Chicago Fire to buy striker Robert Beric from St Étienne for €2m

Slovenian international attacker Robert Beric was given authorisation by Ligue 1 club St Étienne to travel to the United States today ahead of a move to MLS side Chicago Fire, according to L’Équipe.

The 28-year-old held a farewell party last night in a local St Étienne pizzeria and will join the Fire for €2m including bonuses.

Beric was bought from Rapid Vienna for €6.25m in August 2015, but his departure will enable ASSE to considerably shrink their monthly salary costs, to the tune of €100k a month.
