Man Utd table lucrative £5.2m per year wages for Ighalo to beat off Chinese interest

first_img Ighalo’s goals have been influential in United tallying an unbeaten run stretching 11 matches, with fellow January arrival Bruno Fernandes also playing a crucial role. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already signalled his intentions to make the transfer permanent. “Odion has done really well when he’s come in and he’s enjoying himself,” Solskjaer said. “He will improve and get better, but he has qualities that we saw in him that we needed and we’ll still need those qualities for next season so let’s see what we do.” In other news, Portugal international Fernandes has expressed his desire to match his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo’s achievements at United.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… It is now the battle of the fittest as Manchester United set to prepare a three-year deal worth €6million (£5.2million) per year in wages for striker Odion Ighalo, according to reports. Ighalo has taken his opportunity with both hands at United Ighalo, who moved to United on loan from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua on deadline day in January, has hit the ground running with four goals in eight appearances. Indeed, the Nigerian’s strikes helped the Red Devils progress in the Europa League and FA Cup before the season was brought to a halt earlier this month. Previous reports have suggested that Ighalo was ‘seriously flattered’ by an offer of more than £400,000 per week from Shanghai. However, according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schria – via his Twitter account – United are trying just as hard to keep the striker at Old Trafford. Schria claims that United want to pay €15million to buy Ighalo outright and believe that their contract offer will be enough to convince the 30-year-old to stay in England, even if he is offered more to return to China. Ighalo‘s deal reportedly ends on May 31 – a month before the expiry date of standard loan spells – meaning United could earmark the Nigerian’s signing as a priority in the coming weeks.center_img Promoted ContentPlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your Body7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes8 Shows That Went From “Funny” To “Why Am I Watching This”Is This The Most Delicious Food In The World?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By Odeithlast_img read more

Cricket News Roger Federer Loses To Dominic Thiem, Faces Early Exit From Year-Ending ATP Finals

first_imgLondon: Roger Federer faces an uphill task to qualify for the last four of the ATP Finals after defeat by Dominic Thiem on Sunday following a masterclass by Novak Djokovic. Six-time champion Federer was beaten 7-5, 7-5 in the evening match on the opening day after Djokovic had swatted aside debutant Matteo Berrettini in the earlier Group Bjorn Borg contest in London. Federer and Djokovic will meet later in the week in a repeat of this year’s epic Wimbledon final, with two players advancing from the four-man group. The Swiss 20-time Grand Slam winner recovered quickly from being broken in the first game of the match but the Austrian fifth seed repeated the dose in the 11th game and took the opening set 7-5. Federer, uncharacteristically wayward, squandered an early chance to break in the second set and the games went with serve until the 11th game again, when Thiem broke to love after the third seed dumped a forehand into the net.The Austrian stuttered while serving for the match, forced to save two break points, but he held his nerve to take the set 7-5 and seal a deserved victory on his second match point. “I thought Dominic saved himself real well when he had to,” said Federer. “So I thought he played a tough first-round performance today, and my game was probably just not good enough, and the start didn’t help. It’s a normal tournament from here on forward,” added the 38-year-old, who may now have to beat Djokovic to progress. “Not allowed to lose anymore for me. That’s how it is every week of the year for the last 20 years, so from that standpoint there is nothing new there.” Thiem came into the match with a 4-2 winning record against his illustrious opponent but the result is still a surprise. The only time Federer has failed to progress to the knockout stages was in 2008. “We had a good and close match, and it’s always special to beat Roger, who is a legend,” said Thiem, who impressed with his clean hitting. “It’s amazing to play against probably the best player of all time, but luckily I have a pretty good record against him.” Earlier, Djokovic began his quest for a record-equalling sixth ATP Finals title and sixth year-end number one spot a 6-2, 6-1 romp against Berrettini. The Serbian was last week nudged off the top position in the rankings by Rafael Nadal, who is also in the eight-man field in London. Djokovic eyes No. 1 Djokovic must reach the final at the O2 Arena to stand any chance of dislodging Nadal but there are major questions over the Spaniard’s fitness. If the Serbian does claim the year-end number one spot, he would match the record of Pete Sampras and victory at the end-of-season event would equal Federer’s mark. The second seed saw off the challenge of Berrettini in just 64 minutes, converting five of seven break points and at one stage going on an eight-game streak. “It feels great to be back,” said the Wimbledon champion. “Earlier this year I had a great stay in London, and over the years I’ve played well in this arena.”Also Read | Rafael Nadal Faces Race Against Time To Being Fit For Year-Ending ATP FinalsNadal, who has never won the event, is bidding to clinch the year-end number one spot in the ATP rankings for a fifth time. The tournament, featuring the year’s best eight players, is contested in a round-robin format with the best four players and doubles teams reaching the knockout semi-finals stage. Nadal, in Group Andre Agassi, begins his campaign on Monday against defending champion Alexander Zverev.

WG boys basketball gets big wins over Corcoran, B’ville

first_imgHere, Amica could not match those totals – but he did not have to as the Wildcats did just enough to hold off Corcoran 67-66 for its eighth win in a row.All through the first half, WG maintained control, answering whenever the Cougars threatened to catch up and eventually building a 35-27 margin to take to the break.Every bit of it was needed, since Corcoran chipped away throughout the second half, led again by De’Jour Reaves, who topped all individuals with 27 points as Arthur Williams added 13 points. Part of the reason the Wildcats held on was that Amica did not have to take over, though he still paced his team with 22 points.Adam Dudzinski finished with 15 points, while John Benson had 10 points. Kam Jones, who didn’t play in that December meeting, got seven points as Sam Gallager had nine points.And this led to Friday’s visit from Baldwinsville, The Bees were 10-1 and atop the SCAC Metro division standings, in while the Wildcats were 8-2 in league play.More importantly, B’ville was the last team to defeat WG on Jan. 3, a memorable 57-52 game where sophomore J.J. Starling burned the Wildcats for 16 fourth-quarter points to rally his team to victory.An overflow crowd was on hand for Senior Night and WG sent most of them home happy, battling to a 49-45 victory that had plenty of momentum shifts and tension all the way to the final seconds.Somehow, the Wildcats endured going more than five minutes without a point in the first half to lead 19-18 at the break, saved by a defense that found a way to keep Starling quiet.Jones and Anthony Dattellas took turns face-guarding Starling, which prevented him from driving to the basket and forced him to settle for long-range shots, most of which fell off target in the early going.Amica, sidelined by two early fouls, broke out by scoring 10 straight points in the third quarter as WG built a 38-28 advantage. But then Starling ended his drought with four straight 3-pointers in a 12-0 run to put the Bees in front.WG absorbed all this and, over the game’s last four minutes, held the Bees without a field goal, getting back-to-back baskets from Gallager and Dudzinski to gain a 47-43 edge.Free throws by Chase Trombley cut the margin to two and, after Amica missed a free throw, the Bees had the ball in the final seconds with a chance to tie or win it.But Starling missed a driving lay-up, Dudzinski got the rebound and was fouled with 2.2 seconds left. Dudzinski hit both free throws to clinch it, giving him 15 points for the night.Each of WG’s three remaining regular-season games are on the road as the 14-3 Wildcats travel to Henninger and Fayetteville-Manlius this week and to Cicero-North Syracuse on Feb. 11.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story No single stretch of the regular season meant more to the West Genesee boys basketball team than the pair of games it would host in the last days of January.With Section III Class AA playoff seedings, and possibly a league title, on the line, the Wildcats would sweep one key challenger and gain some payback against the other.First was last Tuesday’s visit from Corcoran. The Wildcats and Cougars had gone through some classic battles the previous two years, and it took Will Amica scoring 36 points to have WG win 69-61 when they met in December.center_img Tags: boys basketballWest Geneseelast_img read more

Senior Hayley Crone still riding it out in her last year

first_imgAs the sun is at its highest point in the sky out in Temecula, California, a young woman on her family ranch mounts her horse and rides it around a dirt track. The wind wildly blows through her golden blonde hair as she makes many impressive sharp turns. This young woman happens to be senior setter Hayley Crone, and though she is known at USC for playing volleyball, her true passion lies with her horses.Farm family · Senior setter and team captain Hayley Crone hails from Temecula, California, where her family lives on a ranch with 13 horses. – Brian Ji | Daily TrojanEven before Crone was born, she was predisposed to liking horses.“My mom wanted to be a vet before she was a nurse,” said Crone. “She has always loved animals and we have always had a lot of them.”As a young girl, Crone participated in an equestrian sport called team penning, the object of which is to work as a group of three riders to get three cows into a pen within 90 seconds. What makes this sport difficult is that there are 30 cows in the arena and participants have to pen the cows that judges call out. The entire Crone family traveled throughout California to compete in this sport.Back at the Crone’s home in Temecula, several animals roam the property including dogs, barn cats, alpacas, pigs, chickens and horses. The family has 13 horses in all, but Hayley rides only her own horse, Dominic, religiously. Her best friend and teammate, senior middle blocker Hannah Schraer, attested to how important Crone’s animals are to her.“She takes teammates to her home and it is basically a ranch,” Schraer said. “We call it the Crazy Crone Family Farm and they always try to get me to ride a horse, but I just don’t like horses.”Crone has an older sister, Hillary, who competed with her in team penning, and has been Crone’s rock her entire life.“My sister is understanding, extremely patient, and we are so close,” Crone said, smiling. “She has always been my role model and I can’t even explain how much I look up to her. She has given me such unconditional support my entire life and she is such a wonderful person.”Crone and her sister were involved in not only team penning but also dance. They were the tallest girls in their dance company and the husband of the owner asked Hillary if she would play in a volleyball match. Crone watched her sister play and was instantly hooked.Starting in the sixth grade, Crone has played volleyball nonstop, going from grade school to club volleyball to USC. Committing at the beginning of her sophomore year to USC, Crone knew this was the place she belonged.“A lot of my family went to USC, it’s close to home and in my opinion it is the best university ever,” Crone said. “I can’t thank Mick [Haley] and Tim [Nollan] enough for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime.”During a recruiting trip to USC, Crone met 6-foot-3 Schraer for the first time — an encounter that marked the beginning of a lifelong friendship.“We were on a recruiting trip and we went to a football game. We didn’t even sit next to each other,” Schraer said. “When we met it was super awkward, but she is so kind, so funny and very loyal.”When Crone finally arrived on campus, she had no idea what a ride USC had in store for her. In her first three years on the volleyball team, she made one Final Four appearance and two regional final appearances. She also has accumulated 2,186 assists and 474 digs in those three seasons.Even head coach Mick Haley knew he had something special when he recruited her.“She was pretty fearless and was a dominant athlete in her age group,” Haley said. “She has always loved to play and she has a team first attitude, which you love having.”Though volleyball has always come easy to Crone, school has always been tough. With her strong will to achieve and her fearless attitude, however, Crone made major improvements in the classroom and in 2013 was awarded Most Improved GPA at Purdue’s Mortar Board Premier.“When I was a freshman I believed in ‘Cs get degrees’ and I didn’t care about my grades,” said Crone. “It meant a ton to me to win that award and it even impressed myself that I did that.”As both a senior and the captain of this incredibly young volleyball team, Crone has more responsibilities now than ever before. Crone leads by example, showing teammates how this program works as well as giving them positive encouragement every step of the way.Roughly halfway through this season, the Women of Troy are 10-6 overall. Though it wasn’t the start they wanted, they are improving in every match that they play. With Crone leading the charge, the Women of Troy hope to not only play in the NCAA Tournament but be serious contenders.At the end of this school year, Crone will be graduating with a communication degree from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. For her future, she is still deciding on whether she will join former teammates Natalie Hagglund, Sara Shaw and Alexis Olgard in playing professionally.Though her college volleyball career will be finished soon, she will always be a part of the Trojan family and always have her horse, Dominic, by her side.last_img read more
