Ivan Perisic's agent met with Inter Milan for talks on Wednesday as Manchester United step up their efforts to sign the winger, Sky sources understand.

Sky Sports News HQ understands United are getting closer to a deal for Perisic, but Inter are sticking to their £48m asking price for the Croatia international and there is no agreement between the clubs yet.

Perisic, who wants to move to Old Trafford, has joined up with the rest of the Inter squad at their training camp in the north of Italy but United are trying to do a deal before the Serie A club flies to China next week.

Their most recent offer for Perisic is understood to have been £39m but Sky Sports News HQ understands they will need to increase that to around £45m to secure their target, who has three years left on his current contract.

He was due to meet with Inter boss Luciano Spalletti last week to talk over his future, with Spalletti saying: "You keep talking about Perisic and his desire to leave but I need to listen to his own words first and then decide how to act.

"I hope to have him in the side, I am counting on it and I am positive in that sense."
