Inter Milan coach, Luciano Spalletti, has confirmed there have been no suitable offers for Manchester United target Ivan Perisic this summer.
The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho tried to sign him on a cheap while Inter had to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, however, after raising funds through smaller deals, they have proven their intent to keep hold of their star asset.
Man United are unwilling to match Inter’s valuation of Perisic and are also reluctant to let Anthony Martial leave as part of the deal, which is what Inter would prefer.
Speaking about a deal, Spalletti insists he’s planning Inter’s future with Perisic.
“Perisic has a valid contract [until 2020] and he has got to respect this,” he said.
“Then, if a satisfactory offer were to arrive, that would change things and we could even consider the offer.
“For the moment, though, the right offer has not yet arrived and he is here with us.
“As far as I am concerned Ivan is very important and I’m keeping hold of him.
“If Inter were to accept an offer for him, it would only be to strengthen the side further.”
Perisic came on as a half-time substitute in Inter’s win over Lyon and has been playing a role in the Serie A club’s pre-season tour of China.
Although Spalletti claims he has no intentions of selling Perisic, if Man United move closer to the unjustifiable valuation of €50 million, he could make the move.
