Manchester United want to sign Ivan Perisic before letting Anthony Martial leave the club this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are targeting a deal for the Inter Milan winger after having been heavily linked with a move to sign Perisic last summer.

According to the same story, Manchester United want a transfer fee of at least £70m for Martial, who struggled to hold down a regular starting spot last season.

The attacker is being touted as a target for both Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich ahead of next season.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings before the transfer window closes on 9 August as Jose Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but Mourinho will be aiming for his side to be among the main challengers for the title next term.

Martial’s future at Old Trafford has been a constant source of speculation this summer amid claims that he wants to quit Manchester United in search of regular playing time.
