Manchester United are looking to capitalise on a newly discovered piece of information to sign one of their transfer targets for a price below his club’s valuation.
The Red Devils were given a tip about Inter Milan’s current struggle to meet up with the Financial Fair Play Rule set by UEFA. According to reports, Inter Milan need to get a credit of at least £26 million by the 30th of June to balance their books and could be forced to sell one of their star men for around that sum.
Manchester United are interested in signing their winger Ivan Perisic, but the Red Devils have been put off by the Italian’s £48 million valuation of the Croatian so far. They are now set to pounce with a bid of £26 million and hope that Inter will accept the offer out of desperation.
The Suning Sports group, who are the new owners of Inter Milan, are looking to balance the books this summer ahead of the new season, which they still need to strengthen the squad in preparation for.
Jose Mourinho has submitted his list of targets to Ed Woodward, and it is believed that Perisic is among the players that the Portuguese manager has asked for, as he hopes to add the former Borussia Dortmund man to his team.
