The Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are already preparing for success in the new season after the addition of Romelu Lukaku from Everton and are hoping for more arrivals before the Premier League gets underway.
One name which has been doing the rounds in the Tavern for weeks now is that of Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic and it seems there has been a big update from the Italian side.
According to The Independent, the Serie A outfit have told the powers that be at Old Trafford that they will entertain a deal for the Croatian on the basis that their offers include French winger Anthony Martial going the other way.
The forward, who arrived for a world record fee for a teenager in 2015, fell down the pecking order under the guise of Jose Mourinho last season, however, the Indy go on to claim that neither player nor club are interested in the idea of the 21-year-old leaving this summer.
That leaves United in a dilemma, with Mourinho having handed Ed Woodward his targets before the end of the season with the expectation that he’d be getting what he asked for without compromise.
United fan, we want to hear from you! Would you let Martial go to have Perisic? Let us know…
