Adelaide United's Craig Goodwin to make Saudi Arabia move
A big money move for the Aussie
Adelaide United and Socceroos winger Craig Goodwin is the latest name to make the move to Saudi Arabia.
Goodwin will make the move for a $800,000 transfer fee paid to Adelaide United, while earning roughly $2.5 million a year in wages, reports The Inner Sanctum.
The Reds captain had reportedly requested a three-year extension on his current deal, which has two years to run, but it was rejected by the club.
Goodwin has previously played in Saudi Arabia, with his last stint coming before his most recent return to the Reds.
The Munno Para product will play against world class stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Ngolo Kante, Neymar, Ruben Neves, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson and Riyad Mahrez.
