Would Alvaro Morata be a Good Signing for Manchester United?

The Telegraph are reporting that Manchester United have agreed terms with Alvaro Morata ahead of a potential summer move to Old Trafford. They have yet to agree a fee with Real Madrid, but it is clear that the Spaniard is the club's priority target to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been released in recent days.

A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

Soon after the confirmation that Manchester United would not be extending the services of 35-year old center-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, my mind raced back to early June last year, when all eyes were on France and the European Championships - and how excited I was at the thought of a certain Swede holding the famous red shirt and smiling at the cameras, exuding the aura of a king arriving at the battlefield he has yet to conquer.

This season there seems to be very little excitement left in the Premier League. The manner in which Chelsea have managed to dominate the league has ensured that there is very little chance involved in deciding the eventual winner of the league. Other teams and their fans do try to manufacture excitement – will Manchester United pip Liverpool to the fourth place in the league? Will Everton pip them both? Will Sunderland get out of jail again? Which of the …

How Rashford's season emphasises the youth development problems England has

The appointment of Jose Mourinho raised concerns about the development of Marcus Rashford last summer. Despite the Manchester United manager's claims about bringing his ability to filter through young players at previous clubs, he has been known to rely on experienced players throughout his coaching career.
