Man Utd, Arsenal & Spurs in £25m transfer battle for Juventus flop Emre Can

first_imgARSENAL, Manchester United and Tottenham are part of a FIVE-way battle for Juventus midfielder Emre Can, according to reports.The German, 26, moved from Liverpool to the Italian giants in 2018 but has struggled for form and minutes – not helped by needing thyroid surgery months after joining.1 Emre Can is at the centre of a five-way battle for his signatureCredit: GettyHe was left out of the Maurizio Sarri derby as Juventus lost 2-1 to Napoli on Sunday – officially with flu – as Blaise Matuidi, Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentancur started in midfield.Adrien Rabiot came off the bench but Aaron Ramsey was an unused substitute.And now Can is being linked with a return to either the Premier League or the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and former-club Bayern Munich also interested.Can joined Juventus for free and is under contract until 2022 but it is understood his club would be willing to sell for around £25million.According to Bild, Borussia Dortmund are at the front of the queue to land the midfielder.But regardless of where he ends up, Can is likely to need to take a significant pay cut if he does leave Turin.WAGE WARHe is on a reported £260,000 per week which could off potential suitors, with Dortmund willing to pay him £160,000 a week instead.Out of the three Premier League sides, Manchester United are the most in need of another midfielder with Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay injured and Nemanja Matic now 31 and out of contract in the summer.Mikel Arteta is getting plenty out of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira while Matteo Guendouzi also offers another option in a holding midfield role at Arsenal.Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, is without Moussa Sissoko, looks set to sell Victor Wanyama and has publicly criticised record-signing Tanguy Ndombele.Can came through the youth ranks at Bayern Munich but made just seven first-team appearances before joining Bayer Leverkusen in 2013 and Liverpool a year later.And Munich manager Hansi Flick is well aware of what Can could add to his side.Latest transfer newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeGossipFIT IN HIS BELEArsenal turn attention to Lyon striker Dembele as Lacazette replacementGossipGUNNER MAKE A MOVEArsenal weighing up transfer move for Barcelona star RafinhaHe said: “As long as the transfer window is open, a lot can still happen.”I was there at the Under-20 European Championships in Israel in 2013, so I was able to get an idea of ​​him.

Levy asking government to pay Spurs staff after trousering £7m is not a good look

first_imgStill, the wages of affected non-playing staff are small fry in the grand scheme of Premier League finances. Levy’s paymaster, Bahamas-based Spurs owner Joe Lewis — said to have made a significant slice of his £4.35billion fortune by speculating on the 1992 Black Wednesday stock-market crash — could flog a daubing or two from his £1bn art collection to keep his club’s staff on full pay.A decent Picasso is worth around  half of £65m record-signing Tanguy Ndombele on the open market — and Jose Mourinho probably wouldn’t be quite so critical of old Pablo’s brushwork.There was certainly an element of self-interest in Levy’s words — including his attempt to crush all transfer speculation at a time when his talisman, England captain Harry Kane, is openly stating he wants to win trophies sooner rather than later.Levy said: “When I read or hear stories about player transfers this summer like nothing has happened, people need to wake up to the enormity of what’s happening around us.”Yeah, because most of us are carrying on with our lives obliviously, muttering ‘Crisis? What Crisis?’4The current health emergency is devastating and unprecedented.And yet there is cautious optimism among scientists, medics and  the Government that levels of normality may return in June — perhaps even in May.Thereby allowing the remainder of the Premier League season to be played out, behind closed doors, with clubs pocketing their vast TV revenues.All such prediction and speculation is precisely that during such uncertain times.But a summer resumption would suggest there was a touch of hyperbole in Levy’s claim that: “We may be the eighth largest club in the world by revenue according to the Deloitte survey but all that historical data is totally irrelevant as this virus has no boundaries.”You can imagine him using such a line in negotiations with players’ agents and rival clubs as soon as normal life resumes.Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’We have all learned much from this crisis.But in the world of football we have learned that much of what we already suspected is undoubtedly true.Match-going punters will always be the lowest priority, Jack Grealish will always party when he shouldn’t, while Ashley and Levy will always look to save money.Gary Lineker admits Harry Kane is right to think about his future at Tottenham 4FOR the eighth richest football club on Earth to go cap in hand to the Government for help in paying its staff might be seen as a major PR blunder.But for Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy to make such an announcement on the very day his own £7million annual earnings were published makes for a quite staggering misreading of the national mood.⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates4 Daniel Levy has made a serious misjudgement of the public mood with his latest announcementCredit: Rex FeaturesThe arch ball-buster of White Hart Lane never went into football to win popularity contests and now, more than ever, that is just as well.On top of his £4m salary, Spurs’ newly-published accounts revealed Levy trousered a £3m bonus in the last financial year for the completion of a stadium which opened eight months late.A year ago, you might remember, Premier League clubs were squabbling over whether Spurs should be allowed to move into their new home in mid-season as it might compromise the integrity of the competition.Oh for such trivialities to worry about now, as the coronavirus  grips.Spurs were not the first Premier League club to apply for Government cash to pay non-football staff during the sport’s lockdown.With magnificent predictability, Newcastle owner Mike Ashley made the same move 24 hours earlier.Ashley has put all of Newcastle’s non-football staff on furlough and applied for the Government to pay 80 per cent of their wages, up to £2,500 a month.Yet Levy, the league’s highest-paid executive, was hot on the heels of the nation’s least-favourite sportswear salesman.4He handed a 20 per cent pay cut to all 550 of his club’s non-playing staff, using the state’s furlough scheme to pay them ‘where appropriate’.Levy will take a 20 per cent  cut himself. Although that £3m bonus might just keep the wolf from the Spurs chairman’s door.It was a typically forthright and combative statement released by Levy yesterday. And he was absolutely right to call out players and managers, who are yet to agree to an across-the-board pay cut.Levy said: “We hope the discussions between the Premier League, PFA (players’ union) and LMA (managers’ union) will result in players and coaches doing their bit for the football ecosystem.”Talks are ongoing about that issue  — and it will be discussed  at Friday’s Premier League conference call.Though PFA chairman Gordon Taylor is known to be concerned that some clubs might use the health crisis as a convenient excuse to lower wage bills in the long term.But players must, and surely will, do their bit.Levy’s supporters claim yesterday’s statement was a masterstroke, shaming players and managers into accepting the inevitable and taking pay cuts or wage deferrals for the greater good of a game thrown into chaos by the lockdown.CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – BE IN THE KNOWGet the latest coronavirus news, facts and figures from around the world – plus essential advice for you and your family.To receive our Covid-19 newsletter in your inbox every tea time, sign up here.To follow us on Facebook, simply ‘Like’ our Coronavirus page.last_img read more

Man Utd urged to sign Kane as his ‘head’s not in right place’, claims Berbatov

first_imgDIMITAR BERBATOV has called for Harry Kane to follow his example and swap Tottenham for Manchester United.Speculation is mounting around the England captain after he declared that he would not stay in North London “for the sake of it”.3 Real Madrid, Juventus and United are all thought to be keen on KaneCredit: PA:Press Association3 Berbatov made the switch to Manchester on the deadline day of 2008Credit: AP:Associated PressKane is yet to win a major trophy at Tottenham, whose last honour came with Berbatov up front in the 2008 League Cup.And the Bulgarian forward believes there are big similarities between his situation and the 26-year-old’s ahead of the coming transfer market.Recalling his £30million move to Manchester, Berbatov told 5 Live’s Football Daily: “In a way, yes it was [a no-brainer].”I’m from a small country, and I wished to play my whole career in England with one team, but in my case I needed to work and climb my ladder of success – and the final step for me was United.”And when they came of course I knew I would be making people disappointed – especially Tottenham fans – but I was following my own path.”I knew if I missed that chance another one might never come. This is how it is in football.”Sometimes you’ll leave people disappointed because you’re going to follow your own path but it’s a tough decision you need to take to reach the next stage.”The sad thing is in football, because it was established a long time ago with its big clubs, you will always have that situation for Spurs or other teams weaker than Spurs,where their best players are going to ask, ‘Do I stay here or go to a bigger club?’.He’s in the same situation as I was in as he has started asking questions and his head sometimes is maybe not in the right place.”Dimitar Berbatov”The same situation is happening with Harry Kane at the moment, exactly the same.”He’s in the same situation as I was in as he has started asking questions and his head sometimes is maybe not in the right place.”My head was not in the right place, at times. How can it be? I was thinking to myself, ‘What is going on, I don’t want this to happen, I don’t want to put my team in a position where I go late and they don’t have a replacement’.”After leaving White Hart Lane for Old Trafford, Berbatov scooped two Premier League titles, a Club World Cup and another League Cup.However the chances of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side replicating that success is now considerably lower – a point the 39-year-old accepts.United are not the only ones chasing Kane though, with Juventus and Real Madrid reported as interested and Berbatov feels the forward’s performances may drop off is his hunger for trophies goes unsatisfied.He continued: “It was the same with [Christian] Eriksen. He wasn’t there in the last couple of games. I watched the games and I saw that his head was not there.”He wanted to help, trying to help, but when you’re not fully concentrated it’s not going to happen.MAN UTD NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest United newsmost read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him3″Kane is in the same situation.

Odegaard and his return to Madrid: “The plan has not changed”

first_imgMartin Ødegaard is once again in the eye of the hurricane. It does not fail. Real Sociedad plays against Real Madrid, and all the lights point to the Norwegian. This time on the occasion of the quarterfinal match of Santiago Bernabéu. It is the future of the white team and can be its executioner in the Copa del Rey. -It is inevitable to start by asking about his future at Real Madrid. Everyone sees the next course in white …I do not know. I don’t know what people will say. What I can say is that the plan has not changed, it is to stay here what we talked about (two years) because I cannot be happier. I am focused on day to day and nothing has changed the way we face the future.-Play for a long time touched, how are you?I have had knee problems, it is true, but I feel good, getting better every day and I feel that the match came well.-How do you see the tie in the Bernabéu?Well, it is clear that it will be a complicated and difficult game, because we play against a great rival, although we are clear that we can harm any team because we have a lot of level in the team.– Do you think that the defeat in the league can serve you in the Cup? Can be. I remember that we played very well there, especially the first 40 minutes before they marked us. I think we have to leave the same, but then the challenge will be to maintain the same level throughout the game. Because if we do so, I am convinced we have a chance of winning.-Is it a more special tie for you?Nerd. It’s a big tie for everyone, it’s a quarter cup and we’re looking forward to it. It is an important game for me, but especially for the club.-The Real has only eliminated once (1988) Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, can that be repeated?I think so. It is a special game for me and what I want is to pass the tie above all, because for us it is a dream to do something big in the Cup. We face the game with that illusion.-Which Real Del Madrid player worries you most?Luka modric. Because despite being my idol, it’s very good.– What do you think of Zidane’s work?Very good. We have a very good relationship, he trained me in Castilla and then in the first team. He knows a lot about football.– Are you worried that they will charge two games a week?Not at all. At least I love playing two games a week because if it doesn’t get long.-They just suffered a rude error from the VAR, what do you expect from arbitration at the Bernabéu?Let him do it well. Nothing else. You know that I do not like VAR much, the images say that the penalty to Januzaj is clear. But you don’t have to turn it over. The defeat in Leganés very hard, but it wasn’t just for that. Now we can’t think about the past, the good thing is that with so much game we can look forward very quickly.last_img read more

The gaps after a drunkenness are not by oblivion but by the impossibility of generating memories

first_imgDrinking alcohol and not remembering anything when the hangover takes control, or even without a hangover, is one of the most typical symptoms of a binge. Another, less common, is the loss of knowledge due to excessive blood levels of alcohol. But how do they affect our body? Showcase of alcoholic beverages. Image: Reuters Beyond the headache that excesses can lead to with alcohol, neurobiological and psychic consequences must be taken into account. The study ‘Alcoholism; Clinical & Experimental Research ‘(‘ Alcoholism: clinical and experimental research ‘) explains what happens when a person fades after an important intake of this drink – the amount varies depending on the biology of each person. Alcohol directly affects the hippocampus, which is the area of ​​the brain in which memories are generated. Therefore, researchers at the Alcoholism Research Society have discovered that the ‘gaps’ that can occur after a person gets drunk are not due to forgetfulness but to the brain’s inability to generate memories over a period of time. that alcohol intake was already excessive. “Technically, a drunk individual may lose or not lose consciousness for a short time, but the truth is that memories of events are not formed for long periods of time during drunkenness,” says Ausim Azizi, one of the scientists involved in the study also collected in Very interesting.But the loss of consciousness can lead to more serious problems for people, which involve physical conditions – if drunkenness causes us to fall and damage a bone, for example – and mental – psychological damage that can eventually end up in psychological problems.last_img read more
