De Bruyne does not rule out leaving City if he does not play the Champions League

first_imgKevin de Bruyne, 28, has a contract with the Manchester City until 2023. This Saturday in a telematic interview with the Belgian newspaper HLN (Het Laatste Nieuws) he has not categorically denied leaving the club citizen if the appeal before the TAS does not prosper and they are not allowed to play European competitions for two seasons. It’s more, has left the door open to an exit and claims to keep an eye on events. UEFA sanctioned Manchester City for committing serious breaches of UEFA’s Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations by exaggerating its sponsorship earnings on its accounts. Without Champions: “Two years without European football would be very long. The club has told us that it is going to appeal and that it is almost one hundred percent sure that it is right. So I am waiting to see what will happen. I trust my team. Once the statement has been made I will review everything. Two years (without European football) would be very long. In the case of one year I could see it. I will not let my decision depend on what Pep does. Of course, I have already worked with other coaches and when Pep is leaving, I have to continue working with someone else. “ Transfer another club: “In recent years, and before, too, there have been many teams that have asked. But to be honest, I am very happy with City. I play for one of the best teams in the world, I play in England, the most competitive league, and I like that. It’s still a challenge to be the best and I need it too. What comes, comes. But it’s not like I’ve tried to leave City in those five years. I’ve also kept calm for my previous transfers. I’ve never had no problem and I’ve always waited for my moment. “New contract: “At the moment there are no real talks about a contract extension. I don’t know what will happen. We are a bit in limbo with everything that is happening now in the world. When the season finally ends, there may be an opportunity to look to the future. This is not the time to think about it right now. “Renovation of Roberto Martínez with Belgium: “Martinez’s project has not yet been completed. Stopping now would be strange. It seems logical to me to renew his contract. Martinez has a lot of experience. In England he coached big and small teams. Tactically, he has learned a lot in England. He let us play in a fixed system, and that works. The team has grown in recent years. “last_img read more

Housing Remains a Challenge in Colorados Growth

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Colorado Construction Denver Home Prices homes HOUSING Wells Fargo 2018-08-09 Radhika Ojha August 9, 2018 656 Views Sharecenter_img Housing Remains a Challenge in Colorado’s Growth Higher housing costs, lagging construction, and the rise of high-end single-family homes has made affordable housing a big challenge for Colorado, a state that is otherwise outpacing the rest of the nation economically.According to a report from the Wells Fargo Securities Economics Group that outlined the factors in the rapidly accelerating economy of the Centennial State, the state received less of a lift from domestic net migration, with the state’s popularity slipping among those that chose to move there. It slid from the third largest gainer from domestic migration in 2015 to 11th in the last one year, the Wells Fargo report indicated.The slide, the report said, was likely due to the higher housing costs in Denver. Domestic migration accelerated in states with more affordable homes for sale, such as Arizona, Idaho, and Nevada in the West; as well as North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee in the South.The Mile High City, “served as a beacon for millennials in particular, as the metro area’s 20 to 34-year-old population grew by 83,162 from 2010 to 2016, which was the tenth largest gain in the nation,” the report revealed.However, that growth fueled a boom in the construction of luxury apartments that accounted for most of the price increases that the city has witnessed recently. Looking at the future, the report said that Denver’s attraction for millennials could be hampered by these skyrocketing costs in housing.”While job and income growth have also been strong, many younger persons are still struggling to save for a down payment, particularly with home prices rising so rapidly,” the report stated.'”Affordable housing is in extremely short supply. Housing remains an enormous challenge in Denver and much of the Front Range,” said Mark Vitner, Senior Economist for Wells Fargo Securities and the author of this report. “Construction has lagged population growth, and much of what has been built has been luxury apartments or high-end single-family homes.”Despite the challenges posed by the housing market, Colorado, the report found has the fifth fastest growing job market in the U.S. and is only behind Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Texas. “The state has seen an influx of tech companies from California in recent years and is also home to many rapidly growing start-ups. The growth in the tech sector has helped draw in young college graduates, making the state a magnet for millennials,” the report indicated.last_img read more
