Inter boss Luciano Spalletti rules out Ivan Perisic departure

Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti insists the "conversation is over" when it comes to a potential move away from San Siro for in-demand winger Ivan Perisic.

Croatian Perisic, 28, has been linked to Premier League club Manchester United this summer but Inter have taken him on their pre-season tours and appear unwilling to consider any sale.

Before Saturday's friendly against Chelsea in Singapore, Spalletti said he "strongly opposed" the prospect of Perisic leaving Milan in the transfer window.

"There has been no more significant contact in the last few weeks," he told inter.it. "So for me the conversation is over.

"The more days that go by, the more difficult it becomes for us to replace him and therefore I would strongly oppose his departure."

Former Wolfsburg player Perisic scored 11 Serie A goals for the Nerazzurri last season.
