Gianluca Di Marzio: Manchester United have cooled interest in Ivan Perisic

by Tanveer Arayan

Gianluca Di Marzio insists Manchester United have cooled their interest in Ivan Perisic and have not made another attempt to sign him.

Jose Mourinho initially identified Perisic as a player Man United could sign on a cheap with Inter hoping to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, however, after raising the funds through a number of smaller deals, the Serie A club have shown their intent to keep hold of their star asset.

Inter have stuck to their guns and have refused to move away from their unjustifiable valuation of around €55 for Perisic, with the only exception if Anthony Martial is included in a deal to go the other way.

They have proven very hard negotiators and it’s the reason why a deal had still not been met even though United were hoping to get it sorted before Inter flew out to their pre-season tour of China.

He has in fact impressed in Asia, but it’s a shame Mourinho may not land his man as the Portuguese boss has confirmed he may be forced into only accepting three new arrivals this summer because of the current market.

A move still could happen but it’s looking increasingly unlikely as time goes on because he will be offered a new improved contract to stay at the San Siro ahead of next campaign.
