According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sky Sport, and several other outlets, Borussia Dortmund has finally reached an agreement with Juventus and Torino on the sale of Ciro Immobile. Dortmund will pay 19.4 million euros – roughly 26.3 million dollars – for Immobile, who has agreed on a five year contract paying around two million euros a season.
As this is a co-ownership, Juve and Torino split the money. So, Juve will receive around 9.7 million euros – 13.1 million dollars – for their half of Immobile. That’s slightly less than they paid for Tevez, and slightly less than they received for Alessandro Matri. Both deals were around 12 million euros.
It’s not a great deal for Juventus, but Dortmund just got themselves a proven striker – at least in the league – for under 20 million euros. Now Immobile will have a chance to play in Champions League, and for a “big” European side. It seems that, if anything, Immobile is the winner here.
