Spalletti: Inter want to keep Perisic

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti insists the Serie A outfit are keen to hold on to Ivan Perisic but admits he may leave for the right price.

The winger is supposedly on his way out of the club as Manchester United and the Nerazzurri reportedly edge towards agreeing a transfer fee for the Croatian.

Spalletti would be delighted to hold on to Perisic, but the Red Devils are seemingly willing to fork out around £48m for the 28-year-old.

"Sure there are rumours but we want to keep Perisic," said Spalletti, according to Sky Sports. "He's a very important player for the team. We are counting on him to start the new season.

"But if somebody comes in with a very difficult offer to reject then we will consider that, but of course we need to find a valid alternative for Perisic as well."
