Inter discuss fate of Chelsea, United target Perisic

Inter Milan have confirmed that Manchester United are interested in signing winger Ivan Perisic.

United emerged as contenders for Perisic’s signature on Sunday, with Chelsea also being credited with an interest mere hours later.

The Croatia international could cost up to £43million for either Premier League side, and Inter’s sporting director Piero Ausilio discussed his future on Sunday.

“[United] haven’t made us an official offer for Perisic but their interest is there,” Ausilio told Premium Sport.

“We want to improve Inter and this is why we do not have any sellable or un-sellable players as of now.

“We know that we already have many important players within our roster like Perisic and before we decide to sell him, we have to think about what’s best for Inter.

“For me we have an as good squad or maybe even a better squad than most of the teams who finished ahead of us.

“We don’t need all that much, we will certainly make some moves but we will first have to see what our new coach will want.”
