Mourinho Boost: Key £48m Target Wants To Join Man Utd

By on August 24, 2017

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the final weeks of the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Ivan Perisic still wants to join Man Utd…

Jose Mourinho has been handed a boost as £48m-rated Inter Milan attacker Ivan Perisic is still keen on joining Manchester United this summer, according to a report in the Express.

Perisic has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer after Mourinho identified him as a key transfer target but Untied have struggled to agree a deal with Inter.

The Mirror reported earlier last week that United chief Ed Woodward had held further talks with Perisic’s agent in a bid to push through a £39m deal after refusing to meet Inter’s £48m asking price.

The Italians responded by offering the Croatian international a bumper new contract with the Daily Star claiming on Tuesday that Perisic was close to agreeing a new deal worth around £96,000-a-week at the San Siro.

However, it looks like a move to United could still be on the cards as the Express are quoting Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol as saying that Perisic still wants to move to Old Trafford this summer.

Solhekol is quoted as saying by the Express:

“United want him [Perisic], he wants to come to United and Inter want him to sign a new deal.”

Mourinho has confirmed in recent weeks that he wants to bring in a wide attacker to complete what would be his ideal summer after already signing Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof.

Perisic would be a superb addition if United could get a deal agreed over the coming week as the 28-year-old is a hard-working attacker so he would fit in well with Mourinho’s style of play.

The former Wolfsburg attacker is also a threat in the final third as he provided 11 goals and a further 12 assists for Inter last season so I think he’d be a huge success here in England if he does join United before the end of the month.
