Manchester United’s proposed deal to sign Ivan Perisic won’t go through until Inter Milan appoint a new manager, according to reports in England.

BBC Sport are reporting that a deal to sign Perisic has been held up amid ongoing uncertainty about the next coach at the San Siro side.

The Red Devils were thought to be closing in on a deal to sign Perisic but Inter are still waiting to appoint a new coach following Stefano Piolo’s dismissal.

The Serie A giants are expected to appoint Luciano Spalletti as their new manager after a disappointing 2016-17 season for the former Champions League winners.

The same article states that Spaletti’s first job as Inter manager if he agrees to take charge of Inter will be to resolve Perisic’s future.

BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone took to Twitter to shed further light on Manchester United’s pursuit of Perisic in the summer transfer window.

Stone wrote: “There has been contact between Utd + Inter. But Perisic’s future can’t be clarified until new manager installed.”

There have been reports in the media in recent days linking Perisic with a possible move to Old Trafford, with the Croatian thought to be valued at around £45m.
