Manchester United still want to sign Ivan Perisic and the Inter Milan winger is eager to move to Old Trafford, Kaveh Solhekol has revealed.

The Red Devils have been regularly linked with a move to sign the Croatia international throughout the summer transfer window so far.

The 28-year-old was initially rumoured to be keen on a switch to Old Trafford but Manchester United have been unable to agree a transfer fee with Inter Milan.

Manchester United temporarily switched their focus to Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale earlier this month to dampen talk of Perisic completing a move to the Red Devils.

However, the Wales international isn’t expected to leave the La Liga giants this summer to prompt Manchester United to revert to their original target.

Inter Milan have ruled out the attacking midfielder leaving the San Siro this summer and the Serie A giants wants Perisic to sign a new contract.

However, Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol has provided a fresh update on the Perisic transfer saga to suggest the summer deal could still materialise.

“Manchester United want him, he wants to come to United and Inter want him to sign a new deal,” Solhekol told Sky Sports News on Thursday morning.

Manchester United have signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.
