Gameiro: last chance to recover part of the investment

first_imgThe striker is still an appetizing player on the market. Last January he had offers from French clubs although he did not want to leave and decided to end the season at Valencia. Once this season ends, the situation will be different. If a club offers you more than a year of contract and Valencia agrees, the Frenchman could pack and leave Valencia. Otherwise, he would fulfill his contract since, at the moment, Valencia has not told him anything about a possible renewal. Because, Valencia must move tab in the next market, which, among other things, does not know when it will be, due to the change of date that the 2019-20 season will have. Valencia still must amortize next year 5.3 million of the signing of the French, so at least you must take out this amount to avoid incurring losses. In the sports field, Gameiro is amortized. It was one of the protagonists in the Copa del Rey that Valencia lifted last year and its performance, in general terms, has been good. Valencia paid Atlético 16 million euros in the summer of 2018, for the transfer of Kevin Gameiro. The French He will be 33 in just one month and ends his contract in June 2021. Because, Valencia has in the next transfer window the last chance to recover part of that investment. If it is not transferred, it will fulfill its contract and will leave free a few months later. The case is similar, in terms of contract termination and the footballer’s age, to that of Garay, who is currently seriously injured and with a contract that ends in two and a half months.last_img read more

Watersports at Guantanamo to tapping Russian mafia: Secret NSA files published

first_imgIn-house newsletters from the clandestine National Security Agency have been released by an online news site – part of the mountain of documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.The Intercept, whose founding editors were the first to publish documents leaked by Snowden, released the first batch of nine years’ worth of the newsletters, which offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the NSA’s work.Russian crime bossAn article in the May 2003 newsletter describes how NSA spent “many months” obtaining the phone number of a Russian organised crime figure so his calls could be intercepted.The US State Department asked NSA for information on the boss of the Tambov crime network in Russia – a figure known only as “Mr Kumarin” –  and whether he had any ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The man later was convicted of fraud and money laundering and sentenced to 14 years behind bars.Water sports at GuantanamoIn a Dec 2003 newsletter, an NSA liaison officer recounts a temporary duty assignment at Guantanamo Bay. It was serious business, but in their off hours, NSA liaisons at scenic Guantanamo Bay could visit the “Tiki Bar,” or enjoy water sports, such as sailing and snorkeling.”Learn how to operate a boat in a weekend,” the liaison wrote. “Become a certified open-water scuba diver within weeks. … The local dive shop has all the gear and tips to ensure a perfect outing.”Prisoner renditionIn a more taxing assignment, the newsletter reports on a rendition where six Algerians, linked to a plan to bomb the US Embassy in Sarajevo, were moved from Bosnia to Guantanamo in early 2002. The US rendition program involved secretly sending foreign captives to other countries that have more lax practices for the humane treatment of detainees.advertisementA Bosnian judge ordered the Algerians released for lack of evidence, but the US persuaded the Bosnian government to turn them over to US custody.One of the Algerians, Lakhdar Boumediene, went on to file a lawsuit that led to a landmark decision in June 2008 that Guantnamo detainees had the right to challenge their detention in federal court.The Iraq filesOther tales came from NSA’s work in Iraq. NSA staffers worked to research the locations for weapons of mass destruction material, although claims about Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s alleged WMDs proved to be false.NSA also provided timely intelligence support, including a “summary of contacts” that helped efforts to capture a top Baathist official in May 2003. Aziz Sajih Al-Numan, accused of torture and murder in Iraq, was the king of diamonds in the US Central Command’s deck of cards of most-wanted Iraqis. The newsletter boasted: “Al-Numan was caught within 25 hours after the Army contacted NSA to request support.”last_img read more
