Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Beitar Jerusalem 0:4 (Sport1)
Maccabi Tel Aviv has not yet completed its quota of foreigners for the coming season, and according to a report in South America it is not impossible that it will soon be strengthened by a Brazilian connection.
The new name that came up is that of 26-year-old Natan, an attacking midfielder who can play behind the striker and on both wings.
According to the report, Maccabi Tel Aviv believes in its ability to add the Brazilian, and coach Vladimir Ivić also approved his inclusion in light of his being a player who can play in all offensive positions in the midfield and with an emphasis on the wings, so that he will meet Ivić's several needs except on the wing.
It is also claimed that Natan has already received an offer from Maccabi Tel Aviv who will now have to settle his move with Atlético Mineiro and Fluminense, to which he is loaned until the end of the year, assuming that the purchase option is not exercised.

In the Fluminense uniform, he recorded 634 minutes in 15 league games, during which he scored twice (including this week against Flamengo) and scored another goal.
He also made three appearances with the team this season in the Copa Sudamericana as well as one minute in the Copa Libertadores.
Natan was purchased in 2015 by Chelsea for 4 million euros, after he starred in the Brazil under-17 team in the 2013 World Cup where he scored five goals and set up another five in five appearances.
However, from the Blues, he was loaned to Vitesse, with whom he also won the Dutch Cup in 2017, and then went on loan to the French side Amiens and the Portuguese Blanche, but eventually returned to Brazil when he signed with Atlético Mineiro, who paid about 3 million euros for him in the summer of 2020. He is now on loan to Fluminense until this December , when Fluminense has an option to purchase him.
In addition to those five U17 World Cup appearances nearly a decade ago, he also made nine appearances for Brazil's Olympic team.
