Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Maccabi Haifa 0:3 (Sport1)
After closing the details for the addition of Goni Naor, Maccabi Haifa will now speed up the contacts with Dia Saba.
As we published this week, Maccabi Haifa decided to renew the attempts to join Saba and the club estimates that if a team is not found abroad that will pay him a very high salary, he will respond positively to their offer to join Maccabi Haifa.
Maccabi Haifa received a message from Saba stating that he is interested in finding a team in a central city in Turkey with a salary high or in one of the Gulf countries, with the aim of continuing to play abroad: "Dia wants to stay abroad", said one of his friends, "he is in excellent shape and thinks he can continue to progress abroad both professionally and financially".
However, Maccabi Haifa believes that he may relent and accept the offer if he does not find a team soon.

And back to Goni Naor.
Maccabi Haifa very much wants the agreement with Hapoel Jerusalem and its captain, according to which they will pay half a million euros for his purchase.
The idea was initially to take advantage of the fact that Naor is free in the summer, but in the capital they made it clear that they would require a significant improvement fee and therefore it was decided to conclude with his purchase in advance.
Hapoel Jerusalem also insisted on including a clause agreed upon by all parties in the contract, which means that if Maccabi Haifa decides to part with the player or loan him out in the next two and a half years, he will be able to move to Israel only to Hapoel Jerusalem.
