Barcelona confirm Alcacer’s permanent departure as imminent

Barcelona have confirmed that they’ve been informed by Borussia Dortmund of the German club’s wish to keep Paco Alcacer on a permanent basis, according to Sport.

The striker scored his fifth goal against Stuttgart on Saturday in the eight matches played for Dortmund, and has been putting in impressive performances since moving to Germany on loan at the very end of the summer transfer window. So much so that the 1997 Champions League winners decided to make the move permanent. For Barcelona, he had made 50 appearances and found the opposition net 15 times over two seasons.

German publication Bild had reported Dortmund’s intentions a while back, but they’ve apparently been confirmed now as true by the Catalan club.

The initial loan fee was set at €2million, and the activation of the option of making the signing permanent will cost Dortmund a further €23million plus a potential sum of €5million in add-ons, making the fee a total of €30million.
