£44m-rated Winger Responds to Manchester United Transfer Rumours

August 9, 2018

Inter Milan forward Ivan Perisic has dropped hint that he is open to leaving the San Siro giants amid rumoured interest from Bayern Munich and Man Utd.

The Croatian forward, who has led his country to the World Cup finals, has been regularly tipped to leave Serie A giants since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese manager is believed to be a huge fan of 29-year-old forward and tried to lure him at Old Trafford since last season.

Speculation that Perisic could be on his way to Old Trafford only intensified last month when Mourinho admitted to being a huge fan, and German giants Bayern Munich have also been tipped to make an approach for his signature before the deadline day of the transfer window.

Despite signing a five-year contract at San Siro last September, Croatian forward is not ruling out a future move away.

“Last year I signed new five-year deal with Inter, I enjoy great status at the club,” he told Sportske Novosti. “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.”

Perisic has played a direct part in 20 Serie A goals last term, compared to 19 the campaign before.
