Cavani has lost much prominence this season in the PSG with the arrival of Mauro Icardi and, recorded, since January he can legally negotiate his future at the end of the contract at the end of the season. Everything indicates, therefore, that we are facing the last campaign of the Uruguayan in Paris.

I have been contacted to be the star of the team next season and the reporter the goals that controlled the Swede. It is the operation desired by the directors of the entity.

According to other sources, but also, the problem with the operation is that Cavani had a verbal commitment to David Beckham to join Inter Miami from 2020.

Conte: “The match with a capital letter is neither Barça nor Juve, it is against Sampdoria”

Conte: “The match with a capital letter is neither Barça nor Juve, it is against Sampdoria”

Antonio Conte, Inter coach, applies the slogan of ‘cholismo’ and goes game by game. Therefore, despite the fact that next week the Milanese team has a double level test, in the Champions League of Barcelona and in Serie A, against Juventus, Conte stressed that the important thing for him is called Sampdoria, his imminent rival. Saturday (6 pm) In the Italian League, where Inter dominates with five victories in the same number of matches. “For us, the capitalized match is that of Sampdoria,” he said. “Then we will think about it later. There are no other parts for us at this time, ”he added without wanting to enter the debate about rotations before what lies ahead.

The interest coach did not confirm or deny whether Romelu Lukaku will play or not. “It’s part of the group, period,” he said. Much more explicit and less political was with former Barça Alexis Sánchez, to whom he sent a message that sounded in a given notice. “I talked a lot about him because you always ask me the same question. It is up to us to let the streak and shine that has lost a bit in recent years, but is a strong player. Sooner or later you will see him in the field from the beginning, ”he said. Then, he extended the comment to his closet, perhaps to soften it. “We have room for improvement in everything and I have to improve the players in all aspects and points of view. We don’t have the magic wand to change everything in a short time, ”he said.

Conte said Antonio Candreva “is fine” and praised Danilo D’Ambrosio for his tactical wealth. “They have recovered. D’Ambrosio is a modern soccer player and can cover different roles. I am happy to have this type of player and his versatility at the football level is important to me, ”he emphasized.

Regarding the complete victory in Serie A, Conte was “happy with what we are doing,” but he warned that true greatness comes regularly in one season. “You must give continuity to the results. If you want to be the protagonist you must avoid the ups and downs. If you want to be really great, a great team must be continuous, have reliability and always maintain an important level, ”he described.

Conte did not want to compare the current Inter with the first Juve he directed. “Parallelism is difficult to do because situations are different. The first year in Juventus was very good to win the undefeated championship: we tied some matches and found a Milan with Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Robinho, Nesta and Gattuso, a strong team … They failed because they were the super favorites. Today we are not among the favorites because, as I have always said, Juve and Naples are above us in an important way, but this should not change our attitude, ”he warned.

For the Italian technician, the determining factor is “the balance”. “The defensive force involves all the lines, because in football the most important thing is to have a balance between the defensive and the offensive phase. We must know how to attack with eleven players, including the goalkeeper, to exploit the spaces, ”he summarized.

Cristiano Ronaldo charges more than five Serie A templates

After the Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ has published on Tuesday the net salaries of all the players who play in Serie A, a player who stands at the top of the list stands out by much difference.

This football player is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, who pockets 31 million euros each season from Juventus in Turin. In other words, Portuguese crack earns more money than five complete templates (Verona, Brescia, Udinese, SPAL and Parma) of Serie A and almost triple the money of the second highest paid player in the Italian league, than the Dutch Matthijs de Ligt that perceives eight million fixed plus another four in variables.
It should be noted that only Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan), with a salary between fixed and variable of nine ‘kilos’ per year, is the only player outside Juventus who is in the top-10 of the highest paid in Serie A.

Cristiano Ronaldo, 34, still has a contract with Juventus in Turin until 2022, so the Portuguese will continue to expand his checking account at a good pace during the next three campaigns. At that time, multimillion dollar deals will not be lacking either.

“I admire a lot what Messi has done and he felt sorry for me leaving”

“I admire a lot what Messi has done and he felt sorry for me leaving”

Cristiano Ronaldo spoke again of his rivalry with Leo Messi. The Portuguese crack has done it in an interview on TVI where he has told the relationship he has had with the Argentine star. The two best players in the world have five Golden Balls each and have coincided in time and space, when he was at Real Madrid, something that has allowed them to improve as the Portuguese soccer player acknowledges. “I have no doubt that Messi has made me a better player and vice versa,” he told TV1. The Portuguese player has confirmed that they maintain excellent professional treatment and how it has affected their rivalry on the pitch in their growth with the step of the years. “I admire a lot what Messi has done. He already said publicly when I left the Spanish League that he” felt sorry “, because he liked that rivalry. Messi had already admitted about the last three Champions that we had won that he felt a bit annoying. It’s normal, just like I would have liked to win titles he won with Barcelona ”

A healthy rivalry “It’s a good rivalry that exists in football, but it’s not unique. Michael Jordan had them in basketball, Ayrton Senna and Prost in Formula 1 … What they all had in common is that they were healthy rivalries. I have an excellent professional relationship with Messi because we have been sharing the same moments for 15 years, “Cristiano also clarified that Messi is as competitive and ambitious as he is, even in individual trophies. “When he sees me win trophies it must hurt, and the same for me when he does. I admire the career he has had,” Cristiano settled. Ronaldo even dared to say that he would share a table and tablecloth with Messi: “We have never had dinner together, but I don’t see why we can’t do it in the future. He’s Argentine, my girlfriend too, that’s why I don’t see any problem,” he concluded. .

Mauro Icardi has only two options to define his future

Mauro Icardi has only two options to define his future

Striker Mauro Icardi would have defined his future and he would only have two options left in this market of passes that he is hurrying. Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the attacker has become firm with Inter and has made clear what his position is. Icardi does not move from Inter, at least he has told the managers, unless the team that comes to look for him is Juventus.

Last season’s Serie A champion is the only destination that would leave Inter. That doesn’t worry Naples and Rome, which are the other clubs that have taken an interest in Icardi. According to the Italian press, both clubs will wait until the end to make some move for the Argentine. The future of Dybala, which could interest Inter, is another of the conditions that can affect the future of Icardi that after the last months of many doubts and where it seemed that he would leave Inter, today it is not so clear.

In the pre-crash against Inter, the technical director of Juventus explained what happened with the Portuguese striker

In the pre-crash against Inter, the technical director of Juventus explained what happened with the Portuguese striker

Last Sunday, the era of Maurizio Sarri led Juventus began. The champion of the last eight Scudettos set up a squad to go in search of the Champions League, with the arrival of soccer players such as Gianluigi Buffon, Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral, Cristian Romero (will remain on loan in Genoa), Luca Pellegrini, Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot

In the press conference prior to tomorrow’s duel against Inter, the former Chelsea coach clarified what happened with the Portuguese. “I asked him how he felt, because he had to play less minutes than I kept him on the field. He told me he was fine,” Sarri explained.

“In the first part of the season we want to use Cristiano Ronaldo in the same role in which he had his greatest performances; that is, as a forward by left. He is good at making a difference, as he already did during his career. another 10 will have to play accordingly, “said the technical director on the place that former Real Madrid will occupy within the playing field.
Despite rumors of a possible sale to Manchester United or an exchange with PSG (plus Blaise Matuidi and money) for the Neymar record, Sarri showed that Paulo Dybala will occupy an important place in his game scheme. “I could easily play as a kind of ‘fake nine’, but we could also find different solutions. You can play as a midfielder, behind two strikers,” he argued.

Tomorrow, from 8.30 at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center, Juventus will face Inter. His next friendly will be on August 10, against Atlético Madrid at the Friends Arena in Solna, Stockholm.

The captain of Senegal and European champion with Liverpool is close to achieving his most desired goal: to win the African Cup

The captain of Senegal and European champion with Liverpool is close to achieving his most desired goal: to win the African Cup

Sadio Mané, captain and great star of Senegal, member of the magic trident of Liverpool, surprised many by declaring at the end of June that “he would change the Champions League to win the African Cup”. And now, in his great year, Mané is two days away from becoming king of Africa as well as European champion.

Not in vain besides lifting the Champions after the triumph of the ‘reds’ on June 1 in the final against Tottenham (0-2) Mané conquered six days before the Golden Boot of the Premier, with 22 goals, shared with his partner in Liverpool Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The boy from Senegal whose hero was Ronaldinho
And now, if Senegal wins Algeria in the final on Friday, Mané, whose hero as a child in his country “was Ronaldinho”, will achieve his most desired goal: to bring the African Cup to his compatriots. These are his words of June on France Football: “It would be great to win for my country, which never won an African Cup. I would be willing to change it for the Champions. The return to Dakar (with the trophy) would be extraordinary. It’s my craziest dream. ”

Mané, 27, is already a symbol for his country and represents hope, the new generation that wins. He was the leader of the Senegalese team that got the return to the World Cup 16 years later, since 2002, when he reached the Russia 2018.

In this Africa Cup Mané has three goals and has failed two penalties. His coach, Aliou Cissé, said about his captain that “he has something unique, nothing is foreseeable in him, without a plan, he can make a difference at any time, in a dribbling, a pass or a percussion”. If he wins the African Cup, Mané will join the club of those who have won it and also the Champions League, like the Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o, the Algerian Rabah Madjer, the Ivory Coast’s Salomon Kalou and Touré Yaya, the Nigerians Finidi George and John Obi Mikel and the Ghanaian Abedi Pelé.

The collective before the individuality
Aliou Cissé affirmed about Mané that “he has his head on his shoulders, he understands that the collective passes over the individualities”. That is why the Senegal coach says his captain “does not think about the Golden Ball”. Trophy that would become one of the candidates if you add the African Cup to the Champions League (like his teammate Alisson has added the Copa América).

It is the third African Cup played by Mané (eliminated in 2015 in the first phase and in 2017 losing by penalties in the quarterfinals against Cameroon, 4-5 after a 0-0, collapsing when his maximum penalty was stopped). Senegal’s best performance in the African Cup dates back to 2002, when it was runner-up after losing the final against Cameroon also on penalties in Mali (2-3 after a 0-0).

Luka Jovic has written in The Player’s Tribune an article in which he reviews his childhood, talks about the illness of his sister, Benfica, Eintracht …

Luka Jovic, new player of Real Madrid, has written in ‘The Player’s Tribune’, a medium in which it is the athletes who directly write what they want without there being any newspaper filter in between. The Serbian attacker reviews his career so far, as well as the hard times that he and his family have gone through until they reach Real Madrid.

“In this life, all people have certain gifts, and I think mine is to score goals, I think I was born with it,” he explains about his ability to score goals, and continues: “I do not know how I ended up playing as a striker, but since As a child, I used to have two VHS tapes of all the goals scored in each World Cup until 2006, I think I remember being hypnotized with Roger Milla, of the Cameroon national team in Italy’90 , and of course Ronaldo (Nazario), I was obsessed with the way he did the bikes in front of the goalkeepers, I remember it was as fast as a magician’s trick, I practiced doing it at home, Ronaldo played football so easily, almost as if he were at 30%, and I thought it was incredible, his style and confidence left a mark on me. ”

The new white attacker also reviews his origins in the world of football: “I grew up in a place called Batar, it’s a really small place, with only 105 houses in the whole town, but for me it’s special. Once: ‘My village is prettier than Paris’, and that’s how I see it too, almost everyone works in agriculture, and if you ask them what they believe in, they’ll tell you two things: work hard and dream big Everyone in Batar works hard to save enough money and help their children go to college or move to a bigger city to work in. That happened to me: my parents worked hard to help me find my way in the There is one issue that I do not like to talk about much: when I was nine or ten years old, my older sister got very sick, that moment marked our lives, the doctors discovered that she had leukemia, and she was in and out of the hospital for a long time. My mother had to stop running the supermarket to take care of her. During a whole year, our family was divided. I lived with my dad and my grandfather, going to and coming to training sessions at the Red Star in Belgrade, while my mother stayed with my sister. ”

Origins in Batar
“When my sister overcame her illness, she gave me the courage to succeed, I wanted to be a winner like her.” My dream was like all the children in Batar: play for the Red Star and score against the Partizan in the Eternal Derby. Red, it’s all about winning, if you do not win, then it’s a failure, there’s a story a few years ago, when the team was struggling and had some financial difficulties, some of the players wrote a letter to the fans in the newspaper He said something like, ‘Look, things are difficult right now, the club can not even buy shampoo bottles for showers.’ The next day, some fans burst into players’ cars and put shampoo bottles on The seats – this is more than a football club – growing up in this environment gives you the confidence to never scare you for nothing. ”

He also briefly reviews his time at Benfica: “I decided to go to Benfica to advance my career. But I think everything happened very fast. My family means the absolute world to me and I really was not ready to leave them. Being 18 years old and moving 3,000 kilometers away, to a place where you do not speak the language … it’s not just football anymore. Your life is not simple. When I first arrived in Lisbon, I thought about my home and just started crying for no reason. It was a bad time in my career because I felt very lonely. But fortunately, everything changed when I was able to move to Eintracht Frankfurt. I will always love and appreciate Eintracht, because this is not a club that deals with money or expensive players. On the contrary, it is about chemistry and an incredible sense of union with the fans. I really started enjoying my football again when I moved there. When we won the German Cup in 2018, the whole atmosphere in the stadium and in the city was electric. It looked a lot like the Red Star, and I made a lot of friends in Frankfurt that I will keep forever. ”

“The last time I played for the Serbian national team, one of my teammates, Stefan Mitrović, said something like: ‘Man, the things you could do if you had your confidence’. It makes sense to me. How can you be a forward without having confidence? For that position, the most important part is not the beginning, it is the end. Trust is the most important thing for any striker. And I have a lot of confidence. I have never doubted my worth and I always believe that I am the best. Where will this story continue? What will I achieve? Which is the end? I do not know, but I have very big dreams … “

Manchester United and Arsenal aim to amuel Umtiti


There are several clubs interested in taking the services of Samuel Umtiti, especially from the Premier League, but the French does not seem willing to leave Barcelona, ​​although he has only played fifteen games this season.
Despite the wishes of the defender of 25 years, the Barca club has other plans in mind and has assessed the central in 60 million euros.

Manchester United and Arsenal, although the Gunners do not have so many funds, would be the main stakeholders in the Gallic, according to the British newspaper Daily Mail. The economic situation of Unai Emery, would leave the ‘reds’ better positioned , they explain.

Even so, we must bear in mind that Barça is focusing on the return of Neymar, therefore, the sale of Umtiti to PSG would be another option more than viable to facilitate the return of the Brazilian.
