Manchester United deal-maker Ed Woodward is trying to give Jose Mourinho his ideal summer by finally landing Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

Woodward has reopened talks with the Croatia international’s agent Fali Ramadani in a bid to resurrect a transfer that seemed dead when Inter coach Luciano Spalletti insisted that the 28-year-old was staying.

United have had two bids for the player rejected, but it is believed that Woodward is now close to meeting the Serie A giants' £48million asking price.
