According to the Italian sources, Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

The reports from Premium Sport suggest that the 28-year-old Persic has chosen to join Man United after being convinced by the club manager Jose Mourinho.

The deal for the Croatian attacker will reportedly cost the Red Devils around £39 million plus bonuses.

Ivan Perisic had also received an offer from League 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, but the winger has opted to move to Old Trafford this summer.

During the last international break back in March, Jose Mourinho travelled to Croatia to hold talks with agent Predrag Mijatovic over a deal for Perisic.

And as per the same sources, it was in Croatia where the Special One put forward his proposal and persuaded the 28-year-old that Man United would be the right move.

The former Wolfsburg star has been one of Inter’s standout players this season, scoring 10 goals and providing six assists in 35 Serie A appearances.

Inter are reportedly using the money from Persic to fund the signings of Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez and Sassuolo star attacker Domenico Berardi.
