Official: Man Utd open transfer talks over deal to sign top Mourinho target



Manchester United are rumored to be interested in the signing Inter Milan forward Ivan Perisic.

According to the Sun United have made contact with Inter Milan over a possible transfer of the World Cup finalist.

Perisic has long been among the targets of the Old Trafford outfit during the tenure of Jose Mourinho. However, no transfer materialized for the 29-year-old Croatia international last summer.

United are looking for a top quality addition to the frontline and Perisic ticks all the boxes as he is a hard-working creative winger.

He has developed into a well-rounded winger since his move from Wolfsburg in 2015 and boasts of pace as well as an eye for goal.

It is understood that Inter Milan want a transfer fee of around £30 million for a player that turns 30 in February. Talks are still in the early stages and United are looking to lower the transfer fee in order to push the deal before the January transfer deadline.

Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done a remarkable job since his arrival in November as the Red Devils have won seven consecutive games. It remains to be seen if this transfer comes to something but it could just be a rumor.
