The initial transfer fee is €30million, with €2million in variables. The player has signed a five year contract, with a buy-out of a €100million.

After several reports suggested that the player had already gone through his medical, the news comes as little surprise to the fans, who have waited all summer for the elusive fourth forward after several key targets chose to move to other clubs, not expecting to get any minutes, behind the power-house that is MSN.
Alcacer, however, has made his choice, and this ends Barça's summer on a high!
Boy, what a summer it's been!!!
