Inter chief rules out Martinez move to Barcelona

Barcelona’s attack looks likely to be revamped next season with Luis Suarez expected to join Juventus and greater prominence given to Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele.

But in the case of Lautaro he is very happy at Inter and I notice it when he is happy.” Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti has ruled out striker Lautaro Martinez joining Barcelona this summer: “He is our present and future.” Barcelona transfer news has been defined by their interest in Martinez this summer and claims from Diario Sport in July said the striker’s €111m release clause has now expired, although it is unclear if the Catalan giants were ever prepared to sanction such a fee. The striker scored 21 goals in 49 appearances for the Nerazzurri last season and has firmly established himself as one of the elite strikers in European football – helping the club to the Europa League final. “Lautaro is not leaving Inter. Not only does Barcelona notice him, but Lautaro is clear that he is at a great club like ours and he is happy,” Zanetti told Fox Sports, as cited by Marca. “For not now he is not going, he is our present and future.Advertisement Loading… last_img read more

USWNT player salaries: USA women’s soccer pay vs. men’s team during World Cups

first_img Getty Images The U.S. women’s national team may be on course for a historic fourth World Cup title, but they still make a fraction of what their male counterparts make despite having achieved so much more. The USWNT fought for a raise and received one in 2017, when players saw an undisclosed salary hike.  USWNT player salaries vs. U.S. men’s soccer teamUSWNT goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris told the New York Times she expects to earn “between $300,000 and $400,000” in 2019, though another unnamed USWNT player estimated she’d make $167,500.Former USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo is reported to have earned $240,019 with the national team in 2015 by FiveThirtyEight, compared to USMNT players Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard, who earned $428,022 and $398,495 respectively. The same outlet says Carli Lloyd made $366,000 in 2015 after adding up all of her bonus money, appearance fees, and other income related to the World Cup and other tournaments. This is in addition to her salary for being on the national team, and what she made for playing in the NWSL. That is almost as much as what Manchester United player Alexis Sanchez makes on a weekly basis, at $440,000 a week. Despite the pay rise, the USWNT still make drastically less than the men’s team, even though they are far more successful. The USWNT have won three World Cups and four Olympic gold medals. The men’s team haven’t won an Olympic medal in more than a century, were knocked out at the last-16 phase in the 2014 World Cup and failed to even qualify for the 2018 edition in Russia.WORLD COUPLESUSWNT stars and their athlete significant others at the 2019 World CupAnd earlier this year, the USWNT team filed a lawsuit against U.S. Soccer, seeking better pay for women, who reportedly earned 38 per cent of what their male counterparts make.That lawsuit stipulated that if each team played and won 20 exhibition games in a year, “female WNT players would earn a maximum of $99,000 or $4,950 per game, while similarly situated male MNT players would earn an average of $263,320 or $13,166 per game”.The lawyers representing the 28 USWNT players and U.S. Soccer have since agreed to mediation outside of court to settle the wage dispute.How much do the USWNT players get paid?Most of the USWNT play at the club level in the National Women’s Soccer League (NSWL), with minimum yearly salaries in the region of $16,538, and the maximum salary rising to $46,200 since January 2019.This means that the minimum salary for NWSL players doesn’t meet the living wage. Meanwhile, the minimum yearly salary for the first 24 players on each MLS roster rose from $67,500 in 2018 to $70,250 in 2019. The minimum for remaining players, who must be 24 or younger, was increased from $54,500 in 2018 and $56,250 in 2019.U.S. Soccer subsidizes the NWSL, which would not exist without its financial support, whereas MLS is self-sufficient. NWSL is in its sixth season and salaries in MLS (now in its 24th season) were similarly low when it was in its infancy.USWNT compensation works differently than organizations across the world. Usually what happens is that a club pays a player a salary, and the national federation then compensates the player for appearances on the international level. For the USWNT, however, it’s the federation (U.S. Soccer) that pays the club salary; the women then draw a second salary for their national play, which is a departure from the men’s team. It’s impossible to calculate what an average USWNT player would make due to their different sponsorship deals and bonuses, but it’s fair to say that should they win the World Cup this summer in France, the top players could earn over $400,000 overall this year — with the average possibly coming in closer to $500,000. This also comes before endorsement deals, which can add hundreds of thousands of dollars more for star players. But this doesn’t take into account the significantly smaller cash pool that the Women’s World Cup earners are awarded compared to the men’s tournament. They will earn just 7.5 percent of what their male counterparts would earn.Prize money for winning the 2019 Women’s World CupThe 2019 World Cup winners will split $4 million, with the total prize money awarded to all participating teams this summer in the region of $30 million. Both figures are double of what the Women’s World Cup paid teams during the 2015 World Cup tournament in Canada, but it is still 7.5 percent of the total prize money awarded to the 2018 men’s World Cup champions, France.During the 2018 World Cup in Russia, 32 teams competed for $400 million in prize money, with champion France awarded $38 million. France’s payout alone is more than what all 24 women’s teams will compete for in the 2019 World Cup.World Cup prize money: Men vs. womenWorld Cup yearTotal purseWinner’s prize money2018 (men)$400 million$38 million2019 (women)$30 million$4 millionWhat is Alex Morgan’s net worth, salary?Star player Morgan is arguably her country’s most recognizable hero, and is reported by Money to be earning upwards of $1 million annually. Morgan’s net worth is estimated to be over $3 million according to Celebrity Net Worth, and Time named her the highest paid American female soccer player in June 2015, attributed mostly to her endorsement deals, having signed partnerships with businesses like Nike, Panasonic and AT&T among others.Her teammate Julie Ertz also has an estimated net worth of $3 million, but these two are by far the outliers of their team in terms of wages.Morgan is considered one of the world’s greatest female athletes, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi — who each earn over $100 million in salaries — make 100 times more than she does. It seems like a decent amount of money, and it is, but it still pales in comparison to what their USMNT counterparts have been making annually.Twenty-year-old USMNT star Christian Pulisic is set to take a hefty pay rise from his $1.1 million per year contract with Borussia Dortmund following his $74 million move to Chelsea, which made him the most expensive American soccer player of all time.Toronto FC and USMNT midfielder Michael Bradley earns a $6 million salary and $6.5 million total compensation.last_img read more

Robinson was arrested in March and charged with first-degree theft, a Class C felony punishable by up to ten years in prison.
