David Silva will be fit for Manchester City's opening game of the season against Brighton - but Benjamin Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan are both losing their race to be ready for the start of the campaign. Silva is yet to play a part in City’s pre-season tour here in the US after suffering a groin injury. The Spaniard couldn’t even take part in a light drill during a community event in East LA this week as he continues his recovery.
Pep Guardiola has given the clearest indication yet that he will sign a new contract at Manchester City. The Catalan has spent more than £200m this summer overhauling his squad - and still intends to make up to three more signings before the transfer closes next month. He has made a point of targeting players in their early to mid 20s with a view to building a team that can dominate for the next five years.
Manchester United have been given fresh encouragement they could secure a late deal for Gareth Bale after Zinedine Zidane refused to rule out the Welshman’s departure this summer. United are long-term admirers of Bale - but believed they had no chance of luring him away from Real Madrid. But there is growing belief he could make way as the Champions League winners step up their attempts to sign Kylian Mbappe in a world-record deal.
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".
