According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Manchester United have reopened talks with Inter Milan over the signing of Ivan Perisic.
Manchester United’s pursuit of Ivan Perisic this summer has been well documented and manager Jose Mourinho dropped a huge hint recently that he is still interested in signing the Croatian international by stating that only 75% of his intended summer transfer dealings have taken place so far.
Mourinho’s comments seemed like a cryptic hint directed at the Manchester United board to attempt to secure the services of Perisic before the end of the summer transfer window and now according to reports from the Daily Mirror, claims are being made that the Red Devils hierarchy is doing just that.
United deal-maker Ed Woodward is said to have ramped up the efforts to sign Perisic by reopening talks with the player’s agent Fali Ramadani and it is believed that the Premier League giants are looking to push Inter to get the deal done even though manager of the Italian side, Luciano Spalletti, stated recently that the 28-year-old is not leaving San Siro.
The report states that United are now willing to meet Inter’s £48million asking price for Perisic after not agreeing to do so earlier on into the window and the transfer finally coming into fruition looks a real possibility.
