The way that Passan ends this bit of news is probably what all Indians’ fans think when they hear the idea of Encarnacion in an Indians’ uniform.“Would they spend the money?”Cleveland is in the market for a 1B/DH regardless, and if the Indians choose to re-sign Napoli or pursue other free-agents, like Chris Carter, Adam Lind, or Mitch Moreland, those contracts will not be cheap either.To sign Encarnacion would be a step above those guys.Last week, Yoennis Cespedes signed a 4-year, $110 million contract.Encarnacion is not the five-tool type player, like Cespedes, but is every bit as dangerous of a power threat, and anything less than $20 mil. per season would be a surprise for his next contract.It wouldn’t follow typical protocol, as the Tribe has not been in the habit of spending big money to sign free-agents, but to the credit of the front office, the Indians pulled the trigger on the Andrew Miller deal and picked up his salary.If Cleveland is going to make another splash leading up to 2017, Encarnacion would certainly have that impact. As hot stove rumors heat up, the latest involves the Cleveland Indians and 1B Edwin Encarnacion. Matt Medleylast_img read more

Arsenal and Tottenham have held ‘powwows’ over signing same player

first_imgAfter a barren few months, the Suso rumours returned this week when it was revealed that Arsenal were looking at the Spaniard for the summer transfer window, having sent a scout to supervise him. Strapped for cash, the Gunners could possibly have been lured by the shiny €38-40m release clause in the Milan star’s contract, knowing there would be very little negotiating needed to get their man.However, they aren’t the only ones, as Tottenham, according to Corriere dello Sport, have also joined their North London rivals, having been big fans of the former Liverpool player for some time now.The Italian newspaper explain a few ‘powwows’ or ‘chats’ have been held between (we’re guessing) the player’s entourage and Spurs, Arsenal and Atlético Madrid, but ‘nothing more concrete’ for now.Embed from Getty ImagesAs they point out, this list could continue to grow between now and the summer, especially if the contract renewal talks that have reportedly started don’t go anywhere.Milan, keen to either increase or wipe out the release clause, are ready to offer their star €4m/year, but he wants €5m to try and get closer to Gianluigi Donnarumma.Suso has scored six goals and picked up eight assists in 26 appearances in all competitions this season, meaning he’s on course to beat last year’s tally of six and 14, hence the desire to renew.It’s not that his current deal is close to expiring, since that was signed in 2017 until 2022, but that clause could seriously come back to bite Milan in the backside if they aren’t careful, and they know that.Especially if Arsenal or Tottenham want to make up for their rather poor January windows next Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
