Ghaleb joined the Al-Nassr U-17 team in the summer of 2006. As he was under the scouts' eyes, Al-Nassr U-17 team manager, Nasir AlKanani, succeeded in including Ghaleb in his talent U-17 squad. Not surprisingly, with his accurate passes and mature look in the first year, Ghaleb did not take a long time to get promoted to the first team. His first appearance was in the middle of the 2008/2009 season, when the Argentine Edgardo Bauza picked him for the line-up in a match against arch rival Al-Hilal. These kinds of games were considered to be tough for a young 17-year-old player. However, Ghaleb surprised spectators with his talent by keeping control of the ball and making accurate passes. Since then, he has assured his position in the squad.
On 8 March 2010, Ghaleb signed with a couple of other young talent players, the first professional contract in his career with Al-Nassr ending in 2015.
