will leave the Bundesliga champions for Guangzhou Evergrande in
China after the clubs agreed on an undisclosed fee for the

the Chinese club after winning consecutive league titles with
Dortmund, who have 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 in
