Manchester United bid for Ivan Persic has been accepted by Inter Milan

Manchester United are close to making their first signing of the season after Serie A giants Inter Milan accepted a €52million(£45.3m) bid for Croatian star Ivan Perisic.

Red Devils manager, Jose Mourinho is keen to add quality to his side after they qualified for the UEFA Champions League courtesy of winning the Europa League with a 2-0 success over a youthful Ajax side.

According to the report, Perisic will need to agree personal terms with the Old Trafford side after both clubs agreed a fee.

The Itaian side must sell one of their key players before the end of June in order to meet Financial Fair Play regulations, otherwise their summer transfer budget will be restricted just like Atletico Madrid.

Perisic, 28, netted 11 goals and registered eight assists in 36 Serie A appearances for Inter Milan although they only finished in seventh place, 14 points behind the Champions League places but the Croatian was one of the standout performers.
