Former Premier League champion Manchester United seem to be edging closer to a double raid for Inter Milan duo Milan Skriniar and Ivan Perisic.
The two players have long been connected with the 20-time English champions after becoming key figure at the Serie A club, and it seems increasingly likely now that transfer to England are extremely close.
According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, the Serie A giant have huge transfer plans of their own and are getting set to make space for fresh acquisitions by selling Perisic to Manchester United.
The Croatian international attacker would possibly cost about £40 million, which should be ideally affordable for the Red Devils and hand the team more natural options on the flanks after using forwards like Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez, and Anthony Martial in that position with mixed outcomes.
Also, the Express have suggested highly-rated central defender Skriniar could dump his current side Inter Milan too for about £63 million.
The Slovakia international defender is refusing to sign a new deal and the Serie A giants are ready to sell him this month instead of risking losing the centre-half for free.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team have made defender Skriniar one of their primary defensive targets this January window and should have no issue paying the £63million asking price for him, making it a double raid worth £103m on Inter.
If the Red Devils complete this swoop they will be a stronger team in the second stanza of the campaign and could have a good opportunity of making the top four at the end of the season.
