That said, he has reasonable technique, is not bad in the air and has some pace.‘Guardiola will feel that, if City are to challenge Liverpool for the league title next season, he will need to sign a striker who can push Agüero for his place.‘Agüero is 32 and I don’t think his body shape is conducive to continuing strongly into his mid-30s. He is powerful and muscular but does not have a flexible, supple body, as shown by his recent run of niggling injuries.‘Aubameyang has a good fitness record so it may well be that City offer big money for him if he is available, despite his relatively advanced age of 31.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Aubameyang is yet to sign a new deal at Arsenal (Picture: Getty Images)Former Chelsea and Republic of Ireland striker Tony Cascarino says Manchester City should sign Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a replacement for Gabriel Jesus.The Gabon international’s contract at the Emirates is due to expire in 2021 and he is yet to commit his future to the north London club.Aubameyang is reportedly demanding a new three-year deal worth up to £250,000 a week amid strong interest from the likes of Inter Milan, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.However, if no contract agreement can be settled, Cascarino believes the 31-year-old would be the ideal candidate to challenge Sergio Aguero for the No.9 role at City.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTCascarino told The Times: ‘Gabriel Jesus has been at Manchester City for 3½ years and has never knocked on the door hard enough for Pep Guardiola to think, ‘Right, he’s in the starting line-up for the next ten games’.‘I suspect the manager will aim to bring in another striker this summer, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang top of his list if he does not sign a new contract at Arsenal.

Townsville’s north booming

first_imgConstruction is starting on the North Shore Display village with the sod being turned for the “Innovation House”.TOWNSVILLE’S northern growth corridor continues to boom with construction starting on North Shore’s $8.5 million 17-home display village.The slab was poured this week on Stockland’s Innovation House, which uses sustainable and innovative product suppliers. The house will become the centrepiece of the display village.North Shore project director Andrew ­Astorquia said the display village was one of several job-generating projects under way at North Shore as confidence in Townsville continues to grow. It follows a land release that triggered the building of 20 new homes while construction is under way at the new $40 million state primary school.“It looks like a scene from the television show The Block at the moment,” Mr Astorquia said.“On one street, we have around 100 trades working and from there you can see both the new school and display village coming out of the ground. Right now, there is more than $60 million of construction activity happening in this one precinct and we will be making some more announcements on some other great projects shortly.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020Builder Darren Finlay of Finlay Homes with North Shore porject director Andrew Astorquia at the site of the new Innovation House.Renowned builder Darren Finlay is building the Innovation House, which will serve as North Shore’s Sales and Information Centre.Mr Finlay said the house would be an off grid, 9.5-star rated home with GOLD Level Accessibility and include voice-activated automation. “We went to our suppliers to ask them to be part of the project and showcase their most sustainable and advanced products in the house,” he said.“The response has been overwhelming with more than 30 coming on board with incredible products that will become the future of building and living.“We are using concrete that recycles fly ash – the waste generated by coal mining – a solar and battery system that takes the home completely off the grid and a new generation thermosphere airconditioning system that not only uses less energy, it eliminates mould.”Mr Astorquia said the project would showcase how futuristic and sustainable living was available now by bringing the best product suppliers together in one house.last_img read more

EIOPA industry levy scrapped from EU regulatory review

first_imgThe agreement also maintains key elements of the ESAs’ current governance structure, with the Council stating that it “ensures a key role for the national competent authorities”. EU pension funds will not be directly tapped for money for the bloc’s pension supervisor under changes to the European financial supervision system agreed by EU lawmakers.The European Commission had proposed a new funding system for the European supervisory authorities (ESAs), including industry contributions to help fund the three regulators: the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the European Securities and Markets Authority and the European Banking Authority.Instead, the agreement reached by the EU Council and the European Parliament this month “preserves the existing system of contributions”, which currently come partly from the EU budget and partly from national regulators, the Council said in a statement.Member states and observers can make voluntary contributions. Pension funds will not be asked to pay a levy to fund EIOPAThe Commission had wanted to replace ESAs’ management boards with independent executive boards with full-time staff. Under the current governance model, member states have a seat on the board of supervisors – the main decision-making body – while six members of the board of supervisors sit on the management board.PensionsEurope, the Brussels-based European pension fund association, had expressed concern that the Commission’s proposal would have sidelined member states’ influence within EIOPA.Matthies Verstegen, senior policy adviser at the association, told IPE: “Pension funds are still very much embedded in national social and labour law, so it’s good that national supervisors continue to have a strong role in EIOPA’s governance structure.“We also welcome the fact that EIOPA’s role and powers in overseeing pension funds will broadly remain the same.”The two other ESAs have been assigned new responsibilities and powers.Under the agreement, the European Securities and Markets Authority will be given direct supervision powers over third country “critical benchmark administrators” and certain data reporting service providers.The European Banking Authority, meanwhile, has been granted powers to play a stronger role in relation to money laundering and terrorist financing.The agreement between the Council and the European Parliament confirms several aspects of the position the Council adopted last month. Barring technical finalisation of the legal text and its expected formal adoption by both EU bodies, it wraps up a lawmaking process that was kickstarted by the Commission two years ago.last_img read more

Cricket News IPL 2019 auction: No Indian player in Rs 2-crore club, Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch opt out

first_imgNew Delhi: The upcoming IPL 2019 auction, which will be held in Jaipur on December 18 and 19, will see over 1000 players trying to fill up 70 spots. Unlike previous auctions, this event will be a low-key affair, considering that the 2019 World Cup will be played immediately after the tournament ends. The low-key build-up for the auction is also the main reason why there are not many players in the elite base price of Rs 2-crore. According to a report on ESPNCricinfo, no Indian players are in the Rs 2-crore base price range while only nine players, all of them overseas are in the Rs 2-crore club.Out of the nine players, the franchisees might be tempted to get England all-rounder Sam Curran in the side. Curran was one of the stand-out players in the recent series against India which England won 4-1. His timely contributions with the bat lower down the order, combined with his wicket-taking ability, make him a valuable asset. Apart from Curran, the other notable name in the Rs 2-crore list is Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga. Malinga, who has played for Mumbai Indians, was not retained by the side in the last couple of seasons but last year, he was the bowling mentor of the side.Read More |IPL 2019 auction: Northeast states, Puducherry players registerOthers in the list include Corey Anderson, Colin Ingram, Shaun Marsh, Angelo Mathews, Brendon McCullum, D’Arcy Short and Chris Woakes.No Indian in elite listHowever, no Indian is in the Rs 2-crore list. Jaydev Unadkat, who became the highest Indian to be bid in the auction last year with Rs 11.4 crore, has the highest base price of Rs 1.5-crore. The other big names in the list like Yuvraj Singh and Mohammed Shami are priced at Rs.1-crore.Read More |Gautam Gambhir dismisses differences with MS DhoniWriddhiman Saha and Axar Patel are the others in the Rs.1 crore list while Ishant Sharma is priced at Rs.75 lakhs.No big Australian namesCricket Australia announced that most of the players will miss close to two-three weeks in the Indian Premier League as they had to prepare for the World Cup. This has resulted in names like Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch opting out of the auction. Maxwell was part of the Delhi Daredevils side, now renamed as Delhi Capitals while Finch was part of the Kings XI Punjab side.With many teams preparing for the World Cup, the IPL itself faces a scheduling headache. With the General Elections in India to be held anytime from April to May, the chances are that like in 2009 and 2014, the IPL might be shifted overseas.
