Promoted to the Saudi Pro League, Al Kholood Club is poised to welcome Moussa Marega, a prolific former striker for Al Hilal who played the past season with Al Sharjah FC in the United Arab Emirates, according to Africafoot.

The 33-year-old Malian striker, dubbed the “Terminator,” had been in discussions with Brazilian club Vasco de Gama.

However, Marega, whose contract with Al Sharjah expires on June 30, appears to have opted for a return to the Persian Gulf, securing an agreement with Al Kholood.

Marega’s move to Al Kholood comes as the club aims to establish itself in the increasingly competitive Saudi Pro League.

The league has seen a significant influx of global superstars recently, including Senegalese forward Sadio Mané, Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo, and Brazilian sensation Neymar Jr.

The Malian forward is highly regarded by Al Kholood’s Portuguese coach, Fabiano José Costa Flora.

Marega’s extensive experience is expected to be a crucial asset for the club, which seeks to maintain its position in the top tier of Saudi football.

During his first tenure in Saudi Arabia, Marega was a key player for Al Hilal, participating in 75 matches across all competitions and contributing 25 goals and 7 assists.

His impressive track record includes winning the 2021 Asian Champions League, the 2022 Saudi Pro League title, the 2022 Super Cup, and the 2023 Saudi King’s Cup.

Al Kholood is banking on Marega’s proven goal-scoring ability and veteran presence to help them navigate the challenges of the Saudi Pro League.

The club’s ambition to remain competitive and avoid relegation is clear, and Marega’s addition could be a pivotal factor in achieving that goal.

Marega’s journey from Portugal to the Persian Gulf has been marked by significant achievements.

He made a name for himself in the Primeira Liga with Vitória SC and FC Porto before making a high-profile move to Al Hilal.

His tenure at Al Hilal solidified his reputation as a formidable striker, known for his physical prowess and clinical finishing.

The striker’s recent stint with Al Sharjah FC in the UAE saw him continue to perform at a high level, further cementing his status as a valuable asset for any team.

Now, as he prepares to join Al Kholood, Marega is expected to bring the same level of excellence and experience to his new club.

Al Kholood’s strategic signing of Marega demonstrates their commitment to building a competitive squad capable of holding its own in a league that is rapidly attracting some of the biggest names in world football.

Marega’s arrival is anticipated to bolster the club’s attacking options and provide a much-needed boost as they face the rigors of top-flight competition.

With Marega’s official signing expected soon, Al Kholood fans are eagerly anticipating the impact their new striker will have on the team’s fortunes in the upcoming season.
