Pohang Steelers midfielder Lee Myung-joo, 24, will play in the UAE league next season.
"Lee has signed a three-year deal with Al Ain for an annual salary of W1.5 billion," the Steelers said on Monday (US$1=W1,016).
The Steelers did not disclose the transfer fee, but it was reported to be US$5 million, making it the largest in the history of the K-league.
The previous high was the $3.5 million that Lee Chung-young commanded when he moved to English side Bolton from FC Seoul in 2009.
