Tottenham presses to sign Bale today; Madrid discards it

first_imgThe long-lasting injury of Harry kane would have contributed to accelerate the purchase intention, although in principle Daniel Levy, who would have moved to the Spanish capital to meet with Florentino Pérez, would have set an expenditure limit for the lead of twelve million euros after the acquisition of Steven Bergwijn, which implies that they do not have liquidity except for a large sale that does not seem likely. Nevertheless, sources consulted by ACE They see it practically impossible for the operation to be completed due to lack of time and difficulties in raising the necessary money. In this way, the only possibility that would remain in the air would be the transfer, although player and club would not see it with good eyes. Premier League* Data updated as of January 31, 2020 eleven LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 31, 2020 The Real Madrid player has been on the exit ramp in each market for several seasons, but finally the interest of all clubs has remained nothing. Your exequipo, now run by Jose Mourinho, wants to bring it back to go up in the Premier League and keep trying to conquer the Champions League. Further, Zinedine Zidane, in the press conference prior to the derby against the Atlético de MadridHe has stated that he does not see that it is possible for the Welsh footballer to leave the white discipline during the last day of the transfer market: “Gareth is with us and I’m going to count on him. I don’t contemplate this possibility.”Jonathan Barnett, a Welsh agent, has also jumped on stage. Asked by the Daily Mail about the possibility of Bale leaving today for the Premier, he returned to pull his usual vocabulary: “It’s bullshit”.Gareth Bale has three goals and two assists in the fifteen games he has played so far, but his departure would leave a huge gap in the salary field to bring players ahead of time. We will have to wait a few hours to know how serious the Tottenham is going for Bale in this market, but what is certain is that its price would not approach at all the limit that Daniel Levy marked a few days ago. There are few hours left for the winter transfer window to close and a bombing that affects Real Madrid can still take place. And according to The times, Tottenham wants to sign Gareth Bale on the last market day.last_img read more

The Arizona Cardinals have flopped in signing agin

first_imgThe Arizona Cardinals have flopped in signing aging veteran free agents in the past. See Alan Faneca, Joey Porter, Emmitt Smith, Edgerrin James. Sometimes you catch lightning in a bottle (Kurt Warner) but most times you don’t. You get an aging star trying to cash in with one last paycheck. I don’t see that being the case with John Abraham. Since he was drafted by the New York Jets in the first round in 2000, he has been one of my favorite players in the league. A hard-working, team-leading, quarterback-sacking badass. And even at the ripe old age of 35, I don’t see this as a guy coming to Arizona to cash in on one more paycheck and pick up some golf clubs. Abraham is the consummate professional; he gives it his all game in and game out and doesn’t take plays off. Comments   Share   He is the active career sacks leader for a reason, but sacks aren’t all he does. Abraham, as you will soon see, is someone who makes game-changing plays. He has 44 forced fumbles in his career, and if its not a sack it’s a hurry, a pressure or a knockdown. He’s just a guy that everyone will enjoy playing with and a guy you want in the trenches with you — a guy quarterbacks fear.How much he has left at his age is yet to be determined, but based on his play last season, that tank isn’t even half-empty. With the Cardinals, he will be part of a linebacking corps that consists of a lot of new players — Karlos Dansby, Jasper Brinkley and Lorenzo Alexander — and they drafted Kevin Minter and Alex Okafor. So that’s a crowded position, but Abraham is too good to not be a contributor and earn his playing time. He had always been a down lineman as a defensive end until last season with Mike Nolan as defensive coordinator in Atlanta where he played in the 3-4. He will likely be out there on passing downs, but not dropping into coverage covering tight ends. But he is also a depth provider on the defensive front. So you may see him play both defensive end and linebacker.

That the Cardinals got him on a two-year deal for around $6 million is a solid signing. I can’t wait to watch him play.
