Man Utd boss Mourinho revives transfer plans for Perisic, Rebic

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho remains in the hunt for a hard-running attacking midfielder.

The Mirror says Mourinho is ready to renew his interest in Croatian stars Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic in a clear message to Old Trafford executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Inter Milan's Perisic and Eintracht Frankfurt's Rebic who were in action against England on Friday night were both considered but the United bean counters refused in both cases to pay the asking price.

Inter Milan asked for £48million and United annoyed Mourinho by refusing to go above £45million while again to the manager's disdain the club haggled over a £40million fee for Rebic.

He was also niggled by the failure to bring in Lazio's Serb international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic who he watched again in midweek playing for Serbia.
