Manchester United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, is intent on giving manager Jose Mourinho his ideal summer, by finally landing Inter Milan winger, Ivan Perisic.
Woodward has reopened talks with the Croatia international’s agent Fali Ramadani, in a bid to resurrect a transfer that seemed dead when Inter coach Luciano Spalletti insisted that the 28-year-old was staying.
The Red Devils have already failed to land the player with two bids, but latest reports claim Woodward is now close to meeting the £48million asking price.
Mourinho admitted on Friday that only 75 per cent of his transfer targets have been delivered – Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Vidic and Victor Lindelof.
But he could get all he wanted this summer, when the Perisic deal is finalized before the window closes.
