Mundo Deportivo, as well as other outlets like Ruhr Nachrichten report that a deal for Barcelona’s striker Paco Alcacer is almost done. BVB would loan the Spain international for one year with a option to buy. There are no indications what the loan fee and the option to buy will be at this point.
This certainly not the signing BVB-fans hoped for but at this point in the transfer market Alcacer would be a solid signing especially as a loan which leaves all options open for BVB for next summer.
Today Borussia Dortmund have presented their financial report for the last fiscal year (1st July 2017-30th June 2018). BVB had a new record turnover of 536€ million, 222€ million were generated because of transfers. Dortmund’s profit after taxes comes in at 28.5€ million. In addition the management will propose to the board of directors to pay a dividend of 0.06€ per share. The personnel expenses have increased from 177.9€ million to 186.7€ million.
Furthermore Watzke announced that ticker prices will not be increased except for the usual adaptation in case of inflation. An ambitious goal has also been set for the year 2025 when BVB want to have a turnover over 500€ million without transfer revenues.
