Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Maccabi Haifa 0:3 (Sport1)
Maccabi Tel Aviv and Red Bull Salzburg eventually closed on the transfer of Oscar Gloch for 7 million euros, the amount of the exit clause that was in the contract the player signed at the beginning of the season.
In the first appeal made by the leaders of Red Bull Salzburg to Maccabi Tel Aviv, they announced that they wanted to exercise Oscar Gloch's exit clause, but offered to offset one million euros from him in exchange for 10 percent of Gloch's ticket, which would remain in the hands of Maccabi Tel Aviv.
The Austrians actually proposed that in the next sale of Gloch, if indeed there is one, from its price they will offset the 6 million euros that Red Bull will pay to Maccabi Tel Aviv and the balance will be calculated 10 percent that will go to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
The Yellows quickly realized that this was an unattractive offer for them, because even if Gloch, for example, is sold for 20 million euros from Red Bull Salzburg to another team, first the six million will be offset and what will remain is 14 million euros, of which Maccabi Tel Aviv will receive 10 percent, which is 1.4 million euros only.
Hence, this means that if Gloch is a success story in Salzburg and is sold for an amount that is three times what he is currently being sold for, Maccabi Tel Aviv will make a total return of 400 thousand euros.
Maccabi Tel Aviv's counter offer was not accepted.

Against this offer of the Austrians, Maccabi Tel Aviv submitted a counter-offer that Salzburg was thinking about in the last 72 hours.
Maccabi Tel Aviv's offer was supposed to keep a higher percentage, but this was opposed by Red Bull.
In the end, it was Salzburg's right to decide how it behaves, because Oskar Gloch had an agreed release clause of 7 million euros which it would pay in full and the decision whether to include in the deal a percentage of a future sale that might serve Maccabi Tel Aviv, was in the hands of the Austrians.
