I advised United to sign Mbappe, Jesus - Giggs
Ryan Giggs joins Gary Neville as a Manchester United club legend to call out the transfer spending of their former club this week. United did not make a formal bid to sign Jesus , who joined City from Brazilian side Palmeiras in a £27 million deal past year .


The Steelers (11-3) released Harrison, 39, on Saturday after a season in which his playing time severely diminished while the wins kept piling up. He's only played five games in 2017, making no starts, in just 40 snaps over the season. Excluding a one-year stint with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013, he's played for Pittsburgh for his whole career. Without any role on special teams and virtually nothing on defense even when active, the Steelers made the cold, calculated decision to let him go. He saw steady playtime in 2004 but it wasn't until 2007, already 29 years old, where he became the full-time guy. In fact, he had totaled just three tackles and a sack that all came against the Cincinnati Bengals on October 22 while making an appearance in five games. "It's just the business of the NFL", Parise told ESPN's Josina Anderson.
