From France: Manchester United scouts sent to monitor 26yo midfield target

Sports
Scouts from Manchester United were present to monitor midfield target Jean-Michael Seri during Nice’s 2-3 defeat to Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday night, according to reports from France. Jose Mourinho publicly stated earlier this month that he would place emphasis on adding midfield reinforcements over the summer ahead of Michael Carrick‘s retirement and the probable departure of Marouane Fellaini, who has been strongly linked with Besiktas.  And Seri has emerged as a prime target given the Ivorian’s £35m release clause and clear desire to leave Ligue 1 having come close to joining Barcelona last summer. According to France Football, scouts from Man United, Barcelona, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus, Paris Saint Germain and Lyon were all present for the game. While t

Former House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), now a Fox News contributor, was asked about the indictments on Friday afternoon.  He immediately downplayed the notion that this interference may have had any impact on Donald Trump’s victory in the incredibly close 2016 election and suggested that it was the fault of the previous president. “I think a lot of people were very concerned, even at a small level, that this was happening. [Current House Oversight Chairman] Devin Nunes [(R-CA)] has been talking about this for a couple of years. President Obama k

West Brom reveal four players involved in supposed taxi incident

Sports
Spanish incident West Brom have released an incident on behalf of four of their senior players after suggestions of a taxi theft whole on a break in Spain. The Baggies flew out for a mid-season break as the side sit bottom of the Premier League. Though, what they didn’t expect was for several of their senior players to steal a taxi after a drunken night out abroad. The three players have now been revealed as Gareth Barry, Jonny Evans, Jake Livermore and Boaz Myhill. It is certainly unexpected that the most experienced of players would be out of line but they have apologised via the club. While the nature of the incident is yet to be confirmed, reports suggest that the players broke curfew and stole a taxi to get home. Whether that turns out to be true or not is yet to be seen. The st
