Mourinho speaks on bringing Neymar to Manchester United

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has admitted it will be “impossible” to bring in Neymar from Barcelona and it would be “absurd” for him to ask the club’s hierarchy to try.

Neymar has been linked with a move to England recently, despite signing a new deal with the La Liga champions.

The deal will keep the Brazilian forward at the club until 2021 and raised his buyout clause to €200m for the first year of the deal, €222m for the second and will then increase to €250m for the remaining three years.

Speaking with ESPN Brasil on Wednesday, Mourinho reacted to reports linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

“It’s speculation. I always try to be objective and pragmatic with clubs and to ask them what they can give me. To ask for Neymar is absurd,” the former Real Madrid manager said.

“A club like Barcelona can not and will not lose Neymar. Although Messi is still a young player with years ahead of him, he’s almost 30, and Neymar will be the great player of Barcelona post-Messi. So much that I think it [trying to sign Neymar] is like trying to break into a safe, impossible.”

Neymar has scored 14 goals and provided 23 assists in 35 matches for Barcelona this season.

Arsenal icon Patrick Vieira brilliantly explains why N’Golo Kante ‘is not doing his job’ at Chelsea

Arsenal great Patrick Vieira has explained why N’Golo Kante ‘is not doing his job’ – but don’t worry Chelsea fans. He still adores the midfielder!

Antonio Conte brought Kante to Stamford Bridge for a fee of £32million last summer and the 26-year-old is a shoo-in to be named PFA Player of the Year off the back of a sensational debut season with the Blues.

Eden Hazard recently suggested that Chelsea had basically signed ‘twins’ when they bought Kante and Vieira feels similarly about Conte’s incredible signing from Leicester City.

‘The man is not doing his job… he’s doing more than his job!’ New York City boss Vieira said in an interview with Copa90.

‘Looking at the comments from the Chelsea players and even at Leicester they love him because the guy is working for the team.

Neymar is the best player in the world at the moment

The heated debate as to whether Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest footballer on earth is coming to an end.

It’s neither.

The new kid on the top is Neymar da Silva Santos Junior.

Neymar is emerging as the best player in the world thanks to his fine recent form

If Barcelona could be bullied, threatened or blackmailed into selling him the enormity of the money would make that assessment as difficult to argue with as Neymar’s inspiring of Brazil to become the first nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals.

Neither the size of the transfer fee nor the scale of the weekly pay packet is the most reliable yardstick by which to measure genius.

That is manifestly the case with Paul Pogba, currently the record purchase at £89.3million.

But when Manchester United are ready to virtually double that deal – a dubious one given Pogba’s posturing form at Old Trafford to date – by shipping out £173m to Catalonia then who are we to argue with the judgement of Jose Mourinho?

Less so when apparently they are ready to pay Neymar £416,000 a week, a rise from his current seven-day stipend of £260,000 which would leave Leo and Ronnie feeling they are earning peanuts.

Spanish newspaper reports of United’s all-costs desire to buy this sunshine boy gain credibility when the Special One tells ESPN television that dearly as he would love to recruit Neymar ‘it would be like me trying to break into a safe.

‘Impossible.’

Spanish media report Neymar would cost Manchester United an eye-watering £173million

‘Even Jesus did not please everyone’ – Ronaldo artist defends sculpture of Madrid star

The unveiling of a piece of work to honour the Portuguese superstar at Madeira airport has caused quite a stir, but the forward is said to be a fan

The artist behind a much-maligned sculpture of Cristiano Ronaldo claims the Real Madrid superstar is happy with the design.

An unveiling at Madeira airport on Wednesday caused quite a stir, with the design being questioned by many.

Ronaldo was on hand to pass judgement on the work, though, and was happy to pose for photographs as he was honoured by the island on which he grew up.

Emanuel Santos, creator of the piece, insists the 32-year-old also gave his approval before the grand reveal, with the Euro 2016 winner clearly not overly concerned by the opinion of others.

“Even Jesus did not please everyone. This is a matter of taste, it’s not as simple as it seems,” Santos said in an interview with Portuguese website Globo Sports.

“I used photos of Cristiano Ronaldo that I searched on the internet as a base. I put the photos next to me and started working on the bust.

“What matters is the impact that this work generates. There is always the possibility of making a difference, I was prepared for all this.”

Santos added: “Cristiano saw the photos that his brother sent him. I was with the brother at Cristiano’s museum in Madeira and from the messages he sent, I could tell that he liked what he saw.”

 

Happy and honored to have my name given to the Madeira airport! ✈️👍

A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano) on

While not addressing the issue of the sculpture directly, Ronaldo did speak of his delight at seeing his achievements recognised in his native Portugal.

He said: “Seeing my name being given to this airport is something very special, everyone knows that I am proud of my country and especially my home city.

“Thank you very much to the president of the regional government Miguel Albuquerque for having had the courage and the firmness to do it.”

The 32-year-old later posted on Twitter: “Happy and honored to have my name given to the Madeira airport!”

The tribute has also been welcomed by Portugal’s president, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, with Ronaldo considered to be “an example of excellence [that] projects Madeira and Portugal across the world far more than anybody else.”

Ronaldo is the current holder of the prestigious Ballon d’Or crown – a title has now claimed on four occasions – while his efforts in Madrid this season have delivered 26 goals to domestic and Champions League campaigns.

Game of Thrones’ releases promo trailer for Season 7 — with White Walker twist

Winter is… most definitely here already.

The latest promo trailer for Season 7 of HBO’s hit show “Game of Thrones” is upon us.

The clip is only a minute and a half, but it is chock-full of pertinent Season 7 information.

To the tune of “Sit Down” by the artist James, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and the Mad Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) strut over to their respective thrones.

Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen in the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 official promo trailer.

Jon is still in Winterfell, where he was heroically coronated as King in the North in Season 6. Dany is at Dragonstone on her way to Westeros, to presumably usurp the Mad Queen. And, speaking of which, Cersei’s blithe walk across the Red Keep shows she’s confident, but certainly not untouchable. (Oh, there’s a larger, undead reason for that statement, too.)

In years past, “Thrones” would tease their upcoming seasons with promos about winter arriving and other factions jockeying for position in the realm.

Now, the plot has thickened a good bit, because the Night King is in the picture. (We sort of want to panic, but we also have the popcorn ready.)

The king and his seemingly impenetrable line of White Walkers are making their way toward the realm, minimizing whatever trivial pursuit the show’s main powers are engaged in.

A Khaleesi-Jon alliance could possibly expel the White Walkers, but with Cersei in the picture, there’s little hope of a kingdom-wide army mobilizing to jab dragonglass into the heart of Walkers.

The biggest takeaway from the trailer comes at the very end, when Cersei breathes on the Iron Throne — and icy vapors encapsulate the breath.

It turns out they’re all inside the frozen eye of a White Walker (who could very well be that resolute Night King).

“Thrones” returns July 16, 2017 for its penultimate, seven-episode season.
