Inter Milan still demanding Anthony Martial in deal for Ivan Perisic – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United’s hopes of signing Ivan Perisic could be coming to an end as Inter Milan remain set on taking Anthony Martial in return, according to reports.

The Old Trafford club are unwilling to let the Frenchman leave, especially as he started pre-season in explosive form after facing heavy criticism last season.

Jose Mourinho asked for him to be more consistent and although he may struggle at times, there is no chance a player of his potential will be allowed to leave, even if it is the only way to sign Perisic.

A deal was expected to be completed before Perisic got on the plane to China for Inter’s pre-season tour and it’s dragged on after both clubs failed to agree on a fee.

The Italian club values him at around €50m and with Man United opposed to paying that highly, they may be forced into signing an alternative as the Portuguese boss confirmed he may be forced into only accepting one more signing.

Inter don’t seem to understand that Martial is worth a lot of money, especially in comparison to Perisic and with the current situation not moving forward, there are now doubts a deal will be wrapped up.
