Currently in the United States for the first half of pre-season preparations, United's move for Perisic appears to be nearing completion, with the BBC's Simon Stone reporting that representatives from the club have visited the 28-year-old Croatian international in Milan to force the transfer through.
One variable potentially obstructing the sale is Inter's desire to take out-of-favour Anthony Martial in return, though with no progress on that front, Perisic may join his Nerazzurri brethren for the Serie A side's pre-season trip to Shanghai, China to face Lyon and Bayern Munich before a visit to Singapore to test Chelsea.
Another issue complicating matters is United's tabled offer and Inter's valuation of Perisic, with reports stating that the Lancashire lot's bid was £9 million short of the club's £40-million price tag.
A left-winger able to also ply his trade in a central role or on the right side, Perisic made 36 appearances for Inter last season, pairing 11 goals with eight assists in his second campaign after a €16-million move from Wolfsburg.
