Ghana captain Andre Ayew has agreed to join Qatari giants Al Sadd.
The club — which is coached by football legend Xavi — made the shocking announcement some few hours ago.
“AlSadd have reached an agreement to sign Ghanaian star Andre Ayew. The player will arrive in Doha in the morning to complete the routine procedures, followed by the signing of the contract and the official announcement,” the official Twitter handle of Al Sadd tweeted the move.
According to multiple reports, the former Swansea star could earn about $200,000 per week when he signs the contract in Doha on Thursday.
Ayew, who was arguably Swansea’s best players in the past two season, decided to not renew his contract with the Welsh side following their failure to get promoted to the premier league.
He finished the 2020/2021 season as top scorer of the club, scoring 17 goals in 46 appearances for Swansea City.
