Inter Milan will offer Ivan Perisic to Manchester United as they attempt to sweeten a deal for Alexis Sanchez, while a Man Utd goalkeeper wants out and Frank Lampard has an Atletico Madrid star in his sights, all in the papers.
PERISIC OFFERED TO UNITED
Inter Milan are desperate to try and negotiate a permanent deal for Alexis Sanchez and are willing to offer a player to sweeten the deal.
That’s the news coming from Italian outlet Calciomercato via fichajes.com. And the player in question is long-time Jose Mourinho target Ivan Perisic.
Inter could include the Croatia winger in their offer as they try an broker a deal for loan winger Sanchez.
The 31-year-old joined the Nerazzurri on a season-long loan deal last summer and has started to impress of late after a slow start in Serie A.
Since the restart Sanchez has seven assists and two goals in his last nine Serie A games. That has apparently taken the eye of coach Antonio Conte, who is now pushing for the club to keep him permanently.
And, according to FC Inter News Sanchez’s priority is to remain with the Serie A side and he is set to ask United “for a good exit” so that financially he does not have to ask Inter’s owners for such a big contract.
Perisic has been on loan with Bayern Munich, but he has not been signed outright by the German champions, and could be offered as a makeweight to lower the Sanchez price tag.
