Inter Milan are considering the thought of accepting Manchester United’s improved offer of €50 million for Ivan Perisic.
According to reports, Perisic had already agreed personal terms with the Red Devils a couple of weeks ago, and is set to earn an annual salary of €6 million if the deal goes through.
While an agreement was reached with the Croatian, Inter refused to budge on their valuation of the midfielder, and turned down United’s initial offer of €40 million earlier this month.
They are said to value the 28-year-old at around €55 million, and since newly appointed manager Lucio Spalletti is keen to hold on to him, the club is unwilling to sell him for a fee far below his price tag.
As a result, the Old Trafford outfit has now upped the offer by a further €10 million with a few easily attainable bonuses, and the Nerazzurri are taking the offer into serious consideration, according to Calciomercato (via Football Italia).
The Serie A club urgently needs to raise €30 million before the 30th of June to balance the books in terms of Financial Fair Play, and letting go of Perisic could prove to be the perfect way to do so.
Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on signing the winger, and their new director of sport, Antero Henrique, is set to fly down to Milan in the coming weeks for a number of meetings, and Perisic is believed to be one of the main topics of discussion.
Mourinho has been desperate to find a quality out-and-out winger who can run at defenses and deliver good crosses into the box, and despite his age, Perisic ticks those boxes perfectly.
United yesterday confirmed the signing of Victor Lindelof, and should Perisic move to the Theatre of Dreams, he would be the club’s second signing in a window that is set to see the club splash the cash once more.
