Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho held his first news conference of the summer yesterday at UCLA, where the team is now training for their summer exhibition tour.

The Spanish giants want £80million for the striker, a fee Antonio Conte has asked the Blues to pay.

Mourinho, who is open to re-signing Ibrahimovic when he returns to full fitness, believes his squad needs more additions to cope with returning to the Champions League, especially as he has a number of long-term absentees. "It's understandable", Mourinho said from United's training camp at UCLA in Los Angeles ahead of the pre-season firiendly with LA Galaxy on Sunday.

The west London side were thought to be closing in on a deal to sign Romelu Lukaku before the Everton striker completed a surprise £75m switch to Manchester United.

Transfer market expert Graham Hunter says striker Alvaro Morata should sign for Chelsea this summer. We need more, we wanted four, so I would say 50 per cent of the job is done, but I don't want to say that because everything is so hard.

It was accompanied by photographs of the complainant wearing swimming shorts on a beach, at a beachside bar and in the sea. The prince complained to the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso), which upheld the complaint.

"Yes, we have had interest, that is obvious and it's public".

"I do not criticize Madrid and I am not going to criticize my board because my board has made the offer and they have tried to reach an agreement during a time, and they didn't come to an agreement".

"We need two more players I would say, at least one, but I don't want to say Matic or any other name because I don't think it's correct".

The 24-year-old striker is now with Real Madrid in the United States for their pre-season preparations and there are suggestions that Zinedine Zidane would not mind having him in his squad next term.

Sources close to the club claim United understand Real are carrying a huge wage bill and would struggle to bring in De Gea.
