United were ready to end their interest in the Croatia international over Inter’s £40m valuation.

The Serie A club managed to hold off any Uefa sanctions after scraping together the £26 million they needed.

Although there is a no longer a need to sell Perisic, the player is keen on the move.

And, according to Goal, Perisic is ready to force Inter’s hand.

Should he tell them he wants to leave, they may be forced to flog a player whose heart is not at the San Siro.

SunSport revealed in March that Jose Mourinho had flown to Zagreb to oversee the deal.

But the United boss reckons he can get the player for well under Inter’s valuation.

Perisic, 28, has agreed a £100,000-a-week deal in principle.

Mourinho left United chief Ed Woodward with his shopping list before jetting off on holiday at the end of the season.

And the Portuguese has been left frustrated with the lack of business the club have been able to do.

Centre-back Victor Lindelof is the only player to arrive so far.

The Sweden international signed for a £31m fee from Benfica.

Once Chelsea have got their move for Tiemoue Bakayoko over the line, Nemanja Matic should also be free to link up for another spell working with Mourinho.
