Striker has offer from Man United – Wants two more years…

first_imgCavani has been heavily linked with a move away from PSG for the past few weeks, having managed only 11 appearances in all competitions this season.A host of teams are said to be interested in his signature, but none more so than Atlético, who are on the hunt for a striker to replace the injured Diego Costa.There is interest from England too, and yesterday we covered a report from L’Equipe that stated Manchester United and Chelsea had ‘positioned’ themselves to sign him on a free transfer this summer, with United ‘making eyes’ at him.Embed from Getty ImagesThat’s backed up by journalist Josep Pederol today, according to Marca, who told El Chiringuito that Cavani has an offer from Manchester United on the table.Pederol does not offer up any information about what Manchester United’s offer looks like, however, just that they, Arsenal and Inter Milan have all sent proposals.They are behind Atlético, though, with club chief Miguel Ángel Gil Marīn meeting Cavani in Pari last Saturday and PSG chief Leonardo on Sunday to discuss a move.According to the report, Cavani has made it clear he would like at least two more years playing in Europe so he can play in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 so wants a contract to reflect that.He has also made it clear that should Atlético’s bid match that, he would prefer to play under Diego Simeone ahead of anyone else, seemingly putting United further down the queue at this moment in time.This could all be a plan to pressure the Spanish side into offering more money.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

Then last week they captured a Class B district championship.On Thursday the Trojans took it a step further, beating Grant in three straight sets to capture a Class B regional championship at Orchard View High School.Fruitport’s Kalley Carmean goes up for the set. Photo/Leo ValdezThe set scores were 25-19, 25-15 and 25-8. It was the team’s first regional championship since 2011.Now Fruitport advances to Tuesday’s state quarterfinals against Cadillac at Mason County Central High School. The winner will play in the Class B state semifinals three days later.Suddenly the young Trojans, with just one senior on the roster, are on the verge of making it to the state Final Four.“It’s kind of like a dream situation, to be honest,” said Fruitport Coach Nicole Bayle, whose team improved to 35-17-4 on the season.“This junior class has been really strong since they were young, and they are learning now that it’s different to be able to win and succeed at the varsity level.“They are learning the lessons of putting in the extra effort and making those impact plays to win a game.”The Trojans were led by Kylie Oberlin with 13 kills while Rachel Paulsen added 10 kills and five digs. Kailey Carmean chipped in with 36 assists, three aces and eight digs and Trinity Busscher led defensively with 16 digs.The teams played to a 12-12 in the first set, before the Trojans took control with a 13-7 run. Paulsen scored five points up front while Oberlin added four.Fruitport Coach Nicole Bayle talks with her team during a break in the action. Photo/Leo ValdezFruitport followed the same script in the second set, breaking a 12-12 deadlock with a 13-3 run that was sparked by a long service run by Carmean.The Trojans dominated the final set from start to finish, jumping out to a 10-5 lead before closing the match on a 15-3 tear.“I have learned as a coach to be patient with them until they get to 10 points,” said Bayle about her team’s so-so start in the first two sets. “It takes them a little time to get settled in and to gain confidence to roll.“Right now, I am focused on tomorrow. The future is exciting to me, but now it’s one step at a time for us, and I need to be the best coach I can be for them to be prepared for Tuesday.”Grant, which finished its season with an outstanding 43-13-5 record, was led by Taylor Wegener with nine kills, Jill Arends with 13 digs and Nicole Wahn with 26 assists.“I didn’t feel like we passed the ball well for some reason,” said Grant coach Kristin Keelean. “No pass, no hit, no win.“The future is still bright for Grant volleyball and this loss makes my team hungry for next season.” DEAL OF THE DAY Add Comments (Max 320 characters) ENDS IN × Displayed poorly Not relevant Other ENDS IN DEAL OF THE DAY Report a problem This item is… Add Comments (Max 320 characters) × × Displayed poorly Inappropriate / Offensive Report a problem This item is… DEAL OF THE DAY DEAL OF THE DAY The Fruitport bench erupts after a play.

LeBron scores 46 as Cavs force Game 7 in Boston

first_img(Reuters) LeBron James’ 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists Friday night carried the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, tying the Eastern Conference finals at 3-3. Game 7 of the series is tonight in Boston, with the winner meeting either Houston or Golden State in the NBA Finals.“Feels good just to be able to play for another game,” James said after the game. “I’ve always said Game 7 is the best two hours in sports, so let’s go have fun with it.”George Hill enjoyed his best game of the series for the Cavaliers with 20 points, while reserve Jeff Green chipped in 14 and Larry Nance Jr. hit for 10 points. They helped make up for the loss of forward Kevin Love, who lasted five minutes before leaving with a possible concussion after a collision with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum. Terry Rozier pumped in six 3-pointers and led Boston with 28 points while Jaylen Brown gunned in 27. Tatum finished with 15 but was largely a non-entity during the first half. Reserves Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart scored 10 points each.“This troupe’s resilient,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters postgame. “We’ll be ready to go on Sunday.”Cleveland led for most of the last 2 1/2 quarters, although the Celtics made things interesting in the fourth quarter when they cut the deficit to seven on multiple occasions. But James drilled back-to-back 3-pointers in a 43-second span to up the lead to 107-96 and quash remaining suspense. “Does that ever come into our minds? Yeah, like every time we’re out there,” Stevens said of James’ greatness. “Best player in the game, special night tonight. I can’t say enough good things about him.”The Cavaliers also dominated the glass and reaped the benefits at the foul line. Cleveland finished with a 44-31 advantage in rebounding, including 15-5 on the offensive boards, and went 18-of-22 at the stripe. Boston was a poor 11-of-20 at the line.The Celtics actually got off to a good start, unlike one-sided Game 3 and 4 losses in Cleveland. Brown lit it up with 15 first-quarter points, converting a pullup jumper with 8.3 seconds remaining that put Boston ahead 25-20. Things turned for good in the second quarter, when the Celtics could only manage 18 points. James’ floater with 21.8 seconds remaining wrapped up a 25-point half and helped usher the Cavaliers into the locker room with a 54-43 advantage.“Been fortunate enough to play some good basketball through my career,” James said. “Hopefully, I’ll get myself in a position to play great once again on Sunday.”last_img read more

Silverstone open to hosting two races without spectators

first_imgLONDON, (Reuters) – Silverstone would be willing to host an unprecedented two successive grands prix without spectators to help Formula One fight back from the coronavirus crisis, circuit boss Stuart Pringle said yesterday. The season has yet to start but the Liberty Media-owned sport’s management are hoping to get going in the European summer with a revised and reduced schedule that could run into next year.Pringle told the Guardian newspaper that he had discussed “all sorts of permutations” with Formula One, including two races over the same weekend or consecutive weekends at the British track.No circuit has ever hosted two races in succession in the same season. “I have complete confidence in our ability to put on these events. We have a lot of experience, a lot of knowledge, we can turn that on definitely,” said Pringle.While some countries are starting to ease strict lockdown conditions imposed to tackle the coronavirus crisis, events involving large crowds of people are likely to remain banned for some time.Official guidance in Britain is for people to stay at home and to practice social distancing if they do have to go outside. Every race on the original F1 calendar has been cancelled or called off up to the French Grand Prix at Le Castellet on June 28, but that is also expected to be postponed. That would leave Austria on July 5, at a circuit owned by energy drink Red Bull who have two F1 teams, two weeks before the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.“I think F1 will make a calendar-wide decision in the earlier part of May,” said Pringle, whose circuit drew the biggest crowd of any last year and is a short drive from seven of the 10 teams’ headquarters.Silverstone also hosted the first world championship grand prix in 1950. “They can’t set this ball rolling unless they have a solution that stands a fighting chance of running successfully over multiple races,” said Pringle.“That timescale would suit us if we didn’t have to put in the infrastructure for accommodating the public.”McLaren boss Zak Brown told the BBC last week that all races in Europe could be held without spectators and with numbers on site kept to a minimum. “Everything is very tentative but (the British Grand Prix) would go on its scheduled date but closed to fans,” said the American.“In fact, it looks like possibly all the European rounds will most likely be in that scenario.“With now our condensed schedule, what’s the best way to get as much racing done as possible? One of the ideas is potentially (to have) multiple events at the same location, Silverstone being one of those.”last_img read more

Cricket Australia hopeful of Windies tour amidst COVID-19 threat

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia,  CMC – Cricket Australia have pencilled West Indies into its summer programme and says they are confident they can pull off the itinerary amidst the threat posed by the COVID-19 global pandemic. In the itinerary released yesterday, Cricket Australia have scheduled the Windies for three Twenty20 Internationals from October 4-9, with India to follow immediately afterwards in another three-match series.The games represent part of Australia’s preparation for the T20 World Cup set to bowl off here from October 18 to November 15 but which remains under a cloud due to the coronavirus outbreak.Cricket Australia chief executive, Kevin Roberts, said the governing body had been encouraged by the way authorities here had managed the pandemic. “While acknowledging the difficulty in navigating a global pandemic, we are nonetheless encouraged by the progress Australia is making in combatting the coronavirus and the positive impact that is having on our ability to host an exciting summer of cricket in 2020-21,” Roberts said.  “We know that circumstances or events beyond our control could mean that the final schedule potentially may look different to the one released today, but we’ll be doing everything we can to get as much international cricket in as possible this summer. We will communicate any changes to the schedule if or when they are required.”No cricket has been staged globally in nearly three months after governments across the world scrambled to lock down their respective borders, to mitigate against the spread of the virus. Australia was among the first countries to initiate lockdowns back in March and Prime Minister Scott Morrison said this week the borders were unlikely to reopen “anytime soon”.The country has recorded 7 155 infections and 103 deaths.Roberts said Cricket Australia’s summer programme, which also includes a one-day series against Zimbabwe in August and a women’s one-day and T20 series against neighbouring New Zealand in September/October, would only go ahead once the environment remained safe. “We are engaged in ongoing discussions with federal and state governments, our venues and the touring nations to continually understand and monitor the situation in front of us, which is evolving every day,” he explained.“We’ll continue to act in accordance with public health advice and government protocols to ensure the safety of the public, players and support staff.”last_img read more

#WNSTSweet16 Best Local Sports Playoff Moments

first_imgAfter celebrating the greatest debuts in local sports history to kick off our #WNSTSweet16 discussion topics in 2014, it’s time to look back at the greatest local sports playoff moments that continue to stay with us no matter how long ago they occurred.From the Colts, Orioles, and Ravens to the University of Maryland and local college lacrosse, there’s no shortage of playoff moments to consider as we look back at more than 60 years of big-league sports as well as other professional teams, collegiate history, and high school athletics in the area that go back even longer in some cases. Trying to narrow the list to just 16 was a daunting task itself with no disrespect intended to a slew of local playoff moments that didn’t make the cut.In trying to pare down the list, two questions kept ringing in my mind: How did this moment make you feel? Did this moment resonate with most sports fans in the area? Admittedly, these questions make it extremely difficult for local college and high school moments to crack the list as even a number of memorable Colts, Orioles, and Ravens playoff moments failed to make the cut.Some moments are centered around individual late-game heroics while others are the culmination of a dominating performance by a team on their way to championship glory.We’ve been discussing the topic on AM 1570 WNST and on social media for the last couple days and will continue to do so.Here’s the list of the WNST Sweet 16 Best Local Sports Playoff Moments:16. Coppin State knocks off No. 2 seed South Carolina in the 1997 NCAA TournamentYou probably can’t name a single player from Fang Mitchell’s 1997 squad that became just the third No. 15 seed to win an NCAA tournament game, but it’s a moment worth including as Coppin State knocked off heavily-favored South Carolina in a convincing 78-65 final in Pittsburgh.The 30-point underdogs were led by Danny Singletary and Antoine Brockington, who combined to score 42 points to outplay the Gamecocks’ formidable trio of BJ McKie, Larry Davis, and Melvin Watson. The Eagles would go on to fall by a single point to Texas in the second round of the tournament.With college basketball possessing arguably the greatest playoff tournament of them all, Coppin State garnered national attention as one of the best examples of a true underdog triumphing in the history of Baltimore sports.Continue to next page for No. 15last_img read more

Rocking at 50: Rolling Stones to tour again

first_imgLONDON | You can’t always get what you want — but if your desire is to attend a Rolling Stones concert this might be your lucky day.The legendary band said Monday it would return to the stage this year with four concerts in Britain and the U.S. The shows will take place on Nov. 25 and 29 at London’s O2 Arena, followed by gigs on Dec. 13 and 15 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, just outside of New York.This Thursday, July 12, 2012 file photo shows, from left, Charlie Watts, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Mick Jagger, from the British Rock band, The Rolling Stones, as they arrive at a central London venue, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones first performance. The legendary band said Monday it would return to the stage this year with four concerts in New York and London. The shows mark the first time in five years at the Stones have performed live, with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood all coming together once more. (AP Photo/Jonathan Short)The shows mark the first time in five years that the Stones have performed live, with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood all coming together once more. The band said it was the “crowning glory” of celebrations marking its 50th anniversary of its first gig.“Everybody loves a celebration, and London and New York are two good places to do it in!” Jagger said in a statement.The Stones have sold more than 200 million records, with hits including “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” ”Street Fighting Man” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”But in recent years much of their income has come from touring. Their last global tour, “A Bigger Bang,” earned more than $500 million between 2005 and 2007.Their legions of fans will hear era-defining tracks such as “Gimme Shelter,” ”Jumping Jack Flash,” ”Tumbling Dice,” ”It’s Only Rock and Roll,” plus a few surprises and other classics from GRRR!, the multiformat album coming out in November.“GRRR!” is a greatest hits collection that includes two new songs “Doom and Gloom” and “One More Shot,” recorded recently in Paris — the first new recordings since the 2005 album “A Bigger Bang.”The band promises an all-new, custom-built set design, featuring the tongue and floppy lip logo, that will “reach out into the crowd.”The tour comes despite some famously testy times.Richards and Jagger have been creative catalysts and sparring partners — sentiments aggravated two years ago when Richards published his autobiography “Life.”They’ve nonetheless appeared amicably together during events that marked their 50th anniversary. A documentary about the band, “Crossfire Hurricane,” premieres at the London Film Festival on Thursday.In another milestone marking their five decades of music, the Museum of Modern Art in New York will host “The Rolling Stones: 50 Years on Film,” a retrospective chronicling the band from the mid-1960s until today. This exhibition will be open Nov. 15.___All ticketing information is available at www.rollingstones.comlast_img read more

5 ways Prince slammed high tech in music

first_imgLOS ANGELES | His Royal Badness didn’t think much of the Internet — or iPhones, for that matter. And his once iconoclastic attitude toward the modern music industry helped inspire other artists to resist technological innovators such as Spotify.Prince was adamant about protecting his copyrights. He owned the song publishing rights to his music and vigorously pursued online outlets that used it without permission. That’s why it’s been tough to find many of his songs on outlets like YouTube following his death on Thursday.Today, many artists are pursuing a similar path, determined to control where their music goes and insisting on getting paid when it’s online. That’s why artists like Taylor Swift and Adele put some songs on Spotify, but not their recent albums or back catalogs, which they reserve for paying customers on other services.“You’ve had everything from The Beatles not wanting to be on iTunes to the most recent spate of exclusives on Apple and Tidal,” says Russ Crupnick, managing partner of research firm MusicWatch. “If you’re a top tier artist … you can afford to be a lot more particular.”For his latest album, “HITNRUN,” Prince joined many artists in releasing exclusively on Tidal, at least for a brief time window. Others include Kanye West, Rihanna and Beyoncé.Here’s a quick recap of five things Prince said over the years that describe his view of the role of artists in an era of high technology:___“THE INTERNET’S COMPLETELY OVER”In a July 2010 interview with Daily Mirror reporter Peter Willis, Prince says he’s releasing his album “20TEN” to Daily Mirror readers as a CD for free. In the interview, he complains that outlets like iTunes don’t pay advances for music and compares the Internet to a passing fad like MTV.___RINGTONES? UH UHIf you use a Prince song as a ringtone, you should know his Royal Badness did not approve. In a June 2011 interview with The Guardian’s Dorian Lynskey, Prince says he can’t stand digital music, nor the cacophony of ringtones it enables. “Have you ever been in a room where there’s 17 ringtones going off at once?”___DOES HE HAVE AN IPHONE? “HELL, NO”Prince not only disdains the Internet, he forgoes the tools to access it. Asked in a July 2013 story by V Magazine’s Vanessa Grigoriadis if he owns an iPhone, Prince responds : “Are you serious? Hell, no.” He then mimics a high-voiced woman who has lost hers. He also touts the pleasures of listening to Joni Mitchell on vinyl.___THE INTERNET: “WE WERE SAYING IT WAS DEAD TO US — DEAD ENERGY”Prince explains his Internet comment to AP’s Nekesa Mumbi Moody in an exclusive interview at his Paisley Park compound in September 2014, even as he queues up songs on YouTube from artists such as James Brown and FKA Twigs. At the time, his music is on both iTunes and Spotify. Today, major artists from Taylor Swift to Adele to Kanye West are picking and choosing where their music is released, just as Prince did.___“SPOTIFY WASN’T PAYING, SO YOU GOTTA SHUT IT DOWN”In an interview with Ebony’s Miles Marshall Lewis published in December, Prince explains why he’s removing his music from most streaming services and putting it all on Tidal. But the magazine removed the interview at Prince’s request, according to Billboard ; all that remains on Ebony’s website now is Prince’s insistence that artist ownership of the means of distribution is important. “Where we finally get into a position to run things — we all should help.”___Follow AP Business Writer Ryan Nakashima at https://twitter.com/rnakashi .
