Manchester United have made a breakthrough in their bid to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Red Devils are finally close to completing a deal to sign the 28-year-old winger from the Italian club.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a bid to sign Perisic from Inter this summer but a deal has not yet been confirmed.

Now, the same story is claiming that a deal for Manchester United to wrap up Perisic as their third summer signing is due to be confirmed in the next few days.

The article also claims that personal terms with the player had already been agreed as Manchester United look to confirm the arrival of Perisic this week.

The story, written by Miguel Delaney, also claims that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho sees Perisic as a “key signing” for the Red Devils ahead of the Portuguese coach’s second campaign in charge at the club.

Manchester United confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton last week following the arrival of defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
