Zahavi closing in on China; Arveladze to be new coach

Maccabi Tel Aviv is about to embark on a new era, with star Eran Zahavi on the verge of completing a move to China and Georgian Shota Arveladze set to become the team’s new head coach.

Despite the yellow-and-blue’s initial rejection of Chinese club Guangzhou R&F’s offer for Zahavi, an improved deal in the region of $8 million is all but done after the 28-year-old pleaded to be allowed to accept a fantastically lucrative contract. Zahavi is set to earn an estimated $12.5 million over the next two-and-a-half years, as well as a signing bonus in the excess of $5 million.
