Bayern Munich have agreed to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City for £54.8m in a five-year deal

The Bundesliga champions will pay an initial fee of £44.7m (€49m) for the 24-year-old German winger with £10m (€11m) in add-ons which takes the deal to £54.8m.

City have also included a 10 percent sell-on clause into the deal if the German club should they sell Sane in the future.

Sane is expected to fly to Germany in the next 24 hours to complete a medical.

The deal comes after Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola recently revealed the club would not seek to sign a replacement for the winger as they have plenty of options who are capable of playing in that position.

He said: “We have enough good players upfront. Gabriel (Jesus) can play on the left, Phil Foden can play on the left, we have Raheem (Sterling) there. We have big, talented players upfront.

“Most of them are in good healthy conditions, like Phil, Riyad (Mahrez), Gabriel, Raheem, they can play quite regularly for a long period of time, they are so stable in terms of injury situations. I think we have other priorities maybe.

“And I don’t know, after the coronavirus, if the situation economically and financially for the clubs is changing. I don’t know what the situation is. We’re going to see at the end of this season.”

Leroy Sane will depart the Etihad having made 192 appearances for City and scoring 52 goals for the club in all competitions.

Orange Improves Access To Mobile Internet In Africa Supported By Google

Published

on

The affordability of devices remains one of the most significant barriers to smartphone adoption in Africa. The average cost of an entry-level smartphone in Africa still exceeds 60% of average monthly income making smartphones largely inaccessible for the majority of the population. As part of the line-up of activities for the GSMA Thrive Africa 2020, Orange announced the Sanza touch – an exclusive Orange smartphone and the most affordable 4G Android (Go edition) device globally. This exciting new launch is supported by Google and builds upon efforts since the launch of Android (Go edition) in 2018 to accelerate the pace of digital adoption across the continent. The device will retail around 30 US$ and the ultra-affordable price point is intended to make it the most accessible on the market with the goal of driving digital inclusion and providing more people access to mobile internet.

The Sanza touch is an accessible alternative for everyone due to its price point and features including the Payjoy application, which allows customers to overcome budget issues by paying for their smartphone over several installments (depending on availability in their country).

This 4G Android (Go edition) smartphone has a 4” screen, 8GB memory, and a 1750mAh battery, offering over 4 hours of battery life while streaming videos. Customers can use the Orange app collection (My Orange, Orange Money, and Live screen to stay informed on the latest news trends) and access the most popular apps including YouTube Go, Google Go, Facebook, and WhatsApp.

The Sanza range was first launched in April 2019 in 13 countries [2] in Africa and the Middle East, making it easier for many customers to come online for the first time and discover the benefits of connectivity.

From October 2020, the Sanza touch smartphone will be available with a bundled mobile data plan (voice, SMS, data) at around 30 US$. It will be sold in most countries in the Middle East and Africa region, starting with Guinea Bissau, Côte d’Ivoire, and Madagascar.

For Alioune Ndiaye, CEO of Orange Middle East and Africa: “Orange wants to strongly accelerate access to connectivity on the African continent. One of the barriers to Internet use is the price and ease of use of most smartphones. The partnership with Google to offer the Sanza touch smartphone for sale will enable us to solve this problem thanks to its affordable price and advanced functionalities. While 90% of the world’s population is now covered by mobile broadband, 3.3 billion people who live in areas covered by mobile broadband remain unconnected for reasons such as affordability, low levels of literacy, and digital skills [3]. »

Mariam Abdullahi – Director, Platform Partnerships, Android, and Play – Africa for Google added: “Our mission at Google has always been to “Organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible to everyone”. We deliver this mission through the building and providing our products and services via key partnerships like this one with Orange. We are excited about the endless possibilities this Sanza touch smartphone will present in learning, economic opportunities, and digital accessibility. The Goal of our Android devices, including this first-of-its-kind highly affordable Android (Go edition) device, is to bring the power of computing equitably to all. We can only achieve this mission if everyone is able to access devices at affordable price points to use in their daily lives and have access to the benefits presented by the digital world.”

Orange is present in 18 countries in Africa and the Middle East where it had 124 million customers on 30 July 2020. With 5.6 billion euros in turnover in 2019 and 6% annual growth, Orange MEA is the Group’s main region of growth. Orange Money, its mobile-based money transfer and financial services offer is available in 17 countries and has 54 million customers.

Joe Biden Says He Will Not Do A Drug Test Before Presidential Debate Against Trump; Trump Responds

Published

on

US presidential candidate, Joe Biden has laughed off Donald Trump’s demand that he take a drug test before the first presidential debate in Ohio on Tuesday September 29.

Trump suggested during the weekend that Biden should engage in a drug test beause he feels Biden will need drugs to perform well during the debate, but Biden laughed off Trump’s suggestions.

When asked at a news conference on Sunday, Biden said: “He’s almost – no. I have no comment.”

But the Biden campaign on Monday blasted Trump, saying the president apparently believed the best case for his re-election could be “made in urine”.

“Vice-President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words,” a Biden spokesperson told Politico. “If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it.”

“We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200,000 Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop Covid-19.”

Trump has now responded to Biden’s refusal to do drug test before the debate.

Taking to Twitter on Monday, September 28, Trump wrote;
‘Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test. Gee, I wonder why?’
