Man Utd To Announce Attacker Signing: £45m Bid Accepted + £85k-A-Week Deal Agreed

By on June 2, 2017

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Man Utd have agreed a fee to sign Ivan Perisic…

Ivan Perisic has agreed terms over a contract worth £85,000-a-week with Manchester United after a £45m deal was sealed with Inter Milan, according to reports in Italy via the Express.

Jose Mourinho is gearing up for a busy summer in the transfer window as he looks to turn United in to genuine title challengers again next season and strengthening his attack is a top priority.

Perisic has emerged as a prime target with Sky Sports News reporting last week that United had formalised their interest with a £36m bid which was immediately knocked back by Inter.

However, it appears United have now gone back in with a new offer as the Express are citing a report from CalcioMercato that claims the Red Devils have had an improved £45m bid accepted.

The Italian outlet goes on to state that Perisic has also agreed personal terms over a contract worth £85,000-a-week – double his current salary – and the deal is expected to be officially announced next week.

It remains to be seen how much truth there is behind these reports as there is always plenty of idle gossip flying around at this time of year but the speculation linking Perisic with United is intensifying.

Anthony-Martial-man-utd

The 28-year-old would be an excellent signing for United as he’d add some much-needed creativity in the final third having scored 11 goals and provided a further 10 assists last season.

While the Croatian international can play anywhere across the attack, he’s predominantly a left-winger so his signing would cast further doubt over the future of Anthony Martial – who’s been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks after failing to establish himself under Mourinho.

We’ll have to wait and see how things develop but while I do think Perisic would be a fine addition to United’s squad, I would question the move if it meant Martial leaving as I think the Frenchman has a huge future ahead of him if nurtured properly.

    Mourinho shouldn’t sell Martial. Martial is been demoralised because of his changed favourite jersey number and also his wing was changed. Fabregas didnt go back to arsenal because wenger refuse to give him his no4 jersey number.Mourinho should try and be friendly with him and he will see d best of martial. He still have age in his side unlike Ivan, remember kelvin de brun. Martial lack playing time too he has pace than rashford. If he is not doing well in training that means something is bothering him. Mourinho should be too hard on dis young guys he should start acting as a father

    Martial is destroying his talent, sure how can he loose hope of playing because of a jersey number 9? He value is down these days, no any club can sign him more than £50M,

    Mourinho have to learn to be wise this time.Sell 20years in the name of 28years doesn’t make sense, before you talk of a player of his quality.Even best players do loss form sometimes in their career.All that glitters are not gold.Experience is the best t
