Luciano Spalletti gave a blunt response when asked if Ivan Perisic is set to leave Inter Milan to sign for Manchester United this summer.

The 28-year-old Croatia winger has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.

The latest reports suggest, however, that Manchester United are still yet to meet Inter’s asking price for the winger as they try to conclude a deal to sign Perisic.

Spalletti has been relentlessly questioned about Perisic’s future in recent days and the Inter Milan boss appeared to leave the door open for the player to leave the club when asked about his future on Saturday.

Spalletti is quoted as saying by ESPN: “With Perisic last year, we won nothing. What’s important is the team, not one player.”

Manchester United have only signed two players so far this summer – defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica and striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

The Red Devils are gearing up for a return to the Champions League next season after they won the Europa League and EFL Cup last term.
