Manchester United Target Croatian Duo Ivan Perisic And Ante Rebic In Stunning £92m Double Swoop

Manchester United are set to splash out £92million on Croatia World Cup duo Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic, according to reports.

The wingers were crucial in the Balkan nation’s best-ever tournament run, with Perisic netting in the 4-2 defeat to France in Sunday’s final.

United boss Jose Mourinho has long admired Perisic, 29, who has been with Inter Milan since 2015 and has been linked with a £48m move to Old Trafford by Get French Football.

Along with his strike against France, Perisic also scored the equaliser in the Croats’ semi-final win over England.

And now Rebic, 24, who plays for Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany, has made it onto Mourinho’s radar, but could cost the club as much as £44m.

Rebic committed the most fouls of any player in Croatia’s run to the final, although his country did play three lots of extra time and his superb volley set them on their way to a 3-0 romp against Argentina.

Arsenal are also said to be in the running for Rebic, which could be driving the price up for the player.

United, looking to add to the signings of Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant this summer, appear keen to add depth out wide with uncertainty over the future of Anthony Martial.

Chelsea have been linked with a stunning swap deal for the Frenchman that would see Brazilian Willian head in the other direction.

Tottenham and Juventus are also said to be chasing Martial, although the latter’s interest may have waned somewhat after the £88m deal that saw Cristiano Ronaldo arrive in Turin.
