Man Utd target Perisic to play for Inter Milan on Asia tour

Reports on Monday suggested that the Premier League club were close to finalising an agreement over a transfer, with Inter ready to accept a bid in the region of £40million. On Tuesday, Perisic returned to Milan from Croatia and was spotted at Inter's training ground.

The Nerazzurri are refusing to deviate from their £48m asking price unless United include a player to sweeten the deal. So Inter are under no pressure to accept offers that they regard as too low. The market is going in such a direction that many players are hard to get, not to say impossible.

The Manchester United boss is thought to be eager to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic, while the Serie A giants have an interest in Martial this summer.

But United, now in the USA on their pre-season tour, are said to be reluctant to lose Martial, whose cousin has also insisted the player's loyalties lie with his current employers.

"If he comes, then the likes of Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial have to step it up".

The fact that Inter also signed a winger in Keita Balde seemed to pave the path for Perisic's exit.

The Daily Star, citing Football Whispers as its source, says the German club are prepared to do business despite stating publicly that the 22-year central midfielder is not for sale.

The Frenchman's future at Old Trafford has come under the scanner in recent weeks, despite the club not wanting to see the player leave Manchester United in the transfer window.
