    In betting the house on 19-year-old Monaco forward Anthony Martial, Manchester United have emphasised the English Premier League's standing as the financial ogre of European football. United's decision to gamble a reported £36 million ($55.1 million, 49 million euros) on a player with only 52 league games to his name has sparked incredulity on both sides of the Channel. British tabloid The Sun rechristened the 20-time English champions "MADchester United", while The Times said the deal -- a world-record for a teenage player -- was "the latest sign of panic buying at Old Trafford".

    A controversial new proposal to take Hong Kong's beloved trams off the streets has sparked a wave of anger from residents who fear losing track of the city's past.
