"Manchester United want to sign him" - Technical director confirms Jose Mourinho wants deal done


Internazionale technical director Walter Sabatini has confirmed that Manchester United want to sign Ivan Perisic.

Reports in England have claimed that the Red Devils have identified the winger as an asset for next season.

The rumour has now been confirmed by Sabatini who however made it clear that the Nerazzurri want to keep the Croatian at the club.

"Over the course of time we'll know," Sabatini is quoted as saying by Football Italia.

"I'm not a tactician in the Press room, I say things which exist and which we'd like to do, and not much about conditionals.

"Perisic is a player who our Coach [Luciano Spalletti] has asked us to keep. We'd do that, except we only want those with the right motivation.

"There's strong interest from Manchester United, who know our ideas, so we'll see what happens in the next few days.

"It's a fact that Inter set the price of Inter players. Perisic is a great player for Inter, we want him to stay and the only way that won't happen is if we get financial advantages to improve the team.

"In the meantime I hope that Perisic will maintain the behaviours required of him, because we want to forge the idea of Inter every day and Spalletti is a maestro in that regard.

"We need conviction and professionalism, and that's not enough either. It will take faith and soul and our Coach will get that from everyone - including Perisic."
