Report: Guirassy almost twice as expensive as first thought

Serhou Guirassy is not as cheap a signing for Borussia Dortmund as it might look on paper.

 

Borussia Dortmund are set to complete the signing of Serhou Guirassy from VfB Stuttgart, with the striker arriving to complete the move.

The Black and Yellows have triggered an 18 million release clause in Guirassy's contract with Stuttgart in order to sign him. In reality, however, he's likely to cost a lot more than that.

That's according to Sport Bild, who reports that Dortmund will pay an additional €15 million to bring the forward to the Signal Iduna Park.

Guirassy will receive €10 million of that as a sign-on fee, while consultants involved in the deal will receive €5 million.

The 28-year-old was in excellent form for Stuttgart last season, scoring 28 goals in 28 Bundesliga games, and Dortmund will be hoping for more of the same from the striker.
