Francisco Ortega on Celtic transfer radar as Argentina full back 'explored' in Mohanad Jeahze contingency plan

A deal for Argentinian left-back Francisco Ortega is reportedly being 'explored' by Celtic this summer.

After lifting the Scottish Premiership title, competition for Greg Taylor appears to be a priority for Ange Postecoglou this summer.

Forgotten Boli Bolingoli looks set to bring the curtain down on his spell at Celtic Park this summer, and Velez Sarsfield star Ortega appears to be on the Parkhead wish list.

The Daily Mail report that the 23-year-old has been the subject of positive scouting reports and a deal is now being "explored".

Postecoglou has distanced himself from a deal for Iraq international Mohanad Jeahze in recent weeks, and Ortega could present a viable alternative.

Reports in Sweden report that Hammarby are preparing for a move for their full-back from Celtic and looking at replacements for Jeahze.

Interest in Ortega comes with the transfer floodgates set to open at Celtic with a permanent transfer for Jota seemingly top of the agenda.

The winger is set for further Parkhead talks when he returns from a holiday in Ibiza with the club set to pay Benfica £6.5million to secure the player.

The Portuguese side are set to have sell-on clause that could be as high as 30 per cent.

‘Final Cut’ Star Berenice Bejo on How She ‘Wore Down’ Partner Michel Hazanavicius for Role in Zombie Romp
Manori Ravindran International EditorBérénice Bejo was thrilled to be asked how she came to be involved in Michel Hazanavicius’ “Final Cut.”The French-Argentine actor — who plays a mad make-up artist in the zombie romp that opened Cannes on Tuesday — revealed that it wasn’t easy convincing director Hazanavicius, who is also her husband, to let her have a role.“He said, ‘I’m really sorry but this time I don’t think we’ll be working together.’ He said I was ‘too pretty’ and I said, ‘What is that?’ I got a bit upset,” said Bejo.“Final Cut,” Hazanavicius’ eighth feature, is a remake of Japanese zombie comedy “One Cut of the Dead” (2017), which became a cult sensation. The film begins as a French zombie comedy, but soon lifts the lid on how the film was made and becomes more a commentary on — in Variety critic Owen Gleiberman’s words — the “creative innocence of terrible filmmaking.” Bejo seemingly took great pleasure in explaining how it was only when Hazanavicius caught COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic in 2020 and she took care of him morning, noon and night that he finally relented.“After a week of agony, he said, ‘Can you please read my screenplay?’ and I said, ‘Well, I’m too busy and I’m not even going to be in the film,'” said Bejo.

Lionel Messi 'agrees' player-owner deal with Inter Miami earning '35% shares'
Lionel Messi will reportedly acquire a 35% share of Inter Miami after reportedly agreeing a four-year deal with the MLS club - although dad and agent Jorge has denied it.DirecTV reports, via Marca, that the 34-year-old has agreed to join the club once his deal with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of next season. He is also understood to be set to receive a 35% stake in the club as a result of the deal, with Inter Miami having been valued at between £481million and £521million last August, according to Sportico.That valuation would mean that Messi's shares would currently be worth between £168million and £182million, 12 months before he joins the club.The Argentine forward only headed to PSG last summer, arriving on a free transfer from Barcelona and signing a two-year deal which keeps him in the French capital until the summer of 2023.Despite winning the league title in his first season in France, Messi has struggled in his new surroundings, scoring just six goals in his 25 league appearances.Inter Miami co-owner Jorge Mas hinted at signing Messi earlier in the season, telling the Miami Herald in February: “Leo Messi is still one of the best players in the world, his skills have not diminished."I believe, and David [Beckham] has a relationship with him, that if he leaves PSG, at the time he leaves PSG we would love to have Messi as a player at Inter Miami and be part of our community.Should Lionel Messi head to the MLS next summer?

Fans 'crying' as mad commentator's hysterical singing after Kevin Phillips goal resurfaces
goalgasms' are the funniest thing in football commentary, then oh boy, you ain't seen nothin' yet!Prepare yourself for the best minute-and-a-half of your week as an Argentine commentator legitimately loses his mind live on air after Kevin Phillips scores for Southampton against Chelsea in 2005.After starting with the customary elongated 'goooooaaal' we get from most Latin mic-men, he randomly bursts into song, providing viewers with a glorious rendition of The Rolling Stones' 1965 hit (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, replacing half the lyrics with 'Kevin Phillips'.Instead of the famous line, 'Cause I try, and I try, and I try, and I try, I can't GET NO', we get, "Kevin Phil, Kevin Phil, Kevin Phil, Kevin Phil, Kevin PHIL-LIPS," which to be fair rolls off the tongue just as easily as Mick Jagger's lyrics.What makes it even funnier is the way he stops abruptly mid-song and seamlessly transitions back into regular commentary when Didier Drogba breaks through on goal (watch the insanity in full below, for your own good).Even if he spoke in Spanish ever week, would be happy if this commentator took Robbie Savage's job at BT Sports? Let us know in the comments section below"This is absolute insane is he on drugs hahaha," one Twitter user wrote."Now that’s what we need more of instead of the dry depressed and biased commentary we have to suffer on sky.
