Transfer News: £44m-Rated Attacker Expects To Complete Move To Man Utd
Ivan Perisic is already planning for life at Old Trafford and expects to complete a move to Manchester United from Inter Milan this summer
Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Man Utd’s move for Ivan Perisic…
Ivan Perisic is already planning for life at Old Trafford and expects to complete a move to Manchester United from Inter Milan this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Jose Mourinho is gearing up for a busy summer and he’s keen to strengthen his attacking options after signing centre-back Victor Lindelof from Benfica yesterday.
Perisic has emerged as a key target with Sky Sports News reporting late last month that United were locked in negotiations with Inter after seeing their opening £36m offer rejected.
It looked like the move had edged closer to completion when the Express reported earlier this week that Perisic had agreed personal terms with United worth £100,000-a-week.
The newspaper says Inter are demanding £44m for the Croatian international but United are hoping to lower the asking price as the Italians need to raise money to meet Financial Fair Play regulations.
Despite the fact the two clubs are yet to agree a fee, the Manchester Evening News claim that Perisic is already planning for life at Old Trafford and fully expects the deal to be done over the coming weeks.
The paper says the attackers camp feel it’s just a matter of time before United and Inter reach an agreement and he’s already looking forward to working under Mourinho and playing in the Champions League again.
We’ll have to wait and see whether his confidence is well-founded but I think Perisic would be an excellent signing for United if they do end up getting a deal agreed.
The 28-year-old is predominantly a left winger but he’s capable of playing anywhere across the attacking positions so he’d give Mourinho plenty of options in the final third.

He’d also add some creativity to an attack that only registered 54 goals in the Premier League last season and his hard-working style is exactly what Mourinho demands from his players, so he should be a good fit.
