Manchester United want to sign midfielder Perisic this summer.
Manager Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for new players and Perisic is supposedly available.
Odds on the Croatia international joining the Old Trafford club have slashed in recent days.
There was even a report in Italy claiming a £45million deal had been agreed – although that does not seem to be the case just yet.
Nevertheless, United do seem set for talks with Perisic over a deal as Inter decide they have to sell.

That is according to Italian TV outlet Sport Mediaset, who claim Inter are set for a squad overhaul when Luciano Spalletti is named as their new manager.
Spalletti has left Roma and will be announced as Inter's new boss this week.
It is claimed Spalletti wants to keep Perisic but financial fair play restrictions mean Inter need to sell.

The sale is not a footballing one and merely financial, with Inter still required to stay within certain perimeters despite being taken over by Chinese company Suning Group last year.
It is claimed Inter need the money – or must at least account that it will be received – by 30 June.
