The article claims that Inter Milan had initially demanded that Manchester United include Anthony Martial as part of the deal for Perisic - but the Red Devils have no intention of selling the France worldwide.
However, it looks as though Mourinho is ready to try again for the 28-year-old after admitting defeat with his ambitious move to try and lure Gareth Bale away from Real Madrid this summer.
They wanted to take the Frenchman on loan and have a fixed price included in the deal for the permanent future transfer of Martial.
It looks as if Jose Mourinho's bid for the Croatia worldwide is dead in the water, but there is still a chance.
But with Inter now offering Perisic a new deal worth over £4.5m a year, his agent Fali Ramadani is said to have jetted to Manchester to meet Mourinho and United's directors.
He was there to update them on the situation, as Inter have offered a contract extension to keep Perisic at San Siro until 2021.
The Old Trafford club already have more than a few left backs in the team but it seems that Mourinho is not satisfied and that is why he is looking for a new one.
The next name, supposedly, on the Barcelona wish-list is a Croatian winger who has featured in transfer speculation on a regular basis this summer, although the speculation has been with regards to a move to Manchester United as opposed to Barcelona.
