Paco Alcácer is on the verge of completing his loan move to Borussia Dortmund, multiple reports say. Mundo Deportivo writes that “there is an agreement between FC Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund and the Valencian striker will be traveling between today and tomorrow.” RAC1 says that there are only a few details left to hammer out and the player could be on the move in a few hours.
There will be a buy option, and both MD and the German outlet Bild report that Dortmund will pay 2.2 million euros as a loan fee. The buy option is reported to cost around 20 and 25 million. After his move to Betis fell through, Alcácer is said to be excited to play in the Champions League, especially since Dortmund’s coach, Lucien Favre, had pushed strongly for his arrival. Barcelona will save on his wages and earn some money in the process, and the player will have two years left on his contract after the completion of the one-year loan.
