Juventus In A Swap Deal To Give Out Miralem Pjanic, Mattia De Sciglio Plus £22m For Nelson Semedo

Juventus have reportedly agreed to pay Barcelona €25m plus Miralem Pjanic and Mattia De Sciglio for Nelson Semedo.

According to Football Italia, two sides have reached ‘an agreement in principle’ for the trio to swap clubs at the start of next season.

It is understood Nelson Semedo and Juve are ‘hours away’ from agreeing on terms with the right-back, while Pjanic and De Sciglio have already committed to joining the Catalans.

The source claims the extraordinary deal is due to Barca’s ‘high valuation’ of Semedo, which equates to €50m.

The €25m would then be reinvested into a deal for Inter striker Lautaro Martinez, who has a €111m release clause but is the Blaugrana’s top transfer target.

Semedo signed for Barca in the summer of 2017 from Benfica and has gone on to make more than 100 appearances at Camp Nou, winning two Spanish titles.

Arthur had been linked with moving in the opposite direction, at least to replace Pjanic, but the Brazil midfielder is refusing to leave.

We Are Not Removing NDC Supporters Names From Voters Register : EC Refutes John Mahama’s ‘Unfounded Allegations’

The Electoral Commission (EC) has debunked claims to the effect that the Electoral Management Body is carrying out an agenda to remove the names of National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) supporters and sympathizers from the voters’ register.

The EC is asking the general public to disregard the allegations, stressing it is false. “The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency, and Accountability.

Indeed, at every point, we have provided factual, accurate, and evidence-based information to our Stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age among others. To date, every interested Ghanaian has information on the number of persons who registered in the just concluded Voter Registration Exercise based on the information we provided.

“It is a paradox, therefore, to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the Voters Register. Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to Stakeholders throughout the Registration process. We assure the General Public that these allegations are unfounded,” a statement by the Electoral Commission read.
