    NEWCASTLE UNITED want to beat Jose Mourinho’s Roma to sign Austrian star Florian Grillitsch in the window. The Toon are hoping to persuade versatile Grillitsch to choose them in January and add his class to Eddie Howe’s survival fight. 1Newcastle and Roma target Florian Grillitsch can play in midfielder or at the backCredit: Getty Hoffenheim’s Grillitsch can play defensive midfielder or even sweeper and is available to sign a pre-contract as he is a free agent next summer. If Grillitsch fancies the challenge, Newcastle can then make an offer to buy him from the Germans for a bargain £3 or £4million. The Toon have been chasing Grillitsch for months and he is one of the easier players for them to land right now - as prices are high in the domestic market when they take an interest. Grillitsch also has Roma keen on him, but Newcastle have the money to tempt him their way - even if there are no guarantees that they stay up. The talented Austrian will face Wales and possibly Scotland on the way to World Cup...
    CRYSTAL PALACE are keeping tabs on Borja Mayoral’s lack of game time under Jose Mourinho at Roma. Palace thought they were doing a loan deal with Real Madrid for the Spanish striker last summer but he stayed in Italy. 1Roma loanee Borja Mayoral has been linked with a move to Crystal PalaceCredit: Getty Borja has amassed a mere eight appearances across all competitions ever since Mourinho took over from former manager Paulo Fonseca.

The Spaniard earned a senior call-up in 2015 and counts seven goals as well as four assists in 33 matches. However, Borja has struggled to stand out at the Santiago Bernabeu and that is why he has been sent out on various loan stints. The striker has been loaned to Wolfsburg, Levante and Roma, where he is currently playing. BETTING SPECIAL - GET MAN UTD AT 100/1...
    JOSE Mourinho gets a bad rep for not giving youth players a chance in the first team. But as last weekend showed, he's not afraid to give a teenager a shot at glory, if they are good enough. 13Felix Afena-Gyan starred for Roma on his debut scoring twiceCredit: Getty 13Jose Mourinho handed the wonderkid his debut and bought him some Balenciaga trainersCredit: Instagram @ohenegyanfelix9 The Special One introduced 18-year-old Felix Afena-Gyan into the fray as Roma took on Genoa.

    MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly eyeing a swoop for Kieran Trippier. And a transfer would also see Diogo Dalot reunited with Jose Mourinho at Roma. 2Man Utd are eyeing a fresh move for Atletico Madrid star Kieran TrippierCredit: Getty 2United could offload Diogo Dalot to Jose Mourinho's RomaCredit: Rex Gianluca Di Marzio claims Trippier remains a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after he was chased unsuccessfully by United over the summer. Atletico Madrid refused to sell the England right-back following his pivotal role in their LaLiga title win last term. But with Atleti now playing a new system and already falling five points off the summit, Trippier’s future in Spain is looking less secure. And that could finally pave the way for him to join United, who have also been less than convincing this term. It’s reckoned negotiations could start shortly ahead of a potential January switch. And should United get their hands on Trippier, it could see Portugal international Dalot leave Old Trafford.

Francis was starting the day by celebrating a Byzantine rite Mass in Presov, near Slovakia’s second city, Kosice,...

    08/16/2021 at 5:33 PM CEST The presence of Mourinho on the bench almost always brings surprises.

    SKOPJE, North Macedonia (AP) — North Macedonia’s government launched a 2.5 million euro ($3 million) development fund Friday to support Roma-owed businesses and job agencies to assist the poverty-stricken community. The project aims to provide easier access to business loans, coaching and business development services to try and draw Roma community members away from the country’s unofficial underground economy. Roma make up about 2.6% of North Macedonia’s 2 million people but their businesses are frequently denied loans due to a lack of collateral or credit history. International organizations say North Macedonia is being hard hit by the pandemic due to a loss of employment and drop in remittances, with the Roma community disproportionately affected.
