  • Verratti joins the club of smoking footballers


copyright  twitter Photographed in Ibiza a cigarette in hand, Marco Verratti is far, very far from being the only footballer to smoke ...
The image may not please the PSG. We see Marco Verratti, eager to leave the Parisian club to join the Barca, cigarette in hand on a yacht in Ibiza. But the Italian, already photographed the beak with the beak several times, is obviously not the only footballer in this case. Even if this may seem difficult to reconcile for a high-level sportsman, with the ever-increasing demands for professionalism.
In France, we remember in particular Fabien Barthez, caught red-handed in the famous documentary "Les Eyes dans les Bleus", a habit that the tricolor porter also had when he played at Manchester United, as Paul Scholes told the Daily Mail in 2014: "At United, there was often a lot of smoke in the laundry in the morning because Laurent Blanc and Fabien Barthez did not start training without smoking a cigarette.
Nainggolan: "I'm not ashamed"




Zinedine Zidane was also photographed with a cigarette during the 2006 World Cup, on the eve of the semi-final against Portugal, before finding in the final another adept, the legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, smoker like His compatriot Mario Balotelli. Among the French, Olivier Giroud, Philippe Mexès or Jérémy Mathieu, and, on the Spanish side, Gerard Piqué and Cesc Fabregas.
On the other side of the Channel, Wayne Rooney, Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere are also cigarette lovers, while Jamie Vardy prefers chewing tobacco, which he could not hide at the last Euro. A competition where Radja Nainggolan had been filmed a packet in his hand. "I smoke, I can not hide it and I'm not ashamed, everybody knows," said the Belgian. "I know I should set a good example, I have children ... But I'm just a footballer, I do my job." Or the rare confession of a smoking footballer, in an environment where the cigarette is obviously not advised. But not (yet?) Forbidden ...

  • Dortmund "70 M € or Aubameyang is not negotiable"

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be sold off by Dortmund, which claims, in particular in Liverpool, a sum equal to the performance of Gabonese in recent seasons.
The clubs interested in the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are therefore fixed: the Borussia Dortmund, through its director-general Hans-Joachim Watzke, communicated in Bild the amount of the transfer fee below which the club of the Ruhr refuses to engage in any negotiations for his Gabon striker, who scored 42 goals in all competitions last season.
"If I want to take a new course, I have to leave this summer", declared last January a "PEA" under contract until 2020. A will that remains more than ever topical for the one who can boast of having Compiled some 85 goals in 125 games played with the BvB. With since he laid down his suitcases on the Bundesliga, he is also the best African player.
The big blow of the Reds?
Only, less than 70 million euros, contenders, including the Liverpool Reds, said they are ready to break their piggy bank even if they have just recruited Mohamed Salah, can go their way. "We will pay attention to an offer when a club will show us its financial interest too," Watzke said. "If an offer of more than € 70 million had been reached, it would have to go through the usual procedure, which has not yet been the case," the manager said. Clearly, this negotiation, if it is to take place, will have to take place before 26 July, the date of the resumption of training for the Borussen and therefore for Aubameyang in case the situation does not resolve by then.
The PSG, who for a long time seemed interested in Aubameyang, would have finally given up on this file.

  • The judge declares: "No prison for Messi"

The judge declares: "No prison for Messi"
Sentenced to 21 months in prison for tax evasion in July 2016, Lionel Messi will not end up behind bars and will be satisfied with a simple fine.
In July 2016, Lionel Messi and his father, Jorge Horacio, were convicted by the Spanish courts for tax evasion, due to irregularities amounting to € 4.16 million on image rights collected between 2007 and 2009.
And the five-time Golden Ball had been sentenced to 21 months in prison, with a fine of 2 million euros and the reimbursement of the misappropriated sum. But as one would expect, the Argentinean star of Barça does not stammer behind bars, which is often the case in Spain for sentences of less than two years for first-time prisoners.
The Barcelona prosecutor's office proposes to pay a fine of 255,000 euros, or 400 euros per day for 21 months, to avoid prison. A proposal that the one who has always claimed his innocence should probably accept, when his appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court last May.

  • Fabinho returns to the rumors of Manchester United
Fabinho returns to the rumors of Manchester United

Rumors about his future are well under way. Brilliant with AS Monaco last season, Fabinho, who has a ok to exit, should not be long in the Principality. If followed closely by many European pundits including the PSG, the track leading to Manchester United is the one that returns with the most insistence on the side of the English press.

And for the Brazilian, the possibility of joining the winner of the Europa League is not to exclude. "It's tempting," said the Monegasque midfielder to the media auriverde Esporte Interativo about a possible transfer to the Red Devils.
"I'm going to talk with my agent, and Monaco too, to make the right decision, but it's a big club, it's clear that I'm going to think about it ...", he added. Not really reassuring for the vice-champion of France, also on the record.
