    New York : Laporta confirmed his desire to keep Messi. Photo: Andreu Dalmau / EFE The chances that Barcelona will sign Haaland are very remote due to the very high value that Borussia Dortmund has placed on him, however, the summer market could give him very good opportunities to sign two figures who end their contract this summer, thus shuffling the possibility of replacing, in some way, the forward of the moment. The Barsa formula would be an operation that includes the transfer of Agüero and Depay who would arrive as free agents and add much more offensive power to a forward that is already made up of dangerous players such as Messi, Ansu Fati, Dembélé and Trincao. The ‘Kun’ has already publicly stated his farewell to the English club. In this sense, Barcelona has mobilized to take over the services of the Argentine, with...
    New York : With the arrival of Joan Laporta to the presidency of Barcelona, ​​it is expected a new sports project for the team to put him back to compete in all the competitions that the club plays, especially after the consecutive failures of Barcelona in the last Champions League campaigns.

Despite the fact that the economic situation of the culé team is not very good at the moment, Laporta would make a great effort to bring in poster players to restore the competitive spirit that the team seems to have lost. Eric Garcia Perhaps the clearest and safest signing that Barcelona will make. The Catalan central Manchester City has already confirmed that...

    Democratic House impeachment managers warned that convicting former President Donald Trump and disqualifying him from running again was not just a necessary consequence for the role they say he played in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, but as a means of preventing such an event from occurring again. At the close of his remarks early Thursday afternoon, lead manager Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., claimed it is all but certain that Trump would do nothing differently if given another shot at the White House.

    Al Michaels. Will Newton/Getty Images Veteran sportscaster Al Michaels said in an April interview that during the 2019 season, he made 43,000-1 wager that Tom Brady wouldn't leave the New England Patriots. A researcher for NBC put down $2 on the bet, so Michaels owes him $86,000. It's unclear if Michaels had paid the bet yet, but he said that it would be paid off in installments. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Despite evidence pointing to Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots throughout the 2019 season, veteran sportscaster Al Michaels did not believe it.

    Tyson Foods suspended officials Thursday at its largest meatpacking plant after a lawsuit alleged they took bets on how many workers would get COVID-19 early in the pandemic. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed earlier this year after Isidro Fernandez was exposed to the virus at the Waterloo plant, according to the Iowa Capital Dispatch. Fernandez’s family’s lawsuit alleges Tyson Foods is guilty of a “willful and wanton disregard for workplace safety.” The suit alleges that plant manager Tom Hart organized a betting pool for the management team to put money on how many workers would test positive, the Capital Dispatch reported. Another manager, John Casey allegedly told supervisors to disregard symptoms and reportedly called it the “glorified flu.” Then, in March and April, supervisors reportedly denied confirmed cases and allegedly they had a responsibility to keep working to feed Americans. Company CEO Dean Banks said in a statement he...
    As the coronavirus swept through a pork processing plant in Iowa, managers were callously indifferent—not only keeping the facility open despite state demands for its closure, but organizing a cash buy-in betting pool on how many employees would fall ill, according to a lawsuit. The lawsuit, filed in Iowa federal court, argues that more than 1,000 employees at the Tyson Foods facility in Waterloo eventually contracted the virus, five of whom died before the plant was eventually shut down on April 22. During that time, managers kept denying the virus had run rampant at the plant and forced COVID-positive employees to come into work, according to the suit. They likened the virus to a “glorified flu,” offered bonuses if workers didn’t call in sick, and even forced one employee to keep working after he vomited on the production line. Four days after the pork plant’s closure, one of it’s...
    David Ryder/Getty Images Company managers for Tyson Foods are facing a wrongful death lawsuit that claims they took bets on how many of their employees would end up catching the coronavirus. The lawsuit was filed by Oscar Fernandez, son of Isidro Fernandez who worked at Tyson’s meat processing plant in Waterloo, Iowa before dying in April of Covid-related complications. Washington Post reports that over 1,000 other plant workers ended up contracting the virus before it was eventually closed down. Local officials blasted Tyson earlier in the year for failing to protect their employees as Fernandez and 5 others died from Covid. Fernandez’s son moved to sue the company for downplaying the virus, forcing employees to work in unsafe conditions, and other actions amounting to “fraudulent misrepresentations, gross negligence and incorrigible, willful and wanton disregard for worker safety.” According to CBS Des Moines affiliate KCCI-TV, Fernandez amended his lawsuit against Tyson...
    Aviation experts have claimed they have finally located the crash site of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 which vanished in March 2014 with 239 passengers on board.  Despite a four year, $200million international search effort covering more than 120,000sqm, the plane's wreckage has never been found, sparking the world's biggest aviation mystery.  The experts believe MH370 plunged into the South Indian Ocean, near the co-ordinates of S34.2342 and E93.7875, which is about 1,285 miles (2,070km) off the coast of Perth in Western Australia.

    PHOTO VIA NSFRon DeSantis has a new name for the Tampa Bay area: Title Town USA. Appearing at a news conference Tuesday in Jacksonville, DeSantis, a former college baseball player, wished the Tampa Bay Rays well as they play the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. “You know, if they are able to win that, then I think Tampa Bay is Title Town USA,” the governor said, noting that the Tampa Bay Lightning just won the Stanley Cup as National Hockey League champions. While wins in baseball and hockey would be enough to secure the bragging rights, DeSantis said the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers could also win the 2021 Super Bowl, which will be played in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. “Because you got to bet on Tom Brady making it to the Super Bowl.

    Four years ago, veteran center DeMarcus Cousins was still viewed as a player who’s worth giving up a max salary. Unfortunately, plenty of things have changed since he parted ways with the Sacramento Kings. From being a max guy, he’s no longer considered a starting-caliber big man and so far, he’s having a hard time securing a decent contract in the free agency market. After spending the 2019-20 NBA season recovering from an injury, Cousins is once again expected to accept another cheap deal when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this fall. As of now, his No. 1 priority is finding a team that will give him the opportunity to rebuild his value and prove to everyone in the league that he still has plenty of gas left in his tank. According to Preston Ellis of Bleacher Report, the “best bet” for “Boogie” in the 2020 free agency is...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said Wednesday that he would bet on a coronavirus vaccine to be proven safe and effective before the end of 2020. ‘‘I would still put my money on November/December,” he said, during a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute panel on global pandemics. Fauci, 79, one of the most trusted faces of the coronavirus task force, said his informed projection was calculated based on where the clinical trial sites are in their studies, according to CNN.

    Elisa Slotkin (D-MI), a swing district congresswoman, said during a Politico profile of her on Friday that the “smart person’s money” would bet that she would lose to a Republican candidate in 2020. As the 2020 congressional elections approach, Politico asked Slotkin in a profile, “If the election were today, would she win?” “If the election was held today, before I’ve really gotten to work for it?” she said. “I don’t know.” She continued: I think probably I would win. But for me, it’s really important to have neighbors talking to neighbors and we haven’t been able to do as much of that. I think, without doing the work, a smart person’s money should be on a Republican candidate. … I can’t take anything for granted given how this district was built. Slotkin, a former CIA intelligence officer, represents Michigan’s eighth congressional district, which serves as one of the pivotal swing districts...
    Ron Rivera has a lot of good things to say about Cam Newton after working with the quarterback for nine seasons with the Panthers. Rivera, now coaching in Washington, said Monday that Newton, now working in New England, looks poised to rebound from a foot injury that limited him to two games in 2019. “He’s probably about as healthy as it gets from what I’ve seen on video, so I think he’s ready to bust out, I really do,” Rivera told Chicago radio station WSCR-AM. “I would never bet against the young man, that’s for sure.” IYER: Breaking down Pats’ QB situation after Newton addition Rivera went into Newton’s career development to explain why Newton will be motivated to show he can still play at a high level. “Don’t bet against him,” is what Rivera would say to doubters. “You’ve got to know who he is and understand what he’s gone through,”...
    When he demanded a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans last summer, All-Star center Anthony Davis had informed everyone in the league about his plan to test the free agency market in the 2020 NBA offseason. Though he considered the Los Angeles Lakers as one of his preferred landing spots, Davis is yet to give them an assurance that he would re-sign once he becomes an unrestricted free agent this fall. As Shams Charania of The Athletic revealed in his recent Twitter post, Davis has until October 14 to decide whether he will opt into his $28.7 million player option for the 2020-21 NBA season or not. Once he opts out and officially becomes an unrestricted free agent, several NBA teams would likely try to steal Davis from the Lakers. However, according to Nate Loop of Bleacher Report, sticking with the Lakers is still the “safest bet” for Davis in...
