Manchester united have been boosted in our pursuit of Croatian winger, Ivan Perisic as Inter Milan manager, Luciano Spaletti, has stated that though the Italian outfit don’t want him to leave San Siro. There is an inevitable feeling that the player will leave but that it will only be after interested parties have met their valuation of their priced asset, which is at a rumoured £48m.
United have been persistent in the pursuit of the wing wizard all summer, and have had 2 bids reportedly rejected for his services, but it is believed that Red Devils manager, Jose Mourinho is still keen to get the deal over the line.
However, reports have suggested that the deal have gone cold as United have so far refused to meet their valuation, but this latest comment by Spaletti, might resurrect the deal.
Speaking at a news conference, the Italian tactician said: “He is a fantastic player and if his future is totally up to me, I will definitely keep him.
“Perisic is an important player for this team and Inter have ambitious objectives.”
However, if an offer comes and the club are satisfied with the money, which will be used to invest in and strengthen the team, he could leave,” He further added.
With this latest admission, United can rest knowing that any possibility of a deal rests in our hands.
The 28-year-old Croatian is a direct threat on the wings as his running, dribbling and willingness to put in crosses into the boxes is highly regarded by Jose.
Perisic was superb for a disjointed Inter side last season, who finished 7th, and suffered three managerial reigns at the club. He made 42 appearances for the 2010 Champions League winners, scoring 11 times.
