Man Utd set for double transfer raid on Tottenham for Moura and Dier

first_imgMANCHESTER UNITED are plotting a sensational double raid for unsettled Tottenham duo Lucas Moura and Eric Dier, according to reports.The Red Devils missed out on moves for both Premier League stars under former manager Jose Mourinho, but the pair remain high on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s list of targets.2 Lucas Moura and Eric Dier could both be making the switch from London to ManchesterCredit: Getty – ContributorThe Old Trafford club were interested in capturing Brazil star Lucas from Paris Saint-Germain in January 2018, but opted instead to sign Alexis Sanchez.While Mourinho made England International Dier his number one midfield target the summer before, but was forced to turn to former stalwart Nemanja Matic after Tottenham blocked any approach.But since then, both players have struggled to cement their place in Tottenham’s starting eleven and United are primed to swoop.According to the Daily Star, Solskjaer is a huge admirer of versatile Moura and views the South American as the ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku.The Norweigan failed to land a world-class attacking replacement for the Belgian after moves for Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala fell through.But Solskjaer views Moura as the best solution to that problem, with the Samba star able to imitate Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in operating both outwide and centrally.The £50million winger only signed a new five-year deal with Spurs in July, but has become frustrated by his bit-part role this season.Lucas enjoyed a fine end to last term, especially with his dramatic hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final against Ajax.But he was benched for the defeat to Liverpool in Madrid and his only full match this season was the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.And the 27-year-old, who was a target for Barcelona this summer, will be increasingly keen to quit the north Londoners if the situation stays the same between now and January.2Latest Manchester United NewsODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in trainingPicturedTRAINING DAYFernandes back in his Mini while Pogba arrives for training in yellow FerrariMARCSMANWatch Rashford floor Man Utd team-mates with ‘naughty’ bit of skill in trainingGossip’DEAD’ PAULPogba’s proposed £15m-a-year Real transfer risks wage row after virus pay cutOD TO JOYMan Utd ‘very close’ to extending Ighalo deal says agent in dramatic U-turnMeanwhile, the Star adds that United are also continuing to track out-of-favour Dier as they remain in the market for a holding midfielder.Solsjaer was priced out of moves for West Ham’s Declan Rice and Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff this summer and could make a cut-price swoop for the Spurs man instead.Dier struggled throughout the last campaign with poor form and injuries and is yet to make a single appearance under Poch this year.Tottenham hero Lucas Moura brought to tears as he watches amazing Brazilian commentary of his Champions League winning goallast_img read more

Impressive Scots steal late draw against Kiwis

first_imgThe impressive Bravehearts struggled to make the most of their many first-half opportunities to trail 6-4 at the break but with the howling wind at their backs in the second half, the masterful kicking game of Scotland five-eighth Danny Brough caused New Zealand no shortage of headaches in the second.They snatched the lead for the first time in the match with a 70th-minute Brough penalty goal before two late – and crucially, unconverted – New Zealand tries looked to have sealed the deal.But a late miracle try to Dragons centre Euan Aitken and clutch conversion from Brough sent the Bravehearts in to raptures with a historic draw.Another inconsistent game from New Zealand half Shaun Johnson – in which he was chiefly responsible for the Kiwis again struggling with last-play options – was dotted with a few moments of brilliance to help create a couple of New Zealand’s tries. However he looked as confused as everyone else was when he was awarded the man of the match award with Brough clearly the standout performer from the game.The draw means the Kiwis sneak into the final if Australia beat England in the final group game, with England simply needing a win to join the Aussies (who now can’t miss the final) at Anfield next Sunday.A committed first 40 from the Bravehearts saw them trail by just 6-4 at the break and if anything probably deserved to have the lead after defending their tryline impressively and asking plenty of questions of the New Zealanders.They were running into the teeth of a fearsome wind as well as a tough Kiwi defensive line yet still held 54 per cent of the ball and, through a combination of poor offloading choices from their opponents and a couple of fortuitous six-again chances, had no shortage of opportunities at the black and white line.Despite being by far the better team in the opening 20 minutes, a one-on-one miss from centre Kane Linnett on Tohu Harris allowed the back-rower to send debutant winger David Fusitu’a over for the night’s opening four-pointer in the 24th minute.Not long after, a brilliant grubber from fullback Lachlan Coote and an equally impressive grounding by winger Lewis Tierney got the Bravehearts on the board. Danny Brough’s attempted sideline conversion came within inches of levelling up despite the buffeting winds.With the howling wind now at his back rather than in his face, Scotland pivot Brough put his masterful kicking game to work, guiding over a 40/20 just moments into the second half to give the Bravehearts an early attacking set.An inspirational defensive play from Scotland, bundling Fusitu’a into touch after a wonderful kick and kick-chase in the 50th minute, proved they weren’t set for a second-half collapse. When debutant Joe Tapine was penalised in possession shortly after for a swinging arm on Addy that led to a push and shove, you got the sense the Kiwis were rattled.The Kiwis hung on and when a short kick fortuitously landed in Fusitu’a’s lap New Zealand surged downfield. The debutant bagged his second try a few plays later from a regulation overlap to make it 10-4 with 25 minutes to play.As they did after conceding the opening try tough, Scotland hit back.From nothing, a Coote cut-out pass sent Tierney into open space and he found Ben Hellewell in support. Despite having any number of support runners to choose from, the back-rower chose to put a show-and-go on fullback Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and strolled over for the level-up try.With the match suddenly anyone’s for the taking, hooker Liam Hood – for the second time in the game – produced a cheeky play, deliberately passing into an opposition player in the ruck from dummy half to draw a penalty. Brough nailed the tricky penalty goal to put Scotland up 12-10 with 10 minutes to play.The Kiwis weren’t finished though; some positive play got them in range and Johnson set up a repeat set before a rampaging run from lock Greg Eastwood set the scene for Gerard Beale’s four-pointer to put his team back in front by two.Needing something special in the final five minutes to cause a boilover, Scotland instead conceded another quick try. It came from some great work in the ruck from Issac Luke to send Shaun Johnson into space and some clever ball movement eventually finished with Beale’s second try in almost as many minutes.Luke again missed from the touchline leaving Scotland with the unlikely task of finding a converted try in the final three minutes to snatch a draw.’Unlikely’ wasn’t in Scotland’s vocabulary through and with a chance near the Kiwis’ line they opted to run it on the last and when centre Euan Aitken beat two men to score it handed Brough a tricky conversion to level the scores.When Brough’s ice-cold effort curled back between the posts his celebration was something to behold and Scotland then hung on for the final few plays before full-time to steal a historic draw.New Zealand Kiwis (Fusitu’a 2, Beale 2 tries; Luke goal) drew with Scotland Bravehearts 18(Tierney, Hellewell, Aitken tries; Brough 3 goals) at Zebra Claims Stadium.

Raonic leaves Tsitsipas out with his 19 direct serves

first_imgStefanos Tsitsipas will be unable to revalidate the semifinals he reached final 12 months on the Australian Open. The Greek, sixth favourite to the title, was shocked within the third spherical by the Canadian Milos Raonic, earlier than which he fell 7-5, 6-Four and 7-6 (2) after two and a half hours of the sport. The Canadian cemented his victory because of his 19 direct serves and 55 successful strokes.Each gamers began very stable with their serve, till in the eleventh recreation of the primary set Raonic broke the serve of Tsitsipas to consolidate his service and on this approach he took the primary sleeve 7-5. He did not react Tsitsipas, since within the first recreation of the second set Raonic once more broke the service of the Hellene though Tsitsipas traced three break balls. The Canadian didn’t give in with his serve and within the tenth recreation closed the sleeve 6-4.Within the third set, Tsitsipas and Raonic failed to interrupt the serve, so the whole lot was determined within the tie-break and within the tiebreaker, the Canadian managed to interrupt two consecutive minibreaks to Tsitsipas to seal his go to eighths, the place it will likely be measured with Marin Cilic (who defeated Roberto Bautista), and the defeat of the ‘Grasp’ Tsitsipas, who should wait to get his first Grand Slam.Outcomes of the boys’s crew of the Australian Open.last_img read more

Edgar Méndez: “The club has changed a lot for good”

first_imgEdgar Méndez analyzed the ovation paid by Mendizorroza’s stands when he jumped on the pitch against Eibar. “I already said in the presentation that I was returning to a club where I had been very happy and, when I went out to the field and people showed that affection, I felt very good and I want to thank this hobby for how he behaved with me in the past and also now. It was very nice”, said.The Canary has been in Vitoria for a week and He believes that “the city has not changed much but the club has. And for the better. You just have to see the sports city or how it works on a daily basis. Here things are done very well. Yes, the pace of training has caught my attention, which is much higher than in Mexico.

The unknowns of the punishment to the City

first_imgCan the TAS annul the sanction?The City announced yesterday that it will go to the TAS (Arbitral Court of Sport). Presumably, this last legal instance will be pronounced during this summer. The City can request precautionary measures if this Court does not issue a ruling before the start of the Champions League 2020-21 and, in turn, the cancellation of the UEFA penalty. Nor is the route of ordinary justice ruled out, as the Swiss Zion once undertook, if the resolution of the TAS is not favorable. They have been waiting for this sanction for two years, so the club’s lawyers citizen They will be quite advanced. The PSG, for example, was not penalized for financial doping. The closest record evidencing UEFA’s iron fist in this Fair Financial Play has been seen with the Milan, which is serving this season the penalty imposed by the organism that governs continental football. His place in the Europa League was occupied by Roma while Torino played the previous one. In the summer of 2018, the TAS saved at the last moment the club ‘rossonero’ from a penalty of two years without playing in Europe. In 2017 Berlusconi sold the entity to Yonghong Li for € 724M, thanks to a loan from the US Elliott fund of € 300M. Li did not comply with the payments and in the summer of 2018 the club went to Elliot. UEFA opened another investigation this summer, for the irregularities in 2018-19 and with the Americans in front, which ended a pact with Milan (ratified by the TAS): the punishment of two years was only one.Can it also be sanctioned in the Premier?According to article 3.02 of the Champions regulations, the clubs of the associations belonging to Spain, England, Italy and Germany participate with four clubs that qualify through their national league. If the City finishes between the first four, its place in Champions would happen to the fifth classified. This is ratified by 3.02 and established by 4.01, section C, where he explains the rules to participate in the competition: “Have obtained a license issued by your association in accordance with the UEFA Club and Fair Play Financial Licensing Regulations“Even as per account The independent, the English Federation could impose a fine on the City in the Premier by taking away points for breaching financial regulations. Will the Champions League become the great goal of Guardiola this season?Guardiola arrived at the City in the summer of 2016, and although in his first year he failed to raise any title for the first time in his career as a coach, last year he became the first English club to win the national triplet: the League against Liverpool, the FA Cup and the League Cup. “It’s harder than the Champions”, defended. Now his revalidation will come this year in the top continental competition after fall eliminated with the City in quarters (2018-19 and 2017-18) and eighth (2016-17). He ends his contract in 2021, He wants to continue, but he also acknowledged that if Madrid eliminates them, the owner may throw him out. Now, if Juve allows it, the only possibility of ending his contract in winning the Champions League because the Premier seems impossible: Liverpool have an advantage of 22 points!If City wins the Champions League, who would go to the Club World Cup and the European Super Cup?This assumption is contemplated in the UEFA regulations, in the duties of the clubs, in its article 6.01, section N: “If applicable, to participate as a winner, or if requested, as a Champions finalist, in the European Super Cup, in the Club World Cup and in another international competition with UEFA rank“That is to say, that duty to play the European Super Cup and the World Cup I would go to the Champions finalist, in case City won its first Champions. Yes, for UEFA and the competition would be a stick (economical and prestigious) that the champion could not defend his title (The regulations of the competition ensures that the Champions of the Champions League and the Europa League play the next campaign in the maximum continental competition although they are not classified through their leagues, as explained in Article 3.03, as long as they comply with the financial rules). Can the City sign players once the penalty is executed?This sanction to the City has nothing to do with what in his day suffered Chelsea, Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid or City itself, which was punished this summer by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for breaking the regulations regarding international transfers and the registration of players under 18. The punishments to these clubs were resolved unevenly. In theory, Manchester City will have no limitations in this regard beyond the resolution that may extend UEFA or modify the TAS. With the sanction against Milan, for example, in addition to leaving him without Europa League he limited the registration of players to 21. What would happen to the City’s income?Thebes says about the punishment to the City that “better late than never”. If the City really must be two years old without playing in the Champions League, the wound it will leave in its coffers will be of considerable size. The income that is expected this year to participate in the Champions League is a minimum of 80 million euros and a maximum of 110. Two years without being able to aspire to that piece of cake would considerably reduce your cache in terms of sponsorships and international tours. That would be difficult to compete in the Premier. A drama. The City project as it has evolved so far would be unfeasible …Mass scared of its stars?How are you going to retain the City to its stars if they won’t be able to show up in Europe? How Guardiola will renew the workforce without offering the European showcase to future incorporations? Right now, the City has up to 19 players who just signed up in 2022 or earlier, nine of the current squad and ten ceded. Names like Ottamendi (2022), Fernandinho (2021) or Omen (2021). And stars like Sterling (market value of € 160M), From bruynne (€ 150M), I healed (€ 100M) or Bernardo Silva (€ 100M) would be difficult to retain. In addition, the club would need to finance itself by selling players due to the decrease in revenue due to its absence in the Champions League and adapt the high salaries of the current squad to the new circumstances … Manchester City was sanctioned yesterday by UEFA with two years of exclusion from the next European competitions 2020-21 and 2021-22, plus a fine of 30 million euros, for infractions in the regulation of the Financial Fair Game. For a year, in March 2019, UEFA was investigating the Pep Guardiola team, which reacted yesterday as soon as the news was known. “Manchester City is disappointed but not surprised by today’s announcement by the UEFA Chamber of Adjudication,” City communicated. Now many unknowns are raised around the sanction and the English club …last_img read more
