Manchester United are still confident of landing Ivan Perisic this summer despite the prospect of the Croatia international winger flying out on Inter Milan's preseason tour, sources have told ESPN FC.

Perisic was given leave from a training camp in Italy to visit his dentist in Croatia on Saturday. But he is due to report back to Inter's Appiano Gentile training base on Tuesday morning before the squad fly to China.

With no deal agreed between United and the Serie A side for the 28-year-old, he is expected to travel ahead of a warm-up game with Schalke on July 21 and International Champions Cup fixtures against Lyon, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

Inter are due to fly from Malpensa airport in Milan to Nanjing on Tuesday afternoon.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will not attend United's preseason game with MLS side Real Salt Lake in Sandy, Utah on Monday night after deciding to stay behind in London. He is due to join up with the tour of the United States in Houston this week ahead of the Manchester derby with Pep Guardiola's City on July 20.
