Manchester United have reportedly increased their offer for 28-year-old Croatian, Ivan Perisic, in a bid to force his club into selling before June 30. That date has been set aside by UEFA for the Italian giants to meet Financial Fair Play regulations, however, the 18-time Italian champions have rejected the bid, according to The Daily star.
Perisic is wanted by the Red Devils to bolster their ranks for next season, as they look to compete on four fronts next season. Jose Mourinho personally scouted the former Wolfsburg man in March, and believes he will be an upgrade on his current wingers.
Financial Fair Play regulations stipulate that Inter must remit at least €30m by June 30, of which they are looking to sell one of their key players. With that in mind, the club had been open to offers for Perisic and are holding out for €50m, a figure Jose Mourinho is unwilling to match.
Perisic is keen on a move to Old Trafford, and may have to force a move or tender a transfer request to leave San Siro. Jose Mourinho saw his side finish 6th last season, and is keen on a title assault for next season, as his side won the EFL Cup, Europa League and FA Community Shield in what was a hugely successful first season.
Perisic is a two-footed winger who is known for his trickery, dribbling and finishing. He had played for the likes of Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund earlier in his career. He will be a good signing if he makes the move to Old Trafford. He scored 13 goals and created a further 14 in 43 matches last term for the Nerrazurri, who disappointed and failed to qualify for any European competition, amid major managerial upheaval.
