Arsenal have William Saliba joining from St Etienne in the summer, as well as the option to make Pablo Mari’s loan from Flamengo permanent.Upamecano has made 29 appearances this season in all competitions, including six in the Champions League, as RB Leipzig have pushed Bayern and Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga.Tags: Bayern MunichDayot UpamecanoReal Madridlast_img read more

It will also enable foreign exchange traders to see all bids on daily offers.Byles said that the new foreign exchange trading platform is designed to create ‘more transparency in the market’.The Central Bank already has an intervention mechanism, the Foreign Exchange Intervention and Trading Tool, B-FXITT, which is tailored to offset market volatility.The announcement comes two weeks after the Jamaican dollar hit its lowest point in history, trading at more than 141- Jamaican dollars to 1 US dollar in mid-November.With a booming stock market and steady inflation rate, Byles reassured the public that the drastic slide in the value of the dollar was not a crisis.
