Louis van Gaal is weighing up a move for Daley Sinkgraven 1 Dutch starlet Daley Sinkgraven has revealed he has had no contact from Manchester United after reports linking him with a move to Old Trafford.Sinkgraven has started the season in fine form for his current club Heerenveen, scoring two goals in 10 league appearances.The 19-year-old’s performances have attracted attention from several clubs across Europe, with Manchester United reportedly at the front of the queue.But despite reports emerging over the weekend that the Red Devils were lining up a January swoop for the winger, Sinkgraven admits he, nor his agent, have been contacted.“I’ve also read the reports. I can’t do that much about it because it’s new to me,” Sinkgraven told Algemeen Dagblad.“My agent has said nothing about it. The only thing that he told me is if I do well then the clubs will naturally come.”

The IRS has extended, from February 15 to February 28, 2018, the effective period for 2017 Form W-4s that employees furnish to their employer to claim exemption from withholding.

Rafael Nadal has been sensational with 65 wins against a single defeat in ParisIn what promises to be a blockbuster Friday, three of the biggest stars in tennis will be in action to secure their finals berth for the coveted French Open final.On one hand, world number 2 Novak Djokovic will lock horns with No. 18 Ernests Gulbis – the only man from Latvia to enter a Grand Slam tournament, while the other semifinal promises a cracker of a game with world number 1 and king of clay Rafael Nadal taking on Britain’s best bet Andy Murray.Nadal has been sensational with 64 wins against a single defeat at Roland Garros. His only loss at the tournament came against Robin Soderling in the 4th round in 2009.Murray will be playing in the French Open semifinals for the second time; he lost to Nadal in 2011. In all, Nadal owns a 14-5 edge in their head-to-head matches.Five things to look for in the men’s semifinals Friday at the French Open:NADAL’S STREAKHeading into his semifinal against Andy Murray, No. 1-ranked Rafael Nadal’s French Open record is a hard-to-believe 64-1, a run that includes eight titles – more than any man has won at any of the Grand Slam tournaments – and a 33-match winning streak. The lone loss came to Robin Soderling in the fourth round in 2009. Nadal is trying to become the first man to win five consecutive French Opens.NADAL vs MURRAYNadal or Murray has participated in each of the last 17 Grand Slam finals, a stretch that dates to the 2010 Australian Open. That will become 18 major finals in a row at this French Open, of course. But in none of those instances did Nadal and Murray face each other for the title. Eight of their 19 previous career matchups came at majors, with Nadal holding a 6-2 edge – once in the fourth round, once in a quarterfinal, and six in semifinals. Overall, Nadal leads 14-5. This meeting makes them the only two men in the Open era, which began in 1968, to have met at least twice at each Grand Slam.advertisementMURRAY ON CLAYEveryone knows just how good Nadal is on red clay. But Murray, whose major titles came on grass at Wimbledon and on hard courts at the U.S. Open, is proving rather adept at handling the slow surface, too. This is his second French Open semifinal – he made it that far in 2011, before losing to Nadal, naturally – and he made clear after his five-set victory over Gael Monfils in the quarterfinals that he is not satisfied. “It’s definitely a big achievement, but that’s not what I came here to do. Yeah, my goals are different and my expectations are different to a lot of people,” Murray said. “I expect a lot of myself. I put a lot of pressure on myself to perform well at these events, and thankfully I have done OK so far. Still hopefully a long way to go in the tournament.”DJOKOVIC vs GULBISNo. 2 Novak Djokovic meets No. 18 Ernests Gulbis, the only man from Latvia to enter a Grand Slam tournament, in Friday’s opening semifinal. Djokovic holds a 4-1 lead in head-to-head matches, including a straight-set win in the 2008 French Open quarterfinals, the only other time Gulbis made it that far at a major. They go way back: Both attended a tennis academy in Munich in their early teens.GLUTEN-FREEDjokovic, a six-time major champion, needs a French Open title to complete a career Grand Slam. He’s talked often – and even written a book – about how changes to his eating habits, including dispensing with gluten, helped him overcome problems with fitness and allergies early in his career. And Gulbis? He was asked this week why he needed a half-dozen years to get back to the latter stages of a major after doing so initially as a teenager. “What took me so long? I think I was eating wrong. I had the wrong diet,” he said with a laugh. “Everybody was talking about this gluten-free diet. My diet is full-on gluten. I like a lot of ketchup, a lot of unhealthy stuff, so there is a balance which I found in the last couple of years.”(With AP inputs)
