COMMENT: It's a mess. Luke Shaw and Manchester United. Was there a bigger career plummet over the last year? He was the golden boy. The best of his generation. Potentially the best left-back of England's modern era. Or so they said. This wasn't fans making these claims, but icons. Gary Neville said as much. As did his old United pal Rio Ferdinand. But now...? The career's in turmoil. A clean slate? A fresh start in preseason? Well, that's been wrote off. Ankle surgery means he'll miss the bulk of preseason.
COMMENT: 425,000 quid a week. 425,000 a week to sign with Bayern Munich. For Arsenal fans, there's actually hope in Alexis Sanchez's crazy demand put to Rummenigge and co last week. Of course they were going to say 'no'. Bayern's a bank, sure. But even they wouldn't consider such terms - especially for a player yet to reach the Ballon d'Or dais. But Alexis was taking the mick. It was a throw away gesture. The Chilean doesn't want to live in Munich. He has no interest in playing for Bayern.
COMMENT: A bombshell. Out of nowhere. He wants out. Cristiano Ronaldo. An angry Cristiano Ronaldo. 'Sell me', he's told Real Madrid. And as the world shakes, the calmest man in the room is one Florentino Perez... Okay, Ronaldo's meltdown was unexpected. And there is an inconvenience. But there's no panic from Florentino. As far as the Real president is concerned, he holds all the cards.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
