Perisic tells Inter he wants to leave after agreeing Man Utd terms

As things stand, Inter Milan still need to raise €30m by the end of the month in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, and the sale of Perisic is meant to give them the money required.

Jose Mourinho is looking to strengthen his squad this summer ahead of United's return to the Champions League and Perisic has emerged as a key target in recent weeks.

Corriere dello Sport says United boss Jose Mourinho has been working personally on a deal for the Croatia global.

The 28-year-old had a decent season in 2016-17, netting 11 goals and providing eight assists in Serie A for an Inter side that struggled as they finished seventh, per WhoScored.com.

Internazionale's Ivan Perisic is hugely keen and excited to play for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, according to the Independent.

The 28-year-old has always been "desperate" for the move to United, having been linked with the club during his days in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg, and also nearly exactly fits Jose Mourinho's profile of a hard-working wide attacking player, akin to his ideal for the role, Willian.

Here is how Manchester United will line up with Perisic.

After seeing an initial £36m offer rebuffed by Inter Milan for Ivan Perisic, reports in Italy believe that the Red Devils are primed to up their offer to a staggering £44m, a bid they feel will be enough to tempt the Italian giants into selling.

Rumour has it that while Perisic is seemingly keen on making the switch to Old Trafford, Inter and Manchester United are still up to €15m apart in their respective valuations of the player.
