Ivan Perisic looks set to join Antonio Rudiger as another expensive Serie A import following reports that Manchester United had agreed a deal with Inter Milan.

The 28-year-old Croatian winger has been pushing for a move to Manchester and looks set to become a United player.

According to the Independent, Manchester United and Inter Milan have finally agreed on a £48m fee.

Jose Mourinho is hoping to get his summer business completed by the beginning of the season, with Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku having already arrived for £31m and £75m respectively.

Perisic appears likely to become the next addition whilst a deal for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is believed to be close too.

Rudiger made to look silly

Manchester United fans on Twitter were enjoying a clip from last season in which Perisic sold Antonio Rudiger a couple of hot dogs.

Signed from Roma, the £34m Chelsea signing is expected to slot into the heart of the Stamford Bridge defence this season.

Rudiger may not be looking forward to facing Manchester United if the Croatian Inter Milan star completes his big money move.

In the GIF below, Perisic can be seen using his trickery to bamboozle the 24-year-old German international.

Rudiger may have been humiliated by the £48m rated Manchester United target but he's confident that he can improve under Antonio Conte.

He told BeIN Sport yesterday, "Not to be disrespectful, but when you speak about Roma and Chelsea, Chelsea is a big club. Roma is a big club too, in Italy, but I think Chelsea is a different level.

"Of course, for me the biggest reason was the coach, Antonio Conte. He's a fantastic coach. He improved a lot of players, like last season Moses and Alonso. They had a great season and I that's why I said I want to be a part of that."

Conte secured the Premier League title during his first season in charge at Chelsea but will have to do it without Diego Costa this time around.

The eccentric forward posted a video from Brazil last night in which he mocked the Italian coach whilst wearing an Atletico Madrid shirt.
