Barcelona urging Sterling to accept cut on Man City wages

Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling must agree to a dramatic pay-cut if he's to join Barcelona in January. Sport says Sterling has welcomed interest from Barca, which are keen to take the England international on-loan over the New Year. Sterling is currently on €18m-a-year and would expect to join Barca with the two clubs splitting his wages 50-50. However, if Barca were to take on his €9m demands, it would leave no room in the wage budget to make further additions in January. As such, Barca are pushing Sterling to accept a cut on his wages to join them. It's been suggested the drop in earnings would be covered by bonuses included in a proposed permanent deal at season end.

Couple who have never met in person get married over Zoom

A couple who have never met in person got married over Zoom. The couple - Ayse, 26, and Darrin, 24 - started a transatlantic relationship during the pandemic.

Settlement talks between Texans’ Deshaun Watson and the 22 women suing him for sexual misconduct ‘break down’ as the plaintiffs refuse nondisclosure agreements

Settlement talks between Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and the 22 women suing him for sexual misconduct 'break down' has broken down because his attorneys insisted the plaintiffs sign nondisclosure agreements. 'In what was submitted to us, there were nondisclosure agreements and many of the women pushed back on those,' the plaintiffs' attorney, Tony Buzbee, told Houston's Fox 26. Although Buzbee changed the language in the nondisclosure proposal 'substantially,' he said Watson's stipulation was ultimately a 'deal breaker.' 'There were still some women who said, ''I'm never going to sign that,''' said Buzbee, who has since confirmed his quotes to DailyMail.com. In March and April, Watson was accused of forcing women to perform oral sex on him, disrobing and forcibl...

New SIM regulation banning under 18s from buying sim is to protect minors – NCC

Spain to Launch Trial of Four-day Working Week with no Pay Reduction

Spain is set to become the first country to experiment with a 32-hour workweek, which would allow workers to spend less time at the office without any change in pay. With 8 hours of work put in per work day (9 - 5), this means 4 work days per week, rather than the standard 5 work days per week. The test run was proposed by Más País, a left-wing party that has argued that longer hours don’t necessarily lead to higher productivity. Más País is now in talks with the government to figure out the exact details of the arrangement. According to Spanish media outlets, the pilot program is intended to reduce employers’ risk by having the government make up the difference in salary when workers switch to a four-day schedule. "Spain will be the first country to undertake a trial of...

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has kicked against UEFA’s proposed changes to the Champions League, claiming they do not respect the “sporting merit” of the competition.

The changes would increase the number of matches from 125 to 225. “The model that is proposed for the modern Champions League, I don’t like it at all,” Wenger, who is now FIFA’s head of global development, told BeIN Sports. “The clubs always want more money. To get more money, they want more guaranteed games. The fans want more games of significance. “Modern football has to find a compromise between what the clubs and fans want.” Europe’s top leagues, including th...
