Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has hinted that Ivan Perisic has been 'distracted' by talk of a summer transfer to Manchester United .

MEN Sport understands that the 28-year-old is already planning for life at Old Trafford and expects to join the club ahead of the transfer window closing.

An agreement has not yet been reached between United and Inter Milan over a fee, but Perisic's camp do not believe that will prove an issue.

It is understood that the Croatian 'appreciates' and 'enjoys' the work of Jose Mourinho and is keen on playing in the Champions League again after a four-year absence.

And, although Inter resisted cashing in on the winger to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations last month, Spalletti admits they will sit down for talks about his future.
