Anthony Martial Could Join Juventus From Manchester United In The Summer

ANTHONY MARTIAL and Dusan Vlahovic could form a deadly forward partnership at Juventus this season.

And they would be backed by Angel Di Maria in attack, with Paul Pogba backing up from midfield.

That combination up front is likely to cause problems for any defense in Italy – and could help the old lady challenge again in the Champions League.

Juventus’ interest in Martial has increased since the Frenchman’s renaissance at Manchester United this preseason.

He was in excellent form under Erik ten Hag, scoring in victories against Liverpool, Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace on the tour.

Juve still have Alvaro Morata as their No. 1 target to bolster their attack after his two successful seasons on loan from Atletico Madrid.

But if they fail to land the Spaniard, Martial could be targeted instead – however, Ten Hag would try to block any potential sale.

The ex-Monaco sensation has two years left on his current Old Trafford contract, with an option for a further year.

Otherwise, Wojciech Szczesny remains the number one goalkeeper under Max Allegri.

In their first pre-season clash, Juventus faced Guadalajara in Las Vegas in a 4-3-3 formation before taking on Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in blockbuster friendlies.

On Saturday, Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro acted as full-backs and are expected to continue those roles this season.

But it could be a new partnership at centre-back with newcomer Bremer and £60m transfer target Presnel Kimpembe that could potentially follow.

Giorgio Chiellini moved to Los Angeles this summer, while Matthijs de Ligt also moved to Bayern Munich.

There could be more changes in midfield.


Paul Pogba will be a surefire starter once he recovers from his injury.

For now, Manuel Locatelli and Weston McKennie are arguably the first choices to join him, particularly with Arthur, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey on the chopping block.

However, the Serie A giants are also eyeing a move from Kimpembe’s PSG team-mate Leonardo Paredes, who would also move into midfield.

And then Vlahovic would lead the line in attack with Di Maria and Martial in support after Morata and Paulo Dybala left and Moise Kean’s loan from Everton expired.

Roberto Firmino could also be another transfer target as another backup option – although the reported initial £20m offer was rejected by Liverpool.

Cnn'S Brian Stelter Leaves Network, 'Trusted Sources' Canceled

Presenter Brian Stelter and his CNN show, Reliable sourceswere both canceled Thursday after controversies engulfed the network.

“It’s been a rare privilege to lead a weekly news-focused show at a time when it’s never been more important,” Stelter told NPR, saying he’ll reveal more on his final show on Sunday.

CNN could have kept Stelter as an employee but apparently decided not to retain his services. CNN could also have kept its show while parting ways with Stelter. Instead, the show and Stelter will no longer be in the news organization founded by Ted Turner.

Stelter’s show achieved the lowest June episode rating since September 2019.

“Stelter came to CNN from The New York Times as the nation’s top media reporter. He’s leaving CNN, an impeccable broadcaster,” CNN’s executive vice president for talent and content development, Amy Entelis, told NPR. “We’re proud of what Brian and his team have accomplished over the years, and we’re confident their impact and influence will long outlast the show.”

In June, Breitbart News reported that new CNN chief Chris Licht was “ready to launch on-air personalities who destroyed the brand by becoming irredeemable partisan hacks,” meaning Stelter had to be on the hot seat after implementing new rebranding tactics. forward.

Stelter’s exit comes after former CNN President Jeff Zucker quit the network in February after being asked about his relationship with longtime CNN executive Allison Gollus as part of the larger investigation. wide of Andrew Cuomo, which showed former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo helped his brother, then New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, through a sexual harassment scandal.

A former CNN employee confirmed to Breitbart News in March that Stelter was “freaking out” about Zucker’s potential exit because he “will be dragged into the internal investigation given his closeness to Jeff Zucker.” Stelter did not respond to Breitbart News when asked if he was cooperating with the ongoing internal investigation at CNN following the resignation of former network president Jeff Zucker.

Stelter is well known for pushing false narratives on his show. Stelter claimed Hunter Biden’s ‘laptop’ was ‘Russian disinformation’. Still, Hunter’s laptop was verified as authentic by Emma-Jo Morris of Breitbart News in the fall of 2020. More than a year later, establishment media finally confirmed its authenticity, including CNN 532 days later.

In May, Hunter laptop repairman Mac Isaac told the New York Post he was suing CNN for “misrepresentations” related to Hunter’s laptop.

The lawsuit allegedly claims that “CNN’s broadcast of the false statement accuses the plaintiff of having committed an infamous crime, that is, treason by working with the Russians to commit a crime against the United States of America. attempting to undermine American democracy and the 2020 presidential election.”

Dolphins camp: Defense wins in two-minute drill; plus stock up, stock down

Dolphins Camp: Defense Wins In Two-Minute Drill; Plus Stock Up, Stock Down

The Miami Dolphins defense continues to get the best of the offense in two-minute drill scenarios.

The first-, second- and third-team units all had interceptions of Dolphins quarterbacks when the offense had successive opportunities to drive the length of the field needing a touchdown with limited time on the clock.

First, Tua Tagovailoa was picked off again by second-year safety Jevon Holland for Holland’s fourth interception of Tagovailoa in three days. Backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw to the end zone on one final play with the clock expiring, into the hands of safety Clayton Fejedelem. Third-string signal-caller Skylar Thompson had a pass go off fellow rookie Erik Ezukanma’s hands, and linebacker Calvin Munson came up with it.

Tagovailoa and Bridgewater dinked and dunked early in their drives, having to eventually force passes downfield pressed on time. Tagovailoa threw into traffic over the middle while getting pressured by defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah. Bridgewater had a long completion to undrafted rookie Braylon Sanders for about 45 yards against Verone McKinley on his penultimate play, but he still had to throw into a congested end zone on the final heave. The Munson interception was early in the drive, on the offense’s side of the field.

“Got to do your job. That’s what it comes down to,” said Holland about the defense’s key in late-game scenarios. “It’s a high-intensity situation where you got to do your job and then you got to let the plays come to you. Because if you try to force it, then you’re going to miss your opportunity.”

Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel has said earlier in training camp that Tagovailoa and Holland have a healthy competition going leading their respective units. Holland has gotten the best of Tagovailoa this week, and Holland spoke after practice about how they communicate to get each other better.

“I usually ask him about plays that I messed up on for,” Holland said. “I’m not really looking for him to explain what I did right or what he saw on that specific play. I’m more looking for things that bother me when I go to sleep at night and how I can correct them.”

Holland added the quarterbacks do check in with him when he gets practice interceptions, and he wants to one day break down film with them to get the altering perspectives.


To start team portions of practice, Tagovailoa ripped an impressive deep ball to Trent Sherfield for a touchdown over Holland and cornerback Xavien Howard. Sherfield also caught a deep corner from Bridgewater early in team drills. …

Tagovailoa also made fine early throws to Tyreek Hill off a play action and roll to the right and lobbing one to an open Cedrick Wilson Jr. with room to run down the right side. He had another 35-to-40-yard gain to Hill deep against Nik Needham that Hill slowed down to catch with a step on Needham. Late in 11-on-11 action, Tagovailoa found tight end Durham Smythe in the perfect spot between one high and one low defender in a zone. …

Myles Gaskin scored a short rushing touchdown on a Teddy Bridgewater-led situational drive. A Bridgewater pass to River Cracraft set the Dolphins up inside the 10-yard line. An official called holding on the play, but coaches declined the penalty to allow the play to stand. …

Salvon Ahmed had a decent run to the right side of the line early in drills and was also active on short dump-off passes. …

Wilson got open deep for Tagovailoa, and Tagovailoa delivered on target on a pass where he may have been hit if there was live contact on the quarterback, but the ball went through Wilson’s hands. …

Preston Williams caught a pass from Bridgewater for a sizable gain. He also had Elijah Hamilton cover him for a pass breakup. …

Emmanuel Ogbah, in addition to having the pressure that forced the Holland interception, also registered a separate practice sack on Tagovailoa. …

Undrafted defensive end and South Florida local Owen Carney was seen coming around the edge for a would-be sack. …

The team did early portions of practice in the indoor facility before heading out for team drills.

Stock up

As obvious as it is with his stock already high, Holland continues to consistently create turnovers in practice. For an outside-the-box selection, kicker Jason Sanders made all his field goals while the team was inside on Thursday. He’s coming off a 4-for-4 performance on field goals in the exhibition opener at Tampa.

Stock down

Rookie wide receiver and fourth-round pick Erik Ezukanma had the ball intercepted by Munson go off his hands initially while getting hit by a defensive back. He had a quiet week after building up considerable hype through a week-plus stretch of consecutive strong practices.

Injury report

Left tackle Terron Armstead missed practice Thursday after he also did not participate in team drills on Wednesday. He was coming off strong workloads in his recovery from offseason knee surgery both in Tuesday drills and the final joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.

Wide receiver Jaylen Waddle stretched with the team to start Thursday’s session but did not participate in drills as the Dolphins are taking it day to day in what McDaniel deemed a “preventative” measure for a minor injury.

Guard Solomon Kindley missed Thursday practice. Safety Eric Rowe, tackle Greg Little, outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett and fullback John Lovett also remained out.

Mar-a-Lago FBI search warrant hearing

Mar-A-Lago Fbi Search Warrant Hearing

CNN, joined by the Washington Post, NBC News and Scripps, asked a court last week to unseal documents related to the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence – including documents not covered by the Department of Justice’s own offer to unseal a selection of collateral materials.

Specifically, CNN and the other outlets are asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to unseal the entire court filing, including all probable cause affidavits filed in support of the warrant. search. These explain why investigators believe there is probable cause that a crime has been committed and that evidence of this crime existed in recent days at the site where the search was sought.

The request was filed after the Justice Department submitted its own request in Federal Court to unseal certain warrant documents. In remarks announcing the request, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Justice Department is seeking the release of the “search warrant and property receipt” from the FBI search.

In the unsealing filing filed by CNN and other media with the court, they stressed “the historical significance of these events.”

“Before the events of this week, not since the Nixon administration exercised the power of the federal government to seize the records of a former president so publicly,” the media said in the filing.

The filing says “the overwhelming public interest in these particular documents outweighs any alleged interest in keeping them secret.”

“Media responders are certainly not seeking these recordings for improper purposes,” the media said. “On the contrary, public access to these documents will promote public understanding of this historically significant and unprecedented execution of a search warrant at the residence of a former president.”

State prison officials said Thursday a man was found dead in his cell at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater, along with methamphetamine and fentanyl — and an investigation continues into how he got the drugs.

Prison staff found Castle Rogers Ahlbeck, 30, unresponsive in the prison in Bayport around 11 a.m. Monday. They attempted to revive Ahlbeck, as did paramedics, who pronounced him dead.

Staff discovered substances and paraphernalia consistent with drug use in Ahlbeck’s cell and preliminary tests came back positive for both methamphetamine and fentanyl, Department of Corrections spokesman Nicholas Kimball said.

The Ramsey County medical examiner’s office will work to determine Ahlbeck’s cause and manner of death through an autopsy and toxicology.

“While we await the medical examiner’s findings, the Department of Corrections Office of Special Investigations, in collaboration with local law enforcement, is actively investigating how the drugs were introduced to the facility,” Kimball said.

Investigators are working “several leads” related to the source of the controlled substances, he added.


Ahlbeck was serving a sentence in connection with a November 2016 incident during which he shot and wounded a man following a drug deal at an East Bethel convenience store and then crashed into a police squad car during a 16-minute chase through Anoka County that reached speeds of up to 120 mph.

After crashing his vehicle into a squad car on westbound U.S. 10, authorities said, Ahlbeck ran away and was shot by Coon Rapids police officer Brian Platz, who had issued several orders to stop and at one point said he saw Ahlbeck holding a black object in his hand, authorities said.

Platz, who believed the object was a gun, shot Ahlbeck in his buttocks area after he turned toward the officer, who thought Ahlbeck was going to shoot, authorities said. When Ahlbeck was ordered to show his hands, the officer discovered that the black object he had seen was a cellphone.

The Ramsey County attorney’s office concluded in August 2017 that Platz was justified in the shooting.

Ahlbeck pleaded guilty to first-degree assault on a police officer and possession of a firearm by an ineligible person; three other charges were dismissed. In June 2018, he was sentenced to just over 13 years in prison.
