Man Utd agree deal with Inter for Alexis Sanchez

first_img ‘Unofficially, we’ll make it official tomorrow morning,’ said Marotta. Sanchez endured a nightmare 18 months at Old Trafford Read Also: Europa League: Man United, Inter reach Europa League last eight ‘The player is entirely owned by Inter. We have a contract with him for three seasons.’ With Inter in the other half of the Europa League draw, United could potentially face the Serie A giants in the final if both sides manage to progress. That would mean United come up against three former palyers, as Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young are both at the San Siro. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez will be unveiled as an Inter Milan player on Thursday after the Serie A giants agreed to sign the Chilean on a free transfer. Sanchez, 31, became United’s record earner in 2018 when he joined the club from Arsenal on wages of £450,000-a-week.However, the Chile international managed just five goals in 45 appearances for United and was loaned to Inter Milan on a season-long deal at the start of the campaign. After recapturing his form, Inter were keen to make Sanchez’s move a permanent one and United have agreed to waive a transfer fee in order to get the former Barcelona attacker off the books. Under the terms of Sanchez’s loan, the Chilean would have been prevented from featuring in the Europa League knockout stages. However, Inter’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta confirmed before tonight’s game against Getafe that Sanchez will be confirmed as a Inter player on Thursday.Advertisement Loading… center_img Promoted ContentThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Carver – No favours from Allardyce

first_img Carver said: “Kevin was great for this football club, great, and he’s been great for Sam everywhere he’s gone. “But like Joey last weekend, he won’t be doing us any favours. Joey didn’t do us any favours, and I’m sure Kevin will be the same.” The equation for Carver and his players is quite straightforward: win and they are safe regardless of what Hull do at home to Manchester United. But that is something they have not managed since February 28, and anything less could prove fatal with the Tigers, who trail the Magpies by two points, enjoying a superior goal difference. Carver could have midfielder Siem de Jong back at his disposal following his return to training after a thigh problem, but central defender Mike Williamson is definitely available once again after serving a two-match ban for his dismissal at Leicester. The head coach, of course, suggested Williamson had deliberately collected the red card in the immediate aftermath of a damaging 3-0 defeat at the King Power Stadium, but he insists the rift his comments caused has healed. Carver said: “I’ve shaken hands with Mike and that’s forgotten. I’m like that. I can fall out with someone one day and then be their best friend the next – look at Craig Bellamy a few years ago. “That’s just the way I am. I don’t hold a grudge and that’s important. I’ll say what I have to say, as I did with Mike, but then I’ll clear the slate.” Press Association There is little love lost between the club and a man who used his pay-off to buy a Costa Blanca holiday home which he named ‘Casa St James”. But Carver knows even if there were no history between the parties, professional pride would dictate that the Hammers would arrive on Tyneside looking for three points, regardless of the consequences for their hosts. The 50-year-old said: “No matter who it is – and I know Sam has been the manager here and Neil McDonald is at the club, who is a good friend of mine – you want to win games. “No matter who you’re playing against, and even when people are saying there’s nothing at stake, you still want to win. Your pride tells you that. This weekend is going to be no different. “But I’m not bothered about what he’s thinking or who is coming here. I’m just bothered about us, I really am. “I’ve not spoken to anyone. Neil has sent me a text, but I’ve not even replied to him. He’s my mate, but I’m not interested in West Ham United and Sam.” Allardyce will not be the only man within the visitors’ camp with a connection to Newcastle with former skipper Kevin Nolan, who led the club back into the top flight after relegation in 2009 and who is revered on Tyneside for scoring a derby day hat-trick against Sunderland, also north-east-bound. Nolan played in the same Newcastle team as Joey Barton, whose current employers QPR fought back to not only deny Newcastle a first victory in 10 attempts at Loftus Road last weekend, but take all the points to plunge their visitors deeper into the mire. John Carver is expecting no favours from Sam Allardyce as he attempts to keep Newcastle in the Barclays Premier League. The latest man to be handed the managerial reins by owner Mike Ashley at St James’ Park will go head-to-head with the one he sacked in January 2008 with the Magpies in desperate need of a first victory in 11 attempts if they are to condemn Hull to the drop and survive. Allardyce, who was appointed by former chairman Freddy Shepherd just days before Ashley launched his successful take-over in May 2007, was shown the door after only eight months at the helm. last_img read more

Students say Local Triptrotters improve abroad experience

first_imgIn the last four years, Denisha Brekke, a senior majoring in business administration, has visited four continents and six different countries, all through programs run by the Marshall School of Business.All of the trips — ranging from Santiago, Chile her freshman year to Stockholm, Sweden just a month ago — have been unique and eye-opening experiences for Brekke, but there is one thing that set some of the trips apart: being shown around by a local host.These hosts are known as Triptrotters, students from universities abroad who are interested in showing their cities to visiting travelers.“What happens on these trips, especially in big groups of people, is you get there and for going out [at night] you’re on your own and a lot of people are clueless,” Brekke said. “And if you have a host, they can advise you and tell you about the best places to go.”In addition to being in the know about good clubs and restaurants, cafes and hangout spots, being paired up with a local Triptrotter adds a new dimension to global networking and helps to build cultural understanding, according to Brekke.Jamie Kwak, a 2010 graduate who majored in accounting and travelled to Budapest, Hungary through the Experiential Corporate Environment Learning Program run by Marshall, echoed Brekke’s sentiment that finding a local guide, as opposed to going on a formal tour, is invaluable.“One place we went [in Budapest] there were a bunch of local students sitting around the fire drinking tea and eating these weird fish cracker things,” Kwak said. “And you just don’t see that when you go on tours with the big companies.”There are efforts within the university to help facilitate these individual connections that can add depth to a study abroad experience.This type of exchange and the expansion of the Trojan family is one of Marshall’s main goals in planning their international programs, according to Sean O’Connell, the director of International Programs at Marshall.“Almost all of the visits and internship placements are made either with companies in which Trojans are employed, or Trojans own or connections through Trojans abroad,” O’Connell said. “In these programs the true vastness of the Trojan network really becomes something tangible for students and faculty.”O’Connell said Marshall’s study abroad office believes it is important to support students while they’re abroad, but sometimes the best form of support is letting them experience the culture.“At Marshall we recognize that with study abroad, quite a bit of the learning takes place outside of the classroom, and so we want the students to have access to these individuals, and the lessons they can teach, while they are away from campus,” O’Connell said. “It’s also great to see a friendly face when you are halfway around the world.” Correction: A previous version of this story stated that “Students say local guides improve abroad experience.” They are known as Local Triptrotters, not local guides.last_img read more

Dishing and Swishing: The hype around the Milwaukee Bucks needs to simmer down

first_imgShawn Farhadian is a sophomore writing about the NBA and social justice. His column, “Dishing and Swishing,” runs every other Friday. Here’s what might be another problem, as proposed by former NBA forward Richard Jefferson: What if Giannis is more of a Scottie Pippen than a Michael Jordan? Does he need that extra superior star power to take him over Milwaukee’s playoff bumps? Milwaukee is already down 2-0 to the Miami Heat — a fifth seed in the east — in the Conference Semifinals. And to be honest, I’m not sure if I would be too surprised if they go down 3-0 Friday. Here’s the problem, though: The Bucks — and Giannis — don’t pass the eye test. At all. To put it bluntly, they are boring to watch. Miami’s young guards and wings, which include Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic and Tyler Herro, are outrunning and outshooting Milwaukee’s guards. They’re doing it by continuously finding and taking open shots, whereas the Bucks seem to try to force everything through Giannis. The Los Angeles Clippers, Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Toronto Raptors, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics lead the NBA in points, field goal percentage, three point percentage, free throw percentage, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks per game respectively. The answer to this question is thought provoking because although Jefferson could very well be right, the debate gets more complicated when you start to mull over options for Giannis. The Greek Freak is expected to test free agency after the playoffs, and Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports reported Thursday that it’s an “open secret” that Miami and Toronto are the leading candidates to land Giannis. However, this shouldn’t automatically warrant winning Defensive Player of the Year. Giannis finished No. 40 in the league in blocks per game and No. 98 in steals per game. His 6-foot-11 stature, 7-foot-3 wingspan and unreal athleticism clearly help him out, but why wasn’t Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis considered more, since he finished No. 16 in steals per game and third in blocks per game and helped the Lakers to the top seed in their conference? For the record, he was still in the top-22 in defensive rebounds and defensive win shares. Yes, Milwaukee is a defensive juggernaut: They lead the NBA in defensive rating, defensive rebounds and opponent points in the paint. Likewise, Giannis led the league in defensive rebounds and defensive win shares, which helped the Bucks win games. Although OKC and Utah are already eliminated from the playoffs, Milwaukee isn’t at the top of any single offensive statistic. The Bucks’ power lies in their defense. I just spit out a bunch of stats and names, but here’s what I’m really trying to get at: As spectacular of a defensive team the Bucks are, their offense isn’t good enough to outplay other defenses in the playoffs, including Miami’s. It’s not electrifying, and Giannis and shooting guard Khris Middleton take virtually every single shot as they are the only two Bucks to score more than 20 points per game this season. You know what they say: If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Isn’t that right, Kevin Durant? Anyway, Milwaukee needs to perform better this series (and the next if they make it, somehow), and by better, I mean they need to be more exciting to watch. If they’re not going to play well through better ball movement and more points in transition, they’ll be in trouble sooner than they’d like. This isn’t to say that the Bucks are not a good team, because of course they’re good. For the regular season, the Bucks finished first in points and rebounds per game, third in field goal percentage and sixth in assists per game. Good offensive teams perform well in those categories. An easy start to fixing this problem is to get more points off turnovers; Milwaukee finished just 10th in that category this season despite its stellar defense. This standing is also behind the other three remaining Eastern Conference teams (Toronto, Boston and Miami), so forget about winning the Finals for a second. If they want to even get there in the first place to compete against a team like the Clippers or Lakers, they need to capitalize on forcing an eighth-best average of 14 turnovers per game. But haven’t you noticed that they don’t lead any particular offensive category? The Milwaukee Bucks finished the shortened 2019-20 regular season winning more than 75% of their games. In a top-heavy Eastern Conference, they finished out on top by 2.5 games. They lost only five games at home, and they did it all with the reigning MVP, current Defensive Player of the Year and four-time All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.last_img read more

Lakers’ Ryan Kelly finding his way at small forward

first_imgThat sharply contrasts how Scott handled decreased playing time to Jeremy Lin and Nick Young, both of whom sought out Scott.“I respect him a lot as a basketball player and a person because of the way he comes to work every single day,” Scott said of Price. “I thought I owed him that.” Price has averaged only 5.2 points and 3.7 assists, but Scott often lauds his defensive toughness. “I’m always thankful to be able to play,” said Price, whose absence against Orlando marked the fifth consecutive game he missed because of a coach’s decision. “The times I got a chance to get on the floor, every chance I get, I try to enjoy it. We never know how many more basketball games any of us have.”Price, a nine-year veteran, signed with the Lakers last summer to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal worth $1.3 million. Price said he “absolutely” would love to stay with the Lakers, though they will prioritize pursuing marquee free agents. “It’s great when you have guys like a Ronnie Price,” said Scott. “He’s going to be good no matter if he’s playing or not. You know he’s going to work his butt off in practice. He’s going to be a mentor to the younger guys. He’s going to be great on the bench and great in the locker room.” ORLANDO, FLA. — It turns out that Ryan Kelly’s frustrations did not end once he fully healed his hamstrings.The Lakers’ 6-foot-11 forward soon encountered a different form of adversity, playing at the small forward position after previously thriving at power forward. But Kelly may have turned a corner, scoring a season-high 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting in the Lakers’ 103-97 overtime loss on Friday to the Orlando Magic at Amway Center. “I was a little more active and teammates saw my opportunities,” Kelly said. “I tend to try make the right play. But sometimes the play is to be aggressive and shoot the ball.”After missing 32 of the Lakers’ first 35 games because of injuries to his left and right hamstrings, Kelly has averaged only 3.6 points on 31.8 percent shooting. That marks a far cry from last season, when he averaged eight points on a 42.3 percent clip during his rookie year under former coach Mike D’Antoni as a stretch forward. “I know he’s a natural (power forward),” Scott said. “But anytime you can have versatility, it makes you more valuable. I want to still experiment with it.”So why did the formula work against Orlando?“He made shots. He got himself open and he was much more active offensively,” Scott said. “That’s the Ryan Kelly we were waiting for.”Meeting of the mindsScott recently told veteran guard Ronnie Price he likely will not play until after the NBA All-Star game on Feb. 13 for two reasons: So rookie Jordan Clarkson can develop as the starting point guard and so Price can fully heal from a sore right elbow.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
