SR 7 Million for Saudi Striker El-Doussary
The price for Al-Wehda striker Ubeid Al-Doussary is SR 7 million ($1.9 million ).
Al-Sharq Al-Awsat daily reports that the high price tag caused Al-Ahli Club from Jeddah and Al-Helal Club from Riyadh to withdraw their proposals. Both clubs had offered SR 5 million.
El-Doussary, 26, who is playing his last season with Al-Wehda, is also interested in joining the highest bidder. The Saudi striker scored 20 goals last year and was ranked as the best player not only in Saudi Arabia but also in the Asian continent. His playing won him the "Golden Shoe" title last year following a referendum in the Arab World.
