Transfer Latest! Man United Ready To Splash £60million To Sign Willian

Transfer Latest! Man United Ready To Splash £60million To Sign Willian Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho is ready to sanction a £60million bid, in order to be reunited with Chelsea midfielder. The Daily Mail reports that Mourinho remains an admirer of Willian’s style, having beat Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur to the Brazilian’s signature in 2013, when he was at Stamford Bridge. Since the Portuguese’s departure to Old Trafford, Willian has struggled to hold down a regular place at Chelsea. Last season, the 29-year-old started only 20 matches in the Premier League. He also hid Antonio Conte in an Instagram photo celebrating the Blues’ FA Cup victory, leading to speculation that he is eager to move on this summer.

2018 World Cup: Chelsea reacts to Nigeria’s 2-0 loss to Croatia, slam Moses, Mikel

2018 World Cup: Chelsea reacts to Nigeria’s 2-0 loss to Croatia, slam Moses, Mikel Chelsea has criticised Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel’s performance in Nigeria’s 2-0 loss to Croatia in their Group D opening game on Saturday. Chelsea questioned Nigeria’s lackluster display, while noting that their former player, Mikel failed to threaten the Croatia in his No 10 role. There have been calls that Mikel should be deployed in the same position he used to play for Chelsea when Nigeria tackle Iceland on Friday. Chelsea wrote on the official website, ”Victor Moses became the first Chelsea player to suffer defeat at Russia 2018 when a lacklustre display from Nigeria resulted in defeat by Croatia. ”Moses started on the left of the Nigeria line-up but soon moved into an attacking position on the right and took most set-pieces, but he and his team-mates, who included John Mikel Obi in the no. 10 position, rarely threatened.” Moses was on for the duration of the encounter while another Chelsea player, Kenneth Omeruo was on the bench.

Declare source of your campaign funds – PDP tells Buhari

Declare source of your campaign funds – PDP tells Buhari The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to disclose how his campaign funds were raised for the 2015 election The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the call while speaking with newsmen over the weekend at Ogidi in Ijumu LGA of Kogi State. Ologbondiyan said disclosure of details will prove to Nigerians Buhari’s sincerity in the ongoing fight against corruption. He said PDP believed that the president was shielding alleged looters around him while he was on the other hand busy going after opposition forces in his fight against corruption. Ologbondiyan added “Until the president is sincere enough to make a public disclosure of how his election funds in 2014 were raised and who contributed what, he lacks the moral grounds in corruption fight as he who comes to equity must come with clean hands.”

MKO Abiola: How prison break plan failed

MKO Abiola: How prison break plan failed Personal Assistant to the late Bashorun MKO Abiola, Olu Akerele, has revealed how a plan to forcefully bring the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential elections out of jail failed. Akerele made the revelation on The Platform, a programme on TVC News. According to him, they came up with the plan after it became clear that the late General Sani Abacha, had no plans to free Abiola. But Abiola was reluctant about the scheme as he was concerned about the safety of his family. Akerele said: “At a stage when nothing was moving on again, the Supreme Court was not sitting, it’s like the man (Abiola) had been abandoned there. “Then, some of his friends approached me, both in the military, retired and then civilians. They sent someone to me to meet them somewhere. Getting there, I saw an American diplomat that I knew had been coming to court. So, they now raised the issue of spiriting Abiola out of that place. And they thought it could be done. “But, we need the support of then Big (Uncle) Sam, Abiola’s friends in America. So, we parleyed over it and it was decided that I should get in touch with his PA (Personal Assistant) in the United States (U.S.). There’s one Randy Echols. He was my opposite number in Washington. They now suggested that the man should get in touch with Abiola’s friends at the Capitol so they would work out the thing. So, they took me to a secret house (in Abuja) and gave me a secure phone. Surprisingly, I was on to Randy.” At that time, Abiola’s personal aide had just been released from jail because he was caught relaying messages for him in prison. Akerele said: “We got Randy and the idea was that Randy should link with his friends over there – that’s Abiola’s friends and then with the military. There’s one ship mooring somewhere in the ocean. So, a small plane would come and land in Abuja. It’s a question of taking Abiola from that jail. Four, five hours, he’s into the plane. Then, the plane flies out. So, that was the idea. But when the thing was discussed with the late MKO through the window as usual, he said, ‘it’s a dangerous thing to do ooo’. And that if his friends or my friends insisted, we should leave out his children and members of his family out of it because the Abacha he knew would not hesitate to wipe out his family and the families of those people guarding him. “But we thought it was fool-proof. We thought we could do it. Because they were not so popular, except those who were making money from them. So, we thought Randy would do the right thing. Then, just for him to ensure he was talking to the right person – me. I had met him twice when he came with MKO to Abuja when things were going okay. ‘I now asked him to confirm my identity with Doyin, our managing director (of Concord Press) and Alhaji Akinteye, that’s the PA to MKO in his office.” Akerele said Randy Echols mistakenly spilled out the plan by calling Abiola’s children instead. “This thing I’m going to say would embarrass some people, but they just have to take it like that. Instead of talking to Doyin or Akinteye, Randy now called Wuraola Abiola, that is Kola’s youngest sibling, to ask about me. He asked: ‘Who is this Olu?’ Then Wura now called Agbo, the MD of RCN, asking: ‘who is this Olu?’ Then Agbo now called Kola.” The Abiola aide said Kola called him, asking: “Olu, what’s going on? They said there is one Olu making enquiries about some things?” But Akerele feigned ignorance of the matter and denied involvement, responding: “Oh, is that so? I don’t know anything about it.”
