Sources: Man Utd doubt Juve can afford Pogba

10

United insist Pogba, who is under contract until at least 2021, is not for sale. And, privately, the club have also played down Juventus’ ability to pay a transfer fee which would be significantly higher than the £89.3 million United paid for Pogba in 2016 while also offering a salary that would tempt the 26-year-old to return.

Real Madrid are also interested in Pogba and sources have told ESPN FC he would prefer a move to the Bernabeu to link up with compatriot Zinedine Zidane. Solskjaer is keen to keep Pogba, who scored 16 goals in 47 games last season, and build a new-look team around the World Cup winner.nike nfl jerseys cheap paypal

The Norwegian is set to name Ashley Young as club captain following Antonio Valencia’s departure but is open to offering Pogba a leadership role within the dressing room that would see him wear the armband when Young is not in the team.10

Should Pogba force a move, sources have told ESPN FC United have identified Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Leicester’s James Maddison as possible replacements.cheap nfl nike jerseys china

Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are also interested in 22-year-old Maddison, who impressed in his first season in the Premier League following his move to the King Power Stadium from Norwich last summer.

Eriksen is open to a move away from Tottenham after helping Mauricio Pochettino’s side reach the Champions League final. The Denmark international, who been at the club for six years, is also on Real Madrid’s radar.

Solskjaer is already targeting at least one new midfielder this summer after Ander Herrera left on a free transfer. The Spaniard is expected to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Warriors want to fill the hole in Stephen Curry’s trophy case

9

The 35-year-old swingman, who has been dealing with the injury throughout most of the Golden State Warriors’ postseason run, spends the moments following Game 2 of the NBA Finals limping through the locker room inside Scotiabank Arena. Iguodala peels off his jersey and tells the assembled media what continues to motivate him to play through injuries at the tail end of a 15-year career.

“I like Steph,” Iguodala says. “He’s a good dude, good guy to be around. That’s really the only reason why I like playing basketball.”

In this moment, Iguodala’s motive is far deeper than the joy he gets from playing alongside Stephen Curry; he is also determined to bolster Curry’s individual résumé. Coincidentally, that means getting Curry something Iguodala already has: an NBA Finals MVP award.cheap nike nfl jerseys china

“I’ve never seen a person, such a good person, ever get some backlash, whatever, from his peers,” Iguodala said. “Because they’re so jealous of what he has. … So whatever it takes to protect his legacy, I’m all for it.”9

Since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, Curry is part of a small group of players who have won both a regular-season MVP award and a title but not claimed Finals MVP. Like Curry has the past two years, David Robinson and Julius Erving played alongside another MVP (Tim Duncan and Moses Malone, respectively) when they won their titles, while Kevin Garnett was four years removed from his MVP season — and on a different team — when he won his lone championship.
Iguodala echoed those sentiments, saying, “He’s not arrogant. He doesn’t go about life like a superstar. DeMarcus [Cousins] said it one day — he was like, ‘He’s the most normal superstar I’ve ever seen.’ He’s like, ‘This is unreal.’ But it’s just talk about culture. People don’t understand how important that is.“nike nfl jerseys cheap paypal

Curry has played well on the game’s biggest stage. He was the team’s leading scorer in the 2015 Finals, averaging nearly 10 points per game more than Iguodala, who won Finals MVP. He led the Warriors in scoring again in 2016, when they lost in seven games to the Cleveland Cavaliers — a setback Curry blames himself for.

Kevin Durant arrived that summer, and took the Finals scoring lead from Curry en route to winning each of the past two Finals MVPs. Still, Curry averaged 27.1 points per game over those two series, an increase over the 25.7 PPG he put up in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 regular seasons.

“I think if you ask him he’ll take that championship and everyone being healthy,” said Bogut, who was part of the Warriors’ title team in 2015 and, after stints with Cleveland, Dallas and the Lakers over the past two seasons, rejoined Golden State earlier this season. “In my opinion, I don’t think [winning Finals MVP] changes the direction of his career, but I guess for the media people that are out there criticizing him for not having that, it might silence them a little bit, for at least a year — until they find something else to criticize him for.”

Cards place Molina on IL due to thumb injury

10

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday because of a strained right thumb tendon.

The 36-year-old, a nine-time All-Star, got hurt during Saturday’s game against Atlanta and tried to play through the injury.

“It’s just a slight little tear between the thumb and the webbing, his right finger, rather,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said.

Shildt said the injury affected Molina’s batting.cheap nfl jerseys nike china

St. Louis said the roster move was retroactive to Wednesday.10

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said surgery had not been discussed.

“We did an MRI this morning and that indicated that there is some damage to the tendon in his thumb, throwing hand, and we’ll have him see a specialist this afternoon, as well,” Mozeliak said. “Probably have a better idea of maybe length and what to expect by sometime tomorrow morning.”cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

Matt Wieters will get most of the playing time while Molina is sidelined. St. Louis selected the contract of Andrew Knizner from Triple-A Memphis.

Molina is batting .265 with four home runs and 33 RBIs and started 49 of the Cardinals’ first 53 games.

Knizner, 24, was batting .286 with five home runs and 17 RBIs at Memphis.

Boring? That description fits the Cubs’ bats with men on base

9

While the Blues were playing the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final across town, Cubs star third baseman Kris Bryant was hearing plenty of boos after calling St. Louis “boring” over the winter. But that word applied to the Cubs at the plate as much as anything else.

The team’s offense has gotten decidedly boring lately.

“We have to give ourselves a better chance, more opportunities than we’re giving ourselves,” first baseman Anthony Rizzo said after Sunday’s 2-1 loss to the Cardinals completed a three-game sweep that knocked the Cubs out of first place in the NL Central. “That’s the ebb and flow of the season. We’re grinding right now as a unit. We have to get back on track.”

Rizzo got robbed by Kolten Wong late in Sunday’s contest to help preserve the win for the home team, but this can’t all be about a bad BABIP right now. The Cubs seem to be squeezing their bats about as hard as possible as soon as a runner reaches base. On Sunday, they nearly became just the second team this year to walk at least eight times without scoring — only a ninth-inning run prevented it.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

“We just have to do a better job, reorganize our strike zones and make pitchers throw the ball over the plate and stay in the middle of the field,” manager Joe Maddon said.9

Maddon has no other answers for an offense that has just one hit in its past 33 at-bats with a runner in scoring position — and even that lone hit didn’t plate a run. If the ball isn’t leaving the ballpark these days, the Cubs aren’t scoring.

“It’s not like we’re in here moping around and, ‘Poor us, we can’t get a hit right now with a runner in scoring position,'” Rizzo said. “We’re doing our best, we’re just falling short.”

Some of this rhetoric is eerily similar to the second half of last season, when the Cubs inexplicably went into offensive hibernation. That led to another “B” word no Cubs fan ever wants to hear again. If Theo Epstein declares the Cubs offense “broken” anytime soon, as he did last October, there might be a mutiny in Chicago.

“We have guys in here that have driven in a lot of runs before,” Rizzo said. “The more opportunities we have, the better off we’ll be.”cheap nfl jerseys nike china

Rizzo isn’t wrong. By year’s end, the top on-base teams are usually the top run-scoring teams. That’s a fact.

But the Cubs seem to do things that don’t go with the norm. For example, despite respectable National League rankings in batting average (fifth) and on-base percentage (second), the Cubs drop all the way down to 14th — just ahead of the lowly Marlins — when it comes to hitting with runners in scoring position. Let that sink in. They hit .255 overall but just .240 when runners are poised to score. Only one other NL team (Pittsburgh) has a drop of that significant. All others hit the same or better when the going gets tough for the pitcher.

That leads to a cruel joke forming for opposing teams: The best way to get out of an inning against the Cubs is to put a runner at second base.

“I don’t think we’re going up there just trying to hit homers,” Kyle Schwarber said. “Some of it isn’t falling right now. It’s the reality. We’re all up there trying to drive guys in.”

Jets interview Seahawks exec Fitterer for GM job

10

The Jets have interviewed Seattle Seahawks executive Scott Fitterer for their general manager job.

The team’s announcement Friday that it completed its meeting with Fitterer marked New York’s first interview in the process of filling its front-office vacancy.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Fitterer has been the Seahawks’ co-director of player personnel alongside Trent Kirchner since 2015. He has worked with Seattle since 2001 and served in various roles, including as the team’s director of college scouting.10

Mike Maccagnan was fired in a surprise move by Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson on May 15 after four seasons — just over two weeks after the GM oversaw the team’s draft. Johnson said he was looking to hire someone who was “a strategic thinker” and added that “it’s more than a talent evaluation guy.”cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Head coach Adam Gase is the acting general manager and has an active role in the Jets’ process of finding a new GM.

Joe Douglas, Philadelphia’s vice president of player personnel, is expected to interview with New York over the weekend. He is largely considered the favorite to land the gig. Terry Fontenot, New Orleans’ director of pro scouting, is also expected to be among the candidates to meet with the Jets.

Colts’ Kelly gets 2-game ban for October arrest

9

Colts quarterback Chad Kelly, assuming he makes the team, has been suspended without pay for the first two games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, the league announced Friday.

Kelly’s suspension stems from his October 2018 arrest for criminal trespassing after he entered a couple’s home while he played for the Denver Broncos, who released the quarterback the next day.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Kelly, a seventh-round pick by the Broncos in 2017, pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal trespassing — a misdemeanor — in March. He was sentenced to one year of supervised probation and 50 hours of community service.

The Colts signed Kelly on May 20 after he performed well during the team’s rookie minicamp earlier in the month. Coach Frank Reich was a teammate of Kelly’s uncle, Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, with the Buffalo Bills from 1986 to 1994.

“At the end of the day, you have to put in enough work for [the Colts] to trust you,” Chad Kelly said earlier this week. “It’s going to take some time, of course, because there’s been things that have happened in the past. But I’m up for the challenge to prove to these guys that I’m dedicated to this.”9

Kelly is allowed to participate in offseason activities, preseason practices and games. He is eligible to return to the Colts’ active roster Sept. 16, if he makes the roster.

Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett are the top two quarterbacks on the roster. Kelly will compete with Phillip Walker for the No. 3 spot.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

The Colts kept only two quarterbacks on the active roster last season, with Walker on the practice squad.

Kelly has a history of off-the-field troubles.

He was kicked off Clemson’s football team for arguing with coaches during the spring game in 2014. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct after he was arrested for a bar fight in 2014. Kelly was in another fight, at his brother’s high school football game in New York, in October 2016, with videos showing Kelly being held back by the coaches.

Kelly spent his rookie season in 2017 on injured reserve because of knee and wrist injuries suffered while at Ole Miss. He played one snap before his release from the Broncos last season.

Roma owner sorry for season, explains De Rossi exit

10

AS Roma president James Pallotta has admitted in a brutally honest open letter that the club’s season was a “complete disaster” but defied his critics by saying he would not standing down.

Roma fell far short of expectations as they finished sixth in Serie A and were beaten in the Champions League round of 16 by Porto. Coach Eusebio Di Francesco was sacked after that elimination in March and sporting director Monchi also left.

Roma, currently without a coach, have not won a major trophy since Pallotta, among the U.S. investors who took over the club in 2011, became president in 2012.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

He said the team’s lack of success was a “major regret,” adding that nobody “has been more disappointed, more depressed or more upset with how things have gone at Roma over the last 18 months than I have been… Last season for me was a complete disaster.”

The coach, he said, he been handed an unsuitable squad.10

“The team simply didn’t fit well together with the system that Di Francesco wanted to play,” said Pallotta. “He was clearly put in… a tough position this past year and was collateral damage. That’s something that we all regret.”

Roma fans were infuriated when the club decided not to offer stalwart midfielder Daniele De Rossi a new contract, forcing him out after 18 seasons, but Pallotta said he could not afford to risk the 35-year-old getting injured and leaving the side short of options in a key area.cheap nfl nike jerseys china

“While I would love to have Daniele on the team, you only have two [defensive midfielders] and if one gets hurt, Roma is screwed. It’s just as simple as that.”

Palotta added: “We may have had some differences of opinion on how his playing career at Roma has ended but I’m not going to get into that in the public domain; that’s between Daniele and myself.

“Daniele was emotional but he’s emotional because he cares and has cared about Roma forever. He plays with his heart – we’ve seen it for 18 years with Roma and on the world stage with Italy. He shows his emotion in the locker room, that’s what made him a great captain, and I firmly believe that whatever Daniele has ever done, it has been for the betterment of the club.”

Source: Arsenal want Leipzig’s Upamecano

Arsenal are targeting the signing of RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano, a source close to the Premier League club has told ESPN FC.

While there has been no official bid for the 20-year-old Frenchman — a member of the Bundesliga’s meanest defence last season — the German side have been made aware of the Gunners’ interest.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Leipzig are in the midst of attempting to renew the former Valenciennes player’s existing contract beyond 2021 but might consider a sale in case Upamecano pushes for a move.8

Arsenal’s failure to qualify for the Champions League after losing the Europa League final 4-1 to Chelsea on Wednesday night could hamper their pursuit of Upamecano.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

Without the funds from UEFA’s most lucrative competition, meeting Leipzig’s asking price will likely prove too difficult for Unai Emery’s side.

In addition, a source in Germany has indicated Upamecano, whose Leipzig team have qualified for the Champions League as the third-placed team behind champions Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, would be less inclined to push through a move if Arsenal were in the Europa League next season.

Sources: Rockets making CP3, others available

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has made his entire roster and future draft picks available in trade talks, a dramatic initiative with hopes of reshaping the team into a championship contender, league sources told ESPN.

The possibility of trading All-NBA guard James Harden is believed to be extremely limited, but the rest of the roster — including even Chris Paul and Clint Capela — could be more realistic trade targets, sources said.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china10

Paul’s remaining contract (three years, $124 million) and advancing age (34) make deal possibilities somewhat prohibitive.

The Harden-Paul dynamic wasn’t without its challenges this season for the Rockets, league sources said.

Houston has lost in the Western Conference finals and conference semifinals to the Golden State Warriors in consecutive years.

Houston has made changes on its coaching staff, and extension talks with coach Mike D’Antoni appear to be stalled. He has one year left on his contract.

Kerr says Cousins could be active for Game 1

8

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins is questionable for Game 1 of the NBA Finals as he continues to rehab from a torn left quad, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr left open the possibility that Cousins could be active in time for tipoff of Thursday’s game against the Toronto Raptors.

“DeMarcus has done an amazing job,” Kerr said Wednesday. “Coming back from the injury which we felt at the time was season ending. He’s done an incredible job of rebounding, rehabbing. Now, here he is. He’s scrimmaged a couple times this week. He’s pain free. It is more a matter of rhythm, timing and condition. All those things. I think I mentioned if this was this the regular season, I’d throw him out there, whatever minutes he could tolerate. We’d build him up from there. It’s not the regular season. It’s the Finals. We have to figure out what is the best way to utilize him. How many minutes he can play. What the game feels like. Some of that will be determined by what is happening in the game. Some of the other stuff is just internal with our staff.”

Kerr said “It hasn’t been decided yet,” if Cousins will be active, but Cousins participated in practice and was in a good mood as the Warriors got their first official workout going inside ScotiaBank Arena.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

“I feel good,” Cousins said. “My quad is coming along. It’s healed for the most part. Still whipping things into the shape. Building the muscle endurance needed to play at a high level. Everything is coming along well.”8

Cousins, who tore the quad on April 15 in Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals against the Los Angeles Clippers, was asked if he would play if the decision were up to him.

“That’s the thing,” Cousins said. “It never really is up to me. We’ll put our heads together and figure out our best plan moving forward.”nike nfl jerseys cheap china

Cousins has repeatedly praised the Warriors medical staff for the time and effort they have put in to try and get him back on the floor. He returned from a torn Achilles on Jan. 15 after missing close to a year rehabbing that injury. If he is cleared to play, his teammates know it will be ‘a huge challenge’ for him to produce at this level after missing so much time.

“When you talk about DeMarcus, he’s someone who has been great in this league for years now,” Draymond Green said. “He probably [hasn’t] played basketball 16 of the 19 months. that right there alone is a challenge in itself. Then you talk playoff experience, where you and I both know the intensity level is completely different than a regular season game. He doesn’t have much playoff experience. then you get dropped in the NBA finals. Kinda some like guy who grew up in the suburbs going to private school, then one day got dropped in the ‘hood and was told to survive. Gotta figure that out.”

Whether Cousins is cleared for Game 1 or not, he is confident that he will contribute at some point in The Finals.

“I believe this is the stage every basketball player as a kid dreams of,” Cousins said. “To be here is a huge honor. Incredible feeling, I’m extremely excited about it. Makes me that much more antsy to get on the floor and help my teammates. If that opportunity is presented to me, I plan on taking advantage.”
