Ibrahimovic in between signing Milik for Atlético

first_imgLemar must leave firstRecovering the investment that Atlético made for Lemar two years ago seems distant: the Frenchman, Griezmann’s request to stay at the rojiblanco club, cost 70 million, until the arrival of João Félix, the highest investment in history, whereas now it does not exceeds 30 according to the specialized page Transfermakt. But it has a market. Inter wants him, the Premier is looking for him, his departure would fill the red and white piggy bank to be able to undertake that transfer he longs for. The one with Milik’s goals. Ibra has already opened the door at her price … Ibrahimovic’s departure from Milan although a priori sounds like a stumbling block for the rojiblancos interests, the rossoneros They would have Arkadiusz Milik (26 years old) in their sights as a substitute, in reality it may not. Because the departure of Ibra may be a door for Atlético, who also has Milik as his target highlighted in red and bold for next season, as he points out. The uncheck. Simeone wants a goal and the Pole has it. 12 in 22 games this season with Napoli. Following the interest of Milan, De Laurentiis, president of Naples, has put a price on him. 40 million. Affordable for rojiblancos, drowned by the salary limit and forced to sell (Lemar smells like a safe way out) in order to buy. Werner and Milik are currently the forwards on the red and white agenda for next season (In addition to, perhaps, Cavani, who surprisingly from Brazil they put back in the red and white orbit, despite the fact that relations ended broken in the past winter market) in which Atlético yes or yes will incorporate a striker. With Costa’s continuity on the wire (things have not come to him on his return, with numbers very far from those he had in the 2013-14 season), Cholo needs a ‘9’ benchmark and guarantees but at an affordable price. Everton, Tottenham and Sevilla are also teams that crave the Pole.last_img read more

Neymar out for ‘six to eight weeks’

first_img0Shares0000PSG played the last 10 minutes a man down as they had made all their permitted changes before Neymar went offPARIS, France, Feb 28 – Paris Saint-Germain’s hopes of getting Neymar back for their crunch Champions League clash against Real Madrid next week look to be over after the Brazilian’s father claimed the player would be out for “at least six weeks”.Speaking to ESPN in Brazil on Tuesday, Neymar Senior said: “PSG know that they will not be able to count on Neymar for the upcoming matches: his treatment will last six to eight weeks, whether there is an operation or not.” That was after PSG coach Unai Emery claimed earlier that “no decision” had been taken on whether Neymar would require surgery and that there remained a “small chance” of getting the world’s most expensive player back in time to face Real next Tuesday, March 6.Tests confirmed that Neymar suffered a hairline fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot as well as a twisted ankle late in PSG’s 3-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday.He appeared to be in tears as he was stretchered off the field at the Parc des Princes, immediately raising fears that the 26-year-old could miss the Champions League last 16, second leg against Madrid.PSG lost 3-1 in the first leg in Spain two weeks ago and are in danger of being knocked out of the competition in the last 16 for the second season running.Brazilian newspaper Globo Esporte had claimed Neymar would undergo surgery, and that the former Barcelona player would be sidelined until May.If his father’s estimate is correct, Neymar would not return before the semi-final stage of the Champions League in late April.On the possibility of rushing Neymar back for the Real second leg, experts say that PSG would be taking a huge risk, possibly even jeopardising Neymar’s participation at the World Cup in Russia in June and July.“It would be very risky as it’s a fragile bone in the foot which is difficult to protect,” Jean-Marcel Ferret, a former doctor with the French national team, told AFP.“(Playing against Real) could compromise the rest of his season.”In the meantime, PSG are preparing to do without Neymar for Wednesday’s French Cup quarter-final at home to Marseille, the second meeting of the clubs in four days.Argentine star Angel di Maria should replace the Brazilian at the Parc des Princes, with PSG hoping to stay on course to win the French Cup for the fourth season running.Neymar has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since his 222 million-euro ($264 million) move from Barcelona last August.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

LETTERKENNY COMMUNITY CENTRE WIN COURT BATTLE OVER KUNG FU INJURY

first_imgLETTERKENNY Community Centre has won a High Court action after being sued for a former weightlifting champion.Omagh man Neil Bradley claimed he was unable to work after suffering injuries during a jujitsu session at the centre.The 40-year-old had sued the centre and jujitsu instructor Josie Murray over injuries suffered in November 2005. Mr Bradley told said he had hurt himself when he and an opponent were trying to take the legs from under each other during a sparring session. Mats that should have been locked together weren’t and he sustained his injury in the fall.He had to have surgery on his injuries but continued to suffer from the effects of the injury, he said.Fergus O’Hagan SC, for the centre, put it to Mr Bradley he was claiming €189,000 for loss of earnings and wanted the defendant to “pay him until 65 for doing nothing.”In his judgment, Mr Justice Iarfhlaith O’Neill dismissed the case saying the mats were just two years old and in good condition and highly unlikely to move.He said that the evidence of Mr Bradley had “an air of improbability” and concluded the accident did not happen in the manner alleged.The judge said Mr Bradley had made no mention of the mats when he started his legal claim in March 2006.The judge said the evidence persuaded him the accident was caused by the unexpected tripping attempt by Mr Bradley resulting in his opponent coming down on Mr Bradley’s outstretched leg.Mr Bradley, he said, had sustained injuries but this was not due to any negligence on the part of the centre or the instructor.The case was dismissed and leave for appeal was allowed.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comLETTERKENNY COMMUNITY CENTRE WIN COURT BATTLE OVER KUNG FU INJURY was last modified: December 7th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:COURT BATTLEJUJITSULETTERKENNY COMMUNITY CENTRElast_img read more
