Chelsea are reportedly keen to battle Manchester United for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

The Croatian international has been the subject of much speculation this summer, with Luciano Spalletti adamant that the club will keep hold of its star man, with Perisic himself claimed to be happy at the San Siro.

However, according to the Mirror, Manchester United are poised to reignite their interest in landing the experienced winger, and Chelsea are also keen to pip them to his signature.

Perisic is a key man for Inter and has flourished since his move from Wolfsburg. However, the 28-year-old could be tempted by the prospect of playing for a club of Chelsea’s prestige, with Antonio Conte desperate to sign more players before the end of the transfer window.

If the Croatia star is to leave Inter this summer, though, potential suitors will need to cough up a mammoth fee. It’s claimed that the Serie A outfit will demand a price of £48m for their wide man.
