United close to securing Perisic fee

Ivan Perisic is keen on a move to Manchester United.

Manchester United and Inter Milan are close to agreeing on a fee for Ivan Perisic ahead of a long-awaited move to Old Trafford.

According to Sky Sports, the two clubs are closing in on an agreement for Ivan Perisic to join Mourinho’s side, although the winger’s fee has been a sticking point, stalling negotiations for his move to Old Trafford.

The Italian side are holding out for £48 million, with the Croatian unwilling to fly to China with the rest of the squad ahead of their pre-season tour.

Mourinho is keen to bring in the 28-year-old, which suggests the Red Devils will finally cave and meet Inter’s asking price. Perisic would become United’s third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku
