Sources Think Perisic Signing will be Sealed

Manchester United must sign a top quality attacking midfielder before the start of the new Premier League campaign and reports suggest that Perisic is expected to join the Red Devils.

Yesterday, we covered a report (via Leggo) claiming that the Old Trafford club are ready to pay 55 million euros to hire the services of the Croatian international.

More recently, Independent have reported that sources close to both Inter Milan and Man United think that the move will eventually be completed. United have already signed Lindelof, Lukaku and Matic this summer and Perisic could be their fourth signing. Few days back, even Daily Star reported that Mourinho is closing in to sign him.

The Independent have mentioned that the Nerazzurri want Martial but United feel that he is an important member of the squad and will not let him leave.

Multiple reports have suggested that the 28-year-old winger has already agreed personal terms to join Manchester United. Most recently, Tutto Sport have mentioned the salary of €6million-a-year that has been agreed.

Ivan is a versatile talent who can be deployed on either flank and he can effectively maneuver with both feet

Perisic scored 11 goals and provided 11 assists as Inter Milan finished 7th in the Serie A last season. This means that he will have to play another season without the Champions League if he stays with the Italian club.

    Martial should not be sell to any club, is man United future player, extend Jose or ed Woodward should settle for Aries to play no 2 and valencia should play no 7., but the management could have try to pay inter Milla the €55 million, after all clubs are spending twice of that money on one player, they should not turn man u to club that only mention to buy play with mouth,

    Tick.. tick…tick, time is sounding as a warning to Ed Woodward and Jose Morhino and the winger is not yet secured, Perisic, an injury free prone player and his willingness compared to Bale, and he has exhibited his qualities during pre season marches is been betrayed by his authorities, please this is the world of freedom, Let his will be done.
