At the moment there are no negotiations between Barça and PSG, but that the situation could evolve “this week”. Barça released a comment on Sunday denying “any type” of agreement with the midfielder.

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – NOVEMBER 19: A general view during the first half of a game between the Cincinnati Bearcats and Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Rutgers Stadium on November 19, 2011 in New Brunswick, New Jersey. (Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty Images)Gibsonton (Fla.) East Bay defensive end Marques Ford was committed to Tennessee for six months until losing his scholarship on Jan. 21 due to a numbers crunch in the Vols’ class. Ford rebounded by committing to Rutgers two days later, and indicated after his official visit to RU this weekend that he planned to sign with the Scarlet Knights.Because Tennessee lost a commitment from four-star running back Kendall Bussey this afternoon, some Vols’ fans on Twitter broached the idea of trying to bring Ford back into the fold, but the four-star recruit dismissed any notion of that tonight.All this talk about me going back to Tennessee and im just like .. #CHOPNation pic.twitter.com/TW7S9VZabP— 5⃣6⃣ (@Marques_Ford) February 3, 2015Even with Bussey de-committing, it’s doubtful Tennessee would have tried to move back in on Ford. If they did, he indicated he wouldn’t be interested. Somehow, I think this one works out well for all parties: UT still has a highly-rated class under Butch Jones, Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood lands a talented four-star and Ford ends up in a place where he is clearly wanted.
TORONTO – A short seller is suing Home Capital Group (TSX:HCG) and three former executives for $4 million, alleging the alternative mortgage lender’s false representations scandal cost him millions when he closed his position early.Marc Cohodes filed a statement of claim Monday with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice saying he took a substantial short position in Home Capital’s shares in 2014 after determining the company was overvalued.Between March and June 2015, the claim says based on positive information provided in Home Capital’s financial reporting, Cohodes repurchased 91,800 of those shares at more than $40 each, resulting in a purchase cost of more than $3.6 million.Cohodes alleges Home Capital, former CEO Gerald Soloway and former CFOs Robert Blowes and Robert Morton knowingly misled investors in the company’s annual and quarterly results by misrepresenting risk management controls.Home Capital did not immediately return a request for comment. None of the allegations have been proven in court.In 2017, the lender was accused by regulators of misleading investors, which caused depositors to swiftly withdraw their money and leaving the company in crisis mode.Home Capital eventually agreed to pay $29.5 million to settle with the Ontario Securities Commission and class-action lawsuit matters related to the allegations.Soloway and Morton faced $1 million and $500,000 penalties respectively. Soloway was barred from acting as director or officer of a public company for four years, while Morton faces a two-year ban.Blowes is the only executive named in the suit who remains on the company’s board of directors.

The University of Illinois (9-16, 3-9 Big Ten) women’s basketball team handed No. 11 Ohio State (21-3, 8-3 Big Ten) its third loss of the season Thursday night. OSU junior guard Tayler Hill sank a shot with 16 seconds left to give the Buckeyes a one-point lead. But in the following possession, Illinois forward Alexis Burke hit a jump shot with no time left on the clock to defeat OSU, 66-65. The Buckeyes were down, 34-29, going into the half, but came out scoring and took a 56-46 lead with 7:48 left in the game. The Illini responded on a 10-0 run to knot the score at 56. After trading buckets, OSU senior guard Samantha Prahalis sank a three to give the Buckeyes the lead. In the next possession, the Illini missed a three before Prahalis hit a layup to give the Buckeyes a five-point cushion with 2:28 left. It wasn’t enough as the Illini scored on their next three shots to seal the victory. Hill lead OSU in scoring with her 20 points and five assists. She was followed by sophomore center Ashley Adams who tallied 18 points and eight rebounds. Prahalis had 15 points after her career high 34 points just three days prior. The Fighting Illini were lead by junior guard Adrienne Godbold and Burke, who had 15 and 16 points, respectively.

The Buckeyes return home Sunday against the No. 17 Purdue Boilermakers (19-5, 9-2). Sunday’s game might decide who holds the top spot in the Big Ten conference. Tip is at 5 p.m.

And the U.S. said Mexico is also taking “decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks.”Trump’s decision marked a change in tone from earlier Friday, when his spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters in Ireland before Trump took off: “Our position has not changed. The tariffs are going forward as of Monday.” Trump has often said unpredictability helps him negotiate.The 5% tax on all Mexican goods , which would increase every month up to 25% under Trump’s plan, would have had enormous economic implications for both countries. Americans bought $378 billion worth of Mexican imports last year, led by cars and auto parts. Many members of Trump’s Republican Party and business allies had urged him to reconsider — or at least postpone actually implementing the tariffs as talks continue — citing the potential harm to American consumers and manufactures.U.S. and Mexican officials met for more than 10 hours Friday during a third day of talks at the U.S. State Department trying to hash out a deal that would satisfy Trump’s demand that Mexico dramatically increase its efforts to crack down on migrants.The talks were said to be focused, in part, on attempting to reach a compromise on changes that would make it harder for migrants who pass through Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S., those monitoring the situation said. Mexico has opposed such a change but appeared open to considering a potential compromise that could include exceptions or waivers for different types of cases.The joint declaration, however makes no mention of the issue.Trump in recent months has embraced tariffs as a political tool he can use to force countries to comply with his demands — in this case on his signature issue of immigration. And he had appeared poised earlier Friday to invoke an emergency declaration that would allow him to put the tariffs into effect if that was his final decision, according to people monitoring the talks.“If negotiations continue to go well,” Trump “can turn that off at some point over the weekend,” Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, told reporters earlier in the day.Talks had gotten off to a shaky start Wednesday, as the U.S. once again pressed Mexico to step up enforcement on its southern border with Guatemala and to enter into a “safe third country agreement” overhauling its asylum system. But as talks progressed Thursday, U.S. officials began to grow more optimistic, with Short reporting Mexican “receptivity” to potential asylum changes.In Mexico, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador held out hope during his daily news conference that a deal could be reached before Monday’s deadline.Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, who said Thursday his country had agreed to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to its border with Guatemala, tweeted the news late Friday that there would be no “tariff application on Monday.”“Thanks to all the people who have supported us by realizing the greatness of Mexico,” he wrote.López Obrador also tweeted. “Thanks to the support of all Mexicans, the imposition of tariffs on Mexican products exported to the USA has been avoided,” he said, calling for a gathering to celebrate in Tijuana Saturday.Beyond Trump and several White House advisers, few in his administration had believed the tariffs were a good idea, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations. Those people had worried about the negative economic consequences for Americans and argued that tariffs — which would likely spark retaliatory taxes on U.S. exports — would also hurt the administration politically.Republicans in Congress had also warned the White House that they were ready to stand up to the president to try to block his tariffs, which they worried would spike costs to U.S. consumers, harm the economy and imperil a major pending U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal . The U.S. and Mexico have reached an agreement on tariffs, immigration
