In the latest development on Ivan Perisic’s proposed transfer from Inter Milan to Manchester United, the Red Devils are confident of completing the signing of the winger this week.
The two clubs have been locked down in negotiations for a while now, with Inter Milan demanding £10 million more than what Manchester United consider the right valuation.
Perisic has been a star player for the Milan side since he joined them from Wolfsburg in 2015, despite some inconsistent performance last season, Jose Mourinho still considers him a great wide man. The Portuguese manager is looking to bolster his supply lines after completing the signing of Romelu Lukaku.
New Inter Milan manager Luciano Spaletti has encouraged his star players to stay focused on the job at hand and specifically said he does not expect Perisic to leave the San Siro this summer. The Croatian is expected to ask the club to allow him to join the Red Devils, but Spaletti is hopeful that it does not get to that point.
Manchester United are confident of completing the deal this week despite not being willing to meet Inter Milan’s asking price of £50 million.
