Man Utd's window goes from bad to worse as Benjamin Sesko 'closes in' on Leipzig move
Manchester United target Benjamin Sesko is closing in on a move to RB Leipzig next summer as Erik ten Hag's transfer plans are dealt yet another blow.According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 19-year-old Slovenian - who has also been linked with Chelsea and Newcastle this summer - will stay at Red Bull Salzburg this season before joining their sister club in the Bundesliga in 12 months time.United have been tracking the striker for weeks and were considering a formal approach with Cristiano Ronaldo's future still up in the air, though it appears they've now missed their shot, especially with reports of a move for former West Ham and Stoke City forward Marko Arnautovic in the pipelines.READ MORE: Marko Arnautovic's agent brother hints he is trying to get Man Utd transfer doneLeipzig have a history of pinching Salzburg's players with the likes of Naby Keita, Dominik Szoboszlai and Dayot Upamecano all moving up the Red Bull food chain by switching Austria for Germany on their way to the top.Sesko joins Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Ajax forward Anthony on the list of players to have slipped through United's grasp this summer, leaving the club gagging for a little reinvigoration, especially in light of their opening day defeat to Brighton on Sunday, after which Ten Hag admitted he was "totally not satisfied" with the state of his squad.In a damning indictment, former Red Devils defender Gary Neville slammed the club's torrid transfer strategy in recent seasons, insisting that United's troubles are largely self-inflicted.MAN UTD FANS - Which striker would you love to see the club sign?

Mariko Minoguchi, Mo Harawe, Mo Scarpelli Bring New Projects to Locarno’s Alliance 4 Development
Marta Balaga Alliance 4 Development, a co-development initiative for film projects from Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland hosted by Locarno Pro, has revealed 11 titles selected for its 7th edition.The majority of the projects will be directed by women, from Giorgia Wurth’s “Allegra” about a late-life sexual awakening to Malina Mackiewicz’s “Bottom of the Ocean Electric Fish” and Mariko Minoguchi’s upcoming “Element.” The latter will address some environmental fears as a team of scientists tries to ensure that Earth’s water supply won’t suddenly disappear.Minoguchi, who previously co-wrote the script to Tim Fehlbaum’s “The Colony,” is hoping to develop a German science fiction film that “doesn’t shy away from big emotions or images,” she stated, “that makes you think and reflect and, above all, is a moving and impressive cinematic experience.” Big emotions will also fuel Manon Coubia’s “Songs of the Fallen Mountains,” with old lovers reunited on a mythical mountain, and Stéphane Riethauser’s “Orpheus” about a relationship between a young dancer and his choreographer.“‘There is no love; there are only proofs of love.’ These words by Jean Cocteau will guide me to direct my first fiction feature,” he promised, calling it “a film beyond labels, barriers and genres. A film that reminds us that freedom to love is the most precious thing we have.
