Man Utd and Liverpool among the front runners battling to sign £51 Million forward
Man Utd are reportedly close to agreeing a £51 million move for inter Milan winger, Ivan Perisic. This is an effort to make sure they steal a march on their rivals. Perisic has been linked with moves to almost all the top English teams, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. But United seem to be heading closer to securing the player’s signature ahead of the others.
Perisic is one of the star players at Inter. The 28 year old Croatian has been in terrific form this season, he has scored nine goals, while providing three assists to his team mates.
According to reports from Italy, among his suitors, Jose Mourinho’s side have been the most persistent. The Portuguese maestro see’s him as a huge part of the new team he wants to build next season.
Jurgen Klopp had a falling out with the winger during their time at Dortmund, but is said to have left that in the past, and is looking at working with the winger one more time.
Mourinho see Perisic as a more experienced winger, that can mentor Jesse Lingard into becoming a great winger in the future.
