Lionel Messi has given the green light to Barcelona to complete a switch for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez‘ during the summer transfer window.Advertisement Loading… Inter are taking full advantage of the La Liga leader’s financial state, with Barca resorting to asking Lionel Messi’s view on the possibility of landing compatriot Lautaro Martinez.At the moment, Messi will certainly not leave Barca for a direct European rival as it doesn’t look likely that Lautaro Martinez would sign for the Blaugrana if Messi were to depart.Nevertheless, Inter Milan are not letting their resilience break and have made their demands very clear to Barcelona, who may be unable to meet them. With that said, the club has been forced into looking for alternatives as they must sign a striker during the summer. Barca have shown interest in Arsenal frontman Alexandre Lacazette, who proves to be a much cheaper option and Lionel Messi has approved their interest in the ex-Olympique Lyon superstar, according to Don Balon.Alexandre Lacazette does not seem too happy at the Emirates Stadium and now that he is at the peak of his abilities, the France international is more inclined towards playing in the Champions League on a regular basis and winning some trophies too.The Gunners don’t seem to be on track to match the player’s ambitions at this point in time.Read Also: Man City lead race to sign £97.5m-rated Inter Milan strikerMikel Arteta has included Alexandre Lacazette in his plans for the future, but it makes no sense holding onto a player who doesn’t want to stay.Right now, Arsenal value the player at only 40 million euros which comes to slightly more than one-third of what the Blaugrana may end up paying for Lautaro Martinez.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享
Police say a physical therapist killed his wife, three young children and dog in an affluent Florida suburb near Walt Disney World and then left their bodies there for days.Family members asked for a well-being check in late December, but according to the sheriff’s they didn’t notice anything suspicious.Officials found the bodies in January.The sheriff didn’t state a motive for the killings and also didn’t elaborate on what Todt was being investigated for by federal agents.Court records in Osceola County show the landlord of their five-bedroom home was seeking their eviction, saying they owed him more than $5,000. They were paying a monthly rent of more than $4,900.Officials say Anthony Todt drugged his wife and three kids after officials found that they died from overdoses of Benadryl and “unspecified violence.”Autopsy reports released Tuesday show that Todt’s wife, Megan, was stabbed twice in the stomach. His sons, 13-year-old Alex, and 11-year-old Tyler, had single stab wounds on their abdomen. His 4-year-old daughter, Zoe, had no evidence of trauma to her body, though homicidal violence was still listed as contributing to her cause of death, along with the Benadryl overdose.Todt has been indicted on four counts of first-degree murder in their deaths. He also faces a charge for animal cruelty for killing the family’s dog. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Melbourne: Former skipper Ricky Ponting believes defending champion Australia’s ability to bowl and play spin will define their success in the upcoming World Cup beginning May 30. “The thing that will define Australia’s success in the World Cup is, one, how well they bowl spin and, two, how well they play it,” Ponting was quoted as saying by the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.”That’s been their Achilles’ heel the last 12 or 18 months. With [Adam] Zampa bowling well now, Nathan Lyon’s obviously in the squad and Glenn Maxwell’s done a good job with the ball whenever he’s played.”Ponting said there were concerns about the middle-order’s ability to play spin a year ago but the return of David Warner and Steve Smith has strengthened the team.”And I think some of our middle order are probably slightly better players of spin now than they were 12 or 18 months ago,” said the 44-year-old, who won Australia the 1999 World Cup as a player, before guiding the team to successive titles in the next two editions as a captain.

Steve Smith still thinks he’s not probably 100 per cent fit just yet – but he’s not far away. And Warner’s been the dominant batsman in the IPL,” Ponting said.There are concerns that Smith and Warner will be targeted by the crowd during the World Cup with English cricketer Moeen Ali urging the spectators to treat them with respect.”Those two coming in, obviously they’re class players – they’ll have their fair share of issues to deal with from the crowds and stuff when they get over there,” he said.”But they’re big boys. They’ve been there and seen it all before. I’m sure they’ll be fine.” Australia will begin their campaign against Afghanistan on June 1 at Bristol.
