Nene leaves Paris Saint-Germain for Al Gharafa

The playmaker has left les Parisiens after finding first team opportunities hard to come by following the arrival of a number of high profile players in the capital
Nene has completed his move from Paris Saint-Germain to Qatari club Al Gharafa on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The former Monaco attacker has been out of favour for much of the season, despite scoring 21 goals in Ligue 1 in 2011/12 and has been linked with a number of clubs after previously revealing his desire to depart the capital club.

Al Gharafa's general secretary Jassem Al-Mansouri revealed the deal had been conclued and the length of the contract, though he did not disclose the former Brazil Under-23 international's salary.

However, a reliable source revealed to AFP that the 31-year-old will earn around €4.5million a year.
