Nigeria international Babatunde Michael has agreed to move to Qatari side Qatar SC, his Moroccan club Raja Casablanca have confirmed.
According to the Moroccan giants, they will earn $1.1m from the transfer, while Babatunde will pocket a whopping $2.1m as signing on fee once the deal goes through.
He flew out of the Eagles training camp in France on Saturday to return to Morocco in connection with the transfer.
Babatunde, 23, joined Raja in January after leaving Dnipro of Ukraine and has gone on to be a very influential figure for the ‘Greens’, helping them climb to third in the Moroccan Botola League, following a poor start to the season.
The left-footed forward was part of the Nigeria team who beat Mali 1-0 last Friday in a friendly in France, as he came off the bench to be involved in Kelechi Iheanacho’s winner.
