Real Madrid, Chelsea on alert as Torres contract talks breakdown

first_imgFerran Torres is one of La Liga’s most promising talents, having emerged as an effective regular starter for Valencia in recent seasons.Advertisement Loading… So far his style has been that of a skinny teenager with magic feet, but over time he’s developing both mentally and physically to become more of a presence on the pitch for 90 minutes.This last 12 months has seen him bulk up massively, gaining 4 kilos on his lockdown training plan as he attempts to get ready for the season’s return.This is all happening in the shadow of an uncertain future, however. The 20 year old has not yet signed a new contact at Mestalla, and it’s now just over a year from expiry.El Espanol report that this is “opening a path” to Real Madrid, but they won’t be the only ones interested. Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern are mentioned among the teams tracking the young talent. A source in Spain also informs us that Chelsea were impressed by the winger’s performances in the Champions League group that the two teams shared, and were tracking him until they concluded a deal for Hakim Ziyech in February.Read Also: Lampard wants short term Chelsea deal for Barcelona targetThe lack of progress on a new deal between Torres and Valencia may well make him an attractive and increasingly affordable option for the Blues to return to as they look to replace the departing Pedro and Willian.A new contract for Torres at Los Che is by no means out of the question, but the sense of importance of securing it before the end of this summer is growing. Teams will be looking for talented players at the right price, and the newly bulked up Torres with a contract into its final stretch will be temping for sides in La Liga and beyond.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted ContentPlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your BodyBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime7 Things That Actually Ruin Your PhoneBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time8 Scenes That Prove TV Has Gone Too FarPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty Penny9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooFantastic-Looking (and Probably Delicious) Bread Artlast_img read more

HallasPLEASANTON, Texas (May 19) – After some early season bad luck, Chris Carroll parked his IMCA Modified in the winner’s circle Saturday at I-37 Speedway.Thanks to his wife, son and a couple grand in repairs, Carroll got by point leader Rick Green for the lead. Talon Minten was able to show him the nose after a late restart but Carroll was able to hold him off.“It’s my wife and son supporting me, first off,” commented Carroll. “Colin put the car together and he made it come off the turns. It rotated through the middle real good. Rick (Green) slipped up a little bit and let me go.”“My son put the car back together after the crash earlier this year. There was about $2,000 in dam­age,” he continued. “We basically torn the right front off and bent the bird cages, tires and wheels. Luckily, I have a kid that loves this stuff and got it all back together. He’s a pretty good mechanic.”Minten ended in second and Green took third.last_img read more

GOtv Boxing Night 20: Scorpion, Baby Face promise explosive ring return

first_imgRelatedPosts Real One, Baby Face, Esepo to headline GOtv Boxing Night 21 GOtv Boxing Night 20: Ehwarieme eyes world title Esepo delighted at winning best boxer prize at GOtv Boxing Night 20 West African Boxing Union welterweight champion, Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, and national super featherweight champion, Ridwan “Scorpion” Oyekola, have promised to return to the ring in an explosive fashion at GOtv Boxing Night 20, scheduled to hold on 12 October. The two shinning stars are billed to fight at the event slated for the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium in Lagos. In his last fight at GOtv Boxing Night 19, Baby Face famously knocked out Ghana’s Eden Biki, who was punched into unconsciousness in the 10th round. The WABU champion next opponent is Jafaaru Suleiman. Speaking in Lagos on Monday, the WABU champion said he’s already looking beyond Sulaimon, whom he said he plans to use as preparation for the African Boxing Union title bout. He said: “Sulaimon is not an opponent in the real sense. He’s a training apparatus. I’m looking beyond the fight, as my target is the ABU title.” Oyekola, whose last engagement saw him dethrone long-reigning champion, Taofeek “Taozon” Bisuga at GOtv Boxing Night 18 in Ibadan, said his next opponent, Sikiru “Omo Iya Eleja” Shogbesan, will suffer the same fate as Bisuga, who suffered a first-round technical knockout after falling thrice. The Ibadan-based boxer, who spoke in a phone chat, advised Shogbesan to pull out of the bout or risk being beaten legless. “There is no dispute about me being the best in my category. Bisuga is well placed to tell Shogbesan how I made him see stars. If Shogbesan ignores my advice, the walls of the Indoor Sports Hall will appear to him as wobbling by the time I finish with him,” said Scorpion. GOtv Boxing Night 20 will be headlined by the much anticipated pairing of ABU lightweight king, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, and WABU champion, Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, who face each other in the ABU title bout. Also on the card is the national bantamweight title bout between Sadiq Adeleke and Opeyemi “Sense” Adeyemi. Other bouts include a national welterweight challenge a national light heavyweight challenge bout between Adewale “Masevex” Masebinu and Kabiru “KB Godson Towolawi; and a national featherweight challenge bout between Tope “TP Rock” Musa and Olusegun “Embargo” Moses. Graduates of GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 5 will also make their debut at the event as Alaba “Elybow” Omotola, best boxer of the competition, will take on Bolaji “Fight to Finish” Abdullahi in a national lightweight challenge contest. There is also an all-female bout as Cynthia “Bobby Girl” Ogunsemilore will square up against Aminat “Smart” Yekini in a super featherweight challenge.Tags: Baby faceGOtv Boxing Night 20Ridwan OyekolaRilwan babatundelast_img read more

Concerns Surround Suspension of Police Misconduct Investigations

first_imgAs the pandemic has caused changes and suspensions of many services and procedures, members of law enforcement are no exception.According to a report in The South Florida Sun Sentinel, police departments across our region have paused many internal investigations, in accordance with state law.Florida’s legislature passed what is known as “The Law Enforcement & Correctional Officers Bill of Rights” back in 2007.It provides departments with a six-month period to conduct investigations about misconduct, before the case is automatically dropped.Departments have the ability to halt the investigations during emergencies including hurricanes and the pandemic.Among the agencies in South Florida that have done so are the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.On the other hand, the Delray Beach Police Department recently resumed its investigations after stopping them for some time.Many police departments paused investigations into officer misbehavior because of COVID. But the Broward Sheriff’s Office and The Fort Lauderdale Police Department have yet to restart. Critics say the pauses make it hard to hold bad cops accountable. https://t.co/yLB159ns01— Mario Ariza (@inaminorkey) August 22, 2020 “Responsiveness is part of justice,” John Quick, who serves as independent counsel for the city of Miami civilian oversight panel, tells The Sentinel.He adds, “Memory fades, evidence walks away or deteriorates. That’s the biggest thing, though, memories just fade.”Meanwhile, Evan Ross has his own take on the stoppage.He represents LaToya Ratlieff, who Fort Lauderdale officers struck in the head with a rubber bullet during a recent a Black Lives Matters demonstration.Ross explains to the newspaper, “We had assumed they had been conducting an investigation, interviewing people.”The law also explains that accused officers must be provided with all evidence before a case against them can move forward.last_img read more
