Default Re: Ivan Perisic

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants 44m Inter star Ivan Perisic in time for July's pre-season tour of United States

* Manchester United are keen on signing Inter Milan's star winger Ivan Perisic
* Jose Mourinho wants Perisic in his squad in time for the United States trip
* Inter and United are in contact over a transfer for the Croatia international
* United made Benfica's Victor Lindelof their first summer signing for 31m


Manchester United are to sign 44million Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic within weeks.

Jose Mourinho sees the Inter Milan winger, 28, as a key part of a summer strengthening programme in which the Premier League club want to add at least four players to the ranks.

No fee has been agreed but initial contact has been made between the clubs and Sportsmail understands the Portuguese wants Perisic in his squad in time for their pre-season trip to America next month.


Jose Mourinho sees Inter's Ivan Perisic as a key part of his recruitment push at Old Trafford. The Premier League giants are to sign 44million Inter Milan winger Perisic within weeks

A source close to the potential move say it could happen sooner rather than later. 'There's a keenness to get it done. We're looking at it going through within weeks.'

Mourinho has already swooped for Benfica defender Victor Lindelof in a 30.7m move that was completed on Wednesday.

He also wants to add Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, in a bid to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but there is a fear at Old Trafford that any move for the forward could prompt the Spaniards to demand negotiation over goalkeeper David de Gea, a player they do not wish to lose.

The form of current goalkeeper Keylor Navas has prompted reports that Madrid have ended their pursuit of De Gea, who came close to joining the La Liga club in 2015 only for a last-minute administrational glitch to scupper the move.

However, United remain wary of a change of heart at the Bernabeu. Madrid are thought to want in excess of 75m for the striker, who United value at closer to 60m.

Croatia international Perisic is keen on a move to Manchester. He is well-travelled across Europe having played in Belgium, France and Germany as well as Italy.

During his time at Borussia Dortmund he clashed with then boss and current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp who, after the player complained about a lack of first-team action, said his behaviour 'belongs to the kindergarten'.

Inter, who are facing pressure to meet Financial Fair Play rules, are looking for a fee of around 44m for a player who cost them 14.5m when he signed from Wolfsburg in 2015.

United's valuation falls well short of that, although there is an air of confidence that a deal suitable to all parties can be struck.

Mourinho also wants a central midfielder, although Monaco star Fabinho, who can also play at right back, is not currently a target.

Speaking following the capture of Sweden international Lindelof, the manager hinted that the club need to press on in the transfer market.

'Our season last year showed us that we need options and quality to add depth to the squad and Victor is the first to join us this summer,' Mourinho said.
