Julian Draxler has ended a near seven-year stay at Paris St Germain after signing for Qatari club Al-Ahli SC on a contract until summer 2025.

The German attacking midfielder moved to the French capital from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg in January 2017 and went on to make 198 appearances, scoring 26 goals and registering 41 assists.

Draxler, capped 58 times by Germany, won 12 trophies with PSG, including four Ligue 1 titles, but he gradually drifted to the margins and spent last season on loan with Portuguese outfit Benfica.

“Al-Ahly Sports Club officially announced on Monday its contract with German star Julian Draxler for two seasons ending in the summer of 2025,” said a statement on Al-Ahly’s website.

PSG said in their statement: “The club would like to wish Julian all the best for the rest of his career.”
