Davi Headed to Qatar for 500 Mil.

Grampus have announced that Brazilian forward Davi is indeed headed out the door, lured away by the petrodollars of Umm Salal. The transfer is subject Davi passing a medical, so he may be less than totally committed in any challenges he makes against FC Tokyo on Saturday, or in the Nabisco Cup game against them on Wednesday. :-)

Local sources say that it has cost Umm Salal 500 million yen to buy out the remainder of Davi's three year contract. They also say that he will be getting a big pay rise, jumping from the 40 million yen he was reportedly getting from Grampus to 140 million at Umm Salal. Let's hope that the club use some of that 500 million that are getting on a creative midfielder.
