Manchester United had reportedly tried to sign Medhi Benatia from Juventus last night, but he preferred to join Al-Duhail in Qatar.
The 31-year-old Morocco international asked to leave Juve so he could get more regular playing time.
There were links to numerous clubs in Italy, Europe and beyond, including Olympique Marseille and Milan.
Multiple sources suggest he is heading to Qatar with Al-Duhail, signing a three-year contract worth €5m plus bonuses.
Juventus are due to pocket €10m from the transfer fee.
