Ghana captain Andre Ayew is set to complete a shock move to Qatari giants Al Sadd.

The 31-year-old is expected to put pen on a three-year deal on Thursday, having become a free agent following his departure from English Championship fold Swansea City in June.

According to media reports, the attacker will be paid around $220,000 [€186,514.39] a month by the Asian club, who are coached by Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez.

This means that Ayew will pocket about $10 million every year with added bonuses that come with performance and appearances.

It is also worthy of note that his salary will not be subject to taxes in the Arab country, making him one of the highest earning African footballers.
