Perisic admits ‘dream’ Manchester United transfer was ‘very close’

Ivan Perisic admits he was ‘very close’ to sealing a ‘dream’ move to Manchester United under former boss Jose Mourinho.

The Croatia international was strongly linked with a move from Inter Milan in the summers of 2017 and 2018 during Mourinho’s spell in charge of Manchester United, and the 30-year-old has now revealed how close he came to moving to Old Trafford.

Perisic would remain at Inter due to the Italian’s refusal to do a deal, before he joined Bayern Munich on a season-long deal this summer, though the winger has now revealed it could have been different following advanced talks over a move to the Premier League.

“How close was I going there? Very close,” he told The Athletic.
