Inter Milan ‘want to keep’ Ivan Perisic – Coach Spalletti

Thursday 27th July , 2017 4:14 pm

Inter Milan head coach Luciano Spalletti wants to keep Manchester United target Ivan Perisic, but has suggested he will be sold for the right price.

According to Sky Sports, United and Inter are close to agreeing a fee for the Croatia winger, who the Serie A club value at £48m.

Perisic is currently with Inter on a pre-season tour and might feature against Bayern Munich in Singapore on Thursday.

“Sure there are rumours but we want to keep Perisic,” said Spalletti. “He’s a very important player for the team. We are counting on him to start the new season.

“But if somebody comes in with a very difficult offer to reject then we will consider that, but of course we need to find a valid alternative for Perisic as well.”

Jose Mourinho has confirmed he still wants a midfielder and a wide player at Manchester United before the transfer window shuts.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have been linked with a move for Inter’s Antonio Candreva.

Spalletti failed to give assurances about his future at Inter, saying: “Nobody has officially made a request for him yet.”
