Manager explains attacker’s desires amid Manchester United interest

Ivan Perisic Inter Milan

Luciano Spalletti has gone on to state that Ivan Perisic has not shown any desire to leave Inter Milan amid speculation linking him to Manchester United.

It is no secret that Manchester United are currently chasing a new attacking player and Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic has been a name who has consistently been linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the summer.

United are believed to have made multiple bids in an attempt to sign Perisic but all of them have proven to be unsuccessful as Inter have slapped a whopping £48million asking price on the Croatian international.

With the final days of the transfer window fast approaching, United are certainly running out of time in their hopes of signing Perisic and Inter boss Luciano Spalletti has dealt the Red Devils with a huge blow by revealing that the 28-year-old has shown no inclination towards earning a move to Old Trafford this summer.

Spalletti said, “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.

“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.”
