United reluctant to offer Martial as part of Perisic bid


By Staff Reporter

Inter Milan have asked Manchester United to include Anthony Martial in any deal for Ivan Perisic, although the Red Devils do not want to let the French star go, and he does not want to leave Old Trafford.

Inter have so far played hard-ball with United in negotiations over the Croatian international and refused to move from their asking price of £48m.

United had been trying to negotiate a lower fee, and broached the possibility of Matteo Darmian going in the opposite direction, but are hugely reluctant to let Martial go.

Although he was not always a starter for Jose Mourinho last season, they hugely rate his potential. Martial similarly has no desire to leave.

Inter had been interested in Darmian in January but looked elsewhere. The Perisic deal remains at an impasse.
