Boss Jose Mourinho has already landed Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Benfica defender Victor Lindelof as United rebuild for the new season.

As reported by ESPN, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had a sift response when asked how his club's alleged pursuit of Ivan Perisic was getting on. No idea my friend.

Further doubt appears to have been cast on his move to Old Trafford, meanwhile, as Inter have named the 28-year-old as part of their travelling contingent for the trip to the Far East.

Perisic, 28, is set to travel with the rest of the Inter squad on Tuesday but sources have told ESPN FC that United, who are now playing in the ICC tournament in the United States, are still confident of landing the Croatia worldwide.

United are keen to wrap up a deal so Perisic does not have to travel and are said to be increasingly hopeful of finalising terms.

Amanda Nunes Pulls out of UFC 213 Fight Due to 'Mysterious' Illness
Former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will fight against Donald Cerrone since Tyron Woodley knocked him out at UFC 201. We can also safely conclude that her presence is nowhere near as noticeable as Rousey's or Tate's.


The United boss said he had "no idea", despite nearly hourly reports suggesting baby-step progress is being made by Ed Woodward to bring the Croatia worldwide to Old Trafford.

Chelsea defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic is another target for Mourinho, while it is understood United maintain an interest in Tottenham's Eric Dier.

Per the source, United are edging closer to completing the deal which could cost £44 million.

United have been struggling to agree a fee with Inter Milan with Sky Sports News suggesting the Manchester giants have been reluctant to meet their £48m asking price while they also knocked back their proposal to include Anthony Martial in any deal.
