As everybody is aware, today is a major day in Ivan Perisic’s move to Manchester United and reports from Italy say everything is heading in the right direction.
Premium Sport, via FC Inter News, report that Perisic has arrived at Inter Milan’s training ground and is now a step away from joining Man United.
At the same time, Sky Sports are reporting that a compromise on the fee for Perisic is now close. The issue is that although Perisic doesn’t want to fly out to China for Inter’s pre-season tour in order to finally push the move through, he is expected to be part of Inter’s travelling squad. Whether that is Inter playing hardball and stretching out the negotiations a little bit more isn’t known but reports from both Italy and England suggest it’s now on the verge of being done.
United fans have had to remain very patient with our pursuit of Perisic and the fact not everybody agrees the 28-year-old would be a good signing hasn’t helped frustration levels. However, we really are now teetering on the edge of completing our third signing. It’s been a long wait but by this afternoon we should either have an agreement in place or Perisic will fly to China, hopefully it is the former.
