EPL: Saudi Arabia striker, Mohammed Al-Sahlawi to join Manchester United
Saudi Arabia striker, Mohammad Al-Sahlawi will spend three weeks training with Manchester United.
The 31-year-old, who has scored 26 times in 33 international appearances for his country, is looking to keep himself sharp ahead of this year’s World Cup.
“It was agreed with Manchester United for Mohammed Al-Sahlawi to join for a training programme for three weeks, may God benefit him,” Turki Al-Sheikh, chairman of the General Sports Authority (GSA) of Saudi Arabia, wrote on Twitter.
The arrangement is part of a commercial agreement with United and sporting authorities in Saudi Arabia, where Al-Sahlawi plays for Al-Nassr.
United in October signed a memorandum of understanding with GSA.
It will see the Old Trafford club help develop the Saudi football industry, as part of its 2030 Vision.
