Ivan Perisic might be looking outside England for a possible move away from Milan, as his agent has recently offered the player to Juventus.
While Manchester United have been strongly linked with the midfielder for some time now, their interests may have hit a roadblock, as the player’s agent is looking for another alternative in the Turin club.
With several rounds of negotiations having taken place between United and Inter regarding the Croatian International, they have failed to come to a conclusion regarding a transfer bid acceptable to either party. Inter Milan value him at £44 million, which is a little more than what the Old Trafford outfit is willing to chew for him.
The player’s agent, Fali Ramadani, might be looking at other options in order to secure a good move out of the club, by offering him to Juventus, according to Tuttosport. A direct transfer to their title rivals may seem to be a very hard deal to make, but is not unheard of, especially in the Serie A.
With Inter also having to add another £26m by the end of June to respect the Financial Fair Play regulations, the club, as well as the agent, could be willing to consider choices previously thought of as unacceptable. This controversial move, however, would not be taken well by the Nerazzurri fans and the members of the club.
Inter’s newly appointed manager, Luciano Spalletti, recently took an indirect jibe at the 28-year-old player, criticizing him for his lack of passion for the club.
Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Metro), he said: “Those who play here must feel they are Inter, not just a player who is at Inter. Otherwise, there’s no point talking about a sense of belonging.”
Perisic played a total of 42 games for his club last season, including the Europa League, in which he scored 11 goals and 8 assists. He was also a regular starter for the Croatian International team throughout, and scored 2 goals in the 4 friendlies he played during the 2016-17 season.
