Barcelona want Man City star Bernardo Silva and could offer Nelson Semedo in shock swap transfer

first_imgBARCELONA are interested in signing Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, according to reports.The Portuguese midfielder started just 23 Premier League matches for City this season as he struggled to rediscover the form that saw him named their player of the year in 2018-19.Manchester City Bernardo Silva is back in England after being holed up in PortugalCredit: Getty Images – GettyBarca hope to capitalise on Silva’s situation and could include right-back Nelson Semedo in a cash-plus-player swap deal.The Telegraph claims the La Liga giants hope to tempt the 25-year-old with a new challenge after three seasons at the Etihad.However, Barca’s limited post-coronavirus budget means they have prioritised swap deals this summer and hope to test City’s resolve by offering Semedo in part-exchange.Semedo, 26, has been on City’s radar for some time and is among a number of names the Blaugrana are looking to move on in the transfer window. Silva joined City from Monaco in 2017 for an initial £43.5million fee but would likely be valued much higher by City, even though the pandemic looks in the most part to have decimated transfer fees globally.Despite a downturn in form, the midfielder has still contributed eight goals and ten assists in 52 appearances this season.Asked recently about Silva, City boss Pep Guardiola admitted this season had been tough for the Portuguese due to the displays of Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez.“This season, maybe it was my fault or maybe Phil was more involved and Riyad maintained his level and the other players played good too,” Guardiola said.Silva was overlooked in favour of Foden for City’s Champions League last-16 win over Real Madrid on Friday night before coming on for the England under-21 international in the 67th minute.David Silva offered £52k a week, private jet and ‘elegant house’ by Lazio as Man City legend weighs up transfer Amazing Controlled Building Demolition You Probably Haven’t Seen Before 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!

Review: “The Bye Bye Man” (PG-13)

first_img Related Douglas Smith in “The Bye Bye Man”; Courtesy of STX Entertainment(NEW YORK) — Movies debuting in January are bad news. The month is Hollywood’s dumping ground for films that didn’t turn out as hoped — kind of like a boulevard of broken dreams. On the flip side, it’s also not a bad time to release a mediocre, low-budget horror film.Allow me to introduce you to The Bye Bye Man.It starts out with a bang — several bangs, actually. It’s 1969 and a middle-aged man in slacks, a buttoned-down shirt and tie pulls into the driveway of a suburban home, seemingly upset about something. When the woman who lives in the house answers the door, the man demands to know whether she told anybody “his name.” When she answer yes, he retreats to his car, grabs a rifle and starts shooting everybody.Cut to present day, where me meet college students Elliot (Douglas Smith), his girlfriend, Sasha (Cressida Bonas), and Elliot’s best friend, John (Lucien Laviscount). They’re taking the big step of renting a house off campus and, of course, the house is super creepy. Predictably, weird things start happening the night they move in.At first, Elliot’s skeptical of the paranormal overtones but after a housewarming party, he lets Sasha talk him into participating in a séance with her clairvoyant friend, Kim (Jenna Kanell).  That séance really sets the story in motion, inviting the title character into their lives by saying and thinking his name.The question is whether you, as an audience member, will find the story creepy and/or scary. The answer is yes — at least, at the beginning.As far as bogeymen go, the Bye Bye Man is decent. He wears a menacing cloak, is tall, has long fingers, gray skin and is accompanied by a demonic hound. He manipulates his victims through hallucinations, causing them to unknowingly murder their friends and family.  But the story soon loses steam. The scarier it’s supposed to be, the sillier it gets.   It’s as if director Stacy Title wasn’t sure whether a scene should plays as scary or funny.  But to her credit, The Bye Bye Man is creepy enough for most fans of the genre to enjoy.Three out of five stars.Copyright © 2016, ABC Radio.
