Barca offer Spurs THREE players for flop Ndombele in stunning swap transfer bid

first_imgBARCELONA have offered Tottenham one of three stars in part-exchange for Tanguy Ndombele.But Spurs are understood to want cash-only for their French flop.3 Barcelona have offered Spurs a part-exchange deal for Tanguy NdombeleCredit: Reuters3 The Catalans have offered Nelson Semedo and Samuel Umtiti as part of the dealThe Catalan giants are keen on signing Ndombele in what would be one of the shock deals of the summer.But with cash in short supply at the Nou Camp, they cannot afford to meet Tottenham’s £55million valuation with a straight buy.So they have said Spurs can have either centre-back Samuel Umtiti, right-back Nelson Semedo or midfielder Arthur plus cash in exchange for Ndombele.The North Londoners are said to be unimpressed with the offer.They signed the France midfielder from Lyon in a deal worth up to £65m last summer, but his poor displays in a Spurs shirt means he has failed to meet most of add-ons, so the fee so far has worked out at around £55m, which Tottenham want to recoup in cash.With a new £1b stadium still to pay for, they would be pleased to get Ndombele’s £140,000-a-week wages off their balance sheet.3But the suggestion of bringing in one of those Barcelona players on even more pay, makes a part-exchange deal even more unlikely.Arthur, valued at £48m, is also said to favour a switch to Inter Milan and if Spurs took one of the defenders it would leave them short in midfield and having to splash out on an expensive replacement.Manager Jose Mourinho is said to want to sign a stronger defensive midfielder – which is why Spurs would want cash.They are not actively looking to sell Ndombele but would be willing to do so if the right offer comes along.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himHe has made just 27 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring just twice and has had his attitude and fitness publicly questioned by Mourinho.The player also told pals he was left “bemused” when his manager dragged him out of his apartment for an impromptu fitness session in a local park.This resulted in the pair being slammed for break lockdown and social distancing guidelines issued during the current coronavirus crisis.Lionel Messi’s obsession with ‘The Greatest’ Muhammad Ali includes a shrine to boxing icon at Barcelona star’s homelast_img read more

Salihamidzic dismisses Sané and regrets Flick’s requests

first_imgBayern Munich’s sports director, Hasan Salihamidzic, disagreed with the demand for reinforcements for the second part of the season made on Thursday by the German coach, Hansi Flick, through the media, also ruling out any attempt by the German end of Manchester City, Leroy Sané, currently injured. “I am not a friend of team planning through the media,” Salihamidzic explained after a team training in Qatar, where they are concentrated during the winter break of the Bundesliga.

The best players are not in this signing period,” he said.The former player insisted that “the future of Bayern does not depend on a right back” and said they were not close to signing anyone at this time, adding that Leroy Sané “is not an issue” for the club, since the end of Manchester City is still recovering from a serious knee injury.

The ICC demands more commitment from clubs to continue

first_imgThe first obstacle is the moment of the tournament itself. The summer competition is taken by the clubs as a part of the preseason, in such a way that or many of their stars do not take part because they rejoin later of their vacations or play very few minutes or, even, the clubs use the appointment to Test and evaluate future promises. In that sense, Ross “wants clubs to commit to maintaining” competitive tension “at the level of other official tournaments. As an incentive, at the meeting that Ross held in Paris last week with club representatives, he explained that they could be rewarded with more money than they currently receive and he, Ross and RSE Ventures (the company founded for their sports investments) would be satisfied Your huge investment. Ross, meanwhile, has no intention of doing this behind UEFA’s back.Taking advantage of his trip to Europe, he would have met with the representatives of the organization to try to have his approval or even that his image somehow associated with the tournament. European clubs recognized the need to include changes in the ICC, but postponed them to the composition of a work table to study them in detail. In that way, it would be studied if a football event of the highest level, as Ross claims, is sustainable in some way, given the tightness of the calendar and the multitude of national and international competitions.Similarly, the New York Times article reports another detail. After the meeting in Paris, participants in it traveled to Zurich to meet with Infantino, president of FIFA. The organization has just created the International Club Cup, which is an expanded club world cup that will be released in China in 2021. The clubs would have asked for decision power in the guidelines of the new tournament, as well as under the umbrella of UEFA already have capacity in their competitions. Stephen M. Ross, billionaire owner of the Dolphins, is also the organizer and funder of the International Champions Cup (ICC), the summer competition in which the main European clubs are measured during the preseason. In their last men’s edition, on behalf of Spain, Real Madrid and Atlético participated. Ross, as the New York Times explains today, took part in the meeting held in Paris by several of the clubs of the Association of European Clubs (ECA). The ideologist of the ICC conveyed their concern because their competition, whose cost has risen to 100 million dollars, remains deficient for your interests and you want a series of commitments from the clubs to keep your bet. Ross has spent years investing large sums, convinced that high-level European football could attract the attention of more investors in the American market, but he has encountered setbacks that “could extinguish the flame” because “the organizers cannot keep losing money”, according to the New York Times article.last_img read more
