Manchester United set to complete £50million Ivan Perisic deal next week

According to the The Independent, Manchester United could tie up a £50million deal for Ivan Perisic as early as next week.

What’s the Story?

Having agreed personal terms on a move to Old Trafford, Ivan Perisic is set complete his transfer to Manchester as early as next week, providing that the Red Devils stump a few extra million pounds.

Luciano Spalletti, who has recently taken the hot seat at the San Siro, believes that he has a chance of keeping the want away Croatian. However, it seems that Perisic has already made up his mind and will join United once a transfer fee has been agreed.

How good was Perisic last season?

Sensational. Arguably the best player in an Inter shirt last season, Perisic was truly dominant on the left flank and netted 13 times in 42 appearances. The 28-year-old demonstrated his marvellous ability to cut inside and take on the role of an inside forward.

While Inter once again failed to have an impressive season domestically, Perisic stood out for his determination and willing, which is evident in many Croatian players.

Is Perisic worth £50million?

In today’s market, it is difficult to find a player of Premier League quality who is valued under £30 million. While some may see the transfer figure being touted for Perisic as immensely over-valued, players of comparative quality are likely to be priced similarly.

The Croatian will get to prove many wrong if, or perhaps when, he takes to the field at Old Trafford. If he makes a flying start, this inflated fee would soon be forgotten.
