He seems the agent determined to get the player out of there after United even put a price on him last summer: £ 180 million (€ 200) “Paul is our player and not Mino’s,” Solskjaer complained. to the media after an attackthat of Raiola in the media. And the agent replied on his Twitter. It was last February 17: “Pogba is neither mine nor Solsjkaer’s. You cannot have anyone in property for a long period in the UK or anywhere else. I hope Solskjaer I would not want suggest that Pogba is a prisoner. “Value change.Pogba cost United 120 million euros in the summer of 2016, when the Madrid of Zidane. “He is a great player, I like him, he is very good”, the French coach went on to say publicly to make Florentino’s preferences clear. But Madrid was in the process of containing costs. However, this season has been full of injuries (to the ankle) for the player, who has only been able to play six games as a starter and two as a substitute, and the estimate is that it could come out for 100 million, amount that could decrease depending on how the coronavirus crisis affects football finances. If there is a time to sign a player like Pogba, Zidane’s great longing, is this. As it happened in 2016, looks like this summer is going to come back to open the door which ends in the hiring of the world champion midfielder, who now He is 27 years old. The footballer has a contract with United until 2021 and, As AS has learned, his club has initiated contacts to renew him, aware that, if you don’t it would be better to sell him and make box with it.The differences of Mino Raiola, your agent, with the English entity and especially with his coach, Solskjaer, they are already more than evident. To the point that they have led to a major misunderstanding about the length of Pogba’s contract with United. “He is committed to the club until after Euro 2020 (it had to be played this summer) and then, if necessary, we’ll talk to United, “said the agent in mid-February on the station Talk Sport. But the reality is that Pogba signed in 2016 for five years, until 2021, with United’s unilateral option to extend for an additional twelve months. That clause is one of the obligations that the CEO, Woodward, systematically imposes on all footballers. Bruno Fernandes has also had to sign it. However, according to a sources aware of the situation of Pogba to AS, In the case of the French, this possibility of extending the contract for one year is useless. “It would only serve to anger the footballer and force him out, or hopelessly leave him a year later.” United are therefore obliged to try to renew him this summer, by mutual agreement, so that Pogba does not enter his last year of contract. Madrid has an ideal opportunity.center_img Zidane and Pogba maintain an excellent relationship. The footballer fits into this new football with rapid transitions proposed by the French coach in this second stage at the helm of Madrid. The two could see each other last October in Dubai.

first_imgLA PUENTE – City officials created a committee that will look at how a city-owned snack bar is used after the mayor questioned an arrangement between two sports groups. The committee, established by the City Council last week, will discuss whether a policy should be created to govern use of the snack bar at La Puente Park. A 2004 court settlement between the city and the La Puente Girls Softball Association led to softball teams sharing use of La Puente Park and its snack bar with the La Puente National Little League. Under an agreement struck between the sports groups three years ago, Little League pays about $4,200 to the softball association, which forfeits its use of the snack bar. “All the equipment is basically owned by the city of La Puente and if anybody is going to make any money it should be the city,” Perez said. The city doesn’t have a policy that would cover the practice, which City Manager Carol Cowley said isn’t illegal. “If softball says the only time it will allow the Little League to use the snack bar is to give us X amount of money, that’s fine, too,” Perez said. Councilman John Solis, who is president of the softball association, voted against the committee. Danny Ayala, the president of the La Puente National Little League, said the group is satisfied with the agreement. He declined to say how much his group pays the softball association, but said it was equitable. Ayala didn’t know why the mayor raised the issue now. He said 400 boys and girls belong to the Little League, which has 32 teams. Solis said this is the third year of the agreement and softball gets about $4,200 from Little League, which it uses for the operation of its softball teams. There are 12 teams and about 180 girls, he added. Solis said the city has no jurisdiction over the agreement. While the city owns the park and the snack bar, Solis said Little League, softball and football pay when the Coke machine, air conditioning or the plumbing breaks down. City Councilwoman Renee Chavez said she hadn’t heard anything negative about the agreement between the groups. “And my opinion is if there’s nothing wrong with the two leagues and there’s no legal issues that will hurt the city then I don’t know why we even need to bother with this item,” Chavez said. The court settlement came after the ACLU, on behalf of the La Puente Girls Softball Association, sued La Puente in 2003 claiming the city discriminated against girl softball players by denying them equal access to playing fields at La Puente Park. Back then, the girls played at Nelson Elementary and the Little League had use of the fields at the park. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2718 Mayor Lou Perez initially wanted a policy banning the practice, but in the end suggested creating a committee to review the practice. “Why should the Little League pay them?” he said. The committee will consist of the city attorney, city manager, Councilman Louie Lujan and representatives from both sports groups. Perez said no money should be exchanged since the city owns the park, the snack bar, lighting and the equipment in the fields. The legal settlement only ensures that the city give both groups equal use of the park and the snack bar, Perez said. last_img read more
