After one of the best seasons of his career, Ural Degani is set to have a professionally and financially upgraded summer this summer. But in the Corona era, with pay cuts and the difficulty of going abroad, the brake will have to make decisions soon.

If until a few days ago Betar Jerusalem’s offer was on the agenda and on the other hand the heads of Hapoel Tel Aviv opposed his stay, in recent days other voices have been heard among the Reds. The management accepts Nir Klinger’s desire to keep him, but is only willing to do so Option of release abroad without consideration if and when an attractive offer arrives (its current clause stands at 100,000 euros, dating back to the days of the Corona). It should be noted that Degani is expected to receive the supplement to the June salary and will require very clear clauses regarding cuts and changes in the future, with an option for a contract for a third season at Hapoel Tel Aviv also on the table.

If Degani does not stay and prefers Betar, the candidates for Hapoel Tel Aviv are Ido Levy, who played for Hapoel Raanana, and Tal Kahila, who was in the Greek Atromitos last season.

As far as Betar Jerusalem is concerned, Degani is the first priority over any foreign brakeman and the professional team thinks he is the right player to play alongside Diego Verdaske. With him to understand. At the same time, Betar can not wait too long and will want answers in the coming days, otherwise they will advance negotiations with one of the foreigners on the agenda. Degani himself will have to decide not to end up bald here and there, despite the promised contract with Hapoel Tel Aviv. Team offers per player range from $ 150,000 to $ 180,000, plus grants.

As for the financial conditions, Betar’s offer at this stage is slightly higher than that of Hapoel Tel Aviv, but it seems that this is not what will decide for Degani, but more the feeling of the right place for him. On the one hand he is captain of Hapoel Tel Aviv Seven of all the management’s wars against him. Although Betar is an extreme transition for him, it is also a new and clean page after all the hardships he went through with the Hapoel Tel Aviv management and the fear that he will go through this in the future. As mentioned, in the coming days Degani will make a final decision.
