The story between Boussoufa and Lokomotiv is coming to an end. The Moroccan midfielder hasn't been included in the squad for the Europa League and his departure from Cherkizovo is getting closer and closer.
Two days ago, the Al-Ittihad chairman Al Balawi stated that his club was close to sign a Moroccan midfielder from Europe. You don't have to be a genius to realize that the player involved was Boussoufa. Hour after hour, the rumors about a possible departure of Mbark to the UAE side became more and more.
Yesterday, Boussoufa and Al-Ittihad found an agreement, with the player that should earn around 2 millions per year. Today, he should have the medicals in a clinic in Dubai and then he should sign a two-year contract with an option to extend it. He will wear number 32 shirt.
Lokomotiv and Al-Ittihad have already found an agreement for the transfer fee and as a consequence the deal could be confirmed in the next hours.
Boussoufa will leave Lokomotiv after 39 matches, 5 goals, 10 assists, 1 Russian Cup and a bronze medal in the Russian League.
Thank you for everything, Mbark! Good luck in Al-Ittihad!
