back Haaland:

    Joe Manchin announced Wednesday he will vote to confirm Representative Deb Haaland for secretary of the Interior Department after claiming last week he was undecided over her nomination. 'With respect to Representative Haaland and her confirmation hearing, while we do not agree on every issue, she reaffirmed her strong commitment to bipartisanship, addressing the diverse needs of our country and maintaining our nation's energy independence,' Manchin said in a statement Wednesday. 'I believe Deb Haaland will be a Secretary of the Interior for every American and will vote to confirm her,' the West Virginia centrist Democrat assured. Manchin threw Haaland's nomination into chaos last week as he revealed he was unsure if he would vote to confirm her or not to President Joe Biden's cabinet. Haaland support more green energy initiatives, and Manchin represents a state rooted in natural energy industry. If confirmed, Haaland would make history as the first...
    THE top scorers in the Premier League this season with 53 goals from their 25 games, Manchester United hardly need a striker.

But how would the Old Trafford chief squeeze all five stars into the team in the highly unlikely scenario they managed to land all of them? First and foremost, Harry Maguire - still the...

    MANCHESTER UNITED boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer WILL get the backing to bring the world’s top stars to Old Trafford this summer. And that means the green light to join rivals Manchester City in the battle for Erling Haaland. 2Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (right) could launch a new bid for Erling Haaland this summer It is also the clearest indication yet that the Red Devils manager, 47, will be handed a new deal to continue his overhaul at the end of the season. United were in the hunt for Haaland, the most wanted striker in Europe, before he joined Borussia Dortmund last January. A £65million release clause only kicks in next year, meaning anyone wanting to sign the 20-year-old before then will have to pay an inflated premium. Leeds-born Haaland scored twice last night — one an incredible bicycle-kick — as Dortmund claimed an emphatic 4-0 win at Schalke. Fellow Norwegian Solskjaer...

    FOR the better part of 20 years the question has been: Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? But now it's fair to say people should be asking: Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland? 5Haaland and Mbappe are already well on their way to taking over from Ronaldo and Messi as football's kings 5Mbappe scored a hat-trick as PSG stunned Barcelona 4-1 at the Nou Camp on TuesdayCredit: Getty Images - Getty Ronaldo, 36, and Messi, 33, have thrilled - and utterly divided - fans in their battle for the 'GOAT' crown since their rivalry began in the early-mid 00s.
