Manchester United target Ivan Perisic has arrived at the airport for Inter Milan’s pre-season tour of China.
He was expected to complete a move to Old Trafford before the plane journey as reports claimed both clubs were very close to reaching an agreement for his services this summer.
However, Man United have been dealt a massive blow as he’ll take part in Inter’s pre-season tour, ruling him out of Jose Mourinho‘s tour plans.
Here’s a video of the Croation arriving with the rest of the team.

It’s a shame because it seems like Inter are also playing hardball over a fee for Perisic, just as United lost out on Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata after a transfer fee could not be negotiated.
The pre-season is the time for new plays to adapt to the move and build chemistry with the new players at the club, and it’ll be a massive loss to have him out of action, especially with a big season coming up in the Premier League and Champions League.
Hopes are a move is still on the cards, but it looks like Inter have sent a statement of intent to United officials over their stance on a transfer.
