Man United make 'breakthrough' in deal to sign 28-year-old

Jose Mourinho has "no idea" what is happening with Manchester United's move for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.

United boss Jose Mourinho has been keen to bring the 28-year-old to Old Trafford this summer, although the fee has been a sticking point in protracted negotiations between the clubs.

Mourinho will also be able to get opposition managers trying to second-guess selections more due to his options, although it now seems likely that his front four ahead of Paul Pogba pinging passes will be Marcus Rashford, Perisic and Mkhitaryan behind Lukaku.

"It can be a boost for all the players", Giggs told Sky Sports.

'If he comes, then the likes of Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial have to step it up'.

Clashes between worshippers, Israeli police outside Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque
Although the mosque reopened on Sunday, Netanyahu ordered the installation of metal detectors at two of the mosque's entrances. On Monday, the mosque's compound was seen empty with only tourists roaming the premises.

Inter have asked about a couple of United players as potential makeweights, including Anthony Martial - and the Red Devils have not discounted including them.

United have already invested heavily in the transfer market, spending £75m to lure Romelu Lukaku to Manchester.

"And if he misses a chance, the next one that comes along he needs to put it away because, as a centre-forward at United, you're under scrutiny all the time".

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a bid to sign Perisic from Inter this summer but a deal has not yet been confirmed.

The Croatian will not just be crossing, after all, but helping to stretch games with his running and thereby create even more space for Lukaku. No idea my friend.
