Edinson Cavani Offers To Join Radamel Falcao As Ex-Man Utd Strikers Eye Transfer Reunion

Published

on

Former Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani could link up with Radamel Falcao next season after the Uruguayan’s contract at Old Trafford expired.

A number of clubs in Europe have enquired about taking the 35-year-old while Argentine giants Boca Juniors have also been in the running to land his signature. He is now a free agent and on the lookout for a new club – with La Liga thought to be his favoured destination.

The experienced striker is hopeful of playing regularly for a club in Europe’s top five leagues as he wants to still be operating at the top level ahead of this winter’s World Cup finals in Qatar. The veteran striker still plays an important role for Uruguay and this year is likely to be his last World Cup appearance.

Cavani was involved in just 15 Premier League last season having impressed in his debut campaign and whilst that has partly been down to multiple injuries, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo pushed him down the pecking order at Old Trafford. He was one of six players to leave United at the end of their contracts alongside Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Lee Grant.

The Uruguayan had enjoyed an impressive debut season at United in which he played an important cameo role in which he scored 17 goals across all competitions, earning him a one-year contract extension. However, he was only able to find the net twice in his second and final campaign with the club.

A report in Marca has outlined how Cavani has offered his services to Madrid-based club Rayo Vallecano, who will be competing in La Liga next season. That would see him link-up with another former United striker – the Colombian forward Falcao, who bagged six goals for Rayo last season having joined the club from Galatasaray.

Radamal Falcao - now at Rayo Vallecano - spent the 2014-15 campaign on loan at Man Utd, but scored just four goals

While Cavani would be keen to play for Rayo, his reported wage demands of £3.4million per annum are beyond the Spanish club’s budget and any agreement would mean he would likely have to accept a significant wage cut.

Cavani is widely considered one of the best strikers of his generation, being known for his intelligent movement off the ball, clinical finishing, and heading ability. Having bagged 104 goals in three seasons with Napoli, he joined Paris Saint-Germain – with whom he won six Ligue 1 titles and scored 200 goals, more than any other player in the club’s history.

Published

The Golden Tulip Hotels in Accra and Kumasi will be rebranded after the Ghanaian government sold its stake in the facility to some Lebanese investors.

The four-star hotels are owned by a joint venture between the governments of Ghana and Libya (GLAHCO), with Ghana owning 60% and Libya owning 40%.

According to media reports, Ghana has completely sold its franchise to a company called Lancaster.

This means that the renowned hotels in Ghana’s capital and the Ashanti Regional capital will be known as Lancaster Accra City Hotel and Lancaster Kumasi City Hotel as of July 1st, 2022.

A letter from the General Manager with the heads of departments in copy read: “Achour Holding Limited operating as Lancaster Hotels will be the new lessee and would take effect from 1st July, 2022, with same conditions as previously communicated”.

“We urge you to support the new company to ensure a successful takeoff,” the statement added.

Another letter from the Rooms Division Manager of Golden Tulip Hotel, Lucy Ahedor said “we wish to inform you that from 1st of July, 2022, the name of the hotel will now change to Lancaster Hotel. We would also like to inform you to rest assured as this change will not affect normal operations of the hotel”.

“We are happy to also announce that the hotel under this new name will be going through refurbishment by enhancing most of the facilities,” she added.


Some hotel employees confirmed the sale and name change to Joy News, while sources say the move was spearheaded by government officials.

The Golden Tulip Hospitality Group is a hotel franchise and management company with locations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and the Americas.

Merchant SIMs, Cash-Outs, And Cash-Ins Exempted From E-Levy : GRA

Published

on

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has denied social media reports that the tax collection agency will begin charging E-Levy on merchant SIM cards on July 1, 2022.

The false reports also claim that Cash-Ins or deposits made through a merchant or vendor will be subject to E-Levy. According to GRA, this is not the case.

In a press statement, the GRA stressed that “the Levy does not apply to Specified Merchant Payments. It added that Specified Merchant Payments are payments made to merchants through a payment service to a person registered with the GRA for the purposes of Income Tax or Value Added Tax (VAT). Customers making payments to such specified merchants will NOT be charged the E-Levy”.

According to the GRA, the E-Levy does not apply to cash withdrawals and cash deposits either at the bank or at a mobile money agent or vendor point.

It explained that Cash-Ins or deposits do not attract E-Levy hence customers are NOT to pay any amount as E-Levy.

“The general public should note that E-Levy is NOT charged on merchant SIMs, as is being purported. The E-Levy is only charged on a transfer from a customer to a Specified Merchant if the merchant is NOT registered with GRA for Income Tax or VAT purposes,” a statement said.

Following Russia’s invasion, Zelensky stated that he supported the implementation of stricter controls for the entry of Russian citizens.

According to Zelensky, the country has decided to end visa-free travel for Russian citizens due to “unprecedented threats to Ukraine’s national security, sovereignty, and territorial integrity.”

Previously, Russian citizens did not require visas to enter Ukraine and could stay for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.
