Ivan Perisic to Manchester United

Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho appears resigned to the fact that he won't be acquiring winger Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

The Red Devils play their first game of the new Premier League season this afternoon when they take on West Ham United, with Mourinho equipped with three new signings to boost his chances of a title challenge.

If the transfer goes through, he would be Mourinho's fourth summer signing after Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

Mourinho had publicly criticised United's failure to sign players earlier this summer, regularly putting pressure on executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward who is tasked with leading United's negotiations in the transfer market.

Woodward is said to have re-opened discussions with the Croatia star's agent Fali Ramadani in a bid to finally get the deal over the line, according to a report in the Sunday Mirror.

The 28-year-old Perisic is in the middle of a transfer speculation linking him with a move to England with Manchester United.

Elliott will be appealing the suspension and will have the full support of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones throughout the process. Elliott was subject to the league's personal conduct policy for allegedly breaking the nose of a DJ at a Dallas nightclub.

The Croatian global, who impressed for his country at Euro 2016, offers the potent attacking play and defensive work rate that Mourinho is looking for, meaning he could be the ideal left winger in this United side.

Speaking ahead of the European Super Cup after being asked about Perisic moving to the Theatre of Dreams, Mourinho was effusive in his praise for the Italian club, admitting that the club did all they could do to keep one of their best players. The manager had stressed that talk of Perisic leaving "is now finished", seemingly drawing an end to any hope United had of landing the Croatian.
