Manchester United are pushing to sign a top quality attacking midfielder after luring star striker Romelu Lukaku. Croatian international and Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic is heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
If the reports are anything to by then the Red Devils are closing in on a deal to secure the signing of the former Bundesliga playmaker.
According to Guardian, United are closing in to agree a £45million deal for Perisic, who is rated around £49million by the Nerazzurri.
Independent claimed that the British giants have already agreed personal terms with the player, who will eventually sign for Manchester United very soon.
Sky sources have also claimed that the deal is getting closer, Inter want £48million (€54million) but United have so far offered £39million and to reach an agreement, they will need to raise the offer and pay around £45million.
Moreover, NBC journalist Pilib De Brun tweeted that Ivan should be signing for Manchester United next week.
The 28-year-old star featured in 42 games for the Serie A side last season and directly contributed in 23 goals (11 goals and 12 assists).
Mourinho was interested in signing James Rodriguez (via Diario Gol) from Real Madrid to improve his offense, however, the Colombian international has officially joined Bayern Munich on loan, therefore, United would not want to lose out on signing Ivan as well.
