The Ivan Perisic’s transfer saga takes a new twist after he was included in Inter’s pre-season squad and he’ll join the Nerazzurri on tour in China.
Man United are on his trail for the last few weeks, and the player himself is open to a move to Old Trafford, but Inter are determined to keep him at San Siro. The £44 million-rated winger has been strongly linked to the Red Devils but the official offer from United is yet to be received, so it’s evident that this transfer story is far from concluded.
Perisic hoped to skip China trip and join Man United tour in the US instead, but Luciano Spalletti and Inter’s hierarchy are decisive to block the transfer at the moment. This decision will surely make Perisic’s move to United a bit harder, but is still on the cards, while Inter are still waiting for an official approach from the Red Devils, who must act quickly and meet £44 million asking price before the Nerazzurri lose patience.
Man United are still on the hunt for the third summer signing, but it looks that Perisic is the closest one to arrive, while Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier, and Radja Nainggolan are still far away from a potential move. However, today’s news emerged that United could hijack Liverpool’s move for Naby Keita from Leipzig.
