first_imgMonaco have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi after his loan spell at Valencia was cut short .Goal  understands the Belgium international’s agent, Meissa N’Diaye, has arrived to the principality to hold further talks regarding a move to Ligue 1 for his client.Everton had been considering a bid of up £18 million ($23m) for Batshuayi given they are unable to sign him on loan.

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is already plying his trade at Goodison Park on a temporary basis, with Premier League rules stating a maximum of one player can be loaned to another club at any one time.Were they to sell, Chelsea would likely want to recoup the £33m ($42m) they spent to sign Batshuayi from Marseille in 2016, and as such another loan deal looks most likely this January.Should he complete the move to the Ligue 1 strugglers then he would reunite with Thierry Henry, with the former Arsenal striker and current Monaco manager having previously worked as a coach for the Belgian national team.”I know him well, we were close with Belgium,” Henry said of the forward. “We’ll see what happens. He’s an interesting player.”Batshuayi would also become the second Chelsea player to move to the Stade Louis II during the January window, with Cesc Fabregas set to complete his permanent transfer once a replacement is found by Maurizio Sarri’s side.A move back to the French league could be exactly what Batshuayi needs having struggled for form during his time with Valencia during the first half of the season.Michy Batshuayi Chris Smalling Manchester United Valencia UEFA Champions League 02102018He scored just three goals in 23 appearances for Los Che, with manager Marcelino suggesting that patience had run out with the ex-Borussia Dortmund loanee after he was substituted at half-time of Tuesday’s Copa del Rey defeat to Sporting Gijon of the Segunda Division.Meanwhile, Chelsea’s pursuit of Napoli full-back Elseid Hysaj has been put on hold until the summer transfer window opens.The Albania international was a key player for Sarri during his time with the Serie A high-flyers, and it had been hoped he could be tempted to move to the Premier League this January.But the player recently held talks with the Napoli hierarchy and committed himself to the club until the end of the season as they look to mount an unlikely challenge to catch current leaders Juventus.last_img read more

Match Preview Kylian Mbappe PSG 2019-20There is no doubt who the main attraction will be when Paris Saint-Germain face Inter in Macau on Saturday; Neymar is the player that all the locals want to see.Fans have been crowding the PSG base in Shenzhen in an attempt to glimpse the Brazil international, who has been so evident in the news over the past weeks due to his uncertain future at the Parc des Princes side. Having been publicly rebuked for failing to report for pre-season training in time, he is back in the squad for the first time this summer, and scrutiny will be poured over this performance like never before, though he is not expected to be risked for this clash.“Every coach wants Neymar in the team, and so do I,” head coach Thomas Tuchel has insisted.PSG’s need for the ex-Barcelona ace was made clear in their last pre-season outing, when they were held to a 1-1 draw in Nurnberg last weekend, with the team failing to fire offensively aside from Kylian Mbappe, who has returned for pre-season looking as sharp as ever.Missing many players due to international commitments, the summer has proven a difficult one to negotiate for the Ligue 1 champions, whose competitive campaign begins next weekend with the Trophee des Champions against Rennes, the side that beat them in the Coupe de France final, in Shenzhen.Inter, meanwhile, have rather less urgency about their preparations. They will not play a competitive game until the middle of August, and even that will be a Coppa Italia match against a lower-league opponent that they should be able to negotiate, even in the rustiest state.Head coach Antonio Conte, however, wants to see more from his team after they went down on penalties against Juventus, having taken the lead in a 1-1 draw.“We must always be irritated by defeat,” the ex-Chelsea boss said. “The important thing is that the intensity gets into the minds of the players. We need to play intense football and go to press the opposition. When we’ve got the ball, we try to propose our ideas.“I am starting to see glimpses of an identity and our way of taking to the field. We must continue along this path: head down, work hard. There is much to do.”There may be around three weeks before the Nerazzurri take to the field in anger, but Conte wants to get a high-profile scalp under his belt after a victory over Lugano and a defeat to Manchester United previously this summer. Saturday’s match offers his side the perfect opportunity to do just that.last_img read more

Florida won 24-21. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Former Kentucky star and NFL quarterback Jared Lorenzen, who had been hospitalized since Friday, has passed away. He was 38.Lorenzen was admitted to the hospital last week after reportedly not feeling well for some time. He was admitted to ICU, where he battled an infection as well as heart and kidney issues.As of yesterday, the most recent update from Lorenzen’s family said he was “developing some traction” but cautioned that he still was dealing with renal and cardiac issues and was “very sick.”ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap shared a heartbreaking text message Lorenzen’s mother sent to his colleague Russ Dinallo. In a text to my colleague @RussDinallo, who produced our E:60 story on Jared Lorenzen, Lorenzen’s mother Janet confirmed that Jared died today. He was only 38. Janet said, “I lost my sweet boy today after a long hard fight.”— Jeremy Schaap (@JeremySchaap) July 3, 2019Moments ago, Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones tweeted out a lengthier statement from the Lorenzen family.Here is a statement from the family of Jared Lorenzen pic.twitter.com/vTJn2gdNU5— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) July 3, 2019Lorenzen was a star and a cult hero at Kentucky in the early 2000s. He set the school passing yards record during his time in Lexington and led the Wildcats to a 7-5 record in 2002.Lorenzen went undrafted in 2004 but latched on with the New York Giants as a backup. He stayed with the organization for four years, winning a Super Bowl as Eli Manning’s understudy in 2007.After leaving the NFL, Lorenzen played in multiple indoor football leagues, including af2 and the Continental Indoor Football League.Our thoughts and prayers are with Lorenzen’s family and friends.

first_imgScott Frost ahead of his team's game against Purdue.LINCOLN, NE – SEPTEMBER 29: Head coach Scott Frost of the Nebraska Cornhuskers watches first half action against the Purdue Boilermakers at Memorial Stadium on September 29, 2018 in Lincoln, Nebraska. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Nebraska head coach Scott Frost is facing some major criticism following the Huskers’ overtime loss to Colorado this evening.The Huskers entered the game as the favorite and jumped out to a 17-0 lead, but blew it in the second half, allowing Colorado to tie the game thanks to multiple huge plays late.Nebraska ended up losing in overtime, 34-31, to fall to 1-1 on the season.Frost is getting crushed for his decision making, especially in overtime. Nebraska was conservative on offense in overtime, running the ball twice to open the drive. Neither play went anywhere. Adrian Martinez then took a sack on third down.Instead of going for it on 4th and long, Frost sent his field goal kicker out to attempt to tie the game with a 48-yard kick. It never had a chance.Nebraska fell in overtime in brutal fashion.This loss is on Scott Frost. 17-0.— CaptainBugeater (@CaptainBugeater) September 7, 2019Play calling by Scott Frost in OT deserves every bit of criticism it gets. That was awful.— Andy Pinkall (@apinkall) September 7, 2019This L is on Frost and his decisions in the latter half of the 4th quarter.— Mr. Bean (@beanotorretta) September 7, 2019Frost’s play calling and decision making need to be at the top of the criticism list. Both were beyond suspect today. https://t.co/xFMvmqF7M0— Jaja Hamma (@bucktown33) September 7, 2019This is just Year 2 for Frost at Nebraska and Huskers fans are going to give him plenty of time to right the ship in Lincoln.Still, the Huskers entered the season with high hopes and should have won this game. Fans have a right to be upset right now.Frost and Co. will attempt to get back in the win column next weekend against Northern Illinois.last_img read more

first_img Romita Datta Bhubaneswar January 19, 2019 ISSUE DATE: January 28, 2019UPDATED: January 19, 2019 08:26 IST India Today Group Editorial Director Raj Chengappa in conversation with Congress’s Sushmita Dev, BJD’s Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo and BJP’s Nishikant Dubey. (Photographs by Rajwant Rawat and Subir Halder)It was a date with the ‘India of today’ and the ‘India of tomorrow’ at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2019 in Bhubaneswar on January 10. The excitement within the packed auditorium of the Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology was palpable. The students watched in awe as celebritiesIt was a date with the ‘India of today’ and the ‘India of tomorrow’ at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2019 in Bhubaneswar on January 10. The excitement within the packed auditorium of the Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology was palpable. The students watched in awe as celebrities from the world of entertainment, sports and politics came on stage and shared personal stories of trials and triumphs, along with tips for their young audience on how to persevere in life. The celebrities had been invited to speak at the summit and, over the course of the day, amid hip-hop performances, some impromptu waltzing and an overall exchange of notes, the event gave insight into how young India thinks and what it believes in. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik asks youths to look carefully at their priorities and political manifestoes and only then cast their precious votes.Whether it was with the Bollywood stars, such as Emraan Hashmi and Taapsee Pannu, or political leaders, such as Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik or members from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress, there was a spirit of liveliness and animation in the auditorium. Pannu opened up about difficult break-ups and facing rejection in the film industry. “It’s okay to fall, but it’s not okay not to get back up on your feet,” she said. Hashmi, on the other hand, made girls swoon as he waltzed with some of them on stage. The actor talked about his new film Why Cheat India, and how cheating has become an organised racket, helping undeserving candidates pass crucial exams to become medical professionals and engineers. However, the audience seemed more interested in knowing the story of his first kiss, first crush and his chemistry with his on-screen heroines.advertisementBut the personal stories of Bollywood actors wasn’t the only thing that engaged the crowd at Mind Rocks 2019. They were equally mesmerised by the intensity of political debates.This was an example of how, as india today Group Editorial Director Raj Chengappa rightly pointed out, “The India of today and tomorrow” is beginning to take an interest in politics and has an opinion on various issues-whether it is the 10 per cent reservation for the economically weak general category, or potential candidates for India’s next prime minister. Patnaik spoke to the students about the importance of prioritising issues before selecting the party they vote for. “Look very carefully at your priorities and then the political manifestoes to see which ones you believe in the most and only then cast your precious votes,” the chief minister advised the generation, which is becoming increasinglydifficult to woo with poll lollipops or religion. Actor Emraan Hashmi danced on stage with some of the students.The session with members of Parliament, such as Congress’s Sushmita Dev, Biju Janata Dal’s (BJD) Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo and BJP’s Nishikant Dubey, saw some fireworks in the Narendra Modi versus Rahul Gandhi debate.The recently cleared constitutional provision to provide 10 per cent reservation to the economically weak in the general category saw lack of support in the room. Instead, the students talked about equal opportunities in employment, and Deo’s comment that the “country needs to move towards a 100 per cent merit-based system with equal opportunities for all”, received a huge applause, drowning Dubey’s attempts to justify the announcement regarding the reservation as one that the Congress and UPA had overlooked in the past. Dev described it as one of Prime Minister Modi’s many “fire-fighting laws”, a damage control approach to fix “zero job creation”. While the BJP MP predicted a clear majority of 400 seats for Modi in the coming general election, the BJD predicted a hung house with the National Democratic Alliance and the United Progressive Alliance getting, at best, 160 and 140 seats, respectively. Even as Odisha’s ruling party, BJD chose the middle path, siding with neither the BJP nor the Congress, the audience was forthright about their opinions, leading Dubey to commit that the saffron party will “make sure that the youth get jobs and the Ram Mandir also gets built”, amid loud cheers for Modi. Taapsee Pannu at Mind RocksAlong with Modi, the crowd also cheered for the common man as 48-year-old Odisha-born IPS officer Basant Kumar Rath posted in Jammu and Kashmir declared his love for Kashmir. According to Rath, the streets of Srinagar are sacred to him. “Kashmir people are my people and I cannot demonise them,” he said, adding that he feels sympathetically towards the stone-pelters and that he wouldn’t mind getting killed in Kashmir as long as he has the love of the Kashmiri people.advertisementFormer Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin, too, was received with a lot of enthusiasm when he spoke of India’s chances in the Cricket World Cup 2019. YouTube comedian Bhuvan Bam received the warmest welcome at the summit.However, the biggest applause seemed to have been reserved for Bhuvan Bam, a YouTube comedian with 11 million subscribers. The comedian, for once, was rendered speechless amid the din of the crowd shouting his name. Bam, who makes the world laugh with his funny and quirky characters inspired by everyday life, confessed that he has his moments of doubts and anxiety too. “I am always afraid of [my popularity] slipping away. Such popularity cannot be taken for granted,” he said. “Thinking you’re the best is the worst thing you can do to yourself.” Playback singer Nikhita Gandhi believes that one should pursue some creative activity along with studies to develop a certain level of concentration.As the day gathered pace, so did the enthusiasm of the audience. There was a musical performance by playback singer Nikhita Gandhi, famous for numbers such as Qaafirana and Raabta, and later a dance performance by the Prince Dance Group, winners of talent show India’s Got Talent in 2009. The inspiring story of the dance group, who overcame challenges and hardships on their way to success, taught the audience perhaps the most meaningful lesson of the day: it is often on the darkest nights that we see the brightest stars.You’ve reached your article limitSign in to keep reading India TodaySign inSign up NOW to get:Premium content on Aaj Tak HD ChannelUnrestricted access to India Today magazine contentGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
