Manchester United are still confident of completing a deal to sign Nemanja Matic and Ivan Perisic this summer, according to reports.

Website The Gambling Times is reporting that the Red Devils are still hoping to make two more signings in the summer transfer window before deadline day next month.

The same article states that Manchester United are close to concluding a deal to sign the Croatia international from Inter Milan despite protracted negotiations throughout the summer.

According to the report, the Red Devils have also entered into discussions with the Premier League champions about reuniting Matic with his former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move to sign a defensive midfielder as Mourinho looks to reinforce his squad with greater depth ahead of a return to the Champions League.

The Red Devils started their summer spending with a £30.7m deal from Portuguese champions Benfica last month.

Manchester United managed to usurp Premier League champions Chelsea to a deal to sign Romelu Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton.
