Employee: I cannot afford an attorney. Can I do the work myself?

The old proverb that a “person who represents himself has a fool for a client,” still rings true. Unless you are conversant with the current laws and procedures of employment law, you will probably make mistakes.

Filing discrimination complaints with the EEOC and with your state’s human rights office may seem easy, and in fact these agencies may tell you that you do not need an attorney.

The primary issue is that a person who is not familiar with the legal aspects of discrimination law may misstate or forget to include something in the complaint that will turn out to be of primary importance as the case proceeds through the legal system.

Another thing to remember when representing yourself is that your employer will have at least one attorney. Many documents that the employer must file in a discrimination complaint are required to be created by an attorney. If there is a fact-finding hearing you will be face-to-face with the attorney and your former employer, but you will
have no one with you on your side. Also, by not having an attorney

represent you, you will be responsible for handling the negotiations to achieve a settlement. Settlements are not easy to obtain, even for attorneys, and require some knowledge of the potential litigation that
can result from an employment discrimination complaint.

Jadon Sancho

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has given an update on Manchester United’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund player Jadon Sancho during this transfer window.

It’s no secret that England international Jadon Sancho is the top transfer target for the Red Devils in the ongoing transfer market.

Dharmesh Sheth provided a transfer update on Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United earlier this week

He stated that time is running out for the Red Devils to complete the transfer of Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford and that Borussia Dortmund have not softened their stance on the exit of their prized asset.

Manchester United were given a transfer deadline of August 1 to secure the signing of the aforementioned Sancho and that ultimatum was extended to August 10 but the Premier League club decided to concentrate on agents and their fees.

According to him, Manchester United still have a little time for the transfer since the market won’t be shut until October 5.

Jadon Sancho netted 17 times in the league last season as his Borussia Dortmund side missed out on the German Bundesliga title to Bayern Munich.

The 20-year-old also added 16 assists to the goal tally.

In total, he has 35 goals in 101 games for Borussia Dortmund in all competitions.

West London giants Chelsea have reportedly made a new bid for their goalkeeper target as they hope to wrap up a deal before the end of this week.

The new bid was confirmed by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano as he reported that Chelsea hope that the new offer will be enough to sign their goalkeeper target.

Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is the top transfer target for the Blues in the goalkeeping department.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wants to sign a new goalkeeper this summer as he’s not convinced with Spanish shot stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga who had an average season in the last campaign.

Lampard dropped Kepa Arrizabalaga for a lot of big games towards the end of last season as he opted for ageing goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is the most expensive goalkeeper in the world after the Blues paid £71m for him but he has not justified that investment.

Chelsea have identified the aforementioned Edouard Mendy as the man to finally replace Kepa Arrizabalaga as the number one goalkeeper. They had a first offer rejected for him by Rennes.

Other reported goalkeeper target for Chelsea are Atletico Madrid shot stopper Jan Oblak, Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana and Burnley goal minder Nick Pope.

Chelsea have rejected a bid for midfielder N’Golo Kante according to journalist Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph.

Conte is keen to work with Kante again following the interest of Inter Milan in his services.

It was revealed that Inter Milan’s player-plus-cash offer including Croatian international Marcelo Brozovic was first rejected before the Italian Serie A giants returned with another proposal in a bid to sign world class midfielder N’Golo Kante.

The second Inter Milan proposal included former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen but it was also turned down by Chelsea.

Kante is an important player at Chelsea though the Frenchman didn’t have the best of seasons in the last campaign due to various injuries. He made 22 league appearances for his club last season.

Emerging reports reveal that English Premier League outfit Chelsea have received a bid of £23 million for left full-back Emerson Palmieri from Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan.

For the West London club, doing away with Emerson Palmieri and Marcus Alonso is already in the pipeline with newcomers for the left-back position a target in the coming summer transfer window. No wonder Frank Lampard now prefers to make us of Ceaser Azpilicueta who is not a natural left player.

Tutto Mercato Web reports that Chelsea Director Marina Granovskaia initially requested for £27 million for Emerson Palmieri but is forced to come down on the price because it is becoming clear that he no longer has a future at the Stamford Bridge.

Inter Milan are offering Emerson Palmieri a five year deal, and he would be paid £3.6 million a year at the San Siro.

However, The West London outfit are considering the option of Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell as a replacement for the left-back position as there is no assurance that Marcos Alonso will also be staying after this season.

Jadon Sancho

English Premier League clubs Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are all interested in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of the resumption of the transfer window this summer and they all need to pay a record fee for him.

According to the report from popular German newspaper Sport Bild, the aforementioned Premier League clubs will have to pay €140m for Jadon Sancho if they want to sign him this summer.

That transfer fee would be a Premier League record as it would surpass the one that took Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba from Juventus to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016.

Manchester United paid €100m for Pogba to return to the Premier League from the Italian Serie A some four years ago.

Pogba had left the Red Devils in 2012 as a teenager as the Frenchman joined Italian giants Juventus on a free transfer. He spent four hugely successful years with the Turin giants before returning to the Theatre of Dreams.

Jadon Sancho is in a similar position to Paul Pogba after the England international left Premier League champions Manchester City to sign for Borussia Dortmund in 2017 and one year after the world-record move of Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United.

The 19-year-old winger has been a very good signing for Borussia Dortmund and his form for the former Champions League winners has led to several interest from his home country.

Real Madrid FC of Spain and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are also monitoring his situation.

For now, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are the frontrunners for the player who has been able to spearhead the title challenge of Borussia Dortmund in the last two seasons.

Jadon Sancho has scored 14 goals and also provided 14 more goals in the German Bundesliga this season to fire his team to third place on the league table.

Jamie Carragher

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has given his verdict on the news that manager Jurgen Klopp could sell star forward Mohamed Salah in the summer as he bids to add new players to the Reds attack.

The former Reds defender was surprised that Liverpool will think about selling Mohamed Salah who’s the topscorer at the club this season.

Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool won’t sell Salah this summer before adding that Klopp will sign new players to improve his frontline ahead of next season.

It had been reported that Liverpool wants to sign both Jadon Sancho and Timo Werner.

Jadon Sancho plays his club football for Champions League last 16 recipient Borussia Dortmund, while Timo Werner plays his club football for another Champions League last 16 recipient in RB Leipzig.

Liverpool have been linked with the club-record £120m swoop of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund as the Reds want the young England international to return to the Premier League.

On his part, Timo Werner will set Liverpool back to the tune of £42m for his transfer from RB Leipzig to England next season.

The two players would cost around £162m and the possible sale of Mohamed Salah could fund the two transfers.

Timo Werner is also a target for both Chelsea and Manchester United though the petite German striker is said to favour a move to join Jurgen Klopp and his players at Anfield.

Jadon Sancho is also in the same situation with Chelsea and Manchester United also interested in him. He was a Premier League Player at Manchester City before his exit three years ago.

Liverpool are clearly not ready to relax despite a spectacular league season that has seen the Reds fail to win just one game. They have a 22-point lead over the chasing pack in the league with 11 games left.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are one of the teams in the Premier League keen to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho who has been in devastating form for his team for the better part of the last two years.

Recent reports claimed that Manchester United are ready to spend more than £100m on the 19-year-old England international and he has shown that he has the quality to be the right fit for the Red Devils.

Jadon Sancho was on the books of city rivals Manchester City before he made the decision to leave the Premier League champions in search of regular first team opportunities.

The Three Lions of England winger signed for Borussia Dortmund in 2017 and that decision has been the right one for his career.

Sancho became the youngest player to scored 25 league goals in the German Bundesliga earlier this season. He has scored 13 goals and added 13 assists in 20 league matches.

He has been able to form a potent partnership with new Borussia Dortmund signing Erling Haaland. Both players showed their potent partnership during the Champions League last 16 first leg clash at home to French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Borussia Dortmund beat PSG 2-1 to hold a slender advantage ahead of the second leg billed for next month with Erling Haaland netting twice.

Jadon Sancho is a perfect fit for Manchester United in the following ways:

Quality

Jadon Sancho is a step up in quality in comparison to the wingers at Manchester United at the moment. The Englishman has more quality than the Manchester United options like Daniel James, Juan Manuel Mata etc.

Goals and Assists

Jadon Sancho will add more goals and assists to the Manchester United attack. He has scored 16 goals in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund this season in addition to providing 14 goals to the other Borussia Dortmund players.
