Man United make fresh approach for this talented 26yo midfielder: report

Sports
Manchester United have ramped up their interest in Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri ahead of the summer transfer window, according to reports. Jose Mourinho has expressed a desire to add reinforcements in midfield ahead of Michael Carrick‘s retirement and Marouane Fellaini‘s likely departure. And Seri, having come close to joining Barcelona last summer, has emerged as one of Man United’s main targets ahead of the transfer window. According to the Mirror‘s David McDonnell, Paul Pogba’s recent lapse in form has prompted United to reestablish their interest in the Ivorian midfielder. Of course, the notion that Pogba is now on his way out after a handful of poor performances is the kind of hyperbolic drivel you’d expect from the Mirror. Any news story that

England will attempt to pip Scotland to Manchester United’s young midfielder Scott McTominay, suggest ESPN FC. The 21-year-old began to break through at Man United at the back end of last season and has earned the trust of manager Jose Mourinho with a number of composed and solid performances since becoming a first team matchday squad regular in this campaign. He’s now made 16 appearances for the club’s first team, with nine of those starts, after starting in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg against Sevilla, a 0-0 draw against the La Liga side. Mourinho has urged new Scotland manager Alex McLeish to give McTominay his first senior call-up. Born in England, but with Scottish heritage, McTominay has previously indicated a preference to Scotland, but has represented neither cou

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Wrap-Front Top

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This top from Banana Republic is $68, but they’re always having sales, so keep an eye out — and I’ve seen blouses like this at much higher price points (for example). We’re featuring it in the “wide stripe,” but there’s also a “shadow stripe” (white on black) as well as basic black and navy. It’s getting great reviews, and it’s machine washable. The top comes in regular (XXS–XXL) and petite (XXS–L) sizes, although the petite is currently only available in the black-on-white stripe. Wrap-Front Top Lands’ End and Eileen Fisher have plus-size options.

Report suggests £12m West Ham ace favours a move to Spain with La Liga giants keeping tabs - originally posted on Sportslens.com According to reports from The Telegraph, La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are keeping tabs on West Ham prospect Reece Oxford, and are considering making a potential move for him this summer. The England Under 20 international is a highly rated young defender and Atletico feel that he could be a long term prospect at the Madrid club. The 19-year-old is currently on his second spell of loan at Borussia Monchengladbach. He struggled early on to nail down a regular starting role, but is now making good progress. The Bundesliga club offered £8 million to sign Oxford permanently, but their bid was rejected by West Ham with the club valuing the playe

State Department human rights report will put women in their place, Trump administration style

Politics
“Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights,” Hillary Clinton said in Beijing in 1995, but Donald Trump and Rex Tillerson’s State Department isn’t so sure. Discussion of women’s reproductive rights and discrimination is being cut from an annual State Department report on global human rights after an unnamed senior official demanded the changes: The directive calls for stripping passages that describe societal views on family planning, including how much access women have to contraceptives and abortion. A broader section that chronicles racial, ethnic and sexual discrimination has also been ordered pared down, the current and former officials said. [...] In a statement to POLITICO, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that the way the department “pr

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Pinstripe Pencil Skirt

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This pinstriped pencil skirt from White House Black Market looks like a great basic for work. I like the sort of flip at the hem — it’s not too much and it makes it fun. Note that the lack of a hem means you don’t have to worry about the skirt seeming a lot shorter when you sit down. I can’t find the jacket that’s shown in one of the pictures, but if you’re on the hunt, check with a store near you, because they may have it. The skirt also comes in straight sizes and petite sizes and is the same price for each, $89. WHBM offers free shipping and free returns on plus sizes — this could be something they’re doing because their plus-size line is relative...
