United confirm Morata interest, but…

Transfer market expert Graham Hunter says striker Alvaro Morata should sign for Chelsea this summer. However, the 20-time English champions' offer fell short of the Spanish capital club's valuation of €80m (£70.2m, $90.7m).

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player. I am nobody to speak about players from Real Madrid", the former Blancos boss was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"They've identified for a long time that his development at Juventus, his training at Madrid and the fact that he's a consistent trophy victor at a very young age, meant that they thought he was the right player".

The Red Devils were strongly linked with a move for Madrid frontman Morata after Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced he would be leaving the club once his contract expired, as per the Express. Mourinho confirmed United's interest in the striker, but Real's reluctance to come to an "economic agreement" resulted in the deal not going through.

Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) Given Daily News Sentiment Rating of 0.37
FBR & Co restated a "buy" rating and issued a $107.50 price target on shares of Time Warner in a report on Friday, April 7th. Now Time Warner Inc.'s current price is $10.87 shy of the official highest sell-side analyst price target on Wall Street.

But after growing frustrated with their attempts to sign the 24-year-old they opted to buy Romelu Lukaku from Everton for £75m instead.

The Belgium worldwide was wanted by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

United were only willing to go as high as £60m for the Spaniard but Real Madrid wanted around £75m as they looked to fund a move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe.

The same article states that Conte is still hoping to improve his squad with five new additions ahead of Chelsea's return to the Champions League next season after winning the Premier League title last term.
