Al-Ittihad continues to rile through the Jupiler Pro League. They extended their lead further last weekend, beating STVV with a late goal and seeing their rivals drop points. As a result, Anderlecht is in second place with eight points, then Gent with thirteen points.
As if that wasn't enough, Union can also qualify for the semi-finals of the Kroki Cup on Thursday evening and will also play the Intermediate Round of the Conference League against Eintracht Frankfurt in February. It may then be able to count on an additional acquisition.
The union preys on Israeli sentiment
After all, the people of Brussels want to add another great talent to their already integrated core. according to The newspaper After all, they have their eyes on Anan Khalili. The 19-year-old right-winger has enjoyed great success at Maccabi Haifa this season.
His tally now stands at six goals and two assists in 31 appearances, which also earned him first-choice selection for the Israeli national team in November. He has now collected three caps. So notice this stormy development in the union.
A million dollar offer would be necessary
According to Israeli media, they made an offer of €2 million, but this was rejected elsewhere. But in any case, Al-Ittihad will have to pay several million for Khalili, who still has a contract with Maccabi Haifa until 2026.
Perhaps he will be seen primarily at Dowden Park as an asset for the future and will be given the necessary time to adapt. If the Union strikes next week, that is.
