Manchester United will have to pay an inflated transfer fee to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic this summer, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Manchester United are keen to sign the Croatia international to add some genuine quality on the wing.

The same article states that Perisic’s excellent performances in the World Cup mean that Inter will ask for even more in the summer transfer window.

According to the same story, the Serie A giants are unlikely to sell the Croatian midfielder ahead of the new season despite Manchester United’s interest.

The former Wolfsburg midfielder was very close to a move to the Red Devils last season but Manchester United couldn’t agree a fee with Inter Milan for the Croatian star.

Perisic scored Croatia’s equaliser in a 2-1 extra-time win over England to set up a final meeting with France in Moscow.

He also found the net in Croatia’s 4-2 loss to France in the World Cup final to see his stock rise in the summer transfer window.

The Croatian winger has previously played for Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg and Club Brugge.

Manchester United have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot in the summer transfer window so far.
