Manchester United close on Real Madrid and Argentina winger Angel di Maria

Manchester United are set to sign Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria in a deal worth over £48 million, Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague can exclusively reveal. At long last there is significant movement in the seemingly never ending, ‘Will he stay or will he go’ saga of Angel di Maria. It now looks certain that he will leave Real Madrid and become a Manchester United player. The final meetings will take place at the beginning of next week.United will pay more than 60m Euros for the player. More than 60. A great deal for Madrid.I can exclusively reveal that, as we speak, football agent Jorge Mendes is on a flight from Singapore – where he has been putting to bed the purchase of Valencia by Peter Lim – to Europe, with a view to sealing the sale of Di Maria to United.So advanced, in fact, are the negotiations that it has already been agreed that Di Maria will wear the number seven shirt, worn in the past by no lesser players than David Beckham, Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Bryan Robson.As soon as Di Maria knew of Manchester United’s interest he was very excited about the possibility of coming to Old Trafford.At first Paris Saint-Germain showed interest in singing him and said they were prepared to meet his wage demands of 8m Euros a year net but the deal offered by United was much more interesting to him.Firstly, United is a club with much more prestige throughout Europe, and secondly, it’s...  

Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music Player That Works In Sleep ...

AKA: The best idea ever We can't be the only ones who often turned on Super Smash Bros. Brawl just to open up its music player and fill our living rooms with that glorious soundtrack. If the thought of even more classic Nintendo tunes makes you weak at the knees, you may want to sit down for this one. Masahiro Sakurai yesterday revealed an ingenious new feature for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, detailing exactly how its built-in music player will work. Posting to the Director's Room on Miiverse, he showed off the design and explained how the soundtrack will feature remixes both old and new. You can control everything from the bottom screen, even switching to character voices too, but a real highlight is the 'Play in Sleep Mode' feature. Using this, songs will continue to play even when your 3DS is closed, transforming it into a walkman-style music player that allows you to listen on the move. The use of the 'L' and 'R' shoulder buttons to skip between tracks is particularly welcome, and should streamline the entire experience nicely when combined with playlists of your favourites. On top of that, a selection of music tracks are now available on the Smash Bros. website for your audio delight, providing a hint at what's to come and an impressive list of the musicians who worked on the 3DS version. Plenty for music lovers to sink their teeth into, then, so be sure to let us know if this has swayed your opinion on the portable version, or sealed the deal for you even more....  

3 Reasons Why You Should Still Buy Stocks

Source: http://401kcalculator.org Stock market indices are still trading close to all-time highs. The S&P 500 stands just below 2,000, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index is just over 16,650. Both indices have put in respectable returns over the past 12 months: The S&P 500 gained roughly 21%; the DJIA, 13%. These remarkable runs have been going on for the past five years, as the U.S. economy has bounced back from its depressed state in early 2009. The S&P has returned around 190% since the economy bottomed out in March 2009, and the Dow has gained approximately 160%. With a stock market rally under way for more than five years and equity indices close to their respective all-time highs, should you still consider buying stocks, or is the party over for investors? Long-term investors should buy equitiesOf course, there's no easy answer, and investors differ in terms of risk tolerance, investment horizon, and asset allocation needs. But if you're a long-term investors who has a longer than a one-year time horizon, I would advocate for an investment in stocks, even though investors will have to pay a premium on their stocks compared with just a year ago. Let's look at three reasons why, from an economic point of view. 1. Interest rates are still lowThough the stock market has rebounded strongly since 2009, interest rates haven't. The Federal Reserve has met the financial crisis with an unprecedented strategy of printing money while keeping in...

Hamburg captain Rafael van der Vaart played through the pain barrier to help his side earn a point away to Köln HSV summer signing Valon Behrami (r., against Yuya Osako) says "you don't have any time to think" in the Bundesliga Marcell Jansen rued a couple of missed chances for HSV but on the whole was happy with the visitors' display Cologne - There was plenty of endeavour from both sides at the RheinEnergieStadion on Saturday, but 1. FC Köln and Hamburger SV were forced to settle for a goalless draw in their Matchday 1 encounter. bundesliga.com is on hand to round up the players' post-match thoughts... Hamburger SV Rafael van der Vaart: It was a fair result in the end. Unfortunately we weren't able to make the most of our chances but overall I think our performance was good and it'll give us confidence ahead of our next matches. In the first half I had some trouble with my thigh but I was able to grit my teeth and play on. Valon Behrami: The Bundesliga is nothing like Serie A. The game is played at a much faster pace and you have to keep running all game. This is certainly the fasted league I've played in. You don't have any time to think. We were well organised at the back and didn't allow them many chances. We need to continue like that and then we can play out from the back with greater security to start our attacks. Marcell Jansen: We started the match well, primarily because we were solid at the back and were able to go forward with a greater sense of conf...
