Manchester United are making progress with a deal to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan, Sky sources understand.

Perisic's price has been a sticking point in protracted negotiations between the teams, with Inter holding out for £48m for the 28-year-old.

The Serie A side also enquired about the possibility of United's young French forward, Anthony Martial, going the other way in the deal.

But Inter are now in advanced talks to sign a replacement for Perisic - Keita Balde from Lazio - and that could smooth the way for the Croatian to move to move to United.

News - Transfers Garry Monk Makes His Move For Charlie Taylor But Burnley Favourites For Leeds Man. Inter have knocked back two offers from Manchester United for Perisic and are holding out for around €50m before they agree to sell the winger in the summer transfer window.

United want to wrap up, or at least make significant progress , on a transfer for Periśič before he flies out to China with the Inter Milan squad for a pre-season tour.

Perisic was given permission to leave Inter's training camp in the Alps on Saturday to return to Croatia to see a "trusted dentist" because of a "tooth abscess".

United have brought in Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku already this summer but Jose Mourinho has made it clear he wants at least two more signings before the transfer window shuts on August 31.

"We don't have our door closed. We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof. We need more," Mourinho said.

"We wanted four, so I could say 50 percent of the job is done, but I won't say that because it's so difficult. I wouldn't like to be in Ed Woodward's position, negotiating, because everything is really difficult.

"Maybe we don't get two, maybe we got one, but we need one to give us more options and balance. We have players in the squad that cannot play football for the next few months; players like Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young."

The Croatia star wants to leave the Serie A side, but is set to play on their pre-season tour as the Nerazzurri are yet to receive an offer from United before dismissing talk of making a move for Patrik Schick after his transfer to Juventus collapsed."Is it a conspiracy? You all know what we want, but the offer has not yet arrived," he said."Schick is a talent, but not an Inter player. He's still at Sampdoria. I don't think we will talk with his agents.
