Manchester United fans have no interest in landing Perisic for Lukaku

This summer is going to be massive for a whole host of European giants. From Real Madrid and Bayern Munich to Arsenal and Atletico Madrid, a lot needs to be done. One club, though, that arguably needs the most work is Manchester United, and the fact that they’ve rejected a swap deal offer from Inter Milan that would see Romelu Lukaku and Ivan Perisic switch clubs is a good start.

The source that claims Inter Milan made that offer which Manchester United quickly rebuffed is Gazzetta dello Sport, via Calcio Mercato, and it’s easy enough to see why the Old Trafford hierarchy has turned their noses up. Perisic may have been a quality option a few years back, but now that he’s 30-years-old it would be a calamitous move to swap him for a striker who could bring in a massive transfer fee.

Even Ed Woodward has proved that he might have an ounce of sense in him somewhere, even if it the first we’ve seen of that. Romelu Lukaku likely won’t be staying on at the club, though, so Woodward still has work to do as he attempts to squeeze the best deal out of the big Belgian striker. It’s going well so far, though, as with Inter Milan keen and now aware that Perisic won’t cut it, they should be set to offer some respectable money soon.
