Jose Mourinho ready to sanction £35m deal for Serie A attacker


Jose Mourinho ready to sanction £35m deal for Serie A attacker

Perisic could be off to United this summer

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho had jetted off to Croatia last night to hold negotiations with the representative of winger Ivan Perisic.



The 28-year-old has been in good form for Inter Milan since the turn of the year, and Mourinho has identified him as the perfect fit to occupy the left-wing position.

According to The Sun, the Special One was present in the stands during Croatia's 1-0 win over Ukraine in the World Cup qualifiers - a game where Perisic was suspended.

The former Wolfsburg man served a one-match ban against the Yellow-Blue after he was sent off late in the 2-0 win over Iceland in November 2016.

Perisic's agent Predrag Rajkovic has previously occupied the sporting director position at Real Madrid, and his close relationship with Jose Mourinho could play a part in pushing through the deal this summer.

Inter Milan have maintained their stance on not selling Perisic in the summer, and they could consider the option, should a fee of around £35m be tabled.
