Inter Chief Insists Man Utd’s Pursuit Of Ivan Perisic Is “Over” After Failing To Follow-Up Interest

Published on:

Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has confirmed that Manchester United have not followed up on talks over a transfer move for Ivan Perisic.

Mourinho is keen on signing Perisic this summer.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on adding more reinforcements as he eyes to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The Portuguese boss is desperately searching for a wide midfielder and has been linked with a move for Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.

Earlier, FootTheBall had reported that Manchester United have launched a £44million transfer move for Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic, who is keen to make a switch to Old Trafford this summer.

Inter wanted Martial in a deal that would see Perisic join the Red Devils.

Man Utd’s pursuit of Perisic had been dealt a blow as Inter are holding out for a £50million fee and had also demanded Anthony Martial to be a part of the deal for the Croatian star.

But now, Inter boss Spalletti has accentuated that there is no chance of the move going through with the Red Devils not following up on transfer talks for the 28-year-old Croatian star.

“Until now, there hasn’t been any important contact,” the Inter boss said.

“There was something you already know about at the beginning of the window [but] there was no follow-up and so, for me, the topic is over.”

Perisic, right, scored 11 goals and added eight assists for Inter last season.

“It’s true as time goes by, it becomes more and more difficult to replace him with another player.”

“I will strongly oppose the sale of Perisic if an offer comes.”

Man Utd have been warned that Dier is not for sale

Man Utd had earlier showed huge interest in Eric Dier but the Spurs bosses made it clear that they do not want to sell any of their key players – pointing out particularly that they are not interested in listening to offers for the English midfielder.
