Time running out for Inter Milan in Ivan Perisic transfer…

Manchester United have been linked with Inter Milan’s Croatian winger Ivan Perisic for a number of weeks now with many reports suggesting that the rumours had legs and the player is interested in making a move to the Old Trafford club. There is no parity in the offer United are reported to have made, in the region of £26 million with the Serie A side seemingly holding out for closer to £35 million with United holding firm in their valuation of the player. Lots of things have been said about Perisic and how he would fit into United’s team being that player that Jose Mourinho would look for to create and drive forward with pace and ability to fire in a cross or even score a goal – a player that would do anything for his club, which is something United need right now.

Inter Milan purchased Perisic for around £14.5 million just two years ago with a £26 million fee meaning the club would make around £11.5 million profit on the transfer, which will be seen as a good bit of business being conducted. Financial Fair Play is something which will complicate any deal ad Inter Milan need to raise €30 million by the end of the month, meaning that the club now have eight days before that deadline, meaning time is starting to run out which could see Inter start to become desperate in trying to conclude a deal with United, or even ship two or three others players out of the club, which would be more desirable for the club, not losing a player they view as one of their best at the club currently.

Inter Milan were found to be in breach of the FFP regulations in 2015 and then given a £15 million fine and given a period of time to reach ‘full break-even compliance’, which will need to be in place by the end of the month. Back in 2015, a total of 14 clubs around Europe, also including AS Roma, Monaco, Sporting Lisbon, Besiktas, and even Hull City, which showed that many clubs were breaking the regulations set by UEFA and the Club Financial Control Body. Inter will need to start finding a way to get the money they need inside the next eight days, or failing to comply with FFP regulations could become very costly for the club, of which it has been costly already.

The next eight days will see whether Inter Milan will stand firm on their valuation for the player, or give into United, who have offered a good deal for both the club and the player. United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will sit and wait for a call from Inter Milan, hopefully accepting their offer, or to find parity in a possible transfer fee, failing that, Inter may have to find clubs to sell other players, which may see them earn the amount needed to break even under FFP regulations. Whilst United are currently in a strong negotiating position if Inter do find buyers for other players, it could see United seemingly fall on their sword and Inter Milan can then demand what they want for the player with United having to pay it, or find another target this summer.
