The talks between Manchester United and Inter Milan for the transfer of Ivan Perisic are going on really well.
However, if the Red Devils want the long-awaited transfer to be completed, they will have to lose Anthony Martial in a swap deal.
According to Italian publication La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Inter manager Luciano Spalletti is confident that Mourinho will give in to his ‘Martial demand’.
With rumour mill buzzing about the talented winger’s future every day, latest reports in Italy reveal that the talks are ongoing between the two clubs, with Anthony Martial still key to a deal.
Since arriving from Monaco in 2015, Martial has been blowing hot and cold, but the Frenchman had a great pre-season in America recently, coming up with some dazzling displays to ensure that he still has a lot to contribute at Manchester United.
The young sensation might not be Mourinho’s go-to man in the 2017-18 season, but the former Chelsea manager still rates him highly, and considers him as the brightest prospect for the club going forward.
Plus, having impressed on a pre-season tour, there is no doubt that Jose will not be accepting Inter Milan demands.
Another report claimed that Perisic’s agent, Fali Ramadani, arrived in Milan to meet with the Inter’s officials to discuss a new contract with the Serie A club.
With each passing day, the Perisic transfer saga has been taking drastic twist and turns, and it will be interesting to see if Manchester United continue their interest for the former Wolfsburg man.
