The drumbeat from the UK media is that Manchester United are closing in on signing Inter winger Ivan Perisic, but sporting director Piero Ausilio says that “we have not taken into consideration anything that Manchester United have offered us” for Ivan Perisic.
In an interview on Sky Sport Italia, Ausilio cut down any rumours of an imminent deal.
“It’s not happening. Perisic is training with us and so far we have not taken into consideration anything that Manchester United have offered us.”
Ausilio was also asked about the situation with Nice full-back Dalbert, who is reportedly the subject of a €20m proposal.
“The situation with Dalbert will not be quick, as we only approached the club over the last few days to open negotiations.
“Nice are not oriented towards a sale, so we need patience, a strategy and to wait for Dalbert’s decision.”
