Manchester United are close to agreeing a deal to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan this summer, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Croatian winger throughout the summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his attacking options at Old Trafford.

However, there is yet to be any official confirmation of a deal and Mourinho himself replied “no idea” when asked if a deal for Perisic was close on Monday night.

Now, Sky Sports News reporter Sheth says that a deal for Perisic to move to Old Trafford is now edging closer towards completion as the Red Devils close in on their third signing of the summer.

Speaking on Sky Sports News on Tuesday morning, Sheth said: “Let’s start with Manchester United and developments with Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

“We are told that a compromise on a fee is close. Are Inter ready to relax their £48m asking price?

“In another development, Perisic is expected to travel for Inter’s pre-season tour of China.”

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

The Red Devils are likely to want to significantly bolster their squad this summer as they prepare for a return to the Champions League following their Europa League triumph last term.
