Man United want to complete third summer signing next week – report
Manchester United want to complete the signing of Ivan Perisic before Inter Milan head off on their pre-season tour next week, according to reports
Manchester United are hoping to conclude a deal to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic next week, according to reports in the English media.
The Guardian is reporting that the Red Devils want to complete the signature of the Croatia international before Inter Milan head off on their pre-season tour next Tuesday.
The same article states that Inter Milan value Perisic at around £49m but Manchester United believe the 28-year-old winger is worth a fee in the region of £40m.
As a result, the English media outlet are tipping the Red Devils to settle on a £45m fee to make attacker Perisic their third signing of the summer transfer window.
Manchester United signed Sweden international Victor Lindelof in a £30.7m deal from Portuguese champions Benfica last month as Mourinho bolstered his defensive options.
The Red Devils have also added Everton striker Romelu Lukaku to their squad in a £75m transfer deal despite Chelsea being favourites to sign the Belgium international.
Manchester United were 2-0 winners against Dutch giants Ajax in the Europa League final to secure a return to the Champions League next term.
