Ivan Perisic included in Inter Milan's pre-season tour to China and Singapore as Manchester United transfer saga takes twist
Midfielder Perisic is closing in on a £44m move to Manchester United despite the Italian side’s reluctance to lose their front man.
United are said to have offered £39.5m for Perisic, plus £4.5m in add-ons, taking the total package to £44m for the Croatia international.
Inter fly out to the far east to face Schalkem Lyon, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
Asked for an update on the transfer after the 2-1 friendly win at Real Salt Lake, Jose Mourinho said as he left the press conference: “No idea. No idea my friend. No idea.”
Speaking to Sport Italia , Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti responded to the rumours by saying: “Perisic? You [journalists] know everything, it’s all out in the open.”
According to reports, the Nerazzurri are looking at Lazio star Keita Balde as a possible replacement for Perisic, should he move to Man United.
