United set to close deal for Barcelona targetShare:
Jose Mourinho is close to finally having Ivan Perisic join Manchester United with the club now willing to match Inter Milian's asking price, according to reports.
Manchester United are set to complete their summer recruitments by finally landing Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.
United chief executive Ed 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 had two bids for the player rejected, but it is believed that Woodward is now close to meeting the Serie A giants' £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.
And United are looking to finally get the Perisic deal finalised before the transfer window closes.
But reports that Barcelona will target Perisic, if they fail to land Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, may complicate the issue.
