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

Portugal ‘stronger than Morocco’, says Andre Silva

first_img“We cannot underestimate them and must have respect for any opponent. Any game at the World Cup is difficult.”Silva came on as a late substitute in Portugal’s 3-3 draw against Spain in their opening game in Group B, while a late own goal condemned Morocco to a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat by Iran.“They lost their first game but it happens and now they will focus on winning and will try their best,” the AC Milan forward said.“They’re used to playing against European teams and will do their all to get this victory.”He added: “There are no favourites. Morocco have excellent players and the result of their game against Iran could have been different.”Cristiano Ronaldo has tipped the 22-year-old Silva, who moved to Milan from Porto last year, as his long-term successor in the Portugal team.“As I’ve said it’s a big honour to play with him, he’s the best footballer in the world,” said Silva, who has scored an impressive 12 goals in 24 international appearances.“I’m very happy to be on the same team with him.“When he needs me to do something I’m always where he needs me to be. And when I need him he’s always by my side.

REVEALED: 209 PER CENT INCREASE IN WAITING LISTS AT LETTERKENNY GENERAL HOSPITAL

first_imgLetterkenny General Hospital is under staffedTHERE’S more proof today that Letterkenny General Hospital hasn’t got enough doctors and nurses.After a year (so far) of crisis after crisis with under-pressure staff struggling to cope with patient numbers, figures released today show a shocking increase in the number of people on waiting lists.In fact the numbers on those lists has increased by more than TWO HUNDRED PER CENT – with 13,000 people on lists. At the end of July there were over 2,300 people waiting more than a year for an appointment at Letterkenny General – that’s a 209% increase since January.Deputy McConalogue obtained the shocking statistics.He told Donegal Daily: “The figures highlight the Government’s failure in tackling the crisis in our health service.  Despite a series of promises and announcements that waiting lists are reducing, the statistics from the NTPF reveal the real story.“Not only is the number of people on the waiting lists increasing, the waiting times themselves are also on the rise.  In the first seven months of the year, the number of people waiting more than 6 months for an outpatient appointment at Letterkenny General Hospital hit 13,000 – an increase of almost 2,000.  During the same period, the number of patients on a waiting list for over a year soared by over 200% to 2,333. “I am extremely concerned that this situation will deteriorate further as the cuts to the health service begin to filter through.  €200m is being slashed from hospital budgets this year, which will force additional service cutbacks in an already pressurised system.“The Taoiseach has consistently claimed that significant progress has been made on the waiting list issue.  These figures should act as a wake-up call to the reality of the situation.“Despite the rhetoric of the past 3 and a half years, there’s been a significant upsurge in waiting lists and times.  Minister Varadkar needs to stop believing his Government’s spin and wake up to this crisis which is now impacting on every hospital in this city.  It is unacceptable that people are left months, and even years to see a doctor in their local hospital.  This practice is not only unfair; it is dangerous and must be urgently addressed.“The Minister cannot continue with this Government’s flawed approach to the health service.  We need a realistic Budget, instead of the back of the envelope estimates, which have been presented over the past three years.  It remains to be seen if the Minister and the Government has the courage or the conviction to fulfil their pre-election promises.” REVEALED: 209 PER CENT INCREASE IN WAITING LISTS AT LETTERKENNY GENERAL HOSPITAL was last modified: September 25th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Charlie McConalogueletterkenny hospitalStafflast_img read more

New USDA Dietary Guidelines released

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services last week released the final 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans,Servings of lean meat, poultry, eggs and dairy remain in the newly established 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The DGA’s are broken into three diet plans: healthy U.S. style eating pattern, healthy Mediterranean style eating pattern and the healthy vegetarian eating pattern.“The Dietary Guidelines provide a clear path for the general public, as well as policy makers and health professionals and others who reach the public, to help Americans make healthy choices, informed by a thoughtful, critical and transparent review of the scientific evidence on nutrition,” said representatives for USDA and HHS.These recommendations will be pivotal in the education components of health professionals, federal food and education programs, along with serving as a manual for registered dieticians. Five overarching guidelines include:follow a healthy eating pattern across the lifespan,focus on a variety, nutrient-dense foods and amount,limit calories from added sugars and saturated fats to no more than 10% of total calories and sodium to no more than 2,300 milligrams per day,choose healthy foods and beverages andsupport healthy eating patterns for all.The National Pork Producers Council voiced support for the guidelines. A review of the guidelines shows they are narrowly focused on nutrition — much more so than previous iterations. The recommendation on consuming protein calls for “a variety of protein foods, including seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes (beans and peas), and nuts, seeds, and soy products.”The Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) of various food groups are largely unchanged from the 2010 guidelines. The guidelines do recommend that less than 10% of daily calories come from saturated fat and call out meat, processed meat and meat dishes as major sources of saturated fat. But the guidelines indicate that sticking to the RDAs should meet the recommendation on saturated fat. The guidelines also note that people aren’t getting enough potassium, calcium, vitamin D, iron and dietary fiber and single out meat as the best source of iron and pork as a source of vitamin D.The bottom line according to NPPC is that meat remains an important part of the American diet. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans do not contain any provisions that should drive federal, institutional or consumer shifts away from meat as the major protein source in diets, and they do not include extraneous matters, such as requiring food producers to meet sustainability standards or taxing certain foods as a way to reduce their consumption.The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans is available at www.dietaryguidelines.gov.last_img read more
