FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has affirmed his intention to tie Kylian Mbappe and Neymar down to the club on a long-term basis. Will Kylian Mbappe and Neymar both be fully fit While both attackers have been linked with moves away in recent months, Mbappe to Liverpool and Real Madrid, and Neymar with a switch to either Los Blancos or Barcelona, the Ligue 1 champions are not planning for life without their star duo. Nevertheless, if they fail to negotiate contract extensions with the pair, whose deals are up in 2022, they may be forced into difficult decisions next summer and that is not something that Leonardo wishes to consider. “There’s nothing that tells us they’ll leave this summer,” Leonardo told Journal du Dimanche . “They both still have two years left on their contracts and we’re thinking about what we can do next with them. We want to move forward. “Mbappe is the future of PSG. This is what everyone wants. The ideal scenario would be for him to extend his contract. He’s already among the best five players in the word.

AMES, IA – JANUARY 7: A Nike logo is visible on a basketball before the match-up between the Iowa State Cyclones and the Baylor Bears on January 7, 2014 at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa. (Photo by Matthew Holst/Getty Images)It’s a good time to be a college basketball fan in Iowa. The Iowa Hawkeyes are No. 3 in the AP Poll and No. 4 in the Coaches’ Poll, and Iowa State may be back on the rise after a big home win on Monday night against Kansas. After the game, governor Terry Branstad made his way to the Cyclones locker room. There, he was convinced to hit “the dab,” which is still a dance that people are doing.I’m a bit disappointed that they didn’t get him to “run off on da plug twice,” but its probably for the best.
Explore further © 2018 AFP Drug giant Takeda on Tuesday said it would buy Irish pharmaceuticals firm Shire in a deal worth $62.5 billion, the biggest foreign takeover ever by a Japanese firm. The deal, which will create one of the world’s top 10 drug companies, caps a lengthy courtship by Takeda of its larger rival as it seeks to expand overseas.Shire last month said its board would recommend the £46 billion bid “subject to satisfactory resolution of the other terms of the possible offer”.And on Tuesday, Takeda announced the boards of the two companies “have reached agreement on the terms of a recommended offer pursuant to which” the Japanese firm will buy Shire.The announcement follows a string of lower offers rejected by Shire over the past month.Analysts have said the buyout would be a smart move by Takeda as it looks to diversify, and could pay off in the long-term, but it has also raised concerns that the Japanese firm could be overextending itself financially.In a separate statement, it said it would fund the deal with a bridge loan facility of nearly $31 billion.The buyout is the latest in a flurry of merger and acquisition activity in the pharmaceutical industry as traditional players see profits eroded by competition from generic medicines.Japanese firms in particular are facing pressure domestically as the government tries to cut prices of many branded drugs and increase the focus on cheaper generics to curb health spending as the population ages rapidly.Takeda, led by Frenchman Christophe Weber, has been actively looking overseas for acquisitions.In 2011 it took over Swiss rival Nycomed for 9.6 billion euros ($13.6 billion at the time).Analysts have described Shire as an attractive target for Takeda, with a portfolio of existing treatments in fields where the barriers to entry are high and profits large.In particular, Shire will give Takeda access to research and development in fields the Japanese firm has long sought, including digestive systems, mental illness and rare diseases.Takeda said on Tuesday that the buyout would create a global “biopharmaceutical leader” headquartered in Japan “with an attractive geographic footprint and the scale to drive future development”.The acquisition will “strengthen Takeda’s core therapeutic areas, bringing together complementary positions in gastroenterology and neuroscience, and provide leading positions in rare diseases and plasma-derived therapies”, Takeda added.The deal is by far the largest acquisition of a foreign firm by a Japanese company, dwarfing SoftBank Group’s 2016 acquisition of Britain’s ARM Holdings in a $24.3 billion deal.It falls well short however of breaking international records.Shares in Takeda closed up 3.99 percent at 4,638 yen just before the announcement, which had been widely expected, while in London trade Shire was up 4.77 percent at £40.40.The acquisition is expected to become effective in the first half of 2019, Takeda said.Analyst Mike van Dulken, head of research at Accendo Markets, cautioned that there were still “many moving parts,” with issues including uncertainty about whether shareholders and regulators would approve the deal.
