PERISIC COMMITS FUTURE TO INTER MILAN
Ivan Perisic has signed a new Inter Milan contract to end Jose Mourinho’s hopes of luring him to Manchester United.
Reported Manchester United target Ivan Perisic has decided to sign a new five-year contract with Inter Milan to finally end speculations of a possible move to Manchester United.

He opened his account for the 2017/18 campaign with a goal against Fiorentina last month and in a club statement Inter revealed they were “delighted” to secure him until June 2022.
Perisic told inter.it: “It’s a special day for me, an emotional and happy one after the stress of the summer. Now we are all looking forward and I’m only thinking about Inter.
“For a long time I kept my counsel, and now I can say that the head coach (Luciano Spalletti) told me that I could be an even better version of myself here.
“We’ve done well in the first two matches of the season and we need to continue that way.” Continue reading “PERISIC COMMITS FUTURE TO INTER MILAN”

“We want to keep Perisic. He’s a very important player for the team. We are counting on him to start the new season. But if somebody comes in with a very difficult offer to reject then we will consider that, but of course we need to find a valid alternative for Perisic as well,” Spaletti said.
