Ivan Perisic transfer update from Inter Milan



A late Manchester United swoop for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic is fading fast.

The Croatian's boss Luciano Spalletti said the 28-year-old has not shown any new signs that he wants to leave Inter, despite United manager Jose Mourinho being linked with him all summer.

“Since the start, the club spoke with Ivan, as did I, he came and told us some things, because you need specific characteristics to stay here. We must all be ready to listen to how everyone else sees things,” said Spalletti.

“Perisic is a great player, in the vein of Giacinto Facchetti, Javier Zanetti and Marco Materazzi, a leader who gives something more than an individual usually does.

“After this initial discussion, I never had any more signals of a departure, in training or outside of it.

“Ivan is someone who has his own training schedule after the session is finished, working in the gym, and is one of the most professional players I've met.

“He does something that only those who have a real sentiment for the club will do, because he never holds back and works so hard for the team.

“Perisic is not just in the Inter project, he is one of those we need to follow and who will set the path we are moving towards.”

Mourinho wanted four new signings in the 2017 summer transfer window but having secured Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof the United manager isn't expecting a fourth newcomer before the window shuts on August 31.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho gives team news update for Saturday

There is some concern with a lack of preparation time for the weekend and Andreas Pereira is no longer available after his loan move to Valencia. Luke Shaw and Ashley Young have had run-outs for the Under-23s, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain on the sidelines.
"We have to wait and see," the manager told MUTV, when asked for an update on the team news situation. "There is still one more training session. Not every player has reported yet, so today is the first time we are all together.
"I hope that these 15 days without us being together and working together, doesn't affect us too much," Mourinho added at his press conference. "I know it will affect [us]. I know that one thing is a week working with the players and working tactically and going through every principle of play to be ready for the weekend match; another thing is to have the players away and arriving step by step. 
"I don't even see them all. Today is th…

What Manchester United need to improve after defeat.

Right wing issue continues Bordeaux's left-footed right winger Malcom was United's early January target before Alexis Sanchez became attainable. How to accommodate him in a Premier League fixture was the obvious quandary and Jose Mourinho did so by shifting Anthony Martial to the right flank, which was an obvious error. It was to Martial's credit he fashioned a couple of openings during the first-half horror show and he still spent the majority of it on the fringes, as the enterprising Sanchez troubled Tottenham with his darts across the attacking line. Jesse Lingard did not vindicate the decision to keep him behind Romelu Lukaku. Martial was the inevitable fall guy, given the Sanchez signing and Lingard's fabulous form. Lingard is perhaps the least talented of the trio and it was telling that at the start of the second half he was moved to the right and Martial occupied his favoured left wing berth. The irony is Martial was poorer there. Lingard was substituted and Mo…

How Manchester United reacted on transfer window changes

Manchester United voted against an early transfer window closure next year because of the 'disadvantage' Premier League clubs could suffer, according to Jose Mourinho. Manchester United, Manchester City, Swansea, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Watford were the only Premier League clubs to vote against the proposal to close the 2018 summer transfer window on the Thursday before the top-flight domestic season starts, while another abstained. Fourteen clubs voted in favour of the window closing on August 9.
Mourinho had previously admitted he would be in favour of an early closure but stressed United must refuse to deal with any prospective buyers after the Premier League window shuts, since European clubs will be free to sign Premier League players until the end of August.
"My thoughts are by the coach's point of view, Jose Mourinho as the head coach of Manchester United," he said. "Obviously, I am in favour of that because if I focus just on the tr…
