Manchester United Transfer News: Latest on Harry Kane, Top Red Devils Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur believe the idea of selling Harry Kane to Manchester United for £100 million is a “laughable notion” as they value him at almost double that.

According to Ed Malyon for The Independent, Spurs will not even consider the possibility of letting Kane go as he is their “most-prized asset,” but if they were to sell him, then “any deal for Kane would not only need to be a world-record fee, but closer to £200 million than £100 million.”

Malyon added United manager Jose Mourinho is a long-time admirer of the 23-year-old, but the club accept he will be difficult to land for the time being, though they hope Kane could be willing to move if Spurs fail to maintain their status as title contenders and UEFA Champions League regulars.

Per Squawka Football, Kane has been the most prolific striker in the Premier League over the last three seasons:

Indeed, despite two spells out with injury limiting him to 38 appearances in all competitions, the striker notched a magnificent 35 goals and seven assists last year, and he been consistently prolific since bursting on to the scene at White Hart Lane as a youngster.

Football.London’s Ben Harris noted the way he has continued to defy his critics:

Kane has proved himself to be among the deadliest hitmen in Europe, and he’s the calibre of player that would be perfect for United.

Even with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last term, the Red Devils have lacked a cutting edge for some time, which has contributed to their failure to challenge for the Premier League title.

In the past, United would have had relatively little trouble in securing one of Spurs’ top stars—as they did with the likes of Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov—but Tottenham’s transformation into a side capable of competing with England’s elite, thanks in part to Kane’s form, will make it difficult to land him.

What’s more, in a market where a player such as Kylian Mbappe could be worth nine figures on the back of one—admittedly fantastic—season, Kane’s value has rocketed after each passing year of scoring close to or more than 30 goals in all competitions.

United’s biggest hope of getting him is if Spurs fade away from the top four. But, if the north London club keep Kane, their other stars and manager Mauricio Pochettino, that doesn’t look likely to happen any time soon.

Meanwhile, Besiktas official Umut Guner has poured cold water on the idea that Anderson Talisca, who is on loan at the Turkish club from Benfica, will be joining United this summer.

Turkish-Football quoted him as saying: 

“There is no deal with Manchester United or anyone else in place. We agreed to a two-year deal with Benfica. The loan did [have] a clause that he had to activate the option, which we did. 

Talisca will stay at Besiktas on loan for another season. Reports claiming that he can be signed for his £22 million release clause are false, he has a deal with us. If a club wants to sign him now they will have to wait another 12 months.”

Sport Witness had already cast doubt on such reports:

The Brazilian playmaker had a strong season in Turkey, racking up 17 goals and six assists in all competitions.

He’s a real threat from distance, per Squawka Football:

United fans shouldn’t be too discouraged by the news, however. While goals and creativity need to be on the agenda this summer, the 23-year-old is yet to show he would be capable of making the step up required to thrive at Old Trafford despite his good season.

Should he build on his campaign with an even better one next year, then he could be worth considering.

NBA Trade Rumors: Latest Buzz Surrounding Paul George, Kevin Love and More

The 2017 NBA draft is over and free agency won’t officially begin until July 6. This means that there’s nothing exciting going for basketball fans, right? No way! We’re just getting into the hottest part of the offseason, when trade rumors fly like a Steph Curry half-court shot.

We already saw one blockbuster trade on draft night, when the Chicago Bulls shipped Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Other high-profile guys like Kristaps Porzingis and Paul George weren’t dealt on or before the draft, but this doesn’t mean they won’t be moved before the offseason ends.

What might unfold on the trade front as we dive deeper into the summer? We don’t know for sure, but we know there are virtually limitless possibilities. We’re here to dive into the latest trade buzz.

          

Knicks Wanted to Dump Noah

The New York Knicks didn’t trade Porzingis before the draft, and only the team knows how close it came to actually doing so. However, the young star apparently wasn’t the only player the team was looking to move.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN.com, they also wanted to deal Joakim Noah.

“Sources told Ramona Shelburne and I that Noah’s name came up in multiple discussions about possible Porzingis trades with Jackson and the Knicks looking to send out the remainder of the four-year, $72 million contract that he signed last offseason,” Begley wrote.

Including Noah in a trade package with Porzingis may have been a deal-breaker for many teams seriously interested in making a deal. Noah is due to make more than $55.5 million over the next three seasons, and all of it is guaranteed.

Noah hasn’t exactly worked out so far in New York. While he did average 8.8 rebounds per game, he only added five points and 0.8 blocks per. That isn’t the type of production that warrants more than $55 million over three years.

In addition, Noah is in the midst of a 20-game suspension for using a banned substance and won’t be eligible for the first 12 games next season.

It’s easy to see why the Knicks were interested in moving Noah and why other teams weren’t so keen on acquiring him.

            

Pacers Confident the Right Deal Will Get Done with George

The Indiana Pacers didn’t manage to move George before the draft either. It probably would have benefited the team to do so before the draft, as George only has one year remaining on his current contract. That means a team trading for him is guaranteed nothing more than a one-year rental.

It would probably be easier to convince a team to part with draft capital for that rental rather than proven veteran talent.

However, general manager Kevin Pritchard still believes the Pacers will be able to negotiate a valuable deal, according to Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star:

There’s no telling what kind of draft package would have been enough to acquire George, but the Los Angeles Lakers definitely had the ammunition. They entered the draft with three first-round picks, including the second overall selection.

The Lakers have also shown their fair share of interest in George.

L.A. was content to use its draft picks, but this doesn’t mean Indiana’s right deal won’t eventually come from the Lakers. According to Marc Stein and Chris Haynes of ESPN.com, the Lakers and the Houston Rockets are still interested in acquiring George:

“Although no trade for George came to fruition last week, sources say that both the Rockets and the Lakers remain determined to keep pushing for their own George deals. It’s widely believed that the Celtics, meanwhile, want to sign a marquee free agent this summer such as Utah’s Gordon Hayward and then trade for George.”

If the Boston Celtics really are interested in acquiring George too, then the Pacers are right to believe they’ll be able to land a quality deal. They certainly won’t want for suitors.

        

Cavaliers Looking to Move Love

The Cleveland Cavaliers are also reportedly interested in acquiring George. According to Stein, the Cavs have looked into a possible three-way trade that also involves the Denver Nuggets:

Presumably, the Nuggets would ship young players and/or draft assets to Indiana, while Love would head to Denver and George would head to Cleveland. This deal would make a ton of sense, considering Cleveland lacks youth and draft capital.

Per Stein and Haynes, these three-way trade discussions actually took place before the draft, and while a deal didn’t get done, sources indicated that the Cavaliers will continue trying to trade for George.

Would such a trade still involve shipping out Love? According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, not necessarily:

It’s certainly easy to see why the Cavaliers wouldn’t be quick to part with Love. He might not be the superstar he was with the Timberwolves, but he’s still a valuable shooter and one of the best rebounders around. The problem is that he’s also the only significant trade chip the Cavaliers may actually consider parting with.

Guys like Tristan Thompson and Iman Shumpert aren’t going to excite a lot of teams, and the Cavaliers definitely won’t trade LeBron James or Kyrie Irving.

Love really is the only sizable piece of trade bait the Cavaliers have.

Louis Riddick Denies Report He Was Contacted for Chiefs GM Interview

ESPN NFL analyst Louis Riddick is reportedly a candidate for the Kansas City Chiefs‘ vacant general manager job after John Dorsey was surprisingly fired last week.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Chiefs would like to interview Riddick next week. Riddick, 48, last served in a front office as the director of pro personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2010-13. He denied being contacted by Kansas City:

The Chiefs fired Dorsey on Thursday after a successful four-year tenure—the same day the team announced a contract extension for head coach Andy Reid.

“I notified John that we would not be extending his contract beyond the 2017 season, and after consideration, we felt it was in his best interests and the best interests of the team to part ways now,” owner Clark Hunt said. “This decision, while a difficult one, allows John to pursue other opportunities as we continue our preparations for the upcoming season and the seasons to come. My family and I sincerely appreciate John’s work over the last four-and-a-half years, and we wish him nothing but the best in the future.”

The timing of the decision was odd, given this is typically the most stable period for franchises. Almost every major free agent and draft pick has been signed, and not many big decisions loom until it comes time to cut rosters to 53 men in September.

Rapoport reported Thursday the Chiefs and Dorsey discussed a contract extension, so this could be a case of negotiations gone sour.

Riddick has no experience running a team but has made a name for himself as one of the brightest football minds in media. He takes a measured approach in assessing decision-making that’s made him an invaluable commodity at ESPN, which has increased his profile each year since he joined the network.

The proposed Riddick interview signals the Chiefs plan to extend their search outside the organization for Dorsey’s replacement. Brett Veach and Mike Borgonzi, the team’s co-directors of player personnel, seem like the most plausible in-house candidates.

Manchester United Transfer News: Latest on Harry Kane, Top Red Devils Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur believe the idea of selling Harry Kane to Manchester United for £100 million is a “laughable notion” as they value him at almost double that.

According to Ed Malyon for The Independent, Spurs will not even consider the possibility of letting Kane go as he is their “most-prized asset,” but if they were to sell him, then “any deal for Kane would not only need to be a world-record fee, but closer to £200 million than £100 million.”

Isaiah Thomas Calls NBA All-Defensive Team Snubs of Celtics Teammates ‘A Joke’

Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas didn’t take kindly to his teammates Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart and Jae Crowder being left off the All-NBA Defensive Teams announced Monday, calling the voting “a joke” on Twitter.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul and Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley comprised the NBA All-Defensive First Team, per NBA.com.

Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies, Danny Green of the Spurs, Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans, Andre Roberson of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks made the All-Defensive Second Team.

Bradley received the most points (46) among players who didn’t make the All-NBA team, captured 12 first-team votes and even finished 10th in the voting overall. But because he finished fifth among guards in the voting, he didn’t make an All-Defensive team.

Injuries limited Bradley to 55 games this past season, a potential factor among voters. Still, he has established himself as one of the league’s best perimeter defenders and two-way players.

Thomas wasn’t the only player surprised by Bradley’s perceived snub. Former teammate Jared Sullinger also expected him to be an All-Defensive selection: 

Smart, meanwhile, received 21 total points and five first-team votes, while Crowder earned five points with the voters. Surprisingly, Thomas also received a single point in the voting. While the diminutive guard made a huge impact on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game, the Celtics regularly had to hide him on the defensive end, making his appearance in the vote tally questionable at best.

Germaine de Randamie Stripped of UFC Title for Refusing to Fight Cyborg Justino

Germaine de Randamie has been stripped of her UFC women’s featherweight championship after refusing to defend her title against Cris “Cyborg” Justino, the promotion announced Monday.

Justino will instead fight Megan Anderson at UFC 214 for the newly vacant championship.

“UFC has informed Germaine de Randamie and her management team that she is being removed as the women’s featherweight champion due to her unwillingness to fight the No. 1 ranked contender, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino,” UFC said in a statement, per ESPN.com.

“UFC maintains that any champion is expected to accept fights against the top contenders in their respective weight classes in order to maintain the integrity of the sport.”

De Randamine reacted to the news in an interview with Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com:

“I had absolutely no idea that I was being stripped of the belt,” de Randamie told Helwani. “I found out through social media. Cyborg (Justino) is going to fight Megan (Anderson) for the belt.

“Nobody ever told me anything about it.”

Justino (17-1) is 2-0 since moving to UFC last year. She defeated Leslie Smith and Lina Lansberg via TKO in her first two bouts, needing only three total rounds.

“Since I’ve been fighting in the UFC, people have been saying that there are no women my weight to fight,” Justino said. “This proves that wasn’t true. Instead of fighting someone who has lost their last couple of fights at a lower weight, I’m getting the chance to fight the No. 3-ranked featherweight in the world.”

De Randamine’s public reason for refusing to fight Justino is her past performance-enhancing drug use. Cyborg was suspended for a year after failing a drug test in 2011 and also failed an out-of-competition drug test in January, though that was later proven to be for a legitimate medical issue.

“Germaine and her team have talked, and the position is that she will not fight ‘Cyborg’ because ‘Cyborg’ is a known and proven cheater,” Brian Butler, de Randamine’s manager, said in the statement to MMAjunkie’s Mike Bohn. “Even after so much scrutiny has been put on ‘Cyborg,’ she still managed to pop for something and will always be a person of suspicion who is trying to beat the system rather than just conforming to the rules.”

Anderson (8-2) will be making her UFC debut. Her most recent bout was a win over Charmaine Tweet at Invicta FC 21, which gave her the interim featherweight championship in that promotion. Anderson said she has signed a multi-fight agreement with UFC and looks forward to building the 145-pound division. 

“I definitely think the UFC created this division around one person [Justino], but unfortunately I don’t think she is someone you can build around,” Anderson said, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com. “As dominant as she’s been, she doesn’t have the other aspects it takes for that. I do.

“And I think by signing a multi-fight agreement—say worst-case scenario, it doesn’t work out as planned on July 29, and the UFC cuts me? That would just reiterate that they’re not invested in 145 pounds. So I think whatever the UFC’s plan is for me, whether I win or lose this fight, will show how they view this division.”

Nate Diaz Reportedly Being Sued by Former Agent over Conor McGregor Fight Money

Nate Diaz is still looking for his next fight, but first he will reportedly have to resolve payments from a previous bout. 

According to TMZ, Diaz’s former agents, the Ballengee Group, filed a lawsuit against the UFC star worth more than $1 million in damages. They claim they weren’t paid their portion from the UFC 202 fight against Conor McGregor.

The agents reportedly negotiated the fight deal for UFC 202, as they have for other notable bouts for Diaz, but were “unexpectedly” fired and allege they did not receive fair compensation.

Diaz hasn’t competed since the August 2016 matchup against McGregor, which resulted in a loss by decision after five rounds. This was a rematch after the California native earned win via submission in their first battle.

While there has been speculation about a third bout between Diaz and McGregor, the latter will first fight Floyd Mayweather in a highly anticipated boxing match on Aug. 26.

Boxing star Adrien Broner recently discussed a potential bout against Diaz on the same night, presumably in boxing. Diaz has never competed professionally as a boxer but is 20-11 in his MMA career.

BMW International Open 2017: Sergio Garcia, Richard Bland Share Saturday Lead

Sergio Garcia and Richard Bland share the lead at the 2017 BMW International Open after finishing on five under after Round 3 at the Golfclub Munchen Eichenried in Munich, Germany, on Saturday.

Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren is one shot behind the pair in third after shooting a round of 69.

For the full leaderboard, visit the European Tour official website.

Bland recovered from a bogey on the par-three second to eventually hit a hat-trick of birdies on the front nine. Things got better for Bland when he birdied the 11th, before hitting an eagle on the par-four 13.

The European Tour official Twitter feed relayed highlights of the terrific eagle shot:

His eagle putt left Bland at five under with just five holes left to play, giving him a two-stroke lead over Masters champion Garcia.

The Spaniard had started the back nine brilliantly, sinking birdies at the 11th and 12th holes to briefly take the lead:

Unfortunately, Garcia’s progress was stunted when he could only manage a bogey on the par-four 14. The mistake let a resurgent Bland seize the initiative.

Garcia responded emphatically to his setback by shooting a birdie on the 15th. He managed par one hole later to cut the gap to Bland to just one shot.

Another birdie, this one on the par-three 17th, put Garcia back in first place, albeit in a tie with Bland. The latter found par on the 14th, 15th and 16th holes to stay in the mix for the lead.

Bland hit par twice more to finish on 67, while par on the 18th gave Garcia the same score and a tie for the lead.

Lagergren was the best of the rest, with the Swede recovering from an early bogey to finish just one shot out of the lead. Lagergren has third spot to himself after Argentinian Andres Romero was guilty of a costly bogey on the 18th.

Romero and Lagergren will be among the late group playing Sunday, but all eyes will be on the duel at the top, with nothing to separate Garcia and Bland.

Stephen Vogt Claimed by Brewers After Being DFA’d by Athletics

The Milwaukee Brewers announced on Sunday that they claimed former Oakland Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt off waivers.

Vogt, 32, is hitting .217 with four home runs and 20 RBI this season. The Athletics designated him for assignment on Thursday, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com.

As Crasnick noted: “[Vogt] was an American League All-Star in 2015 and 2016 and a fan favorite in Oakland, but he became expendable this year when the A’s decided to give Bruce Maxwell, 26, the majority of the team’s at-bats at catcher.”

While Vogt provided pop in the lineup for the Athletics, hitting a combined 32 homers and 127 RBI in his All-Star seasons, he also was a liability defensively, allowing opposing baserunners to successfully steal 25 straight times against him, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle

Indeed, Vogt’s defensive WAR for his career is merely 0.7, per Baseball Reference.

In Milwaukee, Vogt likely will split time behind the plate with Manny Pina, and he could spend some time at first base and in the outfield as well. If he regains his pop from the previous two seasons, however, he could give the Brewers a nice boost on offense.

Maikel Franco Rumored to Be ‘More Than Available’ in Trade from Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies have made struggling third baseman Maikel Franco available in trade talks as MLB‘s hot stove heats up ahead of July’s trade deadline.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe categorized Franco as “more than available,” though it’s unclear how much compensation the Phillies would want in return.

Franco, 24, is hitting .221/.280/.365 with nine home runs and 37 runs batted in this season. His struggles have been a consistent drag on the Phillies’ lineup, which currently sits 29th in runs scored and near the bottom in every major offensive category.

“We believe in him. We have confidence that he will [break out]. There are a lot of indicators, whether you’re looking at his exit velocities and launch angles,” Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said on Comcast SportsNet last month (h/t Matt Breen of Philly.com).

“Again, I don’t want to say he’s been a victim of bad luck by itself—it’s not the only thing but there are reasons to believe he can get out this. It could happen today, it could happen tomorrow, it could happen next week, we don’t know.”

The Phillies have kept him in the lineup despite his struggles to little positive effect. His .230 batting average in June is his best of the season, but Franco’s defense has also not been on par with where it was a year ago. FanGraphs’ formula measures him as a net offensive and defensive negative, and his -0.7 WAR is the worst among all qualifying third basemen.

Dangling Franco now would amount to a massive buy-low, so it would be a surprise to see him get traded. It’s more likely the Phillies try sending him down to the minors to get the kinks worked out of his swing at some point. But if Franco is available at a low cost, other teams should definitely be kicking the tires.
