Inter Milan have asked Manchester United about taking Anthony Martial as part of a deal for Ivan Perisic to move to Old Trafford, according to Sky in Italy.

United want to sign Croatia's attacking midfielder Perisic this summer, and the player is also keen on joining Jose Mourinho's side.

Sky Sports News HQ understands Manchester United are getting closer to reaching a deal, but Inter are sticking to their £48m asking price and they have asked about Martial as a part of the deal.

He moved to United from Monaco in a £36m deal in 2015 that could rise to £58m.
