Revealed: Man United Won’t Sign This Jose Mourinho Favourite

Ivan Perisic

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has conceded defeat in his pursuit of Inter Milan winger, Ivan Perisic.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for the Croatian winger since March after Mourinho was spotted in Zagreb during an international break sparking reports that he was on a transfer mission which he swiftly dismissed.

However, Manchester United have been on the trail of the 28-year-old since the end of last season with suggestions that the player is also keen to move to the Old Trafford after holding positive talks with the club.

But Inter Milan have been adamant on allowing Perisic leave the San Siro without a fight and have demanded United pay £48.2 million for the services of the winger, rejecting three bids from the English giants.

Amid speculations that United will make a last-ditch attempt to sign Ivan Perisic, Mourinho has now moved to dismiss such reports, claiming they have ended their pursuit of the winger.

The United boss told Premium Sport: ‘That’s football,’

‘If I was playing against Inter tomorrow I’d want to win.

‘They’re strong, they put up a good defence to keep someone who’s an important player for them. That’s football.’

The Europa League holders are said to have switched targets and are now pursuing a midfielder who is also capable of playing at right-back.

Manchester United- The issues that Remain

Manchester United have just begun their pre-season tour but even that hasn’t provided an escape from the problems at the Old Trafford. The club finished the season on a poor note, collecting just one point from matches against Cardiff and Huddersfield.

In transfer terms, only two players have been added to the team, 21-year-old Aaron Wan- Bissaka from crystal palace and the equally talented Daniel James from Swansea, While both deals are at bargain price( showing a significant improvement in United’s recruitments), They hardly have the required experience to lead the line.

 

THE LUKAKU CONUNDRUM

 

Rumors from England suggest that Solskjaer is open to a deal as any money generated can be used to strengthen. His position is further re-enforced by the fact that Romelu isn’t a regular starter. There is interest, from Inter Milan, Whose coach Antonio Conte thought he was bringing the Belgium forward to Chelsea in 2017, only to lose-out  to Jose Mourinho. However, as of the time of writing, there is no bid- leaving both player and club in Limbo.

 

THE POGBA PROBLEM

 

Paul Pogba has twice stated his “desire” to leave Old Trafford. Reports in Spain suggest that Real Madrid  are keen on his signature, but they are yet to make a formal bid, let alone suggest that they could meet United £150m valuation.

Solskjaer has been under constant media scrutiny concerning Pogba’s status but has for now maintained that United need not sell their most expensive player. Truth be said, He didn’t exactly rule out a move happening.

It would be easy to view United’s position as totally bleak. The truth is less straightforward, as Despite not sustaining a single Premier league challenge since 2013, United remain one of the biggest names in world football. The club’s overall revenues for 2018-2019 are expected to exceed £630m, an incredible figure only Real Madrid exceeds. It remains to be seen if such revenue would be used to reinforce Solskjaer’s Squad, not lining owner’s pockets.
