SimeoneCoach wants a 9. He was already asked by a striker in summer, in fact, and Rodrigo (Valencia) was about to arrive. And later Diego Costa was injured and desire became a necessity: Morata has been left alone in front. And since then names have been coming out, but Cholo is only convinced by Cavani. The Uruguayan would boost the workforce and it is not clear if other raisers would. However, he is aware that for Cavani to arrive, a player should leave the dressing room … Atlético wants Cavani, and better today than tomorrow. He wants it for months, or perhaps it is better said than for years. It’s Simeone’s favorite, that he does not see clearly the other options that the club has put on the table, but the PSG does not seem willing to open the doors just like that because it would weaken for the decisive stretch of the season. And this other condition, the salary limit that hinders the red and white in this winter market. The club has half a month left to hire a 9 and in this multi-band operation there are several proper names that have a lot to say …Miguel Angel Gil MarínThe CEO of Atlético tries to satisfy as he has always done Simeone’s requests and has launched for the signing of Cavani, advancing since summer, when the player will be free, in January, at the request of the technicians, who after the injury of Costa feel that the position is lame. Gil marin He traveled to Paris this week for an ECA meeting and has taken the opportunity to meet with PSG leaders to bring positions, although he has not sent optimistic news to Madrid. Will continue to squeeze while the market is open. Nasser Al KhelaïfiWhen Gil Marín calls, on the other side is the president of the PSG. Al Khelaïfi does not want to part with Cavani and there is no reason that convinces him. Although now the headline is Icardi, leaving the Uruguayan would mean weakening the workforce. He is also a historical footballer for the entity. Everything plays against Atleti. Y the economic issue is not something that can worry the PSG and its owners. For everything, it represents the most complicated obstacle for the arrival of Cavani to the Metropolitan.LeonardoParallel to the previous conversations, the PSG sports director has also been contacted by Andrea Berta, his counterpart in Atlético. From his point of view, Cavani is essential for the PSG and I would only understand his departure if another striker came in return of level. That same was transmitted to the player in the meeting they held before Christmas, when the forward transferred the possibility of leaving in January. CavaniThe object of desire of Atlético … that PSG does not have left over. Your contract with the Parisian club expires on June 30, so the question is whether he is facing his last months on the team or his last days. Cavani is seduced by the idea of joining Atlético de Simeone and he let those in the team know, but he doesn’t want to look bad with anyone. It is his seventh season in Paris and he is the top historical scorer of the club, whose hobby idolizes him. He doesn’t plan to dirty his career with an exit in bad ways, although it will do its part.OblakAt first It has nothing to do directly with the Cavani operation. But with the relations between PSG and Atlético. Slovenian has been wanted by the French champion for years, but the rojiblanco club has worked to maintain it. If the PSG opens the door in some way to the Uruguayan, he wants to be taken into account in the future. And he will put the goalkeeper’s name on the table.
Chancellor, CJ appointmentsWhen it comes to the appointment of a Chancellor of the Judiciary and a Chief Justice, President David Granger’s recent statement that “the ball is in Jagdeo’s court” is not sitting well with the parliamentary Opposition.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoDuring a press conference on Tuesday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo drew reference to the letter he wrote to Granger since February 2018, when he rejected the President’s nominees. Jagdeo reminded that in his letter, he had committed to continuous engagement with the President.“He then went to the media and said we will not allow one man to hold this up and I had to subsequently point out that he himself, as Opposition Leader, held it up for nearly six years. And I had one month. And he said (he) was now seeking legal advice,” Jagdeo recalled.President David Granger“He has not said a word to the country about what the legal advice recommended, he has not gotten back to me and he now woke up and says, because I think he forgot everything in between that the ball is in my court. I believe he still thinks he’s waiting on me for a reply. This is serious!”Asked whether he would seek to re-engage the President, Jagdeo made it clear that as the President, Granger would have to re-initiate the discourse. He noted that he was waiting on the President to get back to him on the mode of future discourse.“He is the President of Guyana. He has to initiate. I have already given my position. I said I am prepared to engage you further. He has to get back to me on the mode of engagement. That is my position,” Granger said.Nothing to discussA few days ago, President David Granger had said there is nothing left to discuss on the matter. The Head of State had said he had looked forward to a timely settlement of the appointment, which many deem critical to the effective functioning of the Judiciary, but that didn’t happen.“The ball is in the court of the Leader of the Opposition. I made my proposals, he simply rejected them. He has not made any counter-proposals, so there is nothing to discuss,” President Granger said.President Granger reminded that the decision is solely dependent on consultations with Jagdeo.Asked whether he has received legal advice on the way forward in regard to these appointments, Granger said, “I know what needs to be done. I am well advised. But I have to wait on the Leader of the Opposition to respond to my proposal.”Justice Kenneth Benjamin was nominated for the position of Chancellor of the Judiciary, while Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards, the current acting Chancellor, has been nominated for the position of Chief Justice.Concerns have been raised by the Bar Association in Belize about Benjamin’s failure, up to recently, to clear a backlog of cases by writing his decisions.Jagdeo, in a letter addressed to the President, had said that after having duly considered the nominations of Justice Benjamin and Justice Cummings-Edwards under Article 127 (2) of the Constitution, he is unable to offer his agreement for their appointments.However, the Opposition Leader has since indicated his willingness to further engage the President on substantive appointments to the top judicial positions.To this end, Minister of State Joseph Harmon subsequently said Government will be going ahead with “meaningful consultations” between the two sides, as provided for in the Constitution.
