Courtois spent three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid before being brought into the first-team picture for the Premier League giants in 2014, although his family stayed behind.Los Blancos are rumoured to be interested in the 25-year-old, who admits he has a strong desire to head back to Madrid one day.“My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid,” he told Belgian publication Sport/Foot Magazine. “My two children live there with their mum. I have my daughter every day on FaceTime. She often tells me that she misses me. My son is still too small to communicate like that.“Whenever I have the opportunity, I try to return to Spain. As a situation, it is not always easy. Yes, my heart is in Madrid. It is logical and understandable.“If they want me, they have to contact Chelsea. We’ll see. But they have not done that. What is certain is that one day I will return to Madrid. I love Spain, I love the city, I spent three wonderful years there [with Atletico Madrid]. It is there that I became an adult.Chelsea’s head coach Antonio Conte (L) celebrates with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois on October 30, 2016“Atletico was a real group of friends. We went out together and my team-mates taught me a language I did not know at all when I arrived. When I left, I cried. My first days in London were not easy. England, when I arrived, was colder, more business. Now, I feel very good here.“I understand that the rumours are coming back today, as we are talking about a new goalkeeper there [at Real]. But I do not pay much attention to that, I stay focused on Chelsea.“If Real are really interested, my personal situation could influence things. The family aspect is priceless. But I repeat to you that, for the moment, I’m busy talking to Chelsea to extend. We agreed to meet again in February because the club had more urgent issues to deal with in January.“There is no rush, I am under contract until 2019. Normally, there is no problem, I will extend. I am happy here and I see a club that still wants to win a lot of titles. The signs are positive. Their desire to also extend Eden Hazard’s deal reassures me.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois sets his wall to defend a free kick during the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Chelsea at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, southern England.LONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 7- Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois would welcome a move to Real Madrid for personal reasons, but intends to sign on at Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks.The Belgium international continues to be linked with a return to the Spanish capital, despite ongoing talks with the Blues to extend his contract, which expires in 2019.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Planting Progress ContinuesDespite spotty rain events, warmer temperatures allowed for some field activities to be completed, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 4.0 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending May 27. Some rains stalled planting, but the week was mostly dry. High temperatures allowed producers to get out into the fields. Corn and soybean planting continued to go strong. Winter wheat is also maturing rapidly. Hay first cutting is starting to pick up in most areas. Crop conditions are good to excellent. Hay and pasture are also in good condition. Other activities this week included spraying, tillage, hauling manure, nitrogen application, and corn side dressing.Click here to see the full report
Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA The Sixers also play games at Sacramento, Golden State and the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers. All teams on the trip except for the Kings have at least a .500 record. Embiid is expected to play against the Kings.The Sixers have won four straight games for the first time since January.“That means we’re growing and we’re learning,” Embiid said.J.J. Redick scored 31 points and hit eight 3s in Philly’s win over Indiana on Friday and suddenly seemed worth every bit of the $23 million the Sixers will pay him this season. The Sixers tied a team record against the Pacers with 18 3s.They will need more of that on the road from Redick — and there’s little reason to expect Simmons won’t continue to play like a top candidate for rookie of the year.Simmons had 14 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists against the Pacers for his second triple-double of the season. He joined Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson as the only rookies with multiple triple-doubles in the first nine career games. Simmons also has five double-doubles.Embiid and Simmons are each averaging at least 18 points and nine rebounds per game and are two of nine NBA players with such averages. The only other pair of teammates on the list is the New Orleans Pelicans’ DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.“When everyone’s scoring, doing their thing, I think it’s hard to stop us,” Simmons said.They’re much harder to stop with Embiid in the lineup.Brown and the Sixers would like to try that out on a more regular basis. Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Something called “load management.”Oh, Sixers fans think the excuse to sit Embiid is a load of something, for sure.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutEmbiid hasn’t been hurt in months and has dominated so far, averaging team highs with 20.5 points and 10.1rebounds. His big numbers on the stat sheet finally draw more headlines than his social media posts.Embiid can just about do it all — except shed the “handle with care” sticker the Sixers seemed to have stamped on his uniform. Yes, Embiid has a medical chart as thick as a playbook, but the Sixers have decided to rest him Tuesday against the Utah Jazz as they monitor his number of games and minutes. Embiid has averaged 27.6 minutes and played in eight of nine games. He’ll miss the one four days after the Sixers beat Indiana.

Without Embiid, Philadelphia will be challenged to keep its four-game winning streak alive. The Sixers (5-4) open a nine-day, five-game road with their first winning record in November since 2012 and first time overall since Nov. 13, 2003.Richaun Holmes, Amir Johnson and maybe even Jahlil Okafor will get minutes against the Jazz.Embiid and rookie Ben Simmons have made the Sixers an early season surprise, and their record is a boost for a franchise that underwent one of the more painful NBA rebuilding efforts in decades.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
