After six years in German football, it's now been confirmed that VfL Wolfsburg fullback Paulo Otavio will continue his footballing career on the Arabian Peninsula.

His departure on an expiring contract having been previously confirmed, Paulo Otavio's 2023/24 footballing future is now set. The 28-year-old Brazilian signed a two-year-deal with Qatari outfit Al-Sadd Sports Club on Thursday. Otavio departs the Bundesrepublik after four seasons spent playing for Wolfsburg and two campaigns representing FC Ingolstadt 04.

Otavio made a total of 95 league appearances for the two clubs in the top two German footballing divisions. He garnered five assists for Niko Kovac's VfL this year before a syndesmosis tear in the ankle prematurely ended his current campaign. Given his age and estimated market value (€6.8 million), it's not inconceivable that Otavio may return to European football some day.
