Borussia Dortmund's Lucas Barrios will leave the Bundesliga champion for Guangzhou Evergrande after the clubs agreed on an undisclosed fee for the 27-year-old striker, the German side said yesterday.
The Paraguay international has signed a four-year deal with the Chinese Super League club after winning consecutive league titles with Dortmund, which has already clinched this season's championship ahead of Saturday's final round.
"Lucas Barrios won two Bundesliga titles with us and in 82 league games scored 39 goals... so that is why we met his wish to change clubs and play first team football," Dortmund said.
