Inter Milan director Piero Ausilio has confirmed Manchester United are interested in Ivan Perisic – but they are yet to put an official offer on the table.

Speculation has been rife that the Red Devils are looking to sign the Croatia international with reports claiming that Perisic has ‘agreed terms’ with United.

And on Sunday Ausilio fanned the flames by hinting that the Serie A club could be ready to let the 28-year-old go and confirmed United’s interest in the winger.

“[United] haven’t made us an official offer for Perisic but their interest is there,” Ausilio told Premium Sport.

“We want to improve Inter and this is why we do not have any sellable or un-sellable players as of now.

“We know that we already have many important players within our roster like Perisic and before we decide to sell him, we have to think about what’s best for Inter.

“For me we have an as good squad or maybe even a better squad than most of the teams who finished ahead of us.

“We don’t need all that much, we will certainly make some moves but we will first have to see what our new coach will want.”

Any deal could be delayed until Inter have appointed a new coach following the sacking of Stefano Pioli, while Chelsea are also reported to be monitoring the player.
