Manchester United have been priced out of deals to sign Ivan Perisic and Willian this summer, reporter Duncan Castles has claimed.

The Red Devils are in the market to sign a new winger in the summer transfer window to improve Mourinho’s options out wide.

Manchester United were initially linked with a move to sign Wales international Gareth Bale from La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Bale, though, is expected to commit his future to Real Madrid following the appointment of Julen Lopetegui as Zinedine Zidane’s replacement.

Chelsea FC star Willian has been regularly linked with a move to Manchester United to reunite with Jose Mourinho.

The Brazil international, though, is rumoured to be valued at around £65m to raise questions about whether Man United can afford a deal.

The Red Devils have also been touted with an interest in a deal to sign Croatia star Ivan Perisic from Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Sunday Times reporter Castles believes Manchester United can’t afford to sign Perisic or Willian this summer.

“He wants to bring a winger in now,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast. “One that can play on the right side of attack.

“Willian would be an option. He has been told he is too expwnsive. Perisic is another option but again he has been told he is too expensive.”

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League last term but ended up a long way behind champions Manchester City.
