Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena admits it would hurt to see Neymar join fierce rivals Real Madrid, amidst reports Zinedine Zidane’s side are looking to sign the Paris Saint-Germain star.Goal recently revealed that Los Blancos are preparing to make a bid in the region of €100 million for Neymar and could even send Luka Modric to Paris as part of a deal.While no official bid has been made, PSG director Leonardo confirmed talks over a potential transfer of their Brazilian attacker are advancing as Neymar looks to secure a move away from the Ligue 1 champions.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Exactly where the former Barcelona star ends up remains to be seen with current Blaugrana midfielder Alena conceding it would be difficult to see Neymar move to Madrid. “It would hurt if Neymar went to our eternal rival, especially after playing [for Barcelona],” Alena told reporters on Saturday after Barca defeated Napoli 4-0 in the inaugural La Liga-Serie A Cup.”We hope that he comes back. He’s a spectacular player, one of the best in the world.”If he comes back it would be an amazing signing, it would be an incredible way to close the transfer window. He would make us all better.”Alena isn’t the only Barca player hoping to see Neymar return to Camp Nou this season with Gerard Pique also recently declaring he’d be delighted to see the Brazilian back. The veteran defender however stressed that the current PSG player must seize some iniative to make a possible transfer happen. “I think Neymar’s a great player that knows the dressing room, the city and the club,” Pique said. “There are people that weren’t happy with how he left, but there are a lot of people who were very happy with his performances.”If the opportunity comes up, you know the relationship I have with him. I would be delighted if he came back, but he’s a PSG player. A personal opinion doesn’t change anything.”It has to be Neymar who speaks out. Of course we speak with him, but it’s not right to reveal private conversations. If he wants to speak out or give his opinion, he has to come out and say it.”Barcelona kick off their latest La Liga season on Friday against Athletic Bilbao and appear likely be missing Lionel Messi for the occasion.
Google Pixel 3 Lite, Pixel 3 XL Lite: Specs, prices and all we know so farThe Pixel 3 Lite series is expected to offer the trademark Pixel user experience with watered-down specifications. Leaks have so far given us a hint of what to expect from the cheaper Pixel phones.advertisement Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiDecember 29, 2018UPDATED: December 31, 2018 08:19 IST Picture courtesy: 91MobilesHIGHLIGHTSThe Pixel 3 Lite will be the compact variant of the Pixel 3 Lite series.The Pixel 3 XL Lite will essentially be a bigger version of the Pixel 3, with the design and ports being the same.Unlike the Pixel 3 XL, the Lite version will not sport the huge notch.If we have to name a smartphone that we were eagerly looking out for the whole year, it has to be the Google Pixel 3. The flagship offering from Google had got many excited with its controversial notch design on the XL version. Since the Pixel 3 was made official, it ruled impressed the critics as well as its fans with stellar camera performance. However, what wasn’t stellar was the price, starting at Rs 73,000 for the base variant. Google clearly had to do something and rumours eventually pointed out toward the intentions of a cheaper Pixel 3.Speculated to be called the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, the affordable version of the Pixel 3 has drawn a substantial amount of interest on the Internet. Certain photos have leaked in the wild while several others have come with high-resolution 3D renders of the phone with all the specifications listed. Therefore, we sum up all that the world of leaks and rumours knows about the Pixel 3 Lite.Pixel 3 Lite specifications– The Pixel 3 Lite will be the compact variant of the Pixel 3 Lite series. The handset is expected to sport a 5.5-inch display with thinner bezels all around. It will carry the older 18:9 aspect ratio, which means this won’t be a bezel-less beauty like some of its rivals.–The Pixel 3 Lite will retain the design cues of the Pixel 3. The rear panel will host that trademark Pixel two-tone finish — glossy on top one-fourth and a matte finish for the rest. Leaks also show the retainment of the quirky coloured power buttons on the Pixel 3 Lite.advertisement– Similar to its elder brother, the Pixel 3 Lite will also retain a single rear camera at back. A capacitive fingerprint sensor will also be resting alongside the camera in the typical centre position. Rumours also suggest the presence of a plastic rear to help keep the costs low. — So far, it’s known that the Pixel 3 Lite will sport the 3.5mm headphone jack — a feature that’s missing from the flagship Pixel phones since 2017. A USB-C port will be present as well.– At the front, the leaks show a single rear camera lens. This means Google could be ditching the wide angle sensor from the Pixel 3 to cut costs.– As for specifications, it is speculated that the Pixel 3 will have at least 4GB RAM and 32GB storage as standard on the base version. Some suggest that Google will opt for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC for the Pixel 3 Lite while others suggest the use of a Snapdragon 710 SoC.– The handset will ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box. It is expected that the Lite series phones will also enjoy the privilege of getting the latest software updates before anyone else.– A 2915mAh battery is expected to keep the phone alive. This is smaller by today’s standards, but we expect Google to optimise the phone to sip power efficiently and make it last at least an entire day.Pixel 3 XL Lite specifications– The Pixel 3 XL Lite will essentially be a bigger version of the Pixel 3, with the design and ports being the same.– Unlike the Pixel 3 XL, the Lite version will not sport the huge notch. Instead, it will carry over the 18:9 display with uniform bezels on top and bottom. — The display is expected to measure 6.0-inches at the most. This could make it a substantially large phone, considering the thick bezels all around.– The Pixel 3 Lite will also sport a single rear camera for the front and rear. It’s not known whether Google’s powerful Visual Core chip will make it to this one to offer the exceptional photography that the Pixel 3 offers.– While 4GB RAM is expected to remain the standard, rumours hint towards the use of a Snapdragon 710 SoC. This chip can accelerate AI features and could be beneficial for Google to introduce some of its AI magic to the Lite series phones.Pixel 3 XL Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite availability and pricesSince the leaks have started raining at a faster pace, we expect Google to unveil the Pixel 3 Lite series at January’s CES 2019 or at the MWC 2019. The Pixel 3 Lite phones could be made ready for sale in the international markets by the spring and India could possibly witness the devices in the summer of 2019.As for the prices, it’s expected that Google will use the Pixel 3 Lite series to tackle the likes of OnePlus 6T and LG G7 ThinQ. We also speculate that the Pixel 3 Lite will fend for Google against the older iPhone models, such as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, that Apple sells at affordable price points. Therefore, the Pixel 3 Lite could starts around Rs 40,000 for the base variant.advertisementGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Peter Handscomb (28) and Pat Cummins (25) were at the crease when the players went off the field.Kuldeep Yadav starred with the ball for India on Day 3 as he picked up 3 wickets for 72 runs on a flat surface which started to turn after the first session while Ravindra Jadeja had two wickets to show for his efforts. Mohammed Shami also got a wicket.Australia had made a promising start after resuming on their overnight score of 24 with Usman Khawaja and Marcus Harris adding 72 runs for the first wicket.But the good start turned from bad to worse for the hosts as Khawaja fell to Kuldeep in the first session and then a mini collapse after lunch gave India the upper hand.Opener Harris fell soon after lunch but at least enjoyed the prestige of posting the highest score for an Australian in a four-test series in which Indian batsmen have pillaged five centuries on their way to a 2-1 lead.advertisementHere’s the wicket of Marcus Harris shortly after the lunch break.Stream via Kayo HERE: https://t.co/CaiEbSjKbT #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/kPHTAcjkU3cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 5, 2019The left-hander showed plenty of intent in his 79 but just when it appeared he could be heading for a maiden Test ton, he calamitously played the ball onto his own stumps off the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja.Spinner Jadeja also accounted for Marsh, who must surely have exhausted his supply of Test recalls after departing for eight, having left his bat hanging to gift Ajinkya Rahane the simplest of catches at first slip.Rahane had to work considerably harder for the catch at short midwicket that dismissed Marnus Labuschagne for 38, diving low to his left to grab the ball with both hands off the bowling of paceman Shami.A ripper from Rahane for another breakthrough on day three.#AUSvIND | @bet365_aus pic.twitter.com/AloLI08vB9cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 5, 2019Kuldeep made Travis Head his second victim of the day shortly before the break, the batsman charging down the track to take on the left-arm wrist spinner, only to send the ball straight back to him for the catch.The chinaman returned after the break and picked up the wicket of Tim Paine in the first over of the final session as the Australia captain played all around a flighted delivery on off-stump.The surface that India’s batsmen had plundered almost at will for two days was still offering little movement for the bowlers and the Australian lineup will be cursing themselves for some soft dismissals after a solid start to the day.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Next India Today Web Desk LondonJune 11, 2019UPDATED: June 12, 2019 00:41 IST ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan is under observation after the India opener was hit on the thumb on Sunday (Rueters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSShikhar Dhawan suffered a thumb injury vs Australia on SundayDhawan, who is being observed by the BCCI, is likely to miss India’s next few matchesThe BCCI on Tuesday said it hasn’t named any replacement for DhawanFormer India captain and batting great Sunil Gavaskar has said Shikhar Dhawan’s injury which could force him to sit out 2 or more India matches will not hurt the team’s morale. Gavaskar added that he believes Virat Kohli’s men are prepared for all eventualities at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.Sunil Gavaskar said it will be “fantastic” to see Shikhar Dhawan back in the squad towards the business end of the tournament if he manages to recover from the thumb injury he sustained during India’s win over Australia in London on Sunday.”I don’t think so (will not impact the spirit of the team). I think this team is prepared for any eventuality in terms of injuries. That’s the hardest part of being an opening batsman. The ball will seam and bounce a lot more when it’s hard and new,” Gavaskar told India Today from London on Tuesday.”However, KL Rahul has come good in the last couple of games. He will be replacing Shikhar Dhawan for hopefully only the next couple of games. If it’s a fracture and if Dhawan can recover in the next 3 weeks hopefully for the game against England [on June 30], then that will be fantastic,” Gavaskar added.Shikhar Dhawan has suffered a minor fracture and is currently under the observation of the BCCI medical team. The apex body of India cricket said it has not named any replacement as on Tuesday.Dhawan was hit on the thumb as early as the 9th over of the Indian innings vs Australia on Sunday but he carried on and went on to make a match-winning 117.advertisementGavaskar pointed out that Dhawan has been one of India’s star performers in ICC tournaments and thus the team management will not be looking to make a hasty decision, considering a player can’t be brought back once his replacement is announced for the World Cup.Temperament makes Dhawan a special player in ICC tournaments: Gavaskar”If you replace Shikhar Dhawan, then he can’t be brought back even if he gets fit. That’s what the team management will be looking to assess. I also think the team management will be having a world with Dhawan. The man would himself want to play the World Cup. It comes only once every four years. He wouldn’t want to miss out on this opportunity. He has got a hundred already and is looking good.”With Shikhar Dhawan, there is no such thing as form. He could be batting ordinary way. Just before the Australia game started, people were talking about ‘how is he going to handle Starc and how is he going to do this that’. But he showed us.”Shikhar has an amazing temperament. At the end of the day, temperament is what separates the men from the boys.”When you playing for your country, you should be able to bear a little bit of pain. You have got to sacrifice a bit when playing for your country at this stage.”Having beaten South Africa and Australia to get their World Cup campaign off to a strong start, India will next face New Zealand in Nottingham on Thursday before the big-ticket clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on Sunday in Manchester.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan’s pain threshold is incredible, says Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | Rishabh Pant ideal replacement for injured Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane not a bad option too: Harbhajan SinghAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Former England captains Geoffrey Boycott and Andrew Strauss receive knighthoodsAndrew Strauss and Geoffrey Boycott were the only sporting names in a list largely consisting of political figures, a nod to former UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s lifelong love of cricket.advertisement Next Associated Press LondonSeptember 10, 2019UPDATED: September 10, 2019 12:59 IST Andrew Strauss and Geoffrey Boycott both played over 100 Tests for England (Getty Images)HIGHLIGHTSAndrew Strauss led England to to two Ashes series wins and scored over 11,000 international runsBoycott’s 108 Tests from 1964-82 brought him 8,114 runs and 1082 runs from 36 ODIsBoycott, who led in 4 Tests, is the first man to score 8,000 Test runs for EnglandFormer England captains Andrew Strauss and Geoffrey Boycott have been given knighthoods in former Prime Minister Theresa May’s resignation honors list.The two opening batsmen were the only sporting names in a list largely consisting of political figures, a nod to May’s lifelong love of cricket and her admiration for Boycott in particular.Strauss played 100 Tests for England from 2004-12, scoring more than 7,000 runs at an average of 40.91, and captaining the team to two Ashes series wins. Less than three years after retiring, he became the most powerful official in the English game as managing director. He was the unseen administrative architect behind England’s first World Cup triumph in July.”I cannot think of a man more worthy of the honour,” former England coach Andy Flower said.”As a player he was tough and resilient, as a captain he balanced a firm hand and moral compass with a compassion and empathy that meant he was loved and respected in the dressing room by his players and the staff.”Boycott’s 108 Tests from 1964-82 brought him 8,114 runs at 47.72 – the first man to reach 8,000 in the longest format for England. He captained England in four Tests in 1978, deputizing for the injured Mike Brearley.At a news conference last November, May was asked in the form of a cricketing analogy about the number of ministerial resignations, or “wickets,” over her handling of Brexit.”One of my cricket heroes was always Geoffrey Boycott, and what do you know about Geoffrey Boycott?” she asked. “He stuck to it, and he got the runs in the end.”advertisementBoycott was forced to apologize in 2017 after joking that he would have to “black up” to be considered for a knighthood, pointing out the honor had been bestowed on West Indies cricketers including Sir Viv Richards, Sir Garfield Sobers, and Sir Curtly Ambrose.He was also given a three-month suspended prison sentence in 1998 after being convicted of assault against former girlfriend Margaret Moore. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2002 but made a full recovery and returned to TV commentating.”Our heartfelt congratulations go to Sir Geoffrey Boycott – honoured for his long career and passionate dedication to the sport.”In May 2015, Andrew was invited to join the ECB as director, England cricket, to shape the future strategy of the men’s international teams – in part to enable an environment that would see England as live contenders for the World Cup in 2019, an aim they so thrillingly delivered on just a few short months ago.”It was with the same class and courage that he and his family set up the Ruth Strauss Foundation to raise money and awareness just a few months after losing Ruth to a rare form of cancer.”Aside from his achievements on and off the pitch, Andrew is widely regarded as an exceptional person in our game and this wonderful accolade will be celebrated around the cricketing world,” ECB chief executive Tom Harrison said.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Here’s Everything You Need to Know (Plus 6 Beers to Try) The 2020 Living Vehicle Is a Swanky Luxury Apartment on Wheels Chill Out in the Best Summer T-Shirts for Men Certain trends live and die on the catwalk, others like white never go out of style particularly for spring. There is, after all, no better cleanser for the wardrobe after a brutal winter than basic white. So how are designers making the message seem less redundant? Statement whites. An idea percolating for several seasons now, these boldly designed white pieces were, until recently, executed predominantly in the wintertime as an antidote to the season’s traditionally somber and monochromatic palettes. This season you needn’t look far to see the color white not only across every clothing category but also interpreted with deliberate flourishes. To be sure, there’s a lot that harkens back to old-school street styling here, but the streamlined shapes and elegant fabrications give these pieces a wholly contemporary feel. Here, our favorite standouts, from the wedding-appropriate white linen suit to must-have low-top sneaker, that work every which way—separately or even altogether—for a singularly slick modern look.Main image.

Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat Sip On the Original Stormtrooper Beer While You Wait for the Next Star Wars Movie Well, 2018 is shaping up to be a pretty awesome year on the water. First, we told you about a flying hydro-jetpack. Then, there was the flying Jet Ski and the electric surfboard. Now, it appears we’ll need to make room for yet another aqua toy in The Manual boathouse.The Jet Capsule Compact Yacht is designed for the sort of well-heeled hotshot who just won’t stand for owning anything called a “dinghy.” For those times when you need to go ashore in style — when you need to roll up to the marina in a Star Trek-worthy vessel — this one-of-a-kind capsule has you covered. It’s ideally designed for short jaunts, but there’s no reason you couldn’t head offshore with 11 of your closest friends for an all-day capsule party.On the inside, the high-powered pod is designed to transport passengers in plush comfort via a variety of seating configurations. Limousine, Taxi, and Private floor plans feature bench seating, stadium seating, and private jet-style seating respectively. The Classic version provides for two captain’s chairs, a wide bench, and a bathroom — plenty of room for your wife and mistress(es) to spread out comfortably.The full suite of on-board electronics is exactly as expected for a millionaire’s escape pod: a state-of-the-art nav system, a Simrad VHF radio and chartplotter, and electro-hydraulic steering. Analog instrumentation provides a solid backup system and a dash of old-world elegance. A Bose surround sound audio system also ensures your passengers will never get bored.The Jet Capsule provides a wealth of futuristic gadgetry to protect and insulate you from your surroundings. The 70-percent carbon fiber, V-shaped shell is not only lightweight, but also helps the high-tech HamiltonJet propulsion system push the craft across the water at up to 40 mph (35 knots). Photochromic film on the panoramic windows tints automatically based on ambient light levels to shield passengers’ eyes from sunlight reflecting off the water.Based on the ‘90s-era website and other quirks (including the sinister-looking boat pilot in the media photos), you’d hardly think the company is peddling a high-end product. However, the base Jet Capsule starts at USD $229,000, and various configurations and additional options quickly push the price north.

Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat 1 of 4 Chevrolet Debuts the Off-Roading ZR2 Bison to Tackle Trails and Competitors Close Chevrolet Next Editors’ Recommendations Chevrolet The Colorado ZR2 Bison will also be available with an optional snorkel through AEV, while owners can spec either diesel or gasoline engines from Chevrolet itself. You’ll also be able to select from either Crew or Extended cab design and will be available to customers starting early next year. That being said, Chevrolet hasn’t released the Bison’s pricing just yet, but given the Colorado ZR2’s starting price of $42,500, it won’t likely be cheaper for a more capable machine. “We’ve been following Colorado since its introduction, and the ZR2 really captured our attention,” says Dave Harriton, founder, and president of AEV. “As this is the first Chevrolet vehicle we’ve given the AEV treatment to, we wanted to do something special with the industry’s first use of hot-stamped Boron steel. We also expect that Colorado drivers will love the added ruggedness of our front and rear bumpers on ZR2 Bison.”Who’s ready to hit the trails? This All-Black Cabin is Like a Pair of Binoculars Taking in the Canadian Wilderness Chevrolet The Opus OP15′ Is a Tricked-Out, Off-Road-Ready Travel Trailer Previous The Bison’s new kit includes five separate skid plates which now encase the engine’s oil pan, fuel tank, transfer case, and both front and rear differentials. These plates are stamped out of Boron steel for extra impact resistance. At both front and rear, there are twin steel bumpers that are able to be outfitted with winches, and come standard with fog lights and recovery tow hooks.No off-roader, however, would be complete without a new set of ready-to-rock wheels and tires. To accommodate the 17-inch aluminum wheels shod with 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires, all four corners also see widened fender flares as well. What hasn’t changed is the ZR2’s standard and absolutely ridiculous race-bred Multimatic DSSV shocks which allow for the Colorado to take whatever beating you can dole out. Chevrolet For as long as we can remember, it’s been a battle between Ford and Jeep for who reigns supreme in the off-road segment. Ford’s Raptor and Jeep’s Wrangler have never seen real competition as they’ve both become beyond capable in their respective segment. Now, however, Chevrolet wants to play and has introduced a higher-spec Colorado ZR2 dubbed trhe Bison. Built atop Chevy’s already impressive Colorado ZR2 off-roader, the Bison takes the next step in the truck’s off-road capability. The truck is a result of a collaboration between Chevy and American Expedition Vehicles, or AEV, which has gifted the ZR2 Bison with nearly everything you’d want a true “go anywhere” off-roader to have.
