Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Bnei Sakhnin 1:1 (Sport1)
Eran Zahavi's name unexpectedly popped up again in the context of a move to Brazilian football.
Today (Friday) it was reported on the "Revista Colorada" website, which covers Internacional Porto Alegre, that a businessman who works in Brazil on behalf of Zahavi contacted the team and offered them the striker of Maccabi Tel Aviv.
This is how a source quoted him in the report: "International is in talks about him, but I can't say beyond that."
It was also written that the site where the report was published contacted the management of the club in question, where they responded that it was only "speculation" and did not confirm their interest in the 35-year-old Israeli star.
As you may remember, after Botafogo continuously wooed Zahavi last summer, until the latter ultimately chose to return to Maccabi Tel Aviv, last month it was reported once again in Brazil that Botafogo is interested in Zehavi again and its owner, John Textor, is ready to reconsider bringing in the yellow player.
The Brazilian journalist Daniel Browne, who signed the same publication, also claimed that "another Brazilian team from the top league is following Zahavi and is ready to sign him" - did he mean International?
It is also important to note that Ronen Katsav, Zahavi's agent, told Walla!
Sport in response to a report last month: "Eran has a contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv for two years, and despite all the inquiries that continue to arrive, and not only from Brazil, he has no intention of leaving or not honoring the agreement he signed."
