De Ligt has now firmly established himself at the Johan Cruijff Arena this season and is now a regular for the Dutch national side under new manager Ronald Koeman at the age of 18 years old. Among Arsenal, it is believed that Barcelona have also held a strong interest in signing De Ligt with the Dutchman having been spotted recently in Catalunya with fellow rumoured target Justin Kluivert. Due to the ever increasing value being placed on De Ligt, Arsenal fear that he may soon be out of their reach and have listed Greece international Panagiotis Retsos as a suitable alternative for a young defender. The 19 year-old currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga after having completed a £15m deal from Greek giants Olympiacos.last_img read more

Report Man United in talks with Chinese club over Fellaini

first_imgAn unnamed Chinese club have been reportedly in negotiations with Manchester United over signing Marouane Fellaini.The 31-year-old midfielder has been at Old Trafford since the summer of 2013 after his former Everton boss David Moyes signed him for £27.5m on deadline day.Fellaini has been an ever-present figure in the United squad under Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.The Belgium international has only managed 31 minutes of action under interim coach Ole Gunner Solskjaer since replaced Mourinho on December 18.This is due to a calf injury Fellaini sustained in training with Solskjaer revealing on January 18 that the midfielder will likely be out for a “few weeks”.But Sky Sports reports that Fellaini’s time at United may be coming to a quicker an anticipated end after an approach from an unnamed Chinese club.Apparently, United and this club are locked in negotiations right now over Fellaini’s transfer to the Far East.This comes as a big surprise given that he only signed a new two-year deal last summer after allowing his original contract to run out at the end of last season.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.Despite the English transfer window closing on Thursday, neither United or this unnamed club will be in a hurry to conclude a deal with the Chinese Super League deadline set until February 28.Speaking in a press conference on Monday, Solskjaer had suggested that there would be no departures from Old Trafford come Thursday.“At the moment, I can see everyone staying at the club because no deal has been done with anyone I think, but then again there is still a few more days,” said Solskjaer.“But I am not too involved in the negotiations so whatever happens, happens. It will be good to get the window closed so we can just focus on the squad and just improving the ones that stay here.”Fellaini has managed 22 goals and 12 assists in 177 appearances for United across all competitions.The Belgian has won the FA Cup, EFL Cup, Europa League and Community Shield in his five and a half years at the Red Devils.Should a move to China go ahead, Fellaini will join his Belgium team-mate Mousa Dembele after he left Tottenham for Guangzhou R&F earlier this month.last_img read more

Mayor Faulconer announces San Diego River cleanup milestone

first_img KUSI Newsroom April 10, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced today that all city-owned property along the San Diego River has been cleaned at least once.The city owns roughly one-third of riverfront property, and employees have removed nearly 99 tons of debris from 32 locations since last September, he said.Faulconer said the cleanup will continue, particularly in regard to outreach and coordination with owners of the remaining two-thirds of land along the river.“The San Diego River is one of our most precious natural resources and we must continue to give it the care and attention it deserves,” Faulconer said. “While we’ve cleared all of the city’s property once, we still have a lot more work to do, so we’re encouraging every property owner next to the river to join our cleanup efforts and help preserve the San Diego River for future generations.”City employees have sent letters to 33 private property owners, including several businesses, that collectively own another third of riverfront property. Eight owners have allowed city employees to clean their property.Those who reject city services must clean their property or face fines ranging from $100 to $1,000, according to the mayor’s office.The remaining third of riverfront property is owned by a nonprofit and various government agencies, including the Metropolitan Transit System, Caltrans, San Diego River Park Foundation, California Department of Fish & Wildlife, U.S. Postal Service and County of San Diego.Rob Hutsel, president and CEO of the San Diego River Park Foundation, lauded city efforts to clean riverfront property.“Since this effort began, we have seen a dramatic difference along the river in the city,” Hutsel said. “There is less trash, fewer encampments and a new hope that a lasting improvement is being achieved.”Cleanup efforts are part of the “Clean SD” initiative, which launched May 2017. So far, crews have removed more than 1,000 tons of litter from illegal dumping hot spots in Ocean Beach, City Heights, San Ysidro, Logan Heights, Paradise Hills, Webster, Mission Beach, Point Loma and Pacific Beach.

Banks and other reputable institutions would never ask for this information without you approaching them first.• Do remember that if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.• Don’t assume that someone is who they say they are online.• Do remember: every time you like a post on Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media page, it tells advertisers more about you. That often means they can target you with tabloid-esque, sensational, and fake stories that they know will get a rise out of you. They make money off of it!• Don’t assume your political side of the aisle is immune to fake news. Lots of companies make money off of manufacturing fake or sensationalized stories (sort of like supermarket checkout tabloids), and they don’t discriminate – they make up stories that target both liberal and conservatives.• Do take advantage of free digital literacy classes offered by your local library, community center, or even technology vendors like the Apple Store, so you can learn how to use your devices.
