Chelsea FC Leading Race To Sign Madrid Star Gareth Bale

Chelsea FC are set to have a go at Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale this summer, according to the Daily Mail. The Welshman has said that he wishes to remain with Los Blancos for at least one more season, but the Blues are reportedly willing to test his resolve. Bale — who, with a brace, led his team to a 3-0 victory over Israel in a Euro 2016 qualifier on Saturday — was made a scapegoat for Madrid’s 2-1 defeat to Barcelona in last weekend’s El Clasico.

Mandatory Credit: Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports So far, one fan has been suspended for being part of a group which attacked the player’s car after the game, per Sky Sports. This just underlines the torrid time that the player is having, just a little over a year after Madrid made him the world’s most expensive player. It is said that the forward is having a hard time accepting the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s main man. He has been under constant scrutiny since his arrival, but he has responded to his critics (by not responding to them), claiming that he has nothing to prove. “I don’t need to answer the critics. I know, and everyone around me knows, what I can do.” “There are ups and downs in football, you have t...  

Hummels considering options at Dortmund

Reported Manchester United target Mats Hummels would be open to leaving Borussia Dortmund, the skipper has revealed. Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels would be open to a move abroad amid reported interested from Manchester United. The Germany international has long been mooted as a potential arrival at Old Trafford, having endured a difficult season with Dortmund. Jurgen Klopp's side has spent much of the last few months in the lower reaches of the Bundesliga and appears unlikely to qualify for next term's UEFA Champions League. Hummels revealed on Sunday that he would consider leaving Germany, but maintained no decision had been made on his future. "I am openly saying that I think about my future and am considering what I can imagine for it right now," he told Kicker. "I'm not a fan of those who ostensibly speak of staying but have secretly completed the discussion. Everyone knows how much I like it in Dortmund, but I also want us to have a strong team and a powerful approach." "I often think that I would definitely like to move abroad one day," he added. "Then there are also days when I say that I do not need that. Basically, I believe that a foreign country will be good both for football as well as personal development." ...  

De Jong unwilling to commit to AC Milan amid uncertainty

AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong is evaluating his future and demands clarity and a clear plan from the club, if the Rossoneri wish for him to renew his expiring contract. The 30-year-old Dutch international has a contract running until June 30 this year and has not been his usual self this season, with injuries also playing a role in his form regression. “I haven’t decided if I am going to renew my contract with Milan and do not know when I will decide,” he told Dutch portal nu.nl. “The decision could come at the end of April or at the end of the season. I want to understand Milan’s plans in order to return to the greatness of the past years. “I do not read Italian newspapers or watch Italian TV channels, all of them say what they want. I am focused only on playing well and finishing the season well. “It is early to say where I will be playing next season. Perhaps at Milan, Ajex or another club. There are several options. I will take my time to make the best possible decision. “The crisis of Milan? It is a combination of several factors.” Manchester United seem to be the club most keen on securing the services of the experienced Dutchman, with former Dutch national team coach Louis van Gaal playing an important role in negotiations. ...

Angelina Jolie tells kids 'different is good'

Kevin Winter/Getty Images Entertainment Kevin Winter/Getty Images Entertainment Angelina Jolie took the stage Saturday at Nickelodeon's 28th Annual Kids' Choice Awards and delivered a message of hope to anyone who's ever felt out of place. In her first public appearance since revealing that she underwent a second preventative surgery to lower her risk of cancer, Jolie attended the show with her children, Shiloh and Zahara. She hugged them before she went to the stage to accept the favorite villain award for her role as Maleficent in the live-action reimagining of "Sleeping Beauty.""When I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different. And I felt out of place -- too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in," the 39-year-old actor and humanitarian said. "And, then one day I realized something, something that I hope you all realize: Different is good," she said, prompting enthusiastic screams from the young crowd."And, as your villain, I would also say cause a little trouble -- it's good for you."Jolie's career has been full of unconventional twists and turns, from her breakthrough role as a drug-addicted model in "Gia" to her current role as an actor, filmmaker and special envoy of the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Refugees.Her personal life also has made front page headlines over the years, from her decision to adopt orphans from developing countries to her openness with her health.Jolie, 39, wrote Tuesday in a New York Times...

Will Intel Corporation's Curie Conquer the Internet of Things and Wearables ...

Intel (NASDAQ: INTC  ) , which was crushed by ARM Holdings' (NASDAQ: ARMH  ) partners in the mobile market over the past few years, doesn't plan on losing the wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) markets in the same way. That's why it established a new IoT division last year, which houses its smallest SoCs (systems on chips). One of the IoT division's most fascinating products is Curie, a button-sized, ultra-low power module with a six-axis sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. Curie has just 80KB of onboard SRAM and 384KB of flash storage, and lacks an application processor, wireless connectivity, or Wi-Fi. The only way to sync with Curie is via Bluetooth. Intel's Curie. Source: Intel. Curie can't power full-featured smartwatches like Google's Android Wear devices, but it could be installed in less demanding devices like fitness bands, medical monitors, and security tokens. Therefore, let's take a closer look at Curie's potential to expand Intel's footprint in the IoT and wearables markets. Curie's market potentialCurie doesn't directly compete against any of ARM's smartphone or tablet SoCs. Instead, it targets ARM's Cortex-M embedded microcontrollers, which accounted for 24% of its cumulative licenses at the end of 2014. In the fourth quarter, ARM's new Cortex-M licenses topped all other processor licenses, thanks to rising demand for microcontrollers, smart sensors, and low-power wireless communication chips. Five of those licenses w...  

Diego Simeone's New Atletico Madrid Contract Is a Big Boost for Fernando Torres

Andres Kudacki/Associated Press Fernando Torres walked out onto the turf at the Vicente Calderon Stadium. Wearing an Atletico Madrid shirt, he strode to the middle underneath sunny skies on a day of expectation in the Spanish capital. But Torres was on his own. None of his team-mates walked out with him. There weren't any opponents waiting. No referees to be seen. No back-room staff. No analysts. No ballboys. No game. Yet 45,000 people stood in the stands anyway—more than the number that is seen for any matchday at Chelsea or Tottenham and the same amount that populates Liverpool's Anfield each weekend. By any measure, it was a colossal crowd. A buoyant one. Kind of like those seen for Real Madrid's Galacticos at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. And it had gathered to welcome a low-cost loan signing who'd endured four wretched years prior to his arrival. Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno/Getty Images In the middle of the Calderon, Torres waved to crowd, played a game of keepy-uppy, posed for photos, kicked balls into the stands, did a lap of honour, embraced his children, smiled a lot.  Reyes or "Kings" Day had come early on the banks of the Manzanares. Soaking it up was Torres, who might have become the most celebrated loan signing in football's history. And he was there because of Diego Simeone. It was the Argentinian who'd really pushed for the club to pursue Torres. A former team-mate turned Atletico "god" had been instrumental in bringing back "The Kid," At...
