Italy midfielder Marco Verratti has completed a move to Qatari side Al-Arabi from Paris St-Germain for a reported 45m euros (£38.7m).
He is the second high-profile European-based player to secure a deal to Qatar in a week.
Verratti won nine Ligue 1 titles with PSG after joining in 2012, while he also helped Italy win Euro 2020.
"I was very proud to wear the colours of Paris St-Germain for more than a decade, to rub shoulders with so many great players and to win 30 trophies," Verratti told the PSG website.
"Paris, the club and its supporters will always have a very special place in my heart. I will be Parisian forever."
Verratti becomes the latest European player to move to the Middle East, after many made the switch to the Saudi Pro League during the summer.
The 30-year-old's former PSG team-mate Neymar moved to Al-Hilal for £77.6m in August.
The Italian had been linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League, but no club was able to get a deal done by the 7 September transfer deadline.
