Man United legend warns club not to sell Paul Pogba to Barcelona

first_imgManchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged the club NOT to sell Paul Pogba, amid claims his agent, Mino Raiola, wants him out of Old Trafford. Pogba was linked with a stunning Old Trafford exit earlier in the summer, with Jose Mourinho said to be willing to sell the midfielder.Club officials, though, were keen to see their £89million record signing stay.But Pogba is said to have been unhappy about the manager’s comments about his performances in the World Cup and, according to the Mail, sources close to the French star have indicated he would be open to leaving the Red Devils.The 25-year-old lifted the trophy with France and earned praise for his displays in Russia, but Mourinho claimed the midfielder doesn’t have the same focus with United as when he plays for Les Bleus.Pogba returned to his club on Monday after an extended break following his World Cup exploits, but Raiola remains keen to seal him a move to Barcelona, who have until the end of August to try and complete the deal. Paul Pogba is apparently unhappy with manager Jose Mourinho and is open to leaving Manchester United 3 The former defender has also pleaded with the Red Devils to bring in Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham as the transfer deadline rapidly approaches.Speculation over Pogba’s United future is rife again with only two days until the English summer window shuts.According to the Daily Mail, Raiola is keen for his client to leave United and is currently in Spain in an attempt to engineer a late move to Barcelona.Reports on Monday night claimed United had rejected a stunning bid of €50million plus two players – believed to be Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina – from the Catalan club.It is suggested super-agent Raiola is still in Barcelona to try and force a deal over the line.But Ferdinand – who made over 450 appearance for United – has urged his former club to keep hold on their £89million record signing.Posting on Twitter, the former England centre-back said: “Don’t you dare allow this Ed [United CEO Ed Woodward].“Manchester United is Pogba’s home – silence these rumours ASAP!” Pogba was one of France’s best players as they won the World Cup this summer Under new guidelines, the transfer window for Premier League clubs closes at 5pm on Thursday – before the first game of the new season – but teams in the rest of Europe have until the end of the month, as normal, to complete their business.Ferdinand also urged United to “get Toby Alderweireld through the door” before Thursday’s deadline.Mourinho has made signing a new centre-back his top priority in the last few days of the window.Alderweireld has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for months but the deal appears to have stalled over Tottenham’s £60million valuation of the Belgian, with United believed to be willing to offer around £40million.United have also been linked with an interest in Leicester City’s Harry Maguire, but Ferdinand wants the club to move for Alderweireld instead. Rio Ferdinand has pleaded with Manchester United to keep Paul Pogba 3 Don’t you dare allow this ED… #MUFC is Pogba’s home!!

Geologists Puzzle Over Egyptian Craters

first_imgA set of craters deep in the Egyptian desert has geologists scratching their heads.  Discovery Channel News says that they look neither like impact craters nor known volcanic phenomena.  “It is a strange and new thing,” reported one French scientist.  Jay Melosh of the University of Arizona remarked, “There’s nothing in our current geological literature that describes them.  It would be most valuable to try to figure it out.”    The impact of these craters may reach beyond the Earth.  If some unknown process caused these structures, planetary scientists may have to reconsider the origin of at least some surface features on other worlds:Besides explaining the Gilf Kebir region, the information might prove useful elsewhere on Earth and beyond.  Mars, for instance, was once rich in both water and volcanism, and today the planet has plenty of cratered-looking land, Melosh explained.  Perhaps some of those famous pockmarks are not impact craters either.The article has land-based and satellite pictures of some of the craters.  There are some 1,300 of them.Wouldn’t it be something if the explanation turns out to involve a non-impact process, like a new method for internal heat to escape from the interior, unlike classical volcanic or hydrothermal processes?  In Death Valley, for instance, the Ubehebe Crater and neighboring bowl-shaped features were thought to have been formed by steam explosions.  What if planets or moons had global episodes that, like acne outbreaks or bubbling oatmeal, produced vast numbers of circular features simultaneously?  If that sounds bizarre, it can’t be much more unexpected than finding geysers on Enceladus (11/28/2005) and Mars (08/17/2006).  For decades, scientists have merely assumed that most round, rimmed craters in the solar system were caused by impacts.  Undoubtedly, many were formed that way.  Features such as crater rays, ejecta blankets and central peaks may prove diagnostic of impacts, if other processes are incapable of mimicking these effects.    Remember that scientists have never witnessed a large impact crater being formed (the impacts on Jupiter in 1994 don’t count, because that was not a solid surface).  Meteor expert Gene Shoemaker used to shoot bullets at rocks to study impact effects, but whether his experiments on small scales can be extrapolated to all scales is an assumption, not an observation.  Even if impacts are the primary cause, they might not be the only cause.  The possibility that some Martian and lunar craters may have formed internally, combined with the revelation that secondary cratering is common, (06/08/2006) could have major ramifications on our theories about planetary surfaces – and how old they are.  Here we see structures right on our home planet that don’t fit any of the standard geological explanations.  Puzzles are good for science.  This should be an interesting case to follow.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
