The ten most beautiful goals by Eran Zehavi in ​​the PSV Eindhoven uniform (Sports)

John Textur, the owner of Botafogo, admits that difficulties have arisen in recent days in negotiations with Eran Zehavi.

The American billionaire (who this week also became the senior shareholder in French Lyon), landed in Brazil and told the media about the delicate situation with the Israeli striker, who is still debating where to sign.



"We continue to have great conversations with him, but he has at least two other options that come to mind. He seems to consider Botafogo as a great option, but it's a family decision that needs to be made," he said.

"His family is very worried, especially in recent weeks. I know he still loves our project, and meanwhile the talks are ongoing."

Last week there was another incident that undermined the Zehavi family, when dozens of fans invaded the team's locker room in protest of its results.

"We have to admit that this story has adversely affected our conversations with some players. It affects the players, their families. Rio de Janeiro is a wonderful and safe place, but we have to keep 'selling' it to the players and marketing the positive sides. After this case, It's harder. "



Textur says that "personal security is definitely one of the problems with Zahavi. He has more options and the decision will be made together with the family. He does not make decisions alone. We love him, it's a big deal and I think he loves the club too."



About two weeks ago, Textur expressed great confidence in Zehavi's signing, and in interviews with the Brazilian media, he stated that eight new signings will be completed soon, including the Israeli.

He now admits he was wrong in his assessment.



"When I said that, my assumption was that Zahavi was closed, but it turns out that the negotiations are not over yet. Anyway we are at an early stage, the transfer window only opens on July 18. At first you try to go for the highest quality players, but they are not always available." .
