After playing for a whole year with Philadelphia Union, Marco Fabián will join Xavi's Al-Sadd in Qatar this season. The club announced the transfer on Monday on Twitter and he will be joining the team today in Doha for the medical and routine procedures each new player goes through.

The Mexican will be the fifth foreign player of Al-Sadd and he should be presented this week. In February 2018, Philadelphia signed Fabián on a Designated Player contract from Eintracht Frankfurt, with the midfielder managing to score seven goals in 23 games for the MLS team.

Fabián struggled with injuries throughout the 2019 MLS season, just like he did in his time at Frankfurt, and he only played 15 out of 34 games.
