Inter’s Sporting Director Walter Sabatini has shed some light on the Ivan Perisic transfer saga, by revealing that an appropriate offer for the winger hasn’t come in yet.
The 28-year-old has been linked to a move away from the club, after he expressed his disinterest in staying put this summer. Manchester United have been attempting to sign the player for some time now, but the asking fee of £49 million seems to be a little too heavy for them.
Nonetheless, the Croatian has accompanied his club in their pre-season tour to China. After multiple failed bids, many clubs now believe that the player is unavailable in the transfer market, but Sabatini’s latest statement is an invitation for clubs to pitch in better bids.
Speaking to Sky Italy, the director stated: “You all know what we want. The right offer has not yet arrived.”
Meanwhile, Red Devils’ manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he does not know where the train is regarding his club’s bid for the midfielder.
Ivan Perisic could easily be considered as the jewel in the swamp for Inter last season, as his performances stood out amid their otherwise lackluster campaign. In the 36 games he played in the Serie A last season, he scored 11 goals and bagged 8 assists.
His natural playing style also allows for versatility, as he can manage defensive as well as offensive moves and tactics. He is often played as a winger or an attacking midfielder, and has gained a positive reputation among the San Siro crowd.
