Summary: Maccabi Haifa - Bnei Sakhnin 1:3 (Sport 1)
Gamba Osaka is expected to start pre-season training in the Japanese league at the end of January, and Maccabi Haifa will ask captain Netta Lavi to stay at the club as late as possible.
As is known, the midfielder made a principled decision to accept the offer that was made to him, and now the matter is in negotiations between the clubs on the amount of the compensation, when only a very dramatic turn will prevent his passing.
Osaka's coach, Danny Poyatos, will arrive in Japan on January 9 and begin preparing the training camp for the upcoming season, with the expectation being that the team will officially start the training camp at the end of January.
Poyatos intends to demand that Lavi show up for the start of training, so the midfielder of Maccabi Haifa is expected to leave already within the next month.
At the same time, the Greens will try to keep Levi as late as possible and will ask him to stay at least until about a week before he flies.
In Haifa, they hope that Lavi will play in the season's game against Maccabi Tel Aviv on January 23 and only then will he fly to Japan, but this also depends on Poyatos himself, who will have to decide on the matter.
