Manchester United have been interested in signing Croatian international and Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic for quite some time.
If the latest reports in the media are anything to go by then Mourinho is very serious about finally signing the versatile attacker in the summer transfer window.
According to Italian source La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Chelsea and United are keen on hiring the services of the 28-year-old star and the Red Devils are ready to splash a fee of 60 million euros ($64million) to agree his signing this summer. The report says that Perisic is rated around 60 million euros.
The former Wolfsburg attacker has been a key member of the Croatian national side since making his debut back in 2011. He was one of the stars for Croatia at the European Championships last year.
In the current campaign, so far, Ivan has played 28 league games for the Nerazzurri and directly contributed in no fewer than 15 goals (9 goals and 6 assists).
Perisic can be deployed anywhere in the attacking third but he is mainly a left winger. At Manchester United, Martial mainly plays on the left hand side of the attack.
The French international has been inconsistent for the Old Trafford club and if Ivan joins, we can expect him to replace the ex Monaco star in the starting XI.
Not to forget, Colombian international James Rodriguez is interested in joining Man United and he is only 25. In your opinion, should United sign Perisic or Rodriguez?
