Ryan Giggs believes the arrival of Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic would give Manchester United a massive boost ahead of the new season.
He’s been continuously linked with a move to Old Trafford and although reports claim a £44m deal for Perisic has nearly been agreed, Perisic has been included in their pre-season tour of China and will be on the plane.
The Croatian is said to be desperate to make the move to Old Trafford and may have to wait longer as both clubs negotiate a deal, which is a shame because he’ll miss out on Man United’s tour.
“If he comes then the likes of Marcus, Mkhitaryan, Martial have to step up and that can sometimes be a boost for the players who are already there,” he said.
“If a signing comes in, it not only excites the fans – it excites the players to see quality come in the door.”
The pre-season is the perfect place for Perisic to make the move and adapt his game, which is why it’s a shame to know he won’t be taking part, especially because he’s been one of our longest-standing targets this summer.
