Chelsea player has agreement with club for move – Blues potential…

first_imgThat’s according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, who say Milan are yet to find an agreement with Chelsea over a possible transfer.Bakayoko spent last season on loan with AS Monaco but failed to impress, the French club electing against turning his move into a permanent one.That means he is on the hunt for a new club again this summer, with there seemingly no place for him in Chelsea’s first-team.Milan are keen, Bakayoko’s name having ‘reappeared’ on their radar in recent months following a year-long loan spell at the club back in 2018.Embed from Getty ImagesHe is a midfielder they like, so much so that they have ‘agreed with him’ on his wages should he move to the club this summer.Bakayoko currently earns around €6m a year at Stamford Bridge but has agreed to drop that to €3m a year plus bonuses to try and secure a return to a club where he ‘had a good time’.Milan, though, still need to find an agreement with Chelsea. The Blues paid €40m for Bakayoko three years ago, and while some of that has been amortised, they will set an asking price that ‘allows a capital gain’.Gazzetta believe this will be around €20m, which would be too much for Milan who will ‘certainly talk’ if that can be reduced to €15m.Thus, they need to ‘tackle the Chelsea rock’ to discover if there are ‘alternative solutions’, for example, a loan with a right to buy.Whether that would suit Chelsea, who have already spent big on the likes of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech this summer, isn’t mentioned.But, with an agreement already in place over wages, Milan certainly have one foot in the door to getting to Bakayoko back this Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoDassault SystèmesUnlock Industry 4.0 data for better mass customization resultsDassault SystèmesUndoDBS”I had S$9 left in my bank account”DBSUndoWealthMastery.asiaThis Singaporean Couple is Disrupting A $3 Trillion IndustryWealthMastery.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoSingtelGet 30GB for $25 on SG’s #1 network.SingtelUndoGOMO by Singtel.Switch to GOMO. 40GB for $20 for 12 months!GOMO by Singtel.UndoSingtel PowerInstant savings and a $50 rebate.Singtel PowerUndo Chelsea midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko has agreed on personal terms with AC Milan ahead of a possible move to the Serie A side this summer.last_img read more

The winner will play for a state championship on Saturday against the survivor of the Lake Odessa Lakewood-Livonia Ladywood semifinal.“When these kids were in the fifth and sixth grade, they were major fans of those 2010 and 2011 teams,” Bayle said about her current players. “They came to all the games and were excited to watch them play. They’ve had the volleyball bug for a lot of years.”Trinity Busscher prepares to serve for Fruitport. Photo/Leo ValdezBayle has watched a lot of girls come up through the Fruitport system, reach varsity and maintain the proud tradition of Trojan volleyball.She was an assistant coach from 2004 to 2008, and got a taste of what it takes to coach a state champion when the Trojans won it all in 2005.She became head coach in the fall of 2008, when volleyball switched from a winter to fall schedule. Her teams won state titles in 2010 and 2011.Her team hasn’t been back to the Final Four since then. But now the little girls who dreamed of being state champions are all grown up and on the court, and the Trojans are shooting for the top again.“To be able to play in (the final four) again, I don’t have words for it,” Bayle said in the minutes following the quarterfinal win on Tuesday. “It’s awesome.”Fruitport is led by three big hitters – juniors Kylie Oberlin (397 kills), Rachel Paulsen (379) and Jordyn Carlyle (349).Trinity Busscher has served 67 aces, and Kailey Carmean has set up the Trojan attack with 1,446 assists.Defensively, Oberlin has 57 blocks while Busscher has 711 digs.For a lot of observers, Fruitport’s run through the state tournament is coming a year sooner than expected. The Trojans only have one senior on the squad, and all but three players are new to varsity this season.No. 7 Kailey Carmean sets up No. 9 Jordyn Carlyle during Fruitport’s quarterfinal win. Photo/Leo ValdezThey were good during the regular season, winning the Greater Muskegon Athletic Association City Tournament and battling for the championship in the challenging O-K Black Conference.But they dropped their final regular-season match in a conference showdown with Jenison, and lost a chance to share the conference title with the Wildcats.After that match, the Trojans hardly seemed like a tee am ready to challenge for a state title.But Bayle thinks the loss to Jenison may have been a blessing in disguise.“I knew we had a lot to bounce back from,” the coach said. “But having a little hiccup toward the end of the season can help kids get refocused. It was a good reminder for them about all the things we’d been saying to them about focus and intensity.”The Trojans plowed through districts with a lot of intensity, defeating O-K Blue Conference co-champion Spring Lake in the first round, Orchard View in the semifinals and West Michigan Conference champion Whitehall in the district finals.Then came regionals, when the Trojans beat O-K Blue co-champion Grand Rapids Catholic in the semifinals and Grant in the finals.Fruitport Coach Nicole Bayle talks with her team during a time out in the quarterfinals. Photo/Leo ValdezOn Tuesday Fruitport looked shaky at times, falling behind early in every set, before rallying to beat Cadillac in four sets and cement their spot in the state Final Four.The Trojans have only lost three of 21 sets in the tournament.“The big thing is they needed to learn is that the type of play it takes, and making the commitment to improve, is not easy,” Bayle said. “It takes a lot of hard work. In the last three or four weeks those are things they have really started to embrace. That’s why you’ve seen such a huge change on the court.”Standing in the Trojans way in the semifinals will be Pontiac Notre Dame Prep. The powerful Irish, who were ranked No. 1 in the final regular season Class B state poll, are 62-2-2 on the season and advanced to the semifinals with an easy three-set quarterfinal win over Corunna.Notre Dame Prep features two powerful six-foot hitters, Natalie Risi and Madeline Chinn, who have been ranked among the top 25 players in Michigan.“They’re a good team,” Bayle said. “They have really good offensive attackers and they’re solid at pretty much every position. For us that just means we have to be intentional about scoring and executing, and will have to work hard to fire on all cylinders and keep them off their game.“If we can force them to struggle in serve-receive and get them out of their system, I think we have a good chance to upset a great volleyball team.” DEAL OF THE DAY Bestseller (8133) Not relevant Inappropriate / Offensive Thank you!

Mills: Ghana will win World Cup

first_imgGhana’s desire to win for the first time, an African World Cup gold was trumpeted loudest on Thursday, with President John Atta Mills leading a mass chant that South Africa 2010 must be the golden moment.Moments after unveiling the FIFA World Cup Trophy and hoisting it in front of dignitaries from FIFA, Coca-Cola and the local football fraternity, President Mills announced; “I would want to say something to FIFA; I’m giving this trophy back to you, but it’s on loan. After the World Cup it’s going to come back here,” he said to wild cheers at the Osu Castle Gardens in Accra where the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola made a colourful stop.After thanking Coca-Cola and FIFA for making it possible for many Ghanaians and indeed Africans to see the world’s most prestigious football prize, (the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour will go through all 54 African countries), the President then invited two men (Drs Afeke and Nii Amu-Darko) to pray for Ghana’s success at the World Cup, and also a win on Friday for the Black Satellites against Brazil in the finals of the FIFA U-20 Championship in Egypt.Supported by Messrs Emmanuel Maradas, a member of the FIFA Media Committee who is also spokesman for the Trophy tour and Curtis A. Ferguson, President of Coca-Cola’s North and West Africa Business Unit, President Mills said “I want to tell you that after the World Cup, we will invite you here and display the cup also here”. He had had to truncate activities on the first day of a three-day ‘thank you’ tour of the Eastern Region, explaining that when football calls, its powerful attraction is hardly resistible.Football is also unifying, he said, explaining that there were many in the audience who would have found it difficult to honour an invitation by him to visit the Castle, but were there because of football.“I’m grateful to Coca-Cola and FIFA for designating Ghana as a platinum market and also giving our brother and sisters on the continent an opportunity to see the World Cup. Indeed football has done a lot for us and is going to do even more for us. All of us here are united and in unity lies strength.”last_img read more

All Blacks coach dismisses England spy claim as ‘clickbait’

first_imgAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen dismissed England counterpart Eddie Jones’ spying claims as a “clickbait distraction” ahead of Saturday’s Rugby World Cup semi-final.Most leading nations keep their practice secret, with strict limits on who is allowed into the ground to ensure opponents can’t get inside information ahead of a game.Jones alleged Tuesday that an unknown cameraman had filmed them, but Hansen was quick to shrug that off.“Hell of a good bloke, very good coach,” a smiling Hansen said of Jones on Thursday.“Eddie and I both know it’s all fair in love and war.“And Eddie knows that in a time of war you throw out a bit of distraction for you guys (media) to deal with. It’s the best clickbait in the world: someone is spying on us.”Hansen added that Jones had not pointed the finger at the All Blacks.“He didn’t say it was us. He was very deliberate in not doing that. He talked about it being someone else, probably the same bloke who videoed us when we were there,” he said.“But everyone has jumped on it and got the clickbait going.“It’s a mind game only if you buy into it. It’s allowed us to have a good laugh. We’re not buying into it.”Hansen admitted Jones had contacted him — but not to discuss spying.“He has been in touch with me but not about those claims,” he said. “We have had a few laughs about other things.”Hansen added that the All Blacks had it all to do in Yokohama against an England side he said had been a “marvellous team in periods in the last four years”.“We are really looking forward to playing them, as are they us. These are the moments the players and staff want to be involved in — the big games.“Viewers can get excited about it and hopefully the game can live up to the hype and expectations so we can send our message around the world.”While the All Blacks are double defending champions, having won the World Cup in 2015 and 2011, Hansen warned against the mindset of 2007, when, as massive favourites, New Zealand were toppled by France in the quarter-finals.“Sometimes people will come off the euphoria of winning the quarter-final and start looking ahead to the final,” he said.“That is a mistake we have made in the past. We may have even done it in 2007 looking beyond the quarter-final. If you start looking beyond where we’re at then your mind isn’t where your feet are and that makes you vulnerable.”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

Volk fires second 66 to claim Salt Lake City Open

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — Dustin Volk won the biggest tournament of his life when he captured the Salt Lake City Open Sunday at Wingpointe Golf Course.Volk fired a 6-under par 66 to go with 66 a day earlier at Bonneville to finish at 132, one shot ahead of first-day leader Chris Moody.The 36-year-old Volk has been an assistant pro at Davis Park Golf Course for 10 years and has won various tournaments, including the professional match play tournament twice. But Sunday’s win topped them all.”This is my best,” said Volk. “This would be the biggest because of the quality of the field.”Moody had started the day with a one-stroke lead over Volk after shooting a 65 at Bonneville on Saturday.But Volk got off to a quick start, making birdies on four of the first five holes. By the time they made the turn, Volk was two strokes up on Moody.At 12, Volk got in trouble off the tee, but his second shot bounced off the flagstick and ended up 18 inches away. Then he birdied the par-5 15th to go two up on Moody, only to lose a shot when Moody birdied 16.Then at 17, the tournament nearly turned when Volk sent his long birdie putt five feet past, while Moody had a 12-foot birdie try. However Moody missed his putt and Volk sank his testy par putt to stay one ahead.At 18 Volk hit his wedge shot within 10 feet and only had to two-putt when Moody’s 30-footer slid past. Afterward Volk accepted the $3,000 first-place check and trophy from tournament sponsor Burton Lumber.For Moody, an assistant at Riverside Country Club, it was a “frustrating” day as he finished second in the tournament for the second time, five years after losing in a playoff.”I hit some good shots, but it wasn’t my day,” he said. “Some putts just didn’t fall.”Defending champion Boyd Summerhays tied for third at 137 with Zach Johnson, Luke Swilor and amateur Dan Horner.Horner, the 2008 State Amateur champion, won the low amateur trophy after shooting a 65 and finished one shot better than Kirk Siddens, who added a 71 to his opening-round 67.Casey Fowles tied Siddens at 138 and four golfers, Jimmy Blair, Pete Stone, Adrian Wadey and amateur Cameron Crawford tied at 139. Blair won senior honors by two over Nevada golfer Tom Storey.Larry Shenk won the first flight gross at 147, while Ben Peterson won the net at 122.Salt Lake City Open resultsWingpointe Golf Course132 — Dustin Volk (66-66)133 — Chris Moody (65-68)137 — Zach Johnson (69-68), Boyd Summerhays (68-69), Luke Swilor (67-70), a-Dan Horner (72-65)138 — Casey Fowles (70-68), a-Kirk Siddens (67-71)139 — Jimmy Blair (69-70), Pete Stone (70-69), Adrian Wadey (70-69), a-Cameron Crawford (72-67)140 — Dave DeSantis (71-69), Ryan Rhees (73-67), Chris Gresh (69-71), Troy Watkins (68-72), a-Jeff Jolley (72-68), a-Josh White (70-70)141 — Tom Storey (70-71), Matt Baird (68-73), a-Tommy Sharp (72-69), a-Keaton Woodland (68-73)142 — a- Mike Branca (72-70), a-Scott Clark (72-70), a-Joe Parkinson (75-67)e-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Manchester City’s plan to sign Juventus defender Bonucci

first_img Miki Soria Now, with it impossible to sign Laporte, ‘Option Bonucci’ has been activated by City. After a first bid of around 46 million euros was rejected by the Italian side, Guardiola has spoken with the player to explain his interest in having him on board this coming season.  CEST With Stones, the transfer is following the expected direction. City have an agreement with the player and the English defender has asked Everton to let him leave if a suitable offer arrives, which should happen sooner or later. Laporte’s renewal with Athletic, though, ruined City’s plans. Plan A was over and they had to look for an alternative. That’s where Leonardo Bonucci’s name comes into play.  08/07/2016 Pep Guardiola had a plan when he arrived at Manchester City. His team needed two centre-backs and the first two names quickly became clear: John Stones and Aymeric Laporte. The profiles of the two players were obvious: young with top level experience, good on the ball, reliable… a series of conditions which made them more than adequate for a team playing in Guardiola’s style.  The Juventus defender has developed into one of Europe’s best central defenders in recent years and he demonstrated that point during Euro 2016. Not just because of his reliability in defence, but also because of his movement of the ball, as witnessed in Italy’s first goal against Belgium, when he set up Giaccherini with a pass from over 40 yards. Guardiola’s followed him with interest in recent months and praised him publicly after Bayern beat Juve in the Champions League.  Upd. at 19:25 In this sense, City hope that Bonucci will ask Juventus to facilitate his exit from the club for an amount which benefits both parties. If the first offer was 46 million euros, a second of between 50 million and 60 million euros could prove definitive. Juve need the money, Bonucci is 29 and he’s easier to replace than Paul Pogba or Paulo Dybala. In fact, the arrival of Medhi Benatia, who has been linked with the Turin club, would serve to fill the gap.last_img read more

Colts, Blue Devils prove they’re Shore’s best

first_img BY DOUG McKENZIE Staff Writer Top-ranked teams continue dominance with SCT title BY DOUG McKENZIEStaff Writer CHRIS KELLY staff Shore Regional’s TIffany Newenhouse and RBC’s Erin Rigby battle for a loose ball during the Shore Conference Tournament final at Monmouth University on May 17. All season long, the CBA boys and Shore Regional girls have looked like the Shore Conference’s top teams. Last week, they both proved that is precisely what they are. On Wednesday, the Blue Devils made their top seed stand up by beating Red Bank Catholic, 10-6, to capture their fourth Shore Conference Tournament crown at Monmouth University. Then on Friday, the Colts remained unbeaten against conference foes this year by beating Rumson-Fair Haven, 4-1, to claim their second SCT title. CBA, who also won last year’s inaugural boys SCT, broke a scoreless tie in the second quarter when Jon Lubas registered a hat trick. His first goal came with 7:12 left off a pass from Alex DeAlmeida, while Liam Thomas assisted on Lubas’ second goal with 4:49 remaining. The final tally came with 3:56 left, unassisted. Rumson, a third-year program that entered the contest on the heels of a 13-game winning streak, got its goal in the third quarter when John Gasienica took a pass from Clark McIntyre and put the ball in the net with 6:56 left. But CBA (13-5) responded with its final goal with 9:48 left in the final quarter when Thomas scored off a Josh Orchant pass. With the win, the Colts earned the first of what they hope will be two tournament crowns. On Saturday, they will open their Non-Public A state tournament crown with a matchup with Bergen Catholic. The Colts are the third seed, with Bergen Catholic getting the sixth seed. Delbarton is the bracket’s top seed, followed by Seton Hall Prep. Rumson-Fair Haven opens its Group I tournament run with a game against Caldwell today, with the winner to get either third-seeded Summit or 14th-seeded Jefferson. Shore Regional wrapped up its fourth SCT title early on, using a dominant effort in the first half. Kelly Draper got things started with a goal at the 24:10 mark. Ali Houlis then added goals at the 15:45 and 9:54 marks, before Jenna Martino made it 4-0 with 7:02 left. Following an RBC time out, Shore added two more goals (from Draper and Houls) to head into the break with a 6-0 lead. RBC (18-2) got in the board with a Lindsey DeMarco goal with 23:58 left in the game, only to see the Blue Devils respond with consecutive goals from Danielle Scarrone. With an 8-1 lead, Shore was in complete command, although to their credit, the Caseys kept coming before running out of time. The Blue Devils, who were making their fifth straight SCT final appearance, enjoyed their first title win over a Monmouth County team, having beaten Jackson in its first three title-clinching wins. Now, Shore has its sights set on a South B state title. The Blue Devils are the top seed, and as such got a first-round bye. That means a second-round matchup with 16th-seeded St. John Vianney later today. The Lancers (9-7) got a hard-fought 9-8 win over New Egypt on Saturday to advance, as Helen Kerrisk’s goal with just over four minutes left to play broke an 8-8 tie. Kerrisk finished with two goals, while Jess Wegelin had a team-high four tallies. Goalie Staci Shalkowski, who finished with 12 saves, came up big in the final minute, when she made a couple of clutch saves in the face of a furious Warrior attack. Red Bank Catholic is the third seed in South B, and will take on 14th-seeded Red Bank Regional today in the second round. RBR beat No. 19 seed Allentown, 9-5, on Saturday as Brie Moran led the Buc attack with five goals. Rumson-Fair Haven, the fourth seed, will take on 13th-seeded Manasquan today in the second round after both teams got a first-round bye. In the South A bracket, the Ocean Township Spartans were eliminated by Central, 12-9, on Saturday, ending their season at 12-8-1.last_img read more

Real and Barca replace United as top earning clubs

first_imgReal Madrid and Barcelona were the highest earning clubs in European football last season, knocking Manchester United off top spot, according to the latest Deloitte ‘Football Money League’ published on Thursday.Deloitte based their survey of the top 20 earning clubs in Europe on the annual financial statements of the company or group running each club, or other direct sources, covering the 2017/18 season.Real returned to top spot for the first time since 2014/15 with revenues of 750.9 million euros. Their revenue increased by more than 75 million euros year-on-year as they secured their third successive Champions League title.Deloitte said the rise was “primarily due to commercial growth of 54.8 million euros including an uplift in sponsorship, merchandising and exploitation of increasingly lucrative pre-season fixtures.”Dan Jones, partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte said: “Real Madrid’s outstanding financial performance in 2017/18 is built on their long history of success on the pitch, most recently three consecutive Champions League titles.“This has enabled the club to continue to drive commercial revenue as the appetite to partner with Europe’s most successful clubs remains stronger than ever,” he added.Barcelona had earnings of 690.4 million euros, a rise from 648.3 million in the previous year.Manchester United, who topped last year’s table, saw their revenue calculation fall slightly to 666 million euros from 676.3 million but they are one of a record six Premier League teams in top 10.Football finance expert Rob Wilson, of Sheffield Hallam University, said United’s drop to third in the rankings was expected.“This was predictable mainly due to the timing of commercial and sponsorship renewals. The big ticket items; shirt manufacturing and shirt sponsorship being renewed and improving the overall position of a number of clubs.“MUFC don’t go back to the negotiating table for a while yet. Expect them to stay off the top spot for a good few years yet, particularly with a possible reduction in matchday revenue if they miss out on qualification to the Champions League.”United’s position was also affected by exchange rates as their actual revenue measured in pounds sterling rose slightly from 581.2 million to 590 million.The club is rated the number one football brand by KPMG and the most valuable club by Forbes.There are no Italian clubs in the top 10 with Juventus slipping to 11th place, while Bayern Munich are the sole German club.last_img read more
