Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti says he will speak with Manchester United target Ivan Perisic about his future at the club.
Manchester United remain keen to bring the Croatia international to Old Trafford this summer despite having two bids turned down by the Serie A side.
Spalletti, who was appointed as the successor to Stefano Pioli in May, wants to keep Perisic at the San Siro but admits the 28-year-old could signal his desire to leave during the proposed talks.
“I will speak to everyone and, of course, for those who are ‘distracted’ there will be different words,” Spalletti said.
“I will listen to him (Perisic). I’m counting on him but we’ll have to understand his intentions. It would not be nice for me to hear him say words like ‘I want to leave’. We’ll see.
“You keep talking about Perisic and his desire to leave but I need to listen to his own words first and then decide how to act.
“In any case, I will say this: we are Inter and we can choose to make different decisions to the ideas of the players.
