Wayne Rooney to join either Manchester City or Chelsea

After days of gossip, rumors and whispers, the prodigal English striker Wayne Rooney is thought to have told Manchester United manager SIR Alex Ferguson that he does not wish to sign a new deal with the club.

Rooney's relationship with Scottish manager has not been good in recent times, when the latter came up with comments concerning Rooney's ankle injury. This grew bitter when he was benched during the Man U's 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion. This was supposed to be the reason behind Rooney's decision to leave Old Trafford. And the Manchester United boss finally made it clear at a press conference on Tuesday by confirming that the forward is looking to leave the Red Devils.

With Rooney's exit two years before his contract lapse date with Man U, football club giants are getting ready to bid for the star striker. Both the Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are ready to offer £25 million to pull Rooney to their side. But there has also been some speculation that he might make a shock move to bitter rivals Manchester City or even Chelsea. Manchester City is ready to welcome Rooney with a red carpet and a weekly salary of £250,000 worth £60million over 5 years starting January, 2011.

Jose Mourinho wants Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid Coach

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has told reporters that he wants the former French Football legend Zinedine Zidane close to the pitch. Yes, he wants Zidane to become as an assistant coach for the team rather than to concentrate on his role as an adviser to the club president Florentino Perez.

Zidane, the 3-time 'World player of the year' who retired from professional football after 2006 World Cup final, is a legend at the Bernabeu after his famous goal for Real Madrid at the 2002 European Cup final against Bayer Leverkusen. He has been working as a special adviser to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez since June 2009.

Mourinho is pretty sure he can convince the former French soccer icon Zidane to join him as a part of the Portuguese’s coaching setup at the Bernabeu. He believes Zidane's ample experience could possibly be a beacon of guidance for the players. Mourinho is hoping that his desire to join hands with the playmaking hero on the training ground will come true soon.

Zidane, however, has been repeatedly saying he does not want to be a manager. He believes reckons Mourinho is exactly the type of coach Real Madrid required. He said 'with a great coach and star palyers Real Madrid can bring home the cup'.

World's Most Expensive Cheese Sandwich

A Michelin-starred chef has unveiled the world's most expensive cheese sandwich - which carries a whopping price tag of £110. The delicacy was created by celebrity chef Martin Blunos, who hand-crafted the luxury snack using cheddar blended with expensive white truffles. It is dressed with 100-year-old balsamic vinegar and the sourdough bread - which costs £5 alone - is sprinkled with powdered E175. That's gold dust to you and me. The gourmet dish is the main attraction at the Frome Cheese Show in Somerset where the Food Poker star is judging a sandwich-making competition.

Blunos worked with expert cheese-makers at local west country producer Pilgrim's Choice to create the special white truffle blend, which gives the sandwich its hefty price tag. He said: "We Brits are known to love our cheese sandwiches, and here's one that not only comes with a royal price tag but is fit for the banqueting table. 'The white truffle fuses beautifully with the West Country Farmhouse Cheddar and the edible gold leaf gives it a really special look.' 'In fact, washed down with a bottle of Krug, what more could you want?'

Blunos selected the highest quality ingredients to create the double-layered dish. He worked with experienced cheddar producers at Pilgrim's Choice to create the bespoke white truffle cheese, which itself costs £92. Celebrity chef Martin Blunos with the world's most expensive cheese sandwich. He hand-crafted the sandwich using cheddar blended with expensive white truffles. The chef used a £5 loaf of sourdough dressed with extra virgin olive oil and then layered cheese, slices of quail's egg, heirloom black tomato, epicure apple, and fresh figs.

He added dainty mustard red frills, pea shoots and red amaranth for a salad layer and topped the whole masterpiece with edible gold dust. The cost of the entire sandwich put together runs to £111.95. There is no current official world record for the most expensive cheese sandwich but Blunos and Pilgrim's have applied to the Guinness book to have their sandwich recognised. The standing record for the most expensive commercially available sandwich is the von Essen Platinum Club Sandwich, which was made at the Cliveden House hotel in Taplow, Berkshire. It featured Iberico ham, poulet de Bresse, white truffles, quail eggs, semi-dried tomatoes and fermented sour dough bread, weighed half a kilogram, and cost £100. It's probably a little extra if you want it toasted.
