Gianluca Di Marzio: Inter Milan want Anthony Martial in Ivan Perisic deal

by Tanveer Arayan

Inter Milan are determined to include Anthony Martial in a deal with Manchester United if they want Ivan Perisic, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

A deal for Perisic was expected to be completed before Inter’s pre-season tour of China, however, with the Italian club hoping to get the best possible fee, a deal has been delayed and the Croation has flown out with the rest of the squad.

Jose Mourinho was hoping to sign him on a cheap with Inter looking to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations earlier in the month, but with the side raising funds through smaller deals, they have now stalled a transfer in the hopes of keeping hold of their star asset.

Martial has been hit and miss under Mourinho but as his cousin has confirmed, he is completely focused on making his future work at Old Trafford, especially after his debut season under Louis van Gaal.

Although reports claimed a deal was close to being completed, it’s clear Inter are hoping a deal will fall through or ensure they have a suitable replacement if Perisic opts for a Premier League switch.
