The player is determined to leave

By Tuesday morning, it doesn't look as though his clause is going to be paid to see him leave Atletico Madrid, but his desire is to continue his career away from the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Jonathan Barnett, Saul's agent, has been acting on his client's wishes this summer by shopping him around, particularly in the Premier League, but the line hasn't had any firm bites yet.

Chelsea are interested and have been considering a move for the midfielder, but they have already spent big to sign Romelu Lukaku this summer. As MARCA have reported already, the European champions are keen on the idea of an initial loan deal with an option to buy in a similar kind of move that saw Alvaro Morata leave Atleti for Juventus. Although explored, the deal came to a standstill as Chelsea didn't want their option to purchase the player to become an obligation, which is something that Los Rojiblancos are insisting on.

As Miguel Angel Gil Marin has communicated with MARCA, they aren't going to stand in Saul's way if he wants to leave.

With the clock running against Saul's desire to leave, new contact is expected on Tuesday between the three parties with a view to finding a solution, but the player finds himself in an unwanted situation now. Simeone has already told him that he is no longer an undisputed starter at the club, as he had been in previous campaigns.

Should Saul leave on deadline day, Atleti appear to have identified Paris Saint-Germain's Pablo Sarabia as the man they'd like to replace him in the team.

A Brazilian bull rider was killed Sunday when his spur got caught in a rope, pulling him under the bull, and the animal stepped on his chest in California, according to the Professional Bull Riders touring group.

Amadeu Campos Silva, 22, was competing at a bull-riding Velocity Tour event at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, said Andrew Giangola, a spokesperson for Professional Bull Riders. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Campos Silva lost his balance and his spur got stuck in the flank strap, which is wrapped around the bull’s lower torso to encourage it to buck. In a “freak accident,” Campos Silva was pulled underneath the bull, which then stomped on his chest, Giangola said.

The Fresno County coroner’s office confirmed Campos Silva’s death but has not yet determined the cause.

Giangola said the bull, named “Classic Man,” will still be eligible for future events despite the tragedy. The bull was not at fault, he said.

“It clearly was not an act of aggression,” he said. “The bull was bucking in his normal pattern.”

“A bull rider with a lot of promise,” Campos Silva competed in the 2020 Professional Bull Riders World Finals after debuting in the United States the year before. He was pursuing his dream to support his family.

“He was a determined cowboy,” Giangola said.

Britney Spears and her new attorney say her father is trying to get about $2 million in payments before stepping down from the conservatorship that controls her life and money, a move they liken to extortion in a court filing Tuesday.

The document filed by lawyer Mathew Rosengart says the upcoming scheduled accounting of the conservatorship, which James Spears says he wants completed before he steps down, will mean significant payments for him.

Antonio Heriberto Galindo, 41, of Rancho Cucamonga, was arrested Aug. 27 in connection with the crime, officials said in a news release.

A report released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Justice concluded that “there is reason to believe that the practices at the jail violate the Eighth and 14th Amendments of the Constitution, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).”

The Professional Bull Riders announced the news late Sunday, attributing his death to a "terrible wreck" during competition on the organization's Velocity Tour. He was transported from the Save Mart Center to Fresno's Community Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

"Amadeu was a rising star in our sport; a cowboy with so much potential on and off the dirt," PBR's statement reads. "The entire PBR and western sports family extend our thoughts, prayers, and heartfelt condolences to Amadeu’s family and friends."

The Fresno County Coroner's office confirmed Silva's death to the Fresno Bee, but did not provide details on the cause. PBR officials told USA Today that Silva died of chest injuries after being bucked off a bull. PBR livestock director Cody Lambert witnessed the incident and described it to USA Today.

“When he came off, his spur got tangled up and it turned him upside down right under the bull’s back leg,’’ Lambert said. “It’s just a really freak, tragic accident.’’

PBR spokesman Andrew Giangola told USA Today that the incident "was not an act of aggression" from the bull, but a "freak accident."

A native of Brazil, Silva moved to the United States in 2018 after competing in PBR Brazil in 2017. In 2019, he made his debut on the Velocity Tour, which features up-and-coming PBR bull riders. He competed in the PBR World Finals in 2020.
