Inter Milan ‘ready to sell’ £50 million Perisic to Manchester United
Fresh reports have claimed Inter Milan are ready to sell winger Ivan Perisic, with Manchester United linked.
The Inter Milan star was an integral part of the semi-final win over England at the World Cup, with his pace, skill and delivery causing real problems for the back-line of Gareth Southgate’s squad.
And despite the fact he couldn’t help stop a rampant French side win 4-2 in the finals, he has had a decent summer and his performances have caught the attentions of Mourinho.
The special one is keen to add another player or two to his squad and is reportedly ready to splash close to £50 million to try and secure a deal for Perisic when the winter transfer window opens up in just a few weeks time.
Now Italian Publication Tuttosport have claimed that Inter are willing to let Perisic leave for the £50 million that he is currently valued at, but not in January as they will not do any potential deal until the end of the current season.
The winger dropped a massive hint earlier in the season that he would like to make the move to the Premier League.
“Last year I signed new five-year deal with Inter, I enjoy great status at the club,” he said on the Daily Star website.
“It is true Inter has not had the results it should have since 2010, there were some problems, bad decisions, but somehow I feel we are on the right way to return to old glory.
“I heard some clubs want me but they have to talk to my club and only after that could I join the negotiations and decide.
“If I was to change club, it could only be to a top league and top club.
“Only God knows what will happen in future, I am happy at Inter but we all know anything is possible in football.
“Honestly, I would like to test myself in all of the biggest leagues but the question is will I have the time, I am 29 and working to extend my career as long as I can.
“Yes, I’d like to play in England and Spain but I don’t know if there is enough time left.”
Could persiic be a good buy for United?
Perisic has proven on the biggest stage of them all that he is the world class performer Mourinho needs to add on his wings if he is to catch and overtake Manchester City for the Premier League title.
So if they could geta deal done then he would be a fantastic signing.
