INTER MILAN are reviving their chase of Anthony Martial and could secure him on a loan deal in January.
But in order for Manchester United to let the French forward go, they will want to replace him with the Croatian winger Ivan Perisic.

The exchange would mean United aren’t left short, either financially or on the pitch.
A loan deal could suit Jose Mourinho’s side better, as they don’t want to sell the 22-year-old due to clauses in his contract- which would mean they have to share the profits with Monaco.
It would also mean that Mourinho gets the 29-year-old Croatian World Cup star who he has been a long term admirer of, but has been blocked by the powers that be at United due to his age.
The French forward has fallen out of favour with Mourinho and has seen his game time limited to just two appearances thus far this season.

And he was wanted by several clubs this summer, with Inter Milan leading the chase.
But Ed Woodward was reluctant to sell the forward to a Premier League rival and wouldn’t recoup the money the club paid when they brought him to Old Trafford.
In what was a move that made him the most expensive teenage signing in football at the time.
Milan have already tumbled down the Serie A table and will want to add some more star quality in order to stop Juventus winning their eight straight Scuedetto.
The amendment to Uefa’s rules would also work well for both clubs and not hinder their deals.
As they would be allowed to field the pair in Champions League knockout fixtures, even if they have played for the previous club in the group stages of the competition this season too.
