Balde, a 22-year old winger looks on paper to be a replacement purchase by Inter, who look even more likely to agree to sell Perisic to United, who don’t seem to be giving in on the chase with a potential fee of around £50m to be agreed.

United boss Jose Mourinho is keen to add to his new defender Viktor Lindelof and striker Romelu Lukaku, with a new midfielder a top priority.
