Inter Milan could be forced to sell one of their most prized assets in the wake of Financial Fair Play regulations. The Italian giants were recently bought by a Chinese consortium which would enable them to compete with the best of Europe’s top clubs.
However, the 18- time Serie A giants are likely to sell one of their star players, so as to enable them fall in line with UEFA rules. Italian media, Gazetta dello Sport, via Dailymail, have reported that the Italian outfit may be forced to sell Ivan Perisic, who has been one of their best players in what has been a tumultuous season for the Nerrazuri.
Manchester United have been touted as a possible destination for the Croatian, given that the manager, Jose Mourinho went on a rumoured scouting mission to watch the wideman play in one of his country’s World Cup Qualifying match earlier in the campaign. Inter Milan have been dissapointing all season, failing to qualify for Europe and have seen three managers in the dugout this season.
Perisic, 28, is a Croatian international who has played for Borussia Dortmund. He is a fast, tricky player capable of playing in any of the three positions behind the main striker.
He is wanted by Mourinho to offer natural width on the flanks as he looks to maintain a sustained title challenge. He has scored 15 goals and created a further 8 in 44 matches.
