Los Blancos are currently in negotiations with Jose Mourinho’s side over a double deal for Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon, with the former on loan and the latter on a €40m transfer. Alli was initially linked with a switch to the Spanish capital as part of the deal to bring Bale back to North London, however, Real Madrid are not considering any type of offer for the England star. One of the primary reasons for Real Madrid declining to enter negotiations for Alli, are his salary demands countering against their continued contributions to Bale’s contract.Advertisementcenter_img Read Also: Messi, Ronaldo missing from Champions League awards shortlist Rumours are starkly contradictory over how much of Bale’s salary Real Madrid will pay after his move back to the Premier League, with estimates ranging from 50% to zero.

USC to provide scholarships to Syrian students

first_imgAnthony Bailey, vice president for strategic and global initiatives, and Elizabeth A. Graddy, vice provost of academic and faculty affairs, issued a memorandum Friday advocating for USC’s further involvement in the support of Syrian scholars and students.The Provost accepted the Graduate Student Government Senate’s request for USC to become a member of the Institute of International Education’s Syria Consortium for Higher Education in Crisis.Beside joining the consortium, USC will devote itself to “providing scholarships each academic year for at least three Syrian students who meet the standards for admission to the university,” according to the memorandum.Among USC’s other efforts in providing educational opportunities to endangered scholars, as mentioned in the statement, are its membership in Scholars at Risk and the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund.GSG released its resolution advocating for USC to join the Consortium in October 2015, stating that in light of the fact that “the Syrian Civil War is in its fifth year, and there is no indication that a peaceful resolution to the conflict is forthcoming,” and that since many other American universities have made the effort to join the Consortium, it is USC’s core values that “compel it to act in solidarity with Syrian students and scholars.”The Institute of International Education was founded in 1919 and has dedicated itself to providing advanced education opportunities around the world through scholarships, policy discussion and “protecting scholarship around the world,” according to their website.The IIE Syria Consortium has declared a state of academic emergency in the wake of the crisis in Syria, urging universities to provide scholarships to Syrian students.In the memo, Dean of Religious Life Varun Soni was named as the liaison between the University and incoming Syrian students in order to “cultivate a safe haven for these displaced scholars and students,” while also striving to “afford them every opportunity to succeed in their academic endeavors here.”“This is a worthy cause and one that is consistent with our values and our goal of becoming the leading private institution dedicated to the global public good,” Bailey and Graddy said in the memo. “We are dedicated to continuing our important work with Scholars at Risk and the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund to help secure placements for these academics, as appropriate.”last_img read more

Spurs ready for trophy charge after 11-year drought, vows Alli

first_img“We’ve been getting quite far in recent years without quite having the finishing product at the end and not getting over the line.”Tottenham crushed fourth tier minnows Tranmere 7-0 in the FA Cup third round on Friday as Pochettino used only three first-team regulars in a bid to keep his key men fresh for the Chelsea tie.Alli was one of the trio who featured in the rout at Prenton Park and he expects Pochettino’s plan to pay dividends against the Blues.– Consistency –“Some people maybe expect you to prioritise different things, but I believe we’ve got a strong squad,” Alli said.“Players work hard in the gym and on the training field to make sure we’re fully fit and the manager makes changes.“I think he’s very good at that and as players we want to play every game anyway.“We’ve just got to make sure everyone is on it and keep up the consistency because that’s the big thing.“When you’re going into different competitions, you can’t take your foot of the gas. You’ve got to be consistent and keep up your top level.”Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 London, United Kingdom | AFP | Dele Alli has pledged to end Tottenham’s 11-year wait for a major trophy as his side head into an explosive League Cup semi-final showdown with Chelsea.Tottenham haven’t won a leading competition since they beat Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final.But Tottenham midfielder Alli is convinced the north London club will finally add to their trophy cabinet this season.Tottenham are still in the Champions League and FA Cup, and also have an outside chance in the Premier League title race.But it is the League Cup that presents their first opportunity to end the silverware drought, starting with their last four first leg clash against bitter rivals Chelsea at Wembley.While the League Cup is often written off as an after-thought for the top clubs, England star Alli is adamant Mauricio Pochettino’s team must use the tournament as the catalyst to kick-start a successful period.League Cup glory would also secure a first major prize for Pochettino, who is widely regarded as one of Europe’s brightest young coaches but has yet to win a single trophy in his managerial career with Tottenham, Southampton and Espanyol.“I think every game, every competition, you want to win it,” Alli said.“As players you want to get as far in the cup as we can, hopefully win it.“We want to win trophies, that’s our aim and we’ve been playing well.last_img read more
