Manchester United are running out of time to complete a deal to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan, Kaveh Solhekol has claimed.

Jose Mourinho continues to be linked with a raid on his former club as Manchester United look to sign the Croatia international before the close of the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have reportedly made a number of attempts to sign the 28-year-old attacker but Manchester United haven’t matched Inter Milan’s asking price.

The Serie A giants are now hoping to convince Perisic to sign a new long-term contract to extend his stay at the San Siro and end talk of a move to Manchester United.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol revealed that Manchester United still want to sign the Croatian winger despite Inter Milan’s reluctance to sell.

“Let’s stay at Manchester United,” Solhekol told Sky Sports News on Friday morning.

“A story which has been rumbling on and on all summer of course is Ivan Perisic, the winger that Jose Mourinho wants.

“Manchester United want him, he wants to come and the clubs can’t agree a fee. Inter are now trying to get him to sign a new deal.

“He was outstanding in Inter’s 3-0 win against Fiorentina on Sunday. Time is running out for United to make a late move.”

The Red Devils have been in scintillating form to start the 2017-18 season after Manchester United eased to 4-0 victories over West Ham United and Swansea City.

Romelu Lukaku has already scored three goals in two Premier League games since his £75m move to Old Trafford from Everton last month.

France duo Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have both chipped in with two goals to help the Red Devils to hoist themselves to the top of the Premier League table.
