Higuain is out of favour at Real Madrid and while there has been no official contact between the two clubs, Chelsea are monitoring the situation.

Paris Saint-Germain and River Plate are also considering a move for the 24-year-old striker.

Chelsea are preparing a £30million bid to land Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Torres, who signed for the west London club in a £50m deal in January, could be sold when the transfer window re-opens next month.

Stocks: Big check-up this week from corporate earnings

We already know it’s taking a toll on consumer-focused companies. Lloyd has put his money in European stocks, which are rallying a ton this year.

Even fears about a Federal Reserve interest rate hike appear to be calming a bit. The Nasdaq is up 4% this year, well above where the SP 500 and Dow are for 2015.

“I don’t think the dollar’s run is over and there’s a lagging impact to that” on earnings, says Matt Lloyd, chief investment strategist at Advisors Asset Management. Investors always want good news, but they are especially on edge after the Dow’s 279 point drop Friday.

The dollar gained a lot of value in the first three months this year, making it more expensive for U.S. The consensus among Wall Street experts and economists is that spending will warm up alongside rising temperatures.

Will tech titans take the crown? If restaurants and airlines fall flat, the markets still have hope because tech stocks may come to the rescue. The dollar affects some of these companies, such as Microsoft, but advertising is the bulk of revenue for many.

This week’s tech stocks should perform well compared to other sectors, but don’t expect Netflix-like performance, Lloyd says.

There are two major themes popping up again and again in earnings: the harsh winter weather and strong U.S. Tech and social media businesses have a big week ahead too and give a good sense of where advertising and consumer dollars are (and aren’t) going.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil eyes Chelsea SLIP UP in Premier League title race | Football | Sport

The Gunners can, however, cut the deficit next Sunday when they host Jose Mourinho’s men at the Emirates.

“Our goal is to win every game until the end of the season, whether it be in the FA Cup or Premier League.

“It is a bit frustrating really, because we have to hope Chelsea slip up, but all we can do is focus on our game.”

The chances of Arsenal overtaking leaders Chelsea look slim as they trail the Blues by seven points with one game less to play.

But Ozil claims all his side can do is to concentrate on continuing their impressive run of form.

“It would be wrong to talk about winning the title, because it is not in our hands,” the German said.

In gritty town on Thai-Cambodia border, Asia’s soccer gambling obsession is on display

The Premier League is regarded as fix-proof, but the Italian, Russian and smaller Asian leagues are suspect. “The important thing is we can recognize them.”

Bookmakers and bettors alike in Poipet are aware that some matches are fixed, but such information is closely held by the syndicates and doesn’t reach ordinary gamblers. “It’s a huge market, and easy to hide money.”

Bayern to subsidise tickets for cup tie at Arsenal

Bayern have therefore decided to subsidise the tickets for the away game at Arsenal.

“It’s particularly noteworthy that a large number of Bayern fans support the team not only at the high points but also at every away game.

(Writing by Brian Homewood in Berne; Editing by John O’Brien)

Ticket prices for the home tie against Arsenal range from 35 to 100 euros. Tickets for away fans are at the lower end of the price range.

Bayern said the decision, which would cost the club 90,000 euros, was a sign of gratitude to its fans and demonstrated the importance to the team of having a vocal backing at all games.


Bayern charge home fans between 15 euros for a standing place and 70 euros for the most expensive seats at home matches in the Bundesliga.

The European champions said that their fans would pay only 45 euros (£37.22) to watch the round of 16 match in London instead of the roughly 75 euros charged by the Premier League club.

“This is intended to represent a small thank you for the great support of the followers in the past calendar year 2013.”

(Reuters) – Bayern Munich will subsidise fans who buy tickets for their Champions League first leg tie away to Arsenal, where prices are higher than in Germany.

“Bayern has thrilled the world of European football not only by the outstanding performance and consistency of its team, but also by the fantastic and vocal support of its fans,” the club said in a statement.

Allergic Reaction to Food while Traveling

Or they think if they pick the peanuts out, then I can still eat the dish.

Of course, nowhere is risk-free but, like myself, many allergic travelers find certain destinations easier to manage than others.

That doesn’t mean you have to write off any destination.

Lost in translation

In countries where it’s culturally unacceptable to refuse a guest’s requests or where severe allergies are rare, requests can be misunderstood.

korea street foodIf in doubt, it’s probably best to skip the street food. cities for allergy sufferers

“There are whole shops dedicated to gluten-free products and many restaurants offer gluten-free classics such as gluten-free pizza, tiramisu and even a gluten- and nut-free ice cream cone to have my gelato in!” she reports.

“Some cheeses in France have pistachio nuts in them and Lupin flour is more commonly used in bakery items in European countries like France and The Netherlands,” Beresford warns.

For many travelers who suffer allergic reactions, the best travel destination is simply the safest destination — a country where allergens are sparse, food hygiene is excellent, public allergy awareness is high and restaurant staff are happy to cater to special needs.

The Canadian government’s recent decision to order nut-free buffer zones on Air Canada flights (the first government in the world to make such a stand) is another plus for allergy sufferers.

Despite fretting about the pasta-heavy cuisine, allergy blogger and Coeliac Disease sufferer Sian Drew found Italy a paradise for those avoiding gluten.

Sarah Beresford, communications manager for The Anaphylaxis Campaign, also considers Canada (along with the United States, Australia and Europe) the lowest risk destination for allergy sufferers, thanks to strict food preparation and labeling regulations, as well as a high level of allergy awareness.

As a travel writer who suffers from a severe peanut and tree nut allergy, my urge for cultural immersion often pushes the boundaries of my comfort zone.

A worthwhile risk

She advises caution when traveling to “places like Thailand, China and Vietnam, where nuts and fish are frequently used in recipes and street food is more prevalent, so you are less likely to know what it contains.”

Also on CNN: Tips for traveling with allergies

Meals in Thailand, where crushed peanuts sneak their way into everything from pad Thai to soup garnish, are like a nerve-racking game of edible Russian roulette.

Ordering an otherwise safe pasta dish in Turkey and having it served with an inexplicable topping of ground pistachio is just plain annoying.

“It’s hard for some to comprehend the severity of my illness simply because they have either never heard of it or it’s very uncommon for people [in their country] to have food allergies, let alone allergies that could kill you.”

The perils of exotic cuisine

“When I’m in Peru, Jordan or even in Spain, I’ll explain that I cannot eat peanuts and [locals] think it’s by choice,” says travel blogger and peanut allergy sufferer Elizabeth Carlson. Selecting safe foods in your home country is easy, but navigating a foreign menu can be a minefield of unexpected ingredients.

Ultimately, most sufferers agree that traveling with food allergies is a worthwhile risk and that even higher risk destinations can be managed as long as they plan ahead and prepare for all eventualities.

Some even find their allergy inspires them to explore, such as Drew, who finds the time spent researching restaurants and local cuisine adds a unique element to her trips.

Forget slurping on the deadly tentacles of a Sannakji octopus or munching a fried scorpion: the deadliest morsel that’s ever passed between my lips was an innocuous steamed dumpling coated in powdered peanut.

Experience has taught me how to minimize the risks, but I find traveling in some countries easier than others.. Carlson notes the advantages of more casual eating.

Japan, where nuts are rarely used, is a safe haven where I can be let loose on the sushi bar with abandon.

“I eat a lot of street food when I travel, which is great because you get to see the food being cooked right in front of you, and it’s easier to talk one on one with the cook,” she says.

“We often visit specific gluten-free restaurants and shops that are usually not located in the center of town, making our city tours slightly more local than the usual tourist trail,” she says.

Also on CNN: Worst U.S.

Traveling in developing countries can pose more risks due to the lack of labeling and the difficulty of tracing food ingredients, although the limited food products available might make it easier to avoid a single allergen.

thai soupThailand’s spicy prawn soup, tom yam kung — delicious, and for allergy sufferers, dangerous. “Often they don’t understand the difference between peanuts and other nuts, or that I can’t even eat something that has been cooked in the same pan as a peanut dish. The biggest challenge for allergy sufferers heading overseas is communication, so it’s no surprise that English-speaking countries top the list of safe destinations.

While carrying translation cards — available from Allergy UK — can help bridge the language barrier, explaining your needs in the local language sometimes isn’t enough.

Food allergy blogger Jenny Kales of singles out Canada as a preferred destination for her multiple-allergic family, remarking that “their laws and practices with regard to awareness, food allergy labeling and restaurant preparedness are better than in the U.S.”

“Allergies should not hold anyone back, because you can make a destination work for you,” says Kale.

Even countries where street food is abundant aren’t necessarily verboten

Absent from the battle were the Shiite Muslim militias that played a key role when government forces recently retook the city of Tikrit, about 80 miles north of Baghdad. Yesterday was very bad; army and police personnel retreated,” said one provincial official on Thursday. “But we are against bad practices, regardless of who commits these acts, whether they are security forces or the Shiite militias.”

“They are some of the most disciplined fighters among the militias, and they will help us in the fight,” said the spokesman, Hikmat Suleiman, by phone from Baghdad..

Gen. He added that “preparations are underway to launch a large military operation to liberate” areas near Ramadi under Islamic State control.

In a meeting with the Iraqi community Thursday in Washington, he stressed that “Anbar is facing large pressure from [Islamic State] and we have thousands of youth fighting with us.”

However, a spokesman for Anbar’s governor said Thursday that militiamen loyal to radical Shiite cleric Muqtada Sadr, dubbed “The Peace Brigades,” were stationed in areas between Ramadi and the nearby city of Fallouja to support the government’s military campaign.

On Wednesday, head of the Anbar provincial council Sabah Karhoot, along with Gov. Thousands of Shiite men joined regular military units to wrest control from the Islamic State, which had seized the city last June.

Although the Shiite militias, known as Popular Mobilization Units, spearheaded the Tikrit offensive, many Sunni officials were wary of their participation in Anbar, especially after allegations of sectarian-driven abuses by militiamen against Tikrit’s Sunni population.

Iraqi forces battled Islamic State fighters for control of Ramadi on Thursday, officials said, attempting to thwart the militant group’s latest bid to overrun government-held areas of Anbar province.

The offensive on Ramadi comes as Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Abadi visits the U.S. “But today there were some good airstrikes by coalition forces and the Iraqi forces regained the main areas in Ramadi and stopped the advance” of the militants.

“Anyone who wishes to fight for Anbar is welcome to do so under the banner of the Iraqi forces, which reports directly to the prime minister’s office,” said the official from Anbar. The latest assault by the militants has been the most forceful, however, as they wrested control of areas to the north and east of the city on Wednesday.

Saad Maan, spokesman for the Iraqi Joint Operations Command, insisted Thursday that the city was “completely in the hands of the security forces,” Iraqi state news Al Iraqiya reported. Popular Mobilization spokesman Karim Noori said negotiations were ongoing to bring in the militias to the Anbar fight, but they were still waiting for an “official call for help” from provincial officials.

“The regular security forces are not up to the job,” Noori warned in a telephone interview Thursday. “Every area without the Popular Mobilization fighters will fall to Daesh,” he added, using the Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with the media.

He also reported many refugees had left Ramadi and its surrounding areas, but said that “only a very small number of them are allowed into Baghdad because of security concerns.”

Anbar officials, however, said the city was not yet fully secure but that Iraqi troops had control of the main roads and government compounds.
