Chelsea transfer news: £75m deal, winger WANTS move, Luiz to help land target and more rumours

first_img Paul Pogba: Chelsea will have to break the bank to sign the Juventus man – click for more Chelsea gossip – “Paul is the most expensive player of them all. He would cost more than Messi and Ronaldo,” Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola said. Massimo Allegri claimed the France midfielder is only going to get better and when quizzed on Pogba’s future said: “Everything has a value in life, unfortunately, and the outstanding players are hard to replace, but things always move on in football.” One figure discussed is a mere £75m, but Pogba has also been linked with Man City, who apparently see him as a replacement for Yaya Toure. 5 Juventus manager Massimo Allegri presumably cannot wait for the transfer window to slam shut – there is no other way to close it – where speculation over midfielder Paul Pogba will cease for another six months.Chelsea are among a group of clubs said to be interested in the 21-year-old, but the Blues have other options, too.We’re not sure the interest in Juan Cuadrado has been long enough to be considered a saga just yet, but the rumours still continue over a possible departure.Click the arrow on the right to read the latest on the Colombian’s possible move in addition to Chelsea’s other transfer targets as well as the latest on possible Stamford Bridge exits. 5 5 Andre Schurrle to Dortmund to replace Reus? Click for more Chelsea gossip – Wolfsburg were the club thought to be on the brink of signing Schurrle, but now in a shock move, relegation battlers Borussia Dortmund are in the frame. With their in-demand winger Marco Reus said to be departing in the summer, German publication Bild report that Schurrle is the ideal player to replace him. Chelsea, though, will probably want to offload him in January, though, in order to bring in new faces. Douglas Costa: ‘Don’t price me out of transfer’ Dougie pleads – click for more Chelsea gossip – If a move for Cuadrado is not successful, then Shakhtar’s attacker has been identified, with a fee of around £18m mentioned. Costa has asked his employers not to price him out of a move and recently admitted it “would be a dream” to play for Chelsea and explained working under Mourinho would make him happy. Juan Cuadrado: Chelsea to offer Salah to help bring Cuadrado to England? Click for more Chelsea gossip – Fiorentina are keen to keep Cuadrado in Florence and appear determined to make Chelsea activate his £26.8m release clause. However, now it is rumoured Chelsea have offered winger Mohamed Salah to sweeten the deal. 5 Raphael Varane: David Luiz to help Chelsea land Real Madrid stopper? – It is no secret Jose Mourinho rates Varane very highly and has previously described him as the best young defender in the world. The 21-year-old played for Mourinho when the Chelsea manager was in charge of Real Madrid and now it is being reported the Spanish club want to bring in David Luiz from PSG, which could see Varane leave for London where Mourinho is low on decent alternatives to first choice centre-backs John Terry and Gary Cahill. 5last_img read more

Owners of seized items sought

first_imgIn the man’s pocket was a pill container with the jewelry. The rings and pendant were on a chain. The man told the deputy he got the jewelry from another man but the name didn’t check out later, Leyva said. Believing the jewelry was stolen, the deputy arrested the man. He was released from custody Aug. 31. In the meantime, the jewelry sits in the station’s evidence locker awaiting its owner. But just saying you are the owner wouldn’t be enough to convince deputies. “They have to bring some documentation, either proof of sale or photos,” he said. To claim the jewelry, call Leyva at (562) 949-2421. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PICO RIVERA – Suspect? Check. Possible stolen rings and pendant? Check and check. Victims? Well … Detectives from the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station are looking for the owner or owners of a diamond solitaire ring, its matching diamond-studded jacket ring and a gold pendant with the initials “GB.” The rings and the pendant were seized from an 18-year-old Pico Rivera man arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property last week. The man was later released and no charges were filed against him because investigators couldn’t find a victim, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Al Leyva. But deputies kept the jewelry in case its rightful owner shows up. If that happens, then they can build a case. “I can’t believe someone had these stolen and no one reported it stolen. Maybe it wasn’t taken in our area.” Leyva said. “We’re just hoping someone would call us and say, `It’s mine.”‘ He said deputies looked through reports but found nothing that would link the rings and the pendant to a crime. The jewelry could have been taken in a robbery or most likely during a residential burglary, he added. The jewelry ended up in the possession of the law Aug. 29 when a deputy stopped a man in the 9100 block of Canford Street. “He looked suspicious to the deputy, kind of lurking around this one house. He doesn’t live on the street,” Leyva said. last_img

Governor tries to make headway via Latino town hall

first_img harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com THE FACTS “Voz y Voto” with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will air in Los Angeles at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on KMEX (Channel 34). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger reached out to Latino voters Tuesday in a town-hall forum on Spanish-language network Univision, moving to shore up sagging support among a key constituency. Amid audience questioning, Schwarzenegger said he opposes a national amnesty program for illegal immigrants – but supports a guest-worker program – and repeated his hope that the federal government addresses driver’s license and other immigration issues before California does. “It’s a federal issue; it’s not a state issue,” Schwarzenegger said. “It’s not for the governor to decide; it’s for the president, for Senate and Congress – for them to decide how to deal with that issue.” Schwarzenegger, who earlier this year vetoed a measure that would have granted driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants – has generally been receiving lower poll ratings from the Latino community – which makes up about 14 percent of the electorate – than from white voters, according to the Public Policy Institute of California. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Political analysts say it’s a reflection of the governor generally taking positions unpopular among Latinos, including voicing support for the Minutemen militia group of private citizens patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border. “Most of it has to do with the ability of Latino leadership and Democrats to point out he’s really done nothing special, has taken no special interest in the Latino community,” said Fernando Guerra, director of the Center for the Study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University. Members of the audience complained that the governor has not yet met with Mexican President Vicente Fox, and had not appointed enough Latinos to judgeships or high-ranking positions in his administration. Schwarzenegger said he had planned to meet with Fox earlier but had to cancel because of scheduling conflicts and still plans to meet with him. He also said he is making efforts to appoint more Latinos to judgeships and positions in his administration. Harrison Sheppard, (916)446-6723 last_img read more

S.F.S. finds election not so smooth sailing

first_imgEditor’s note: It’s Politics reports Saturdays on the ins and outs of Whittier-area politics and city government. It wasn’t exactly smooth sailing Tuesday for Santa Fe Springs’ first experience with the Los Angeles county running the city’s election. Until this year, the city held its own election in March. Consolidating it with the school board elections was expected to save the city an estimated $47,000. Early Tuesday morning, one of the city’s polling places opened late when there weren’t enough precinct workers. Another problem was the change in the ballot that now includes a long stub attached to the ballot for write-in purposes if necessary, McCormack said. In the past,the county had a gray sleeve that provided ballot secrecy and doubled as a write-in ballot, she said. The stub was supposed to be detached if it was blank, she said. “However, instructions to the poll workers were not as clear as they should have been,” she said. Thus, many of the stubs weren’t removed and had to be removed at Norwalk, delaying the vote count. DEMOCRATIC MEETING: The Robert F. Kennedy Democratic Club will hold its annual election of officers at its 7 p.m. Monday meeting at the Sizzler Restaurant, 15252 Rosecrans Blvd., La Mirada. For more information, call (562) 943-8527. GOING TO THE PUBLIC: Assemblyman Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, and his staff will be present to assist residents from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Whittier Library’s Nixon Room, 7344 S. Washington Ave., Whittier. FUND-RAISER: Rick Ramirez, a candidate in the 56th Assembly District Democratic primary, will hold a fund-raiser from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 19 at his home in Norwalk. Cost is $50 per person. For reservations, call (310) 625-1481. IMMIGRATION TALK: Jim Gilchrest, founder of the Minuteman Project, will speak at the 7:30 a.m. Friday breakfast of the Whittier-San Gabriel Valley chapter of the Los Angeles County Lincoln Clubs. The event will be held at the Pacific Palms Conference Center, One Industry Hills Parkway, Industry. Cost is $25 per person. For reservations, write LACLC, 6055 E. Washington Blvd., Suite 228, Commerce. Or call Peter Bylsma, (323) 215-4500, or or e-mail bylsma@lagop.org. Mail items for It’s Politics to the Whittier Daily News, P.O. Box 581, Whittier, CA 90608; fax to (562) 698-0450; phone (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022; or e-mail mike.sprague@sgvn.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It didn’t look good,” Santa Fe Springs City Manager Fred Latham said. “I don’t know that we’ve had that happen. It did result in two to three people leaving without voting.” Then, the final vote wasn’t released until 3 a.m. Usually. Santa Fe Springs gets final results between 9 and 9:30 p.m. The slow process was caused by some county problems and the fact that ballots from each of the four precincts were taken to staging centers, rather than right to the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office in Norwalk. They didn’t get to the staging centers until after 10 p.m., Latham said. Conny McCormack, registrar-recorder/county clerk, said the county always sends ballots to 48 staging centers, because it would be too confusing to have people take them to the Norwalk office. last_img read more

Father and two sons rescued from rip current off Bundoran beach

first_imgA volunteer lifeboat crew with Bundoran RNLI rescued three swimmers from the sea just off Bundoran Beach yesterday. A father and his two sons were swimming off the main beach in Bundoran on Monday night when they caught in a rip current.  Sea conditions changed suddenly and the call for help was raised as the family got into difficulty.Bundoran RNLI were called by Malin Head Coast Guard after 8pm and proceeded immediately to the scene, a short distance from the lifeboat station. The sea state was showing two to three metre broken swells and the water was choppy. The father and sons were immediately recovered onto the lifeboat and brought back to the station where they were met by ambulance and taken to Sligo General Hospital to be checked out.  All swimmers were wearing wet suits with one of the group also wearing a personal floatation device.Twenty minutes after the lifeboat crew returned to station, they received another callout to swimmers in difficulty but were stood down when they had managed to get to shore safely.Commenting on the callout Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager Captain Tony McGowan said, “Conditions in the sea had been good before the callout but had taken a sudden turn for the worse. It is understand the three casualties got caught in a rip current and were in some difficulty.  Thankfully there were able to walk from the lifeboat to the waiting ambulance.”“For anyone caught in a rip current the advice is not to try to swim against it or you’ll become exhausted. If you can stand, wade don’t swim. If you can, then you should swim parallel to the shore until free of the rip and then head for shore. Always raise your hand and shout for help. We wish the three people involved in last night’s rescue a full recovery.” Rips are strong currents running out to sea, which can quickly drag people and debris away from the shallows of the shoreline and out to deeper water. Rip currents can be difficult to spot, but are sometimes identified by a channel of churning, choppy water on the sea’s surface. They can flow at 1–2mph but can reach 4–5mph, which is faster than an Olympic swimmer.Father and two sons rescued from rip current off Bundoran beach was last modified: July 19th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Bundoran RNLIrescueswimmerslast_img read more
