Man Utd transfer news: BBC Sport journalist reveals Ivan Perisic latest as rumours swirl | Football | Sport


Manchester United have been tipped to pursue Perisic, who was wanted by Jose Mourinho a year ago.

Since then, the Inter Milan star’s stock has risen after he fired Croatia to a first-ever World Cup final in Russia last month.

Manchester United are seeking a right winger with days of the transfer window to go and recent comments from Perisic have sent supporters into a frenzy.

But Stone tweeted: “Told nothing happening re Perisic at the moment.”

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure during pre-season, fuelling fears United are heading for another campaign of turbulence.

And he used his pre-match appearance today to hit out at Ed Woodward over the lack of transfer activity.

He said: “My CEO [Ed Woodward] has known what I want for quite a long time. He knows what I want.

“I know that he tries his best for me. I still have a few days to wait to see what is going to happen.”

Perisic, meanwhile, has sent Manchester United fans into a meltdown after admitting he would be open to a Premier League switch.

The Inter Milan star has never chanced his arm in English football.

And he said: “I would like to test myself in all of the biggest leagues but the question is will I have the time, I am 29 and working to extend my career as long as I can.

“Yes, I’d like to play in England and Spain but I don’t know if there is enough time left.”

United are set for a defining week.

They have just five days to bring in new recruits.

And they then face Leicester in their Premier League opener on Friday night.
