Born in Amman of Lebanese-Palestinian descent, Bawab's family moved to Catalonia, Spain when he was a child. He started playing for the youth teams of local UE Cornellà, leaving at the age of 18 to Real Madrid where he completed his formation, and scoring 30 goals in his sole season with the Juvenil side. Tha'er Fayed Al Bawab (born 1 March 1985) is a Jordanian footballer who plays for Romanian club FC Steaua București mainly as a forward.
In 2004, Bawab signed a professional contract with Real Madrid, and the club also agreed to pay a college scholarship for him, as he went on to make his senior debuts with the third team in the fourth division. At that time, talks had started where people compared his style of play to Zinedine Zidane (even though they did not play in the same position); first-team coach Mariano García Remón thought about promoting to the main squad, but eventually did not saying he did not want to put pressure on the youngster, who was just 19.
