Paco Alcacer left Barcelona for Borussia Dortmund in 2018. He was an instant hit with the Borussia fans scoring 18 goals in 26 Bundesliga appearances in his debut season. But he struggled with injuries this season and along with that the incredible form of recent signing Haaland has sent Alcacer down the pecking order.
Dortmund have now allowed the former Barcelona striker to return to LaLiga. Villarreal announced the signing of Alcacer on Thursday. The 26-year-old striker signed a five-and-a-half-year deal and reportedly commanding a club-record fee of €23million.
Alcacer began his career at Valencia, where he played 124 games, scoring 43 goals. From there he went to Barcelona, where he played 50 games and scored 15 goals before his move to Germany.
He enjoyed the best scoring spell of his career at Borussia Dortmund, playing 47 matches and scoring 26 goals. He will now hope to continue his recent form with the Yellow Submarines as well.
Villarreal are 8th in LaLiga and have also booked a place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.
