Sanabria leaves Roma for Betis in €7.5 million deal

The young Paraguay international returns to Spain after enjoying a prolific spell on loan with Sporting Gijon, while the Italians will have the right to buy the star back.

Real Betis has secured the services of Antonio Sanabria from Roma for a transfer fee of 7.5 million euro ($8.3 million), with the 20-year-old signing a five-year deal for his new club.

Roma will also receive 50 percent of any future transfer fee should Betis sell the Paraguay international, while the Serie A side have also included a buy-back clause, which allows them to re-sign the striker for €11 million ($12.2 million) in the first two seasons and €14.5 million ($16 million) during the third.

Sanabria joined Roma from Sassuolo in August 2014 after a previous spell with Barcelona, but the promising attacker failed to secure regular first-team action at the Stadio Olimpico.

He made just two appearances for Roma in 2014-15 and was sent out on loan to Sporting Gijon last term, where he scored 11 goals in 29 LaLiga appearances.
