Man Utd warned McGinn’s price tag has ‘shot up’

first_imgManchester United have been warned off making a move for John McGinn, with Aston Villa boss Dean Smith saying the midfielder’s price tag has “shot up”.The Scotland international was linked with a switch to Old Trafford over the summer, with it suggested that he could have a £50 million ($65m) valuation on his head.He had not graced the Premier League at that stage, having helped Villa to Championship play-off glory in 2018-19, but has continued to shine among English football’s elite.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career McGinn has been talked up as the kind of player that former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be advising Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Red Devils board to keep an eye on.Smith is aware of the rumours and how talented a prized asset at Villa Park is, but he has no intention of sanctioning a sale of speculating on what could happen in upcoming transfer windows.He told reporters when quizzed on the McGinn speculation: “The big clubs can come calling but they’ll get a short, swift reply! He’s a player we want here at Aston Villa.“His value shot up from the moment he stepped out onto the Villa Park pitch and showed just what a player he is.“He has an unbelievable energy level and a big, big heart, but people don’t see the technical side of it as well – he’s got that in abundance.”Villa are under no pressure to sell as they are backed by owners who have shown a willingness to continue investing, rather than cash in on those attracting admiring glances from afar.They also have McGinn tied to a long-term contract through to 2024.Breaking that agreement will not be easy for any sides plotting an approach, with Villa confident that they will be the ones to benefit from the 25-year-old’s ability for the foreseeable future.Smith added: “He’s a really top player and pivotal to us getting promoted last season.“He’s continued that form in the Premier League and his value would have certainly shot up.”McGinn contributed seven goals and 10 assists to the Villa cause last season, with another three efforts recorded in 2019-20 as Smith’s side have made a solid start to life back in the big time.last_img read more

The Power of Percussion Theragun Adds 2 New Devices to Its Manifest

first_imgTheragunIt’s no secret that we were huge fans of Theragun’s insane at-home muscle massager, the Theragun G3PRO, when it was the only choice in the brand’s repository. Now we can fanboy times-three with the introduction of the brand’s two newest products: the Theragun G3 and the Theragun liv. These two smaller and more portable versions of the original G3PRO offer a streamlined and lightweight Theragun experience, which is great, considering our only quibble about the product in our previous review was the fact that it was definitely not something you could easily travel with or carry back and forth from the gym.Both new devices each offer different features, so here’s a look at what differentiates the two from each other and from the original Theragun G3PRO.

However, that portability comes with fewer attachments (there are only two for this one), a lower stall force of just 30 lbs, the shortest battery life with a total of 45 minutes runtime, and just a single speed. However, with a price $300 less than the original and the same 16mm massage amplitude, for people who are price-conscious or just need casual, everyday soreness reduction, this is the best buying option.

It also comes with a travel case, four attachments, and a built-in battery. This one has a stall force of 40 lbs, so you won’t be able to dig into your muscles quite as hard as you could with the Theragun G3PRO, but unless you’re doing some serious lifting or running, you don’t really need that kind of pressure.
