For the first time in history, an Arab club has contracted an Israeli football player. Dia Saba, a 28-year-old attacking midfielder, moves for 2.5 million euros from Guangzhou R&F, the Chinese club of trainer Giovanni van Bronckhorst, to Al-Nasr.
The club from the capital Dubai of the United Arab Emirates has already uploaded images of Saba in the Al-Maktoum Stadium. The footballer was born in the north of Israel and is of Palestinian descent.
The special transfer appears to be a direct result of the agreements recently concluded between Israel on the one hand and the Gulf States of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates on the other. Under the watchful eye of US President Donald Trump, the Arab countries normalized their relationship with Israel.
Sabia is a ten-time international of the Israeli national team.
