That being said if people want to know the difference, money in bank you can withdraw, but also a lot of these properties sell in five days.”

Last season’s Champions League winners will bid to carry the momentum from a successful week into the Barclays Premier League clash after keeping alive their two remaining quests for silverware in the FA Cup and Europa League. “Three points are a must for us on Sunday – we need to win the match,” Hazard said on Chelsea’s official website. “Chelsea are a big club – we have to win titles and to qualify for the Champions League. There’s a lot to do but we’ll try to do it all.” Eden Hazard believes a Chelsea victory over West Ham on Sunday is imperative as they seek to finish the season on a high. Hazard believes the close proximity of Thursday night’s 3-1 win over Steaua Bucharest, which secured a place in the Europa League last eight 3-2 on aggregate, could benefit Chelsea against a Hammers side who will be playing just their second match of the month. “It might favour us at the start of the game because we should be able to set the tempo and get into our stride quicker because we’ve been more used to playing competitive games recently,” Hazard said. “But where it might favour them slightly is the fact that towards the end of the game tiredness may set in for us, while in effect they should be stronger because they’ve had a bit of a rest. “It’s something we have to deal with, and with the support of our fans behind us I’m sure we will be able to.” Chelsea suffered the first defeat of Benitez’s tenure at Upton Park in December, despite entering half-time leading 1-0. “At Upton Park, one or two errors crept in, particularly during the second half, but we were very good in the first half,” Hazard said. “We need to try to repeat that first-half display on Sunday and make sure we get a positive result. We are going into the game in good form, so we should be able to produce a strong performance.” Press Association
Investigators in Fort Lauderdale are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who exposed himself and attacked an employee at a massage palor.The incident was reported on Saturday at Angel Day Spa just off of Davie Boulevard.According to the report, the suspect knocked on the door of the spa and once inside, began inquiring about prices. The suspect then exposed himself to the woman working the front desk. The victim ran to the back of the business to retrieve a phone to call 911 and at the point, the suspect chased after her. The employee then ran back to the front of the business with the suspect right behind her.“He grabs her, throws her on the ground and attempts to sexually batter her,” Police Sgt DeAnna Greenlaw said. “She fought her way through. She never stopped fighting. She is profusely screaming.”The suspect eventually stopped and left the business.“This is a violent offender who was physically overpowering a female,” Greenlaw said.The Spa has since handed over all of the surveillance tapes to authorities.Officials say the man was between the ages of 25 and 35 and stands about 5 feet 11 inches. He is said to have dark hair and a full beard and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap with a Marlins logo, a black t-shirt, black sweatpants, and a white Louis Vuitton monogram mask.If you have any information about this incident, you are asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

FC Barcelona could miss out on signing Lautaro Martinez this summer after a delay in negotiations, according to reports.The Inter Milan striker is the LaLiga side’s No 1 transfer target but he will come at a high price. The 22-year-old has a release clause of £99million which the Serie A side want up front.And Marca report that Inter’s insistence at having the fee being paid all at once is causing a stumbling block with Barca reluctant to meet their demands. The outlet also claims that Manchester United and Real Madrid are monitoring Martinez’s situation at the San Siro.The Argentine favours a move to the Nou Camp but is also said to want an increase on his current wages, which is also causing a problem for the Catalans.Barca players have agreed to a 70 per cent pay cut due to the £134m loss expected as a result of coronavirus crisis.Martinez has been one of the standout player in Italy this season with 16 goals and four assists in 31 games across all competitions and has previously admitted a desire to play alongside Lionel Messi.The striker’s representatives claimed last week that Roma and Barca’s LaLiga rivals Atletico Madrid missed out on the opportunity to sign the star two years ago.Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, intermediary Luis Ruzzi said: “I offered Lautaro to Roma in January 2018, when he cost €8million (£7.1m), which was the price of his termination clause, but the Giallorossi did not want him.”Barca are also linked with a move for former striker Neymar if negotiations with Martinez continue to stall.Neymar has previously been linked with a return to the the Nou Camp with the club failing to re-sign him last summer and UOL Esporte claim the club are desperate for the Brazilian to play alongside Messi once again.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
