Manchester United have reportedly made another enquiry for Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic over a potential transfer to Old Trafford this summer.
Perisic has been constantly mooted to make a switch to the Theatre Of Dreams, but Inter have been playing hard ball, and are said to be demanding £44 million for their prized winger.
The Serie A side has already snubbed United’s initial £26 million bid for the Croatian, but Jose Mourinho, who is looking to add considerable firepower to his line-up, seems set to sign Perisic this season. The 28-year-old has also expressed his commendation for the Portuguese in return.
The Nerazzurri were reported to be under Financial Fair Play’s debt of £26 million, and thus, were under a huge pressure to make the payment. But now, having paid off the money they owed, Inter are said to be sticking firmly to their initial evaluation of £44 million for their highly-rated winger.
As per the recent revelation by Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, the Red Devils are now willing to offer Inter more money, after they resumed the negotiations yesterday. However, the new offer will not be submitted immediately, but would rather be made later on.
