions explained in a statement on Tuesday that the German club will have a purchase option at the end of the Spanish strikers contract for 23 million euros ($27 million), plus five million euros ($5.85 million) in variables. But Barelona reserve the right to refuse that option, reports Efe.

Barcelona will retain five per cent of any future profit from the sale of the player by Borussia Dortmund to a third party, the Spanish club added on its official website.

Alcacer, who moved to Barcelona from Valencia for 30 million euros in the summer of 2016, leaves the Catalan club after appearing in 50 games in different competitions and scoring 15 goals.

During his career at Barcelona, the 24-year-old forward claimed two titles of the Copa del Rey, one La Liga trophy and the Spanish Super Cup.

Alcacer is the 11th player to leave Barcelona this summer after the departure of captain Andres Iniesta (Vissel Kobe), Gerard Deulofeu (Watford), Paulinho (Guangzhou Evergrande), Douglas (Sivasspor), Adrian Ortola Vao (RC Deportivo), Lucas Digne (Everton), Aleix Vidal (Sevilla), Andre Gomes (Everton), Yerry Mina (Everton) and Marlon Santos (Sassuolo Calcio).
