United deal complicated as Inter name Perisic in tour squad

He would become Mourinho's third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku.

Jose Mourinho was asked about the situation on Tuesday, but offered little in terms of revelations.

Inter have been holding out for £49 million for Perisic but after weeks of negotiation United have been unwilling to go that high.

The Croatia worldwide has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but has nonetheless been named in head coach Luciano Spalletti's 28-man party.

On Tuesday, the club have revealed their touring party for their pre-season trip to China and Singapore, and Perisic has been included.

And Robson is not sure how Perisic will fit into the Jose Mourinho's starting line-up at Old Trafford.

FCInterNews, who cover Inter Milan obsessively, sound increasingly convinced that Perisic is close to signing for Manchester United, but they also feel Anthony Martial could be going the other way. Balde has left Lazio's training camp to complete his move to their Serie A rivals, clearing the way for Perisic to join United.

Chelsea defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic is another reported target for Mourinho, while it is understood United maintain an interest in Tottenham's Eric Dier.

And after adding Perisic to the list, it seems he is ready to battle with bitter rivals Liverpool to sign Naby Keita.
