Croatian is reportedly on the verge of joining the Reds

Manchester United’s summer spending spree looks set to continue with the club on the verge of signing Internationale winger Ivan according to the latest reports

The Independent notes: 

R;The 28-year-old has already agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club but Inter have so far proved unmoving on their star player’s asking price.

Jose probably won’t be too surprised one of his former clubs are playing hardball over his attempts to sign their star player.

Match-winning wingers are in short supply and United aren’t exactly known for being skint when it comes to spending money on their transfers. The club have just forked out £75 million – and rising- on Romelu Lukaku while last summer saw United spend just shy of £90 million on – Inter are holding out for a reason and looking at it objectively it’s hard to blame them.

United can also hope to recoup some of the money for Perisic in shirt sales, as the fans are known to spend a lot on replica shirts featuring the names of new players, there’s been a boom in t-shirt printing in Manchester when it comes the Reds’ big money stars.

Perisic is hitting his peak and there’s little doubt that if United did decide enough was enough and they weren’t going to match Inter’s demands, the former Wolfsburg player would be a pivotal part of Luicano Spalletti’s team next season.
