​Chelsea are looking to hijack Ivan Perisic’s expected transfer to Manchester United with a bid of their own as the transfer window enters it’s last two weeks. 

​The Mirror are reporting that Man United are set to make another bid for the 28-year-old after reportedly having a £39m bid rejected. United are looking to increase the offer to £48m but Antonio Conte wants the Croatia international to sign for the Blues after being impressed by him when Chelsea faced Inter Milan in Singapore in pre-season.


Perisic emerged as a top target for Jose Mourinho early in the transfer window but United have failed to agree a fee with Inter for the attacking midfield player. 

Inter boss, Luciano Spaletti, said last month that Perisic is not for sale and that the player is very much a part of his plans going into the new season. But after scoring against them in pre-season, Chelsea are set to get in on the action and prepare a bid for Perisic as well. 

Chelsea are looking to complete several signings before the window closes – including Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater and the Blues have been in negotiations with Juventus for left-back Alex Sandro. There is also interest from Conte’s side for Everton’s Ross Barkley.
