Highlights: The Trump presidency on April 13 at 9:30 P.M. EDT/0130 GMT on Friday

( ) – Highlights for U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration on Thursday:

AFGHANISTAN

The United States drops a massive GBU-43 bomb, the largest non-nuclear bomb it has ever used in combat, in Afghanistan against a series of caves used by Islamic State militants, the Pentagon says.

NORTH KOREA

Trump says Pyongyang is a problem that “will be taken care of” amid speculation that North Korea is on the verge of a sixth nuclear test.

Military force cannot resolve tension over North Korea, China warns, while an influential Chinese newspaper urges Pyongyang to halt its nuclear program in exchange for Beijing’s protection.

The Trump administration is focusing its North Korea strategy on tougher economic sanctions, possibly including intercepting cargo ships and punishing Chinese banks doing business with Pyongyang, U.S. officials say.

RUSSIA

Trump says “things will work out fine” between the United States and Russia, a day after declaring U.S.-Russian relations may be at an all-time low.

FEDERAL RESERVE

Trump signals he could be moving closer to the mainstream on monetary policy, saying he has not ruled out reappointment of Janet Yellen as Federal Reserve chair as he considers his choices for the U.S. central bank. [nL1N1HL14B]

ABORTION

Trump signs a resolution that will allow U.S. states to restrict how federal funds for contraception and reproductive health are spent, a move cheered by anti-abortion campaigners.

DEUTSCHE BANK

Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen presses Deutsche Bank to release information about issues including Trump’s debt and any bank meetings with Trump administration officials, saying he has “great concern” about possible conflicts of interest.

EXPORT-IMPORT BANK

Trump’s office says he plans to revive the hobbled Export-Import Bank of the United States, a victory for American manufacturers such as Boeing Co and General Electric Co that have overseas customers that use the agency’s government-backed loans to purchase their products.

FINANCIAL REGULATION

Top Wall Street bankers say they are having positive discussions about financial regulation in Washington, and downplay the idea U.S. policymakers may force their institutions to split up.

TRADE WITH JAPAN

The United States is pushing for trade to be a key issue in top-level economic talks with Japan, a source says, an unwelcome development for Tokyo, which is seeking to fend off U.S. pressure to reduce the bilateral trade imbalance.

IMMIGRATION

Trump’s administration has focused on one group of illegal immigrants more than others: women with children, according to eight Department of Homeland Security officials interv上海夜生活论坛iewed by about agency planning.

Democratic voter-intimidation cases falter in three U.S. states

WASHINGTON ( ) – Democrats fell short in three U.S. states on Monday in their legal battle to impose tighter restrictions on supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump who plan to monitor Election Day voting for signs of fraud.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to reimpose new rules on partisan poll watchers in Ohio after an appeals court struck them down, while U.S. judges in Pennsylvania and North Carolina declined Democrats’ request to impose new rules that Democrats had sought.

Voter intimidation is prohibited under U.S. law, but Democrats worry that Trump’s warnings of a “rigged” election in his battle against Democrat Hillary Clinton might inspire supporters to 上海夜生活论坛harass minority voters and create Election Day chaos in big cities as they search for signs of vote manipulation.

Numerous studies have found that U.S. voter fraud is exceedingly rare.

Democrats have asked U.S. courts in six battleground states to impose greater restrictions on partisan poll watchers, arguing that the Trump campaign, state Republican parties and Republican operative Roger Stone are encouraging supporters to intimidate minority voters.

Trump’s campaign and Republican parties in the various states say their poll watchers are trained to bring evidence of any problems to the party and not confront voters directly.

“This was an attempt to intimidate Republican people engaging in lawful activity,” North Carolina Republican Party executive director Dallas Woodhouse told .

Stone says those working for his planned “exit poll” will be trained to use neutral, non-threatening language.

One day before the election, Democrats so far have failed to win any of their legal efforts.

A U.S. judge denied the Democrats’ case in Arizona on Friday. Monday’s rulings in North Carolina and Pennsylvania give Democrats little time for appeals, while the Supreme Court’s Monday ruling put to rest the case filed in Ohio.

The Supreme Court order, which only covers the Ohio case, included no noted dissents from the eight justices. Liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a brief statement noting that “Ohio law proscribes voter intimidation” and citing the relevant law.

U.S. judges in Michigan and Nevada have yet to issue opinions.

Democrats have waged a separate legal battle against the Republican National Committee, arguing in court that the RNC should be prevented from supporting the Trump campaign’s poll-watching effort. A U.S. judge in New Jersey denied that motion on Saturday.

Oil rebounds as Trump says letter revives China trade hopes

HOUSTON ( ) – Brent oil futures settled slightly higher on Thursday, rebounding from a drop after U.S. President Donald Trump revived investor hopes that the United States might not raise tariffs on Chinese imports, a step that could hit economic growth and crimp oil demand.

The trade dispute between the world’s two biggest economies and a sharp drop in global equity markets has hit oil prices, outweighing geopolitical tensions and supply cuts that have lowered global supplies from Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.

Brent settled 2 cents higher at $70.39 a barrel, rebounding from a session low of $69.40 a barrel. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures settled down 42 cents at $61.70 per barrel.

Prices bounced off session lows after Trump said he received a “beautiful letter” from Chinese President Xi Jinping. Trump quoted the letter as saying: “Let’s work together let’s see if we can get something done.”

The letter fed investor hopes Washington and Beijing might clinch a trade deal, said Bob Yawger, director of energy futures at Mizuho in New York.

The trade row has dragged economic growth in Asia and a breakdown in Sino-American negotiations could call global crude demand forecasts into question, said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital Management LLC.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration expects global oil demand to rise by 1.4 million barrels per day (bpd) this year.

“It’s why OPEC is being a bit stingy with barrels,” Kilduff said, referring to output cuts by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies including Russia. “They don’t want to step into that situation if the trade talks go off the rails.”

OPEC’s top producer Saudi Arabia has been reluctant to add barrels to global supply because it fears a price crash, even as the organization is unsure of global supplies for the second half of the year, OPEC sources said.

U.S. sanctions on Venezuela and Iran, and threats to oil supplies in Nigeria in Libya have supported oil prices, mitigating the impact of the trade dispute, analysts said. Brent and WTI have risen more than 30 percent so far this year.

“The supply uncertainty is what’s holding the (U.S. oil) market above $60 a barrel,” said Phillip Streible, senior market strategist at RJO Futures in Chicago. “The demand uncertainty is what has it in the red today. But we’re holding pretty good.”

Earlier this week, data showing a surprise drop in U.S. crude inventories also buoyed prices.

The U.S. tariffs on $200 b上海夜生活论坛illion of Chinese goods would rise to 25 percent without a deal on Friday. China has threatened to retaliate, triggering a flight to safety among investors.

Libya agrees $34 billion budget for 2019 after months of disputes

TRIPOLI ( ) – Libya’s U.N.-backed administration agreed with the central bank and other players on a 2019 budget worth 46.8 billion dinars ($33.83 billion), it said on Monday after months of arguments.

The “financial arrangements”, as the budget is called officially, mark an increase from last year’s 42 billion dinars.

Libya has no proper budget as authority is divided between the U.N.-backed Tripoli government and a parallel administration allied to the internationally recognized parliament in the east, part of a conflict since the toppling of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

The central bank therefore agrees with Tripoli – with the tacit agreement of authorities in the east mediated by Western powers and international institutions — on a budget mainly covering public salaries and fuel subsidies for the whole country.

The Tripoli government and the central bank had been arguing over how to use funds raised by a 183 per cent fees slapped on hard currency transactions since autumn. 

The fees are aimed at bridging a gap between official and black market rate by moving the official rate to effectively 3.9 versus one dollar. Before it was 1.4.

The上海夜网 black market rate has fallen since then to around 4.1 from 6.

“After extensive discussion a total value of the financial arrangements (of) 46.8 billion dinars was agreed upon,” the government said in a short statement. It gave no details.

PG&E close to reshaping leadership with investor backing: WSJ

( ) – PG&E Corp is close to naming a new chief executive officer and revamping its board backed by some of its largest investors, the Wall Street Journal said on Saturday, as the power utility restructures after filing for bankruptcy because of potential liabilities from California wildfires.

Bill Johnson, who is set to retire as the CEO of Tennessee Valley Authority in April, is the front-runner to get the top job at PG&E, the Journal reported.

PG&E has also made offers to 10 new independent board candidates and is expected to unveil the slate as soon as next week, saying it has significant shareholder support, according to the report.

Johnson’s new role, which could also be announced next week, has not yet been finalized and other candidates were still being interviewed, the newspaper added.

The utility filed for bankruptcy protection in January in anticipation of liabilities from the wildfires, including the catastrophic 2018 Camp Fire that killed 85 people.

PG&E declined to comment, while no one was available at U.S.-owned TVA to comment on Saturday.

A trio of activist investors, that together own nearly 10 percent of PG&E stock, has been working with the company to change its management, the Journal reported.

The three hedge funds, Abrams Capital Management LP, Knighthead Capital Management LLC and Redwood Capital Management LLC, said in a filing on Friday they had agreed with PG&E to work together to appoint a new CEO and refresh its board. bit.ly/2HqIxyM

The board slate 上海夜生活论坛they have helped PG&E assemble is expected to include experts on cyber security, nuclear security and restructurings, the Journal said.

PG&E’s previous CEO, Geisha Williams, stepped down in January after less than two years on the job.

Last month, the company said it expected only five of its current 10-strong board to stand for reelection at an annual shareholder meeting in May. It also said it expected the board to include 11 independent directors by the time of the meeting, without specifying how big the board would finally be.

The Journal said the efforts of the three investors are separate from those of another PG&E investor, BlueMountain Capital Management, which earlier in March named its own slate of 13 people it hopes to install as directors at the embattled power utility.

Howe: “The key period is about to begin now”

Eddie Howe, the Bournemouth coach, knows very well that his team are about to enter the key period of the whole season as his Bournemouth are about to play a lot of matches in the upcoming weeks.

It was clear that Bournemouth were not about to gain something from their last match against Manchester City and Eddie Howe admitted that he was focusing more on the upcoming period that on that particular match. The Cherries were beaten 4-0 by the Premier League leaders and they were clearly the worse side for the majority of the fixture so this loss was deserved.

The talented British coach spoke about the upcoming series of matches as he said, according to Sky Sports: “Those games will take on even more significance. We came here trying to get something but we knew it would have been incredibly difficult and we have to look at these games [against United, Liverpo上海夜生活论坛ol and City] as one-offs because of the quality of opposition we were playing. We had an incredibly tough run but my hope is the players have come through it okay and we’re ready to go into an important spell for us.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He continued by adding that his side did well in the match against City: “I thought we did okay. It was a huge task for us today, not just the team we were facing but also the injuries we’ve got. We were okay in the game until we conceded the first goal, which was our own doing, and it was hugely frustrating with the game plan we had. From then on it is difficult.”

In the end, Howe admitted that the second goal meant that the match was over: “The second goal is the killer for us. We still had a go to try to chase it and then opened ourselves up to concede a couple more. I’ve not spoken to [Stanislas] but I think it’s his hamstring feeling tight. We had a patched up team anyway and to lose another important player for us made it very difficult. It was a difficult afternoon.”

Preview: Austria Vienna – AEK Athens

The last round of games in Europa League (EL) Group D sees a straight shootout between Austria Vienna (third) and AEK Athens (second) to see who will progress to the next phase as the second-placed team. For Vienna, nothing but a win will suffice which will give them the edge on AEK due a superior head-to-head, while AEK only need to avoid defeat.

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Both sides come into this game on the back of contrasting fortunes. Vienna are on a quite miserable run, winning just three games out of their last fourteen in all competitions and losing nine (two draws). The second most successful club (to Rapid) in the Austrian game find themselves in a mid-table position in their home league, a whopping 18 points off Salzburg in top spot.

AEK are in much better health and find themselves top of the Greek Super League after going on a run on five unbeaten games in the league and nine in all competitions. Striker Marko Livaja has scored five goals in his last four league games in that time and also notched two in the 2-2 draw between the sides on matchday two, including the last minute equalizer.

Vienna have lost both of their home ties in this year’s EL, and face a side in AEK who have so far gained more points on the road than at home (four as opposed to three). Indeed, Vienna are winless in their last seven European home games (D2, L5) and have one solitary victory to their name in 15 EL/UEFA Cup group games at home! AEK are yet to taste defeat in their last seven European games, drawing the last four, but have only scored in one away game in their last five EL away days!Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

With AEK just needing a point and already managing to cancel out group winners AC Milan twice among their four draws, this might turn out to be a hard night for Vienna against a disciplined Greek defence. However, Vienna captain Raphael Holzhauser was upbeat ahead of the game, saying: “It’s time for a home win, there is no better way.” Only time will tell if his confidence was justified.

Missing players

Austria Vienna: R. Almer (knee injury), A. Grunwald (injury), F. Klein (injury), C. Martschinko (knee injury), H. Westermann (knee injury), A. Borkovic (doubtful),上海夜生活 V. Demaku (doubtful)

AEK Athens: J. Johansson (knee injury), P. Mantalos (knee injury), U. Cosic (doubtful), K. Lamropoulos (doubtful), A. Traustason (doubtful), A. Vlachomitros (doubtful).

Clattenburg talks about Premier League leave

The 42-year-old revealed what caused him to quit his job in England and go through a change of scenery.

Mark Clattenburg insists he made up his mind to give up on being a referee in England following a game between Stoke City and Manchester United. After the final whistle, the Red Devils’ boss went to the officials’ dressing room and questioned Clattenburg’s penalty decision, which got to the Englishman.

The 42-year-old referee is now working as head for refereeing at the Saudi Arabian Football Federation after a 13-year spell in England.

While on the Men in Blazers podcast, Clattenburg spoke about his decision to leave the Premier League and start over somewhere else.

“I was refereeing the game when Wayne Rooney broke Bobby Charlton’s record and Mourinho came into my dressing room and he was unhappy about a handball penalty that I didn’t give.Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

“I’d walked off that pitch at Stoke, which was always the coldest stadium, it was always wet and miserable, and refereeing Man United was never an easy match.

“To come off that match it felt immense that I’d actuall上海夜网y had a good performance, and for him to come into my dressing room and criticise my performance for a handball that I’d seen, that had clearly come off his chest, I knew that I was right but he’d put a seed of doubt into my mind.

“I drove home 250 miles thinking I’d made a big error, my wife knew my attitude had changed, and I thought to myself, ‘Do I really want to be a part of this anymore? Do I really want to referee?’

“And I went soul-searching, I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I used to and I had to get out.”

Toshack uncertain of Bale’s future in Spain

The Wales international has been struggling with injuries ever since arriving at the Bernabéu.

Gareth Bale’s inconsistent fitness situation is making things really difficult for the club and could lead to a transfer, according to former Wales and Real Madrid boss John Toshack.

Bale is currently going through his 18th injury that has forced him on the sidelines since joining Real Madrid from Tottenham in 2013. The Welshman has certainly enjoyed successful times at his new club, securing three Champions League trophies and a La Liga trophy, but his inability to stay available for the first squad is proving to be a problem for Los Blancos. This has caused a lot of controversy regarding his future in Spain, with Manchester United considered a long-time admirer of the winger.

“His injuries are probably hindering him now.” Toshack told El Larguero regarding Bale’s situation.

“He has missed so many matches and despite Madrid winning so many matches and trophies, i上海夜生活t must be hugely frustrating.Juan Mata backs Solskjaer to end Man United’s trophy drought Andrew Smyth – Juan Mata is convinced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will end Manchester United’s trophy-drought sooner rather than later.

“Should he move to another club? Only people at Madrid will know about this but the demands at the Bernabéu are very, very high.

“If you are less than 100 per cent physically fit, it becomes even harder.

“He is now 28 and 11 years after making his debut with me at 17, these should be the best years of his life.

“The entire BBC [Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo] now has problems and for various reasons, such as others now coming through, I’m unsure we’ll see much more of them together from now on.”

Madrid: A change in formation

Real Madrid are trying to find a way to end their struggles, and the coachg staff are looking into a possible change in formation

The coaching team of Real Madrid are desperately searching for a solution to the current crisis at the club that includes back-to-back defeats, MARCA reports.

Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, assisted by David Bettoni and Lluis Lopis are trying to find a medicine for Real’s sickness.

They want to get their team back on track as Los Blancos suffer from poor form besides having tactical concerns, leaving open spaces for rivals to attack.

The solution that seems the easiest maybe would be to return to a 4-3-3 formation, one that fans could see in action, until Zidane could use it, with Gareth Bale being a key player in it.

Since the Welsh winger’s constant injuries however, Madrid changed to a 4-4-2, where Isco’s excellence could be used for their advantage.

The question is whether Zidane will change tactics against Las Palmas on Sunday, or will he wait until the next international break? It’s hard to tell, as Madrid is in desperate need of a redemption, but Bale is expected to return after the break, which could force the French manager to change his tactics once again.Wijnaldum looking to repeat Champions League success Nedim Maric – Liverpool are the reigning winners of the Champions League. However, this isn’t stopping them for aiming to get the glory once again.After a perfect…

It’s also possible that Zidane will look to revive the width of the side which has disappeared since Isco pla上海夜网ying centrally behind Ronaldo as a traditional centre forward in the middle, without drifting to the left.

This would allow Cristiano Ronaldo to find more space out wide just like he did most of his career, and hopefully rediscover his form.

Los Blancos have quite a few options to switch to a 4-3-3 even without Bale. Besides Ronaldo playing on the left wing and Benzema being the centre-forward, the right side could be occupied by Lucas Vasquez or Marcos Asensio, giving Madrid the width it requires.

It’s interesting to see that throughout the season, Los Blancos have always switched formations during the game. In fact, they often changed to a completely different one than what they have started with.

In their last two defeats, against Girona and Tottenham for example, the defense has ended the game with three actual defenders, and their full-backs played more like wing-backs.

Whatever the coaching team decides, they better get Los Blancos back to winning ways, as they are already behind Barcelona by 8 points.

Batshuayi will finally get his chance, says Conte

The Belgium international will start for the Blues against Crystal Palace as he steps in for injured Alvaro Morata.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has lauded Michy Batshuayi’s progress at the club as he intends to count on the striker in the forthcoming Premier League feature. Chelsea’s starting forward Morata suffered a hamstring injury against Manchester City, which leaves Batshuayi with a gre上海夜生活网at chance to prove he deserves a spot in the starting XI.

Despite his goal-scoring record of netting every 68 minutes, Michy has struggled to hold down a spot in Chelsea’s starters. Yet, Conte admits he is more impressed with the way the forward is moving on the pitch.Willian: Chelsea must become more clinical Andrew Smyth – Willian feels that Chelsea still have things to improve on after missing numerous chances during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Brighton.

“I think if you compare Michy with last season he has improved a lot and he understood this league because it is not simple,” Conte stated as quoted by Goal. “He understood our style of football but he is another young player and he is working very hard to improve.

“This season he is finding many opportunities to play in the Champions League, in the league, to come on during the game, and to start the game. If you remember last season he had few opportunities to play but this season he is playing a lot and the most important thing is to show he is improving.

“Also don’t forget as a striker I can utilise Hazard. Last season we played two games with Hazard as a No.9, alongside Willian and Pedro. If I see a game where this is the solution I am ready to do that again but Michy is deserving to have opportunities to show he can play.”

Ballon d’Or shortlist announced

The list of nominees for the prestigious award has been announced throughout the day.

France Football, the publication that awards the trophy has already announced the 30 names on the shortlist for this year’s award. The Ballon d’Or trophy was previously affiliated with FIFA, for the period 2010 to 2015, but since then, it has returned to the French publication.

For the past nine years, either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo have picked up the trophy. Ronaldo won his fourth Ballon d’Or last year and therefore moved just one behind Messi. The odds are favouring the Portuguese to equal the record of Messi and win his fifth this year.Top 5 most incredible snubs from football awards in 2019 Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Even though award season still hasn’t finished, we need to talk about the Top 5 most incredible snubs from football in 2019.Every year we…

Spalleti happy with his current squad

The Italian coach insists he has ‘a perfect squad’ at his disposal.

Inter head coach Luciano Spalletti believes the team he is managing in great and promised they would show that. Despite a rather quiet transfer window for the Nerazzurri, their manager is more than happy with the players he is currently working with.

“We expected a different transfer market it’s true,” Spalletti confessed in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I was convinced I could cook with certain ingredients. No上海夜生活论坛w though I’m 100 per cent satisfied.

“Being a professional means having expertise and passion for what you do, and 55-60,000 people will come to the stadium on Sunday because they’re convinced by what the lads have done so far.

“We’re starting 29 points down on Juve, 25 on Roma and 24 on Napoli, so we need seven or eight more wins in the league [than last season].

“Everyone has to improve but I have a perfect squad, and we’ll show you. We signed people who fit the bill.”

Dybala is content to remain

The Argentine international has been linked with a potential move to Barcelona as a replacement for Neymar.

Paulo Dybala insists he is happy at the Old Lady amid speculations about his future, but the decision is not his to make.

The Argentina international has been named replacement for Neymar at Camp Nou, should the Brazilian join Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

The 23-year-old Dybala joined the club from Turin in 2015 and has impressed with his performance ever since. He has won the Scudetto twice and assisted the team in reaching the Champions League final last season.

Speaking to the club’s website, the Argentine said:Higuain happy to be reunited with Ronaldo at Juve George Patchias – Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo have been reunited at Juventus after playing at Real Madrid together six years ago, and Higuain is happy about…

“I’m happy here,” he was quoted as saying by the club’s website.

“I’m fine with Juventus, I’m going to train at my best to make it a gr上海夜生活eat season.

“If an offer comes in, the club will notify me and they’ll tell me if they want to accept or not. First it depends on the club and then on me.”

The player still has a contract with Allegri’s side until 2022. He scored 19 goals in 48 appearances for Juventus last season and is deemed one of the greatest talents in Europe.

Wenger expects professionalism from his players

The Frenchman does not think he faces a major problem at Arsenal, with a number of first-team players entering the final year of their contracts.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil are still to renew their contracts, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs are also entering the last 12 months of their deals.

“I think it is an ideal situation. When you are a football player you perform until the last days of your contract.” – Wenger said, following Arsenal’s 1-2 loss to Sevilla, according to Sky Sports.

“I think the performance on the day does not depend on the length of the contract, if that was true we would sign everyone for 20 years and be happy.”Arsenal urged to sign Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly Andrew Smyth – Emmanuel Frimpong has urged Arsenal to target Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly in order to finally solve their defensive woes.

The French manager also stated that more and more players will start seeing out their contracts in their respective clubs due to the transfer market situation.

“In the future, I think you will se上海夜生活网e more often players going to the end of their contracts,” Wenger said.

“Why? Because transfers are becoming so high even for normal players that you will see more players going to the end of their contracts because no-one is going to want to pay what is demanded.

I’m convinced in the next 10 years that will become usual.”

Morata to persuade Real duo to join him at Manchester United

Alvaro Morata is already with one step on Old Trafford, and the Spanish striker is trying to persuade two of his Real Madrid teammates to join him in England.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. June 12, 2017.

The 24-year-old striker is set to become the most expensive Spanish player ever transferred, with Manchester United ready to pay €70m for his services. The previous record was the one of Fernando Torres, who moved from Liverpool to Chelsea in 2011, for €58,5m.

But Morata is not looking to come alone from Santiago Bernabeu to Old Trafford. According to his social media activity, the striker would entertain the idea of persuading two of his colleagues to join him at Manchester United.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

Alvaro Morata liked a recent post on a Manchester United fan page, which was stating that the striker “is set to join Manchester United and has told Gareth Bale to join him and make the United squad better, and James Rodriguez has been told by his stepfather to join United in the summer, to get more playing time.”

James Rodriguez has previously been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but recent reports suggest that he is closer to a move to PSG, with the Parisians lookin上海夜生活网g to strengthen their team after a failed season.

Regarding Gareth Bale, the Welshman could be sold by Real Madrid, who are looking to raise money and create space for the biggest transfer in history – Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

Claudio Ranieri might become the next manager of Nantes if French Football Federation approves the deal

French FF rule prevents clubs from appointing managers aged over 65Written by – Nikolay Nikolov, June 13, 2017.

Claudio Ranieri has agreed on a deal which can bring him back to football for the first time since he was sacked by Leicester City. However, the deal might not be approved by the French Football Federation due to his age.

The Italian is set to become the next manager of Ligue 1 club Nantes, who are awaiting a confirmation of the deal.

A rule states, that clubs cannot appoint managers who are over the age of 65, which is exactly the age that Ranieri turned in October last year.

Nantes president Waldemar Kita was confident that the deal will go through and expressed his interest in the experience that the Italian has.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

‘The league agrees, I believe that only the FFF is delaying the appointment a little, I do not know why.

‘What we are interested in is the experience of Ranieri as a footballer and coach, since we know that he has coached the biggest teams in Europe.’

Ranieri won the Premier League in his first season as a manager of Leicester City in 2015-16. However, he was sacked in February 2017 after series of disappointing results that left Leicester in relegation danger.

Ranieri’s experience includes managing Fiorentina, Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Juventus, Monaco and the Greece national team.

Now, he wan上海夜生活网ts to return to the French Ligue 1. Appointment of over 65 aged managers has been done before when Lens were allowed to appoint veteran coach Guy Roux.

Arda Turan was highly appreciated during his time at Vicente Calderon, while playing under Simeone. And is now considered the perfect foundation to paving the way for great things in the future. Although no official bid has been made yet, the €30m-rated midfielder will be approached in the following days.

Barcelona have paid €34m to Atletico for Turan’s transfer in 2015, who was unavailable for selection for a period of six-months, due to Barcelona’s UEFA ban of registering new players.

Arda Turan has won three trophies with Barcelona: La Liga title (2016), Spanish Cup (2016) and Spanish SuperCup (2016). He had his debut for the Turkish national team in 2006, and he has since then played 96 times, scoring 17 goals.

Buffon\u2019s classy gesture to Mbappe

上海夜生活The Italian goalkeeper has proved once again his character after the first leg of the UCL semi-finals between Monaco and Juventus.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. May 5, 2017.

The 39-year-old is a true legend of world football and continues to impress, both with his performances and with his character. Gianluigi Buffon made another perfect game on his 100th Champions League appearance against Monaco and has managed to keep another clean sheet. In doing so, he has reached 600 minutes without conceding a goal.

At the end of the game, Buffon chose to swap shirts with the young French goal scorer Kylian Mbappe. Buffon proved his legendary status and character when he explained his decision: “I remember when I was young, nobody wanted to swap shirts with me. I hated this. It was a proof of respect that I swapped shirts with Mbappe”.Inter Milan V Lazio: Players to Watch Taimoor Khan – Inter Milan are set to host Lazio at the San Siro on Thursday and the game is definitely going to be an exciting affair…

In this Champions League season, Buffon played ten games and only conceded two goals, both in the group stage: in the 1-1 draw against Lyon and in the 3-1 victory over Sevilla. Buffon managed to keep a clean sheet in the quarter-finals against Barcelona – 3-0 in Turin and 0-0 in Barcelona.

Gianluigi Buffon won the World Cup in 2006 with Italy, but he has never managed to win the Champions League. He came very close to the trophy twice: in 2003, Juve lost at penalties against Milan; and in 2015 when the final was played in Turin, but Barcelona won 3-1.

Chevron profit surges 26% on higher output, termination fee

HOUSTON ( ) – Chevron Corp reported a 26.3% jump in quarterly profit on Friday, as higher oil and gas production and a one-time breakup fee from its failed bid for a rival more than offset lower energy prices and a rise in expenses.

Results benefited from a $1 billion fee it received after Occidental Petroleum wrecked its $33 billion deal to buy Anadarko Petroleum with a winning $38 billion bid. The termination fee added $720 million to the quarter’s profit, Chevron said.

Its U.S. shale production rose 21% during the quarter, but was overshadowed by sharply weaker oil and gas prices. Like many of its rivals, Chevron also reported declining profits in its refining and chemicals units.

“Upstream earnings were slightly ahead of expectations, while downstream earnings came in slightly below, leaving net income in line” with forecasts,” said RBC analyst Biraj Borkhataria.

Shares were up a fraction at $120.76 in morning trading. The stock is up about 11% year to date.

Chevron abandoned its pursuit of Anadarko in May, refusing to increase its bid, saying it would not back down from a pledge not to dilute the returns it promised investors. Occidental this week said it expects to quic上海夜生活论坛kly close the purchase after Anadarko shareholders vote on Aug. 8.

The second-largest U.S. oil and natural gas producer’s daily production of oil and gas rose 9.1% to 3.08 million barrels, a record for the company. Its production in the Permian Basin, the top U.S. shale field, rose 21.5% over a the same period a year ago.

The company said it has resumed share buybacks that were suspended during its acquisition talks with Anadarko. It expects to buy $5 billion in its own shares this quarter.

Net income attributable to the company rose to $4.31 billion, or $2.27 per share, in the second quarter, from $3.41 billion, or $1.78 per share a year earlier. [bit.ly/2LYr4A0]
