Maxi Gomez makes Valencia switch

first_imgValencia have announced the signing of Maxi Gomez from fellow La Liga club Celta Vigo. The striker has signed a five-year deal at Mestalla, with a release clause set at €140 million (£125m/$158m).The deal, which is worth an initial €14m (£12.5m/$15.8m) deal sees Spanish forward Santi Mina move in the other direction, returning to his former club after four seasons away.Their agreement also includes the two-year loan of new Valencia signing Jorge Saenz, who recently arrived from Tenerife. Maxi’s move brings to a close a summer of speculation for the Uruguayan, who was heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League with West Ham following the recent departure of Marko Arnautovic. However, Sunday’s news will see the 22-year-old remain in Spain’s top flight for the foreseeable future after two successful seasons with Celta, where he helped himself to 30 goals in 73 games across all competitions. The Uruguay international originally arrived in Europe in 2017 having started his professional career with Montevideo-based Defensor Sporting in his home country.A proposed move to West Ham reportedly collapsed earlier this month due to the €50m release clause in Maxi’s Celta Vigo contract.

La Liga rules meant that the sum had to be paid in full in order to take the forward to London – a condition that the Hammers were reluctant to agree to, with instalments their preferred method of payment.And as the player himself explained to the club’s official website, the prospect of Champions League football with Valencia also swayed his decision after their fourth-place league finish last season.“I’m very happy to be joining Valencia,” said Maxi. “They’re a very big club and I’m happy to be here.“It’s really nice to be able to play in the Champions League. I’ve never done that before, and from a young age I’ve always dreamt of playing in the Champions League and La Liga.“I’m very grateful to Valencia and very happy.

I hope that good things are on the way. I’m going to give my all, as I have done for every club for which I’ve played.“I was able to meet some of my teammates the other day, although a lot of them were missing still.“I’m very eager to stat training and give everything for Valencia.”last_img read more

The Manual Wind: NOMOS Glashutte Lambda 39mm

first_img Editors’ Recommendations Jameson Releases Two New Caskmates Editions Duke Cannon Has Entered the Fragrance-Sphere With the Proper Cologne Line  Koy Gear Aims to Revolutionize Men’s Everyday Apparel Some of the toughest critics are watch enthusiasts.  From price point to fit and finish, you might say there is never pleasing a watch collector.  With that said, It takes hard work and unique design to be a successful up-and-comer in the watch world. One brand that is slowly winning over these hard critics is NOMOS Glashutte.  Clean design and in house movements got this boutique German ball rolling and its certainly gaining speed.  Its latest, the 39mm NOMOS Lambda, is another clean look that is hard to hate.A little smaller than the original, this 39mm version takes the clean Lambda look and brings it in 3mm from its original 42mm diameter.  Inside lies the same in-house manual wind movement as its big brother.  Made in three variations, all rose gold, there is great contrast along with the simplicity of the dial design.  The three variations include a while dial with gold hands for a more classic look, white dial with blue-steel hands for a more modern look, and a “black velvet” dial with gold hands which i find the most striking.  The layout of the dial is what truly sets this watch apart.  With the focus on the power reserve, this makes for great symmetry with a different aesthetic then normally seen in such a piece.  Unlike the dramatic figure “8” design of Jacquet Droz, this upside down “8” is more subtle yet still maintains the same amount of classic design.There is something to be said for releasing a smaller version of a wildly successful model.  At 42mm, the Lambda big brother helped put NOMOS on the map.  At 39mm, NOMOS has made the Lambda the purists dress watch.  Priced at $17,000, this piece requires a large withdrawal to make a subtle statement.
