Ivan Perisic’s Move To Manchester United Just Became Very Unlikely

Ivan Perisisic emerged last month as an unlikely primary target for Jose Mourinho as he prepares for his second season at Manchester United.

The Inter Milan forward has been on the radar of football fans across Europe for a couple of years now due to his occasionally impressive performances for Croatia on the international stage but it’s fair to say United supporters weren’t overly enthused by the news that the 28-year-old might be on his way.

They can breathe easier today though with the news that Inter have raised the money they needed to meet Financial Fair Play rules and no longer need to sell the winger and if they do, it will be for a significant fee.

Sky Italia reported last night that the Italian giants had met the regulations at the last minute.

While this doesn’t completely rule out Perisic finalising his move to Old Trafford, it leaves his club in a much stronger bargaining position than it was last week when the fee was reportedly already an issue.

If the Reds do miss out on their man, attentions may turn to secondary targets or, as many fans would support, Mourinho could realise he can make do with what he has and put some trust in the likes of Anthony Martial going forward.
