David Luiz could link up with Mario Balotelli at new club

David Luiz could link up with Mario Balotelli at new club

David Luiz could link up with Mario Balotelli at new club. He is a free agent after his Arsenal contract expired at the end of the season.

Former Arsenal defender David Luiz could join Mario Balotelli at Turkish Super Lig side Adana Demirspor.

Luiz became a free agent after his Arsenal contract expired at the end of the season – bringing his two-year stay at the Emirates to a close.  

As a result, the newly-promoted Super Lig side are hopeful they will ‘reach an agreement’ with Luiz and sign him alongside Balotelli and Younes Belhanda this summer.

Having finally put an end to their 26-year exile from the Turkish top-flight, club president Murat Sancak is eager to strengthen their starting XI to avoid relegation.

Now Sancak is looking to confirm a deal with former Arsenal defender Luiz and ‘three or four more players’.

According to The Sun, he told Turkish media: ‘The discussions with David Luiz are going to continue. I hope we can soon reach an agreement.

‘When salaries are very high, one needs to negotiate a little.

‘We are getting ready for the new season, and I urge our fans to get ready as well.

‘We have signed a world-class star in Balotelli, and added Younes Belhanda to our squad.

‘We will sign three or four more players before the season begins.’

Why is the men’s Olympic soccer tournament for under-23s?

Why is the men's Olympic soccer tournament for under-23s?

Why is the men’s Olympic soccer tournament for under-23s? This summer’s men’s soccer tournament will actually be an under-24 competition.

The men’s soccer tournament at the Summer Olympics is restricted to under-23s, as part of a drive to preserve the FIFA World Cup’s status as the men’s game’s premier international event.

Men’s Olympic tournament an under-23 event since 1992

First held at the 1900 Olympics in Paris, the men’s soccer competition was limited to amateur players until the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, when professionals were allowed to take part.

However, to ensure the hegemony of FIFA’s flagship tournament, it was agreed that nations from Europe and South America – the globe’s strongest footballing continents – would only be able to pick players who had never appeared at a World Cup.

The no-World Cup requirement was then lifted for European and South Americans ahead of Barcelona 1992, but in exchange the tournament was limited to under-23s.

Three overage players permitted

Four years later, at Atlanta 1996, this age restriction was modified to allow participating nations to also include three overage players in their squad.

No age limit in women’s Olympic football tournament

The under-23 rule doesn’t apply to the women’s Olympic football tournament, which first took place at the ’96 Games.
