Paco Alcacer finally finds home at Borussia Dortmund
Paco Alcacer finally finds home at Borussia Dortmund. Barcelona loanee signed a permanent deal with the German club to extend his stay at Dortmund until 30 June 2023. He was offered on loan to The Black & Yellow brigade in the summer and considering his good form, Die Borussen activated the fixed price clause in the agreement for the permanent move.
Dortmund paid €23 million to FC Barcelona to acquire his services permanently ending the loan deal. It’s a fair business for Dortmund considering Alcacer form. He has scored nine goals for the Bundesliga leader playing only 303 minutes of the game. He has scored a goal every 44th minute for the BVB.
BVB sporting director Michael Zorc offered the good news to the club fans by revealing it to the club official site. He said, “We have informed FC Barcelona today that we will pull the call option. Paco is whole heartedly with us, he has quickly integrated and has become an integral part of our squad. He is a real scorer of high footballing quality, which is already some important games he decided for us. We look forward to many more goals and assists from Paco in the coming years.”
Paco also feels happy about his permanent deal. He said, “I am very happy in Dortmund, at BVB and in this wonderful team. Borussia Dortmund was and is exactly the right decision for me. I’ll do everything I can to say thank you for your trust and performance!”
Former Valencia captain didn’t enjoyed a very good time during his €30 million move to Barcelona in 2016. His playing time was limited there in already established Barcelona side and he was forced to sit on the substitution bench most of the time. But, he got his confidence back during his loan switch to Borussia Dortmund, scoring 9 goals in 8 games. His hard work paid and he earned a permanent stay with the Bundesliga leader. It’s expected that Dortmund will win Bundesliga this time and he’s going to be their leading goal scorer.
