Inter Milan have confirmed Ivan Perisic will be joining the rest of the squad on the pre-seaosn tour of China.
He has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United and Ed Woodward would have been hoping to conclude a deal before the flight today, however, it doesn’t seem like they’ve reached an agreement.
Jose Mourinho would have wanted him on Man United’s tour, as it’s a great time for him to settle in and missing out on time to bond with his new players will only slow his adaptation at Old Trafford.
Although reports claim an agreement is close, Inter don’t have any reason to keep him off the tour, especially if a move isn’t even official yet.
Mourinho was disappointed earlier in the window as he’s only got 2/4 that he would have wanted training with the squad ahead of the new season, and it seems like he may have to wait longer to land his target.
Next season will be very important for United in the Premier League and Champions League, and Mourinho will want as many of his new players as possible to have some time to get settled before having to perform on the main stage.
