Inter boss Luciano Spalletti admits the club are prepared to sell Ivan Perisic if Man Utd meet their asking price.
We understand that Manchester United and Inter are close to agreeing a fee for the Croatia winger, who the Serie A club want £48m for.
“He is a fantastic player and if his future is totally up to me, I will definitely keep him,” Spalletti told a news conference. “Perisic is an important player for this team and Inter have ambitious objectives.
“However, if an offer comes and the club are satisfied with the money, which will be used to invest in and strengthen the team, he could leave.”
Spalletti added: “From my point of view, it’s very simple: Ivan’s an important player for me, after that you have to ask him how he’s dealing with the interest from Manchester United.
“I’d say it’s positive, meaning the player is strong, but at the same time, there are directors with whom he signed a contract that he must respect. After that, if Inter were to accept a certain kind of offer, we’d get an equally important player to replace him.”
