Silva praises amazing De Bruyne

The Belgium international has enjoyed a tremendous start of the season under Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City’s summer signing Bernardo Silva has lauded his team-mate Kevin De Bruyne as ‘one of the best in the world’. The Citizens’ playmaker is in outstanding form since the start of the season, constantly lifting the assist bar with his performances. De Bruyne has been the most assisting footballer in the Premier League since arriving at the Etihad Stadium in 2015. The 26-year-old’s showing on the pitch has been vital for Guardiola’s men, who keep smashing every team they face in England.

Their latest feature was a 7-2 hammering over Stoke City, with De Bruyne once again under the spotlight as he was involved in the majority of City’s goals. His incredible form has not gone unnoticed as Bernardo Silva could not hide his satisfaction with the Belgium international’s form and contribution to the club: “Kevin, is just an amazing player. It’s a pleasure to play alongside these kind of players and he showed us again that he’s one of the best in the world.” the Portuguese striker stated, according to beIN Sports.Neville: Pep Guardiola knows Ma上海夜生活n City aren’t good enough Andrew Smyth – Gary Neville has quashed Pep Guardiola’s claims that Manchester City won’t buy in January as they can’t challenge for trophies without defensive cover.

“To be here and to be able to learn from all these fantastic players, it’s an amazing opportunity, I’m very happy to be here, and I hope I can help the team to achieve the goals.”

Updates about Carvajal’s condition

Excellent news are coming from Spain, where it was announced that Dani Carvajal is out of any danger.

The Spanish full-back of Real Madrid was diagnosed with a viral infection of the pericardium and was ruled out of action indefinitely. So far, no news emerged about Carvajal’s situation and there were worries about his general health condition, after the medical staff of Real Madrid said that they don’t know when will the player be ready to play again. He was offered treatment and was kept under supervision by the team’s doctors.

However, AS now announced that the right-back is out of any danger and will return to the first team training sessions very soon.

Wenger says that Alexis and Ozil could leave in January

The Gunners manager admitted that two of his best player could leave during the winter transfer window.

Both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are in their last year of contract at Emirates. The Chilean already made it clear that he is not interested in signing a new deal with the club, while negotiations with Ozil have been rather slow.

With a number of big clubs chasing them, it was inevitable that Arsenal will have to make a decision whether to cash in on them in January or to use them for the whole season and lose them for free next summer.Strachan: Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney similar to Virgil van Dijk Andrew Smyth – Gordon Strachan believes Arsenal new signing Kieran Tierney is a similar kin上海夜生活论坛d of defender to Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk.

Manchester City and PSG are thought to be fighting over the signature of Alexis Sanchez, while Mesut Ozil is disputed by Manchester United and Barcelona. However, the German’s agent revealed that negotiations over a new deal with the Gunners ‘are heading in a positive direction’.

Speaking ahead of the upcoming Premier League match against Watford, Arsenal’s manager said about the possibility of the two players to leave the club: “In our situation, we have envisaged every solution. It is possible.”

Further asked about the Ozil’s willingness to remain at the Emirates, the French manager said: “It is my understanding [that he wants to stay]. I hope the situation can be turned around. At the moment, we are not close enough to announce anything.”

Ederson’s goal-kick is simply in a league of its own

The Citizens’ goalkeeper made his Brazil national team debut on Thursday.

Ever since arriving in Manchester City from Benfica during the summer, Ederson has been outstanding. The 24-year-old has kept seven clean sheets, conceding only two goals since the start of the season. His great performances have not gone unnoticed as he was called up for the national squad of Brazil, making his first ever debut for Selecao.

Not only did Ederson record yet another clean sheet, but he also did something that very few can do. During the 23rd minute of th上海夜生活论坛e game, City’s shot-stopper produced an outstanding goal-kick that reached the opposition’s box, dropping right at Jesus’ feet.

Speaking to Manchester City’s website, Ederson revealed it was all planned even though it did not work out.

“At the start of the game, I spoke with Gabriel and said that we could score from our first goal kick as Chile were making a lot of pressure.

“I was able to kick the ball to his back. Unfortunately, Gabriel wasn’t able to control the ball, but I am happy for him and for me, as he scored twice and we managed to help with the win.”

Transfer embargo stopped stopped Griezmann from leaving

The ex-agent of Antoine Griezmann has revealed that the Frenchman was really close to United this summer.

The France international would have certainly joined Manchester United if it had not been for Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban, according to the player’s former agent.

Griezmann was a target for a number of European clubs, with the Red Devils being in the leading position for his signature as they submitted a bid close to €100 million in the very start of the summer.

Yet, the 26-year-old confirmed that he would remain at Atletico Madrid since his club needs him now most than ever due to their FIFA-imposed ban on adding new players to their ranks.Report: Mourinho rejects several offers amid Real Madrid talk Andrew Smyth – Jose Mourinho has reportedly turned down several job offers in Europe as he eyes up a potential shock return to Real Madrid.

“Griezmann hasn’t felt able to leave Atletico,” Olhats, who was Griezmann’s manager until September 2016, told France Football . “It showed the integrity of his links with the club, [who were] unable to sign players. Without that上海夜生活网 ban, he would have gone, without a doubt.”

“His omnipresence in the media has not helped him to relaunch himself on a sporting level,” he said. “The balance between the search for performance and the desire to sell your image is very fragile. Unconsciously, you can choose the wrong side.

“There are a lot of aspects of show business in football these days. Antoine is immersed in that inescapable logic at the moment. Now, he’s a footballer, not a singer.

“The press and marketing side of Antoine’s career are handled by his sister Maud, who know all about that. It was decided that Griezmann’s image would take a different path with new methods.”

Arsenal outcast finally out of the Emirates

Lucas Pérez has finally ended his nightmare spell with the Gunners.

The 28-year-old will join Deportivo La Coruna as he stated he was where he wanted to be after completing a loan move from Arsenal.

The 28-year-old has been looking for a way out throughout the whole summer. While it appeared that Wenger’s side is not willing to accept bids below 15 million pounds for his services, the club from north London finally agreed on a €4m loan deal with no option to buy included.

“I’m where I want to be,” Pérez is quoted as saying by Riazor.org.

“I have a right to decide what is going to happen with my future and what I want to do.

They understood my situation and the fact that I wanted to return home.Top 5 players to watch in Manchester United vs Arsenal Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Ahead of the most important Premier League match of the weekend, we got the Top 5 players to watch in Man United vs Arsenal.The…

“They have reached agreements with many clubs but I clearly told them that my intention was to join Depor and no other alternative.

“I don’t want to give a number but 上海夜网in the last three or four days I spoke to many sporting directors and coaches. But I reiterated that my wish was to return to Deportivo.”

Thomas Lemar happy despite failed move to England

The France international was wanted by both Liverpool and Arsenal, but Monaco re上海夜生活网jected both sides’ bids.

Thomas Lemar will remain at the French champions AS Monaco after a supposed move to Emirates Stadium failed. The Gunners submitted a £90 million bid for Lemar, but the transfer was called off hours before the end of the close season. Before that Liverpool submitted a number of offers, but they did not really come close to the estimated price of the winger.

Amid the whole saga around him, Lemar gave an interview to Canal+ where the 21-year-old stated he was looking forward to return to Stade Louis II after the international break.

“I am a player of Monaco, I am very happy there.Liverpool could be kicked out of the Carabao Cup Andrew Smyth – Liverpool face a nervous wait to discover their Carabao Cup fate after falling into hot water with the Football League over selecting ineligible players.

“Now I’m going to make a good season with my club, to try to progress and move forward in my career with Monaco.

“I prepared for this game as usual. I do not lose my head, even if there are rumours. I was focused on my game, that’s all that mattered to me.”

AS Monaco have made a flawless start of the season in Ligue 1 despite losing four of their key players – Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Kylian Mbappe, who joined French rivals Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe chose PSG for first-team opportunities

Kylian Mbappe said that he felt he would have more first-team opportunities at PSG than at Real Madrid.

The young forward was disputed this summer by Real Madrid and PSG, but eventually he chose to remain in France and sign with the Parisians. Now he revealed that the main reason behind his choice was the prospect of playing regularly in the first team: “I felt that at PSG, I would have more opportunities to play than at Real Madrid.”

Speaking to L’Equipe, the 18-year-old also revealed that he held discussions with Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, but eventually turned down a move to England: “Guardiola is a coach who breathes football, he won everywhere and he transmits passion and makes you want to play. Drogba tips for Neymar and Mbappe to win Ballon d’Or one day Nedim Maric – One of the best strikers in the Premier League era talked about PSG’s sensational duo and their chances of winning individual awards in the…

Although he eventually switched to Ligue 1 rivals PSG, Mbappe said that he had no intention of leaving Monaco at the end of last season, when they won the title: “I had no intention of leaving Monaco at the end of the season, but things happened and I decided to change my mind and I’ll take the time to explain it later.”

Th上海夜生活论坛e 18-year-old is now looking forward to win trophies with his new team and has set his sights on Champions League: “I dream of winning the Champions League this year, it’s easy to say in September, but what counts is to be able to say it in February. We have a great team on paper, now we’ll have to prove it on the pitch.”

Salah and Coutinho synergy impressed Klopp

The German tactician is pleased to see the early understanding between the two players.

Jürgen Klopp is fascinated by the early showings of synergy between Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho, after watching the two players during the pre-season friendlies.

Coutinho’s future has been a subject of strong speculations as Barcelona are reportedly interested in the Brazilian amid Neymar rumours linking the Catalan to Paris Saint-Germain.

However, Coutinho captained his team against Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion and once again impressed with his ability to distribute the ball. The ‘Magician’ freed himself from opponent players and provided a stunning assist for Salah, who wrapped up the final 3-0 for the Reds.

Speaking to Liverpool’s website, Klopp was more than delighted by the understanding of his players.

The German manager also said that Liverpool’s new signings are proba上海夜生活网bly underestimated by the masses, but he was happy with their impact on the games.

“The new players are maybe better than people thought they will be,” he added.

“I think we said early that we want to build on the squad from last year, and that’s what we’ve tried to do. For the moment, we’re really happy.

“We don’t have many injuries now, which is the best news and if we can stay fit, we can be very strong.

“Unfortunately, the other teams are also really pretty strong in England, so we have no choice but to be at our highest.”

People have already seen the best of Walker thinks Spurs manager

Mauricio Pochettino believes the the full-back’s prime days were at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Kyle Walker will prove he is a quality player at the Etihad stadium, but also claims his best days are in the past.

The England defender completed a record-breaking £50 million switch from Spurs to Manchester City, making him the most expensive defender in English football history.

Kyle Walker spent eight years with Tottenham and became one of the fans’ favourites. Despite the fact Pochettino is sure Walker will succeed under Guardiola, he also thinks that he struck a good bargain for Tottenham.

“It’s a big pressure because when you pay for some players, the pressure to perform as well in every game becomes greater.”

Meanwhile the Citizens parted ways with a number of defenders – Clichy, Sagna and Zabaleta all left the club while Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy arrived at Etihad.

Arsenal interested in Jankto

The Udinese midfielder grew up as an Arsenal fan.

Jakub Jankto‘s agent has confirmed that the club from North London is interested in the services of his client. The Czech midfielder joined Udinese from Slavia Prague for €700 000 in 2014.

The hosts Russia are going to try to defend their leading position in Group A at the FIFA Confederations Cup tomorrow when they will face the European champions Portugal. Spartak Stadium in Moscow is already sold out and the expectations for the game are high in terms of entertainment.

Russia shouldn’t take anything for granted after beating New Zealand in their opening game and should also be aware that this time they are facing a more challenging opponent in Portugal. Russians are likely to let the Portuguese take the initiative and rely more on counter attacks. The side will go into the game with none of their players threatened by yellow-card suspensions.

Portugal’s head coach Fernando Santos has announced th上海夜网at he wants to rotate his team as the tournament goes on, but if he wants to give his main players a rest in the last group game against New Zealand, they need to beat Russia.

It was reported earlier that Manchester United and Chelsea want to sign the Polish striker and had both held initial talks with his agentWritten by – Nikolay Nikolov, June 21, 2017.

Bayern Munich is claiming that their striker Robert Lewandowski doesn’t want to leave the club, adding that clubs who start negotiations with the player “risk a FIFA penalty”.

It was reported earlier this morning that Manchester United and Chelsea are after the striker and even had held initial talks about a deal.

“Lewandowski does not want to leave Bayern. There are no talks with other clubs and there won’t be any. His contract expires in 2021. He signed it not long ago. If other clubs negotiate with long-term contracted players, they risk a FIFA penalty,” said the German club to Sky Germany.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

Recently, his agent Maik Barthel told German football magazine Kicker, that Lewandowski was very disappointed because Carlo Ancelotti gave no call to help him in his top-scorer title pursuit.

Portugal and Chile will face-off in the semifinals of Confederations Cup in Russia. And Arturo Vidal attacked Cristiano 上海夜生活网Ronaldo before their direct duel.

Vidal is most probably still upset about the last direct meeting between the two, when Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals for Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals to knock Bayern out of the competition.

“Ronaldo is a smart-ass. For me, he doesn’t exist. I already told Joshua Kimmich that we will meet again in the final”, Vidal said.

After being sent off at the end of the 90 minutes in the return leg of the quarter finals of Champions League between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, Arturo Vidal unleashed at the address of Victor Kassai, who was the referee of the game. During the same match, Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals from off-side positions.

“When Real Madrid started to be scared, the referee started his show. Such a theft cannot happen in the Champions League! I felt this very much and started to wonder a bit”, Vidal said at the time, after the match.

Manchester City are looking for solutions to fill in their vacancies in the squad. The most sensible role right now is the that of full-backs, after the departures of Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta.

City has long been linked with moves for Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, but neither of those has turned into anything concrete yet. For this reason, Guardiola is exploring other options.

Juven上海夜生活网tus were looking to get around €5m for their player, but reports suggest that they will not make it hard for Alves to leave Italy and will eventually agree to end his contract. The former Sevilla and Barcelona man played 32 matches for Juventus last season in all competitions, scoring six goals and providing six assists along the way. He has helped Max Allegri’s side to win the Scudetto for the sixth year in a row and also to reach their second Champions League final in three years.

IMF stands by yuan view; says China could need stimulus if trade war worsens

WASHINGTON ( ) – The International Monetary Fund on Friday stood by its assessment that the value of China’s yuan was largely in line with economic fundamentals, but an IMF official said the fund was encouraging China to pursue a more flexible exchange rate with less intervention.

James Daniel, director of the IMF’s China department, said that an assessment of China’s economic policies found the yuan exchange rate in 2018 to be “not significantly over-valued or under-valued.”

The IMF’s views on the yuan are at odds with those of its largest shareholder, the United States, which this week declared China a “currency manipulator” after it allowed the yuan to slip below 7 to the dollar to 11-year lows.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is seeking to engage the IMF to help “correct” an unfair trade advantage from Beijing’s currency actions, but Daniel declined to say how the IMF was responding to the request.

“Our discussions with the U.S. Treasury are ongoing on a range of issues,” Daniel told reporters on a conference call, echoing an earlier statement from an IMF spokesperson.

The IMF said in the report that a worsening of trade tensions with the United States could put China’s economic and financial stability at risk, making new fiscal stimulus measures from the government warranted.

The IMF said if the United States were to impose 25% tariffs on a remaining $300 billion list of Chinese imports, this would reduce China’s growth by around 0.8 percentage points over the following 12 months, driven by a sharp fall in demand and a tightening of financial conditions. Negative global spillovers could be significant, it added.

Daniel said that a 10% tariff on this category of goods — as U.S. President Donald Trump intends to impose on Sept. 1 — could result in a 0.3 percentage point cut to growth.

Weighed down by weak demand at home and abroad, China’s growth slowed to 6.2% in the second quarter, a near 30-year low.

More exchange rate flexibility could help China deal with these external pressures, freeing up monetary policy to deal with domestic demand conditions, Daniel said.

He also said the IMF was pressing Chi上海夜生活na for structural reforms to its economy, including opening more sectors to foreign competition and reducing the role of the state in certain industry — goals also broadly sought by the Trump administration.

“We see continued rebalancing and opening up by China and increased exchange rate flexibility as being in China’s own interests and also benefiting the global economy.”

IMF directors in a statement agreed with staff assessments that China’s external position in 2018 was broadly in line with fundamentals.

But they also called for more transparency in China’s exchange rate policies, the IMF said, with some seeking disclosures of China’s foreign exchange market interventions.
