Last season, Ayew made 46 league appearances for Swansea City who reached the Championship promotion play-off final where they lost to Brentford.
He netted 17 goals for the Welsh side, ending the season as the club’s top scorer.
According to media reports, Ayew will earn around $220,000 a month at the Qatari champions, who are coached by Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez.
The Ghanaian was linked with a move to several European clubs, including Scottish giants, Celtic, but he has opted to join Al Sadd ahead of the upcoming season.
Al Sadd have been champions of Qatar 15 times and won the league and cup double last season.
