Villarreal have agreed to sell
Brazil striker Nilmar to Qatari club Al Rayyan, the Spanish
second division team said on their website
The 28-year-old, who has won over 20 caps, leaves as part of
a clearout at the club known as the 'Yellow Submarine' after
they were relegated from La Liga in May.
Villarreal finished fourth in 2011 and began the last
campaign in the Champions League before sliding down the table
and being relegated after losing on the final day of the season.
Nilmar joins players like Spain goalkeeper Diego Lopez,
Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero and Argentine striker Marco
Ruben in leaving the club with the exits of high-profile players
forced upon Villarreal by their changed circumstances.
