Manchester United open transfer talks over deal to sign £40m-rated attacker

Manchester United have renewed their interest in Ivan Perisic after making contact with Inter Milan to discuss a potential deal for the  £40m-rated attacker, according to reports in Italy via The Sun.

Gazetta Dello Sport says the talks are at a preliminary stage with United chiefs simply exploring if Inter are prepared to sell the 29-year-old but they could face competition from Atletico Madrid after they also expressed their interest.

However, The Sun suggests Inter would still demand around £40m for Perisic’s services and it remains to be seen whether United bosses would be willing to pay that kind of money for a player who’d have very little sell-on value as he turns 30 next month.

Real Madrid are likely to sell James Rodriguez only in one condition
