Chelsea demand £80m N’Golo Kante transfer fee

first_img Conte is also keen on fellow Chelsea stars Olivier Giroud and Emerson Palmieri from his former side – although faces a stand-off with Inter to get his transfer requests approved. The Italian outfit also need to raise funds in order to fund a move for Kante, even before trying to match his £150,000-a-week wages. Roberto Gagliardini, Matias Vecino, Marcelo Brozovic and even Eriksen could all be shipped out to finance the transfer. Kante faces a battle for game time in Lampard’s midfield three with Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount often playing together last term. read also:FA Cup final: N’Golo Kante, Willian hand Chelsea fitness boost Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s return to fitness, Ross Barkley’s form, the emergence of Billy Gilmour and the return of Ethan Ampadu mean the Blues boss is well stocked in midfield, especially with young British players. And the sale of Kante could help cover the costs of Kai Havertz’s transfer from Bayer Leverkusen with the German on the brink of a £90m move. That will take the Blues’ summer spending beyond £200m while Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Xavier Mbuyamba joined for free.

The Frenchman, 29, is facing an uncertain future with Frank Lampard still seemingly undecided whether or not to keep him in his plans. And according to the Express, the Blues have decided they would accept any offers of £80m should they come in. Inter Milan look the most likely side to land Kante in this transfer window. Former Blues boss Antonio Conte brought Kante from Leicester to Stamford Bridge in 2016. And it is thought the Italian would be keen on a reunion at the San Siro. Conte has already snapped up Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Christian Eriksen, Ashley Young and Victor Moses from the Premier League since joining Inter a year ago. But landing the World Cup and two-time Premier League winner would be a major coup for the Europa League finalists, who are also eyeing Lionel Messi.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more

On why the Phobians did not go for an established name: “I have handled Hearts [before], years back. And, [at the time] we had from the onset had some experiences with so-called highly respected coaches and they all let us down.“I went in for coach Kobina who was a police officer and he was the man who really put the team on the map internationally so I don’t believe in this certificate thing.”The last time Hearts of Oak won the Ghana Premier League was in 2009.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Parents Better Equipped to Raise Their Children

first_img Parents in several communities across the island are now better equipped to discipline their children without using coercive practices, often characterised by hostility and derision.This was facilitated under a parenting education programme implemented by the Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) III through collaboration with the National Parenting Support Commission (NPSC).A total of 250 parents and community parent trainers (CPTs) graduated from the programme during a ceremony held at the Spanish Court Hotel on Wednesday, October 10.Minister of National Security, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, in his address at the ceremony, hailed the CSJP III and the NPSC for the initiative, which he said seeks to bring order and a positive framework to “one of the most critical occupations in society”.He urged parents to desist from using corporal punishment as a disciplinary tool and noted that he is happy that the CSJP’s programme aims to support parents in identifying alternative practices.“We are human; we get frustrated. You can get angry, and sometimes you expect the child to understand, but they too are feeling your frustration, and it’s a matter of how you respond. You are to engage them emotionally, to share any moment of frustration in a way that they know that you care about them, that you love them and your objective is to [uplift them],” he pointed out.Dr. Chang argued that changing the style of parenting to one that is focused on care, love and understanding will help to reduce violence in the society. “Give the children a sense of self-worth and self-respect,” he added.CSJP Programme Manager, Simeon Robinson, in his remarks urged the graduates to be ambassadors for effective parenting within their communities.He further challenged them to bring at least one other parent from their communities into the programme.The parenting education programme, conducted from November 2017 to June 2018, aimed to hone the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to raise children with the aptitude to resist violent and antisocial behaviours.The first phase started with the training of 112 CPTs, who provided one-on-one in-home intensive coaching for the parents engaged.Phase two of the initiative saw 50 of the CPTs assigned to 166 families. After some 4,140 home visits, 138 parents completed the programme.
