As reported by The Daily Star, Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Ivan Perisic this summer.
The paper say he is the man Jose Mourinho has chosen to add a spark to the Red Devils attack next season and that the club are looking to land a £48m deal for the 28-year-old.
The Croatian international is one of the most effective left wingers in Serie A, impressing for Inter since joining from Wolfsburg in 2015. Last season in the Italian top-flight he scored 11 goals, assisting eight more in 36 appearances, not a bad return at all from the wing.
Creativity was a problem at times at Manchester United last season and Perisic could go some way towards solving that. With players like Gareth Bale apparently going nowhere this summer, affordable targets in attacking midfield areas are hard to come by.
United fans appear to be keen on getting him signed as soon as possible with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts about the potential deal…
Now need to sort out the left wing with Perisic and another signing for the LB position. Then we will be good to go. #mufc

Perisic really is good. I hope #MUFC raise their bid for him. Sure he's 28, should her 3-4 good years out of him.

I wouldn't mind Perisic at all – think he'd do a good job for us. But add a (fit and firing) Bale to this lot now – game changer. #mufc

If Manchester United gets Nemanja Matic then we only need Ivan perisic and we are good to challenge for the title #mufc

But I'd be absolutely thrilled if we get Perisic. He is 28 too but he will easily give us 3-4 very good years #MUFC

With Perisic being this good, imagine how good our 1st choice are. And people say we are struggling, even our worst case is brilliant #MUFC
