Manchester United news and transfer rumours: Alvaro Morata and Nemanja Matic updates

Manchester United's squad are preparing themselves for a gruelling pre-season: 28 days, eight games and eight cities.

But who will join Victor Lindelof when Jose Mourinho's side re-convene at Carrington on Saturday - six weeks after their Europa League final win over Ajax?

Alvaro Morata's honeymoon in the Seychelles and Ibiza has ended and the 24-year-old will be keen to finally seal his move to Old Trafford.

Chelsea look set to wrap up a £35m deal for Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko, allowing Nemanja Matic to move up the M40, but the Serbian was pictured behind the scenes of the club's new kit launch.

Ivan Perisic, meanwhile, could be in trouble with Inter after bizarrely playing in a professional beach volleyball tournament last week; it comes after the club resisted selling him in June to solve their Financial Fair Play issues.

Over to you, Ed Woodward.

United target Perisic in hot water with Inter

Inter Milan are ‘furious’ with Ivan Perisic after he took part in a professional beach volleyball tournament in Croatia last week, according to reports.

The 28-year-old teamed up with Niksa Dell’Orco in the Porec Major event to take on Brazilian duo Alvaro Morais Filho and Saymon Barbosa Santos.

And Bild claim that Inter are livid with Perisic and plan to fine him because he could have suffered an injury playing a completely different sport.

It comes after Inter did not have to resort to selling the winger to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations last month.

MEN Sport understands that the Croatian ‘appreciates’ and ‘enjoys’ the work of Jose Mourinho and is keen on playing in the Champions League again after a four-year absence.

Although Perisic is content with life in Milan, the father-of-two sees this summer as the chance to finally make the move to England after spells in France, Belgium, Germany and Italy.
