Despite the bid presented by United, the Italian outfit won’t listen to any offers which are less than €50-€55 million.

Rumours suggest that Jose Mourinho has personally contacted Perisic to lure him away from San Siro and the player definitely looks keen to switch clubs.

The 29-year-old also impressed Blues boss Antonio Conte who is going for a major overhaul in his Chelsea squad who will play Champions League next season.And desperately wants to land the Inter man this summer.

Despite the interest from Stamford Bridge the Croat is only eager to work with Jose Mourinho according to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol. The rumours have been spiced up as Perisic appears to confirm Inter exit and posted a photo on social media of him with his son, who is wearing an Inter jersey and waving at the camera.
