Real Madrid: All roads lead to Haaland

first_imgMadrid are working these days on preparing the squad for next season with the certainty that Jovic’s signing (just two goals this season) has been a fiasco. Follow Haaland’s situation from a distance, aware that, at any given moment, it would be easy to convince the player. “LaLiga would be a good championship for my son,” Haaland’s father recently told AS.. his salary it would not be a problem for Madrid. He currently has 36 million euros signed for a 4.5-year contract with Borussia (eight minutes gross per season). Considering that Madrid paid 60 million for Jovic, 45 for Vinicius and 40 for Rodrygo, Haaland doesn’t even seem expensive.Trond Tandberg & nbsp; (Getty Images) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Haaland and Odegaard.Trond Tandberg (Getty Images) There are few more options in the market for Madrid to solve the lack of goal that has been in the squad since he left Christian. Players like Lewandowski (31 years old) or Cavani (33), they seem too old to make a big investment; Kane (26) is too expensive (the Tottenham he valued it at 200 million); Icardi (27), that when the season ends he will return to Inter after his loan at PSG, too unstable; by Laurato (22) there will be no war with him Barca… In Madrid’s strategy, if Borussia does not give Haaland more money to change that clause that frees him in the 2020-21 winter market for 75 million), Norwegian is affordable so as not to condition the great movement of the immediate future, signing Mbappé in the summer of 2021. All roads lead to Haaland. Erling Braut Haland (Norway, age 19), was born for soccer on May 30. The nine goals he scored for Honduras in the 12-0 of the U-20 World Cup made his name go around the world. His excellent coordination of movements despite his 1.94 meters tall astonished the football planet. Then, in the winter market, the bid for the young pearl of the Salzburg began. The world’s leading teams were interested in him. Also Madrid, who finally decided to withdraw from the bid when the figures began to rise like foam. Strategically It was not a good operation when Jovic (21 years old) had just been signed for 60 million euros. In reality, Haaland was still an unknown, a player apparently with more physique of high jumper than footballer.It was finally Borussia who bet heavily on the Norwegian. He paid 20 million euros to Salzburg and another 23 in commissions: eight for the player’s father and 15 for his representative, Mino Raiola. Haaland agreed with the German team at the first exchange. He debuted off the bench in the 57th minute and ended up hat-trick. Since then, Haaland has continued to amaze locals and strangers. In the Borussia already has scored 12 goals in 11 games, there are 40 goals in 33 appearances if we add the ones he had as Salzburg at the start of the season. Haaland is already sufficiently contrasted that Madrid has set eyes on him. Being represented by Mino Raiola would not be a problem either. As this newspaper has learned, The famous agent’s relationship with Florentino Pérez continues to hang by a thread, but that of José Ángel Sánchez, in his role as a doer in large contracts, is fluid. Even the white entity favors the good relationship that Haaland has with Odegaard, both partners of selection in the lower categories of Norway and now in the absolute. Odegaard, who next season will play in Madrid, would intercede for Haaland to accompany him. The good news about the contractual situation of the Norwegian striker has already reached the offices of the Santiago Bernabéu. His father advised him to sign for Boorussia (when all the greats of Europe wanted him) not only because the German team guaranteed him minutes, but because They allowed him to sign a release clause from 2021 of 75 million euros. Haaland will not come out this summer, but it will be able to do it for that price, 75 million, in the winter market next season (2020-21). The current regulations, in addition, would allow him to play the Champions League with two teams. Without a doubt, the Norwegian, for that price, it’s a great opportunity.last_img read more

“Vinicius and Reinier have it all to be soon world top”

first_imgFlamengo does not stop exporting to the European elite players with very good looks. What is your secret?The main thing for me is the technical quality of the player, his natural instinct. We enhance the best they have and we work and develop their technical, physical and mental skills, but always without restricting their improvisation and creativity. 19 What is the key point for all this?The structure of the club and the excellent professionals that we have is what makes us references in training in Brazil. My main objective has always been to have a highly prepared team so that we can teach the players as much as possible, not only on the field, but also outside. Since my arrival in 2010, we began to create and develop a methodological notebook with Flamengo’s DNA, and each year it is implemented with new situations for training.How did you meet Vinicius?We practically entered the club together. He, aged 9 to 10, went to the futsal team and then to the field, where I already had more contact with him. At first glance I already realized that this child had something special.How was it?I would describe him as a very happy boy. He related well to all the players and employees, always with great respect despite being very playful. Study … just by pulling on his ears from a very young age (laughs). On the pitch it was pure magic, daring, creative, he faced rivals without fear, with always fine football and looking at the goal, what we call here in Brazil moleque football. You have followed the birth and evolution of many players. Where can Reinier go?Both he and Vinicius have all the conditions to be world top and be recognized soon as such.What is your greatest virtue?His coldness and precision in front of goal. Decide games.And in what does it have to improve?As he is still a developing boy, I think he needs to improve his intensity and tactical awareness, but he is one of the most complete players in the fundamentals that I saw playing at the Flamengo youth academy. “Vinicius was unique, he did not remember anyone because he had his own style” “Reinier’s greatest virtue is his coldness and precision in front of goal. He decides games” What potential did you see?He always stood out, and that we have excellent players in his generation. But he always played with bigger categories.Who did you remind him of?He was unique, he didn’t remember anyone because he had his own style.Are you still in contact with him?I have a lot of contact and friendship with his family. I always send Vini messages when I think he needs advice, it can be for constructive criticism or to motivate him at times when I feel he is not well. In October I went to Europe for work and stopped by Madrid to see how he was doing. We had dinner at his house with his family the two days I was there. When he comes to Rio de Janeiro he stops by and visits us.You know Reinier as few. What can you say about him?He arrived at the age of 12 for 13. His great potential began to appear at 14. He was a very focused, responsible boy, a friend of his peers. He has become a complete player, although logically he has yet to grow. 25 What helped you the most?The main thing was to always encourage him and his coaches not to lose the nerve, which made him different, that nothing and nobody limited that happy and creative football because it was his natural instinct. He taught me more than I taught him, with that huge smile, that simplicity and that passion that he has for this sport and that still move me.He always told him to be humble, to know how to listen to others, to respect the professionals who were there to help him and, most importantly, to know how to admire and value the institution where he works.He is known, among other things, for helping young people on a personal and family level. How was it with Vinicius and his environment?Not only me, but everyone in the club, we also feel responsible for the families. We try to guide them and help them in whatever is necessary. Especially Vini’s. We always had a very close relationship, of friendship and respect, with her parents, brothers and uncles, who are sensational. We always talk a lot about the future of Vini. This relationship of respect and transparency between them, the club and its agents helped a lot to succeed. Is this opportunity coming soon or are you ready?Yes, we talked several times about that sudden move. I tried to convey to him that he greatly appreciated this opportunity, that he left one giant club for another, and that he kept his feet on the ground and humility. And to do the football that enshrined him in Flamengo and in Brazil.Do you think it would have been better if it had finished in the professional team of Flamengo?No boy from 17 to 18 years old can be 100% prepared. It always has something to polish and develop. Maturity normally goes up to 23 years. What advice did you give him?May you maintain that great joy and determination in your work, may you work hard all day, and be humble and respect others.last_img read more

Higuaín would give way to Icardi, Harry Kane or Gabriel Jesús

first_imgtwenty-one Gonzalo Higuaín could be living his last months at Juventus. The Argentine striker, according to Tuttosport, I would be evaluating a return to River Plate that compares with Tevez’s departure directly from Turin to Boca Juniors.Juventus welcomes the departure of Pipita, who charges 13 million euros gross and whose goalscoring figures no longer reach those of the past, when he arrived from Naples. This campaign has 34 games and eight goals. The Turin newspaper adds, that with the departure of Brest, the bianconeri club will free up a significant gap in their salary bill to go for one of the most sought-after strikers in the European market. Tuttosport puts Harry Kane (Tottenham), Mauro Icardi (PSG), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) and even Valencian Ferran Torres in the spotlight.If produced, Higuaín would return to River thirteen years later. The tip went up to the first team in 2004 and in 2007, Real Madrid paid 12 million euros to start their journey in Europe where he has already passed through Naples and Juventus, which has yielded him twice: to Milan and Chelsea. The Argentine was capocannionere del Calcio on 15/16 with 36 goals and he has a quite complete record in which he still resists the Champions League and some title with the selection.last_img read more

Petersfield surprise Cornwall

first_imgWestern Bureau:Maliki Reid’s hat-trick led Petersfield to a surprise 4-3 victory over 10-man Cornwall College at the Frome Sports complex yesterday.The win secured Peterfield’s spot among the eight daCosta Cup Interzone winners in the FLOW Super Cup and eliminated Cornwall.Over at Jarrett Park, Rusea’s found renewed hope with a 7-1 lopsided victory over Herbert Morrison to join Petersfield in the next round of the daCosta Cup.It was a splendid display from the Westmoreland-based Petersfield, who earned their first ever win over Cornwall College in the daCosta Cup.Reid struck the opener in the seventh minute, then added his team’s second in the 12th and completed his hat-trick in the 34th minute.Cornwall, who were behind the eight- ball even before kick-off after arriving 20 minutes late for the 3 p.m. start, found some solace in attack when Peter-Lee Vassell found the net in the 22nd minute to cut the lead in half at 2-1.Reasonable leadBut a 3-1 deficit at half-time was always going to prove a challenge in the slippery underfoot conditions at the venue.Eight minutes into the second half, Donovon Brown struck a sweet free kick with venom into the Cornwall goal from 35 yards out to push his team into a 4-1 lead.Cornwall then got 59th-minute goal from Giovanni Reid, but then received a severe setback. Stephen Hylton, a key Cornwall College defender, was shown a straight red card in the 83rd minute for stomping on a Petersfield player.Playing a man short, however, Cornwall showed some amount of determination to reduce the deficit. Alrick Ottey this time netted in the 93rd minute, but it was a little too late to save their season.”We finally get one over Cornwall, and it is sweet,” said Petersfield’s assistant coach Dwayne Forrester.”The finishing was great today. We conceded three but managed to outscore them and earn a place in the Super Cup. Reaching the last 16 of the daCosta Cup is more important, but we will take it one game at a time,” he declared.Teams that have already qualified for the FLOW Super Cup as zone winners are Petersfield, St Elizabeth Technical, Clarendon College, Lacovia, Port Antonio, Vere Technical and Glenmuir.Yesterday’s resultsSTETHS 8 DeCarteret 0Annotto Bay 1 Fair Prospect 2Glenmuir 1 Seaforth 1Petersfield 4 Cornwall College 3Port Antonio 3 Brown’s Town 0Rusea’s 7 Herbert Morrison 1Clarendon College 0 Munro 0Manchester 1 Spalding 0Marcus Garvey 2 Lacovia 1Paul Bogle 4 Denbigh 0Dinthill 11 Islington 0Spot Valley 0 Manning’s 5Vere Tech 2 Ewarton 0Alston 0 Lennon 4Bog Walk 0 Kemps Hill 1last_img read more

Russell aiming to set a high bar, rich legacy

first_imgKOLKATA, India (CMC): Global trotting Twenty20 superstar Andre Russell says his ultimate goal is to create a rich legacy in cricket’s shortest format by setting the bar as high as he possibly can. The West Indies all-rounder was speaking in a post-match interview after a small but impressive cameo with the bat and brilliant death bowling that spurred Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to an exciting seven-run victory over Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday. Russell lashed 16 from 10 balls at the death as KKR rallied to 164 for three and crippled Kings XI run chase with a fiery opening spell that reduced them to 13 for three in the fourth over. “This is what I really work hard for. I am an all-rounder. I know my job is not very easy. My job is very hard,” said the Jamaican cricketer. “So I don’t have a problem batting until the end then coming and bowl the first over of the innings and bowl the last over. I don’t mind doing it.” Russell, who started his innings in the 17th over, belted a four and a six in a 27-run third wicket partnership and returned to capture four wickets for 20 runs from his four overs. With Kings XI needing 12 runs from the final over, Man-of-the- Match Russell conceded just four runs and also effected a run-out and grabbed his fourth wicket. “I think as a youngster part of my legacy I plan to leave behind, I want to set the bar as high as possible. So I love these challenges,” said Russell, a member of the West Indies team that defeated England in the finals to regain the T20 World Cup recently. “I enjoy bowling in this moment where you know it is either I can win the game for my team, or if it goes the other way, I learn from it and take a positive from it knowing next time what can I do different. So I enjoy the load and I just want to go from strength to strength.” With the victory, KKR joined new boys Gujarat Lions on 12 points but topped the standings courtesy of a superior net run rate.last_img read more

Diamond Debate | Merritt vs James in 400m showdown

first_imgK.C. Graham: The 400 metres field for the Prefontaine Classic is loaded with five men with sub-44 seconds in the race. Lowe: The 400m is probably my favourite event these days, and how could it not be with the performances we’ve see over the past few seasons! K.C. Graham: A cracker is expected, but it is the rivalry between LaShawn Merritt and Kirani James that will take centre stage, following their keen battle at the meet the last two times they met there. Lowe: It’s likely to be another good race between the two, but James must be feeling extremely confident given his start to the season and the fact that he has won here for two consecutive years. K.C. Graham: Yes, he has, but based on his world-leading time in the 200 metres, Merritt could upstage him here. I think Michael Johnson’s meet record of 43.92 seconds done in 2000 is in serious danger here. Lowe: Eugene always gives us good times and I’m going to agree regarding the meet record. Yes, Merritt’s speed has looked impressive, but he just doesn’t seem to have the answer to James in recent times. James has dominated this rivalry, finishing ahead of the American in six of the last eight meetings. K.C. Graham: Could we have a repeat of 2014 when both athletes touched the line at 43.97 seconds? James will be seeking to go under 44 seconds for the third year in a row. He should start favourite to win here, but Merritt could use his early speed to kill him off, and I liked how he ran at the Rabat Meet, not extending himself, possibly saving for the clash with James at Eugene. Lowe: He can save all he wants. He will not beat Kirani in Eugene. I’m going for a Kirani win. What can we expect from Rusheen McDonald in this one? K.C. Graham: I saw McDonald in a short workout on Tuesday evening at Stadium East and he looked good. An improved performance from him is expected. The race itself, despite James drawing first blood over Merritt at Drakes (Drake Relays), I am giving Merritt the edge here as his 19.78 seconds personal best in the 200 metres will see him using his telling speed to overcome James. Lowe: I’m sticking with Kirani and anticipating a solid run from Rusheen.last_img read more

Griffin, Beverley lead Clippers past Jazz

Said Snyder: “You have to be who you are. In the end it’s all about what style you play that fits your team.”Clippers: Rivers said G Milos Teodosic did not actually tear his plantar fascia on Sunday. “But whatever he did, he did it well. That’s why we’re calling it indefinite,” Rivers said. Austin Rivers started Tuesday in place of Teodosic. Doc Rivers said rookies Sindarius Thornwell or Jawun Evans will pick up the bulk of the extra guard time. Said Rivers: “I think Sindarius has a chance to be an elite defender in our league.”TEAM PLAYFor a team that lost three starters from last season — and three of its top five scorers — the Clippers are finding ways to share the scoring load early this season.Griffin is again leading the team in scoring, but he’s getting plenty of help.“It’s versatility,” he said. “I think that’s our calling card this year.

Man U beats Arsenal 3-1 in EPL as de Gea shines in goal

first_imgMOST READ De Gea made 14 saves, equaling the record for the most stops in a Premier League match.It was a pulsating contest from start to finish at Emirates Stadium, with a glut of shots on goal, amazing goalkeeping, a sending off, and textbook counterattacks.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“The game was fantastic,” United manager Jose Mourinho said. “If I was in the stands, or if I was at home watching, I would be sad to see the game finish. In my case, it’s different because I want to win. I wanted to see the game finish.”United’s first two goals came early on from sloppy play in possession by Arsenal. Antonio Valencia intercepted a poor pass from defender Laurent Koscielny that was meant for wing back Sead Kolasinac. The Ecuadorean quickly drove forward and exchanged passes with Paul Pogba. Valencia struck a low shot that went in between goalkeeper Petr Cech’s legs in the fourth minute.Lingard doubled the lead in the 11th after Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi gave the ball away in United’s half. Anthony Martial flicked on to Lingard in the area and the latter’s effort careened in off a post.“The concentration at the back wasn’t sharp enough at the start,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.Arsenal got back into the match in the 49th when United defender Marcos Rojo tried and failed to play Alexandre Lacazette offside. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey was onside when he touched the ball back to Lacazette who fired it past De Gea.But it was the Spaniard’s quick reflexes that kept his team in the match, especially when he denied Arsenal an equalizer with a double save in the 57th from Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez.Mourinho sarcastically referred to Lacazette’s presence on the pitch, because before the match Wenger said the forward would most definitely not be available because of a groin injury on Wednesday.ADVERTISEMENT Emotional Tabal makes history, wins 5th straight Milo Marathon It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard, second left, scores his side’s third goal of the game against Arsenal during the English Premier League soccer match at the Emirates Stadium, London, Saturday Dec. 2, 2017. (Adam Davy/PA via AP)LONDON — Jesse Lingard scored twice for Manchester United and goalkeeper David de Gea pulled off a string of stunning saves in a 3-1 win over Arsenal to keep pace in the English Premier League race on Saturday.The result left United in second place behind Manchester City before both teams meet next week.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny LATEST STORIES Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “I congratulate Arsenal’s medical department for taking a player that was a ‘no’ to a full 90 minutes,”Mourinho said. “Amazing.”But the home side’s optimism for a comeback was then snuffed out in the 63rd when United hit Arsenal on the break.Pogba drove forward into the box and held off Koscielny to pull back a pass for Lingard, who converted an easy tap-in.Pogba was sent off for stamping on Hector Bellerin’s leg which means the Frenchman will miss the Manchester derby.The scoreline flattered United with Arsenal playing with verve and pummeling De Gea’s goal. Arsenal had 33 shots on goal, with 15 on target, while United had eight shots with four on target.It was a statistic that upset Wenger, who lamented missed chances.“I’m just disappointed and angry that with the quality of that performance we have nothing to show for it,” he said, attributing his team’s loss to a lack of efficiency in finishing and De Gea’s “outstanding game.”It was Mourinho’s first away victory in 11 games against the “Big Six” and the first home loss for the Gunners after winning their last 12.
