The Wales worldwide has been linked with a potential switch to Old Trafford from the Champions League holders in the current transfer window. A winger is the Portuguese coach's top priority but little progress has been made in recent weeks amid an inflated transfer market which has seen Neymar join PSG for €222m [£198m].

Perisic, 28, is keen on moving to Old Trafford but the Red Devils are unwilling to meet Inter's £50million valuation of the Croatia winger. "He has never been put on the market, nor have we ever thought about letting him go".

"He has said: 'Perisic is an important player and we're now discussing a new contract with him'".

We still think a deal might happen, but it is looking less and less likely.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says the world-record €222million fee Paris Saint-Germain are poised to pay to sign Neymar is "not expensive". The two-time Champions League victor still wants three more signings - two full-backs and a wide player - but is understood to have accepted that one new face might be the limit of the club's remaining activity this summer.

Ibrahimovic left at the end of the season after suffering a long-term injury - he has been linked with a return once fit, though the signing of Lukaku may mitigate that need - but this summer's business means that six of Mourinho's seven signings as United boss are over six feet tall.

The 54-year-old was speaking to ManUtd.com following his side's 2-1 victory over Sampdoria in a pre-season friendly in Dublin.
