Manchester United are chasing a move for Croatia international Perisic but Inter are playing hardball.

The Serie A side are holding out for around £48million and want Martial on loan as part of any potential deal.

Jose Mourinho does not entertain the idea of losing the Frenchman and United remain confident they can wrap up a deal for Perisic without having to part with one of their players.

But Italian publication Calcio Mercato claim Martial would be open to a fresh start in Italy and he has already told Inter he will join.

Martial endured a tricky start to the season under Mourinho last term before injuries to the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw him given more game time in the latter stages.
