Manchester United are reportedly set to complete a £44million deal for Ivan Perisic.
The Croatia international has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer and is said to be desperate to join Jose Mourinho at United.
The Red Devils are close to agreeing an initial fee of £39.5m for the Croatian winger after weeks of negotiations – the final sum is expected to be around £44m.
According to the Daily Mail, Perisic is set to pull out of Inter Milan’s pre-season tour to China on Tuesday ahead of his move to the Theatre of Dreams.
While United arrived in America last week for their pre-season tour, Ed Woodward stayed in England to complete the deal with Inter playing hardball over a fee.
Ivan Perisic’s Serie A season
It is claimed the Serie A giants wanted a loan deal for Anthony Martial to be incorporated into the transfer but they have now compromised on a price for Perisic.
The 28-year-old scored 11 goals and provided 11 assists in Serie A last season and was also targeted by Liverpool and Chelsea.
