Inter Milan chief Ausilio confident Man Utd Perisic pursuit now over

Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio says Ivan Perisic's new deal doesn't include a buyout clause.

The decision was made to ward off summer suitors Manchester United.

"Nobody denies that this offer from Manchester United arrived, but we and Spalletti wanted him to be a key player for us and we were convinced that our project could be just as successful as the one the English club were offering," Ausilio told Mediaset.

"Ivan never asked to leave and his new contract is the logical consequence of that. There was no need to insert any kind of release clause in it."
