Inter Milan will demand a fee of £62m if Manchester United come calling once again for Ivan Perisic this summer.

Perisic was one of Jose Mourinhos four transfer targets last summer but while the club were successful in bringing Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford, Inter refused to cash in on the Croatia international.

United made a £35m bid for the winger last June but the Serie A giants refused to budge on their £48m valuation. That refusal eventually saw United call off their pursuit.

Perisic has hit the headlines again this summer after his superb performances helped guide Croatia to the World Cup final in Russia.

The former Wolfsburg winger scored one and assisted the other as Zlatko Dalics side knocked out England in the semi-final and was on the score sheet again in Sundays 4-2 defeat to France.

Mourinho lavished praise on the player while on punditry duty following the win over England, describing him as the kind of winger that is different to the others.

Aware that the United boss may want his side to take another run at their player, Inter are prepared to act accordingly in the transfer market.

Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Nerazzurri are bracing themselves for possible approaches for Perisic and his countryman Marcelo Brozovic, who also enjoyed a superb campaign in Russia.

They report only a shock offer could see Perisic leave the San Siro, insisting Inter will not entertain the idea of their winger leaving for a penny less than €70m.
