Inter Milan want Anthony Martial on loan as part of the Ivan Perisic deal
Ivan Perisic has long been on the radar of Man United, but a deal is yet to be struck
The talks between Inter and United have stalled somewhat this summer as the clubs are still some way apart in their valuation of Perisic, 28.
However, Old Trafford chief Jose Mourinho may be willing to part with Martial, who has failed to fully settle in Manchester, according to the Daily Mirror.
And the Red Devils boss insists the club will not pay over the odds for their remaining transfer targets.
United are reluctant to sell fan-favourite Martial, 21, and the player himself does not want to leave Old Trafford, but could be convinced into a year away.
The France star’s cousin revealed Inter were interested in signing Martial, earlier this month.
It is believed United considered the idea of using Matteo Darmian as a player plus cash deal for Perisic – but rate Martial too highly to let him go.

The striker joined United in a £36m deal – which can still rise to £58m – from Monaco in September 2015 while he was just 19.

Mourinho warned Martial in January that he must improve and fight for his spot in the team.

Mourinho hopes to bring in two new faces before the window shuts on August 31.
Croatia winger Perisic is one, while Tottenham defensive midfielder Eric Dier, 23, is another, although Spurs value him at £50m.
