Patrik Schick has officially left Roma and joined RB Leipzig. The Czech attacker departs the Giallorossi after two seasons and having scored 8 goals for the club. Schick, who remains the most expensive signing in Roma’s history, was not in the plans of Paulo Fonseca and has been replaced by Nikola Kalinic. Here is the full announcement:
Roma can confirm that forward Patrik Schick has joined RB Leipzig on a season-long loan deal. Schick joins the Bundesliga club until 30 June 2020, for a fixed fee of €3.5 million. A further €500,000 in performance-related payments could also be made, depending on certain targets being met by both the player and the German club. As part of the overall agreement, should Leipzig qualify for the 2020-2021 UEFA Champions League they will have the option to make the transfer permanent – for a set fee of €29 million.
The Czech Republic international, 23, joined Roma in the summer of 2017. He went on to make 57 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring eight goals. The club would like to wish Patrik the best of luck for his time in Germany.
