England led after a superb Kieran Trippier free kick five minutes in but they were made pay for their failure to convert further chances by Ivan Perisic's second-half strike and Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor.

United have six matches standing between them and their opening game of the season - against Leicester City at Old Trafford on August 11.

Manchester United are in advanced negotiations over a deal to sign Inter Milan attacker Ivan Perisic as the Red Devils look to wrap-up their fourth summer signing, according to reports in France via TeamTalk.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they bid to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

As new players come in, older players have to move out, and it's easy to identify a few Manchester United footballers who should probably be thinking of moving on.

Perisic played a key role in helping Croatia to knock England out of the World Cup on Wednesday night when he netted the equaliser for his country in their 2-1 win over the Three Lions.

For now, Perisic has other things on his mind with Croatia set to take on France in the World Cup final on Sunday afternoon. "Normally you judge wide players on their pace and creativity, but he's physical too - exceptionally physical - and in the air he's fantastic".

United finished second last season, but were well adrift of Pep Guardiola's champions who achieved a memorable 100 points and finish 19 clear of Mourinho's men.
