Barcelona have confirmed they have agreed a loan deal with Borussia Dortmund for striker Paco Alcacer.

The Bundesliga side will pay a loan fee of €2 million and have the option to sign Alcacer permanently for €23m plus €5m in variables.

Interestingly Barcelona also “retain the right to refuse that option” and will get 5% of “any future profit” if Dortmund sell him on.

Alcacer looks to have moved in an attempt to avoid another season spent largely on the bench. He seems pretty happy with the switch.

“I’m really looking forward to playing in the Bundesliga soon. This is one of the best leagues in the world, and BVB with these incredible fans and the famous South Stand probably has something magical for every footballer,” he said.
