Serie A giants Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic has indicated he would welcome the opportunity to join Manchester United after revealing that he wants to play in the EPL before his professional career finishes.
The 29-year-old technically gifted star was one of Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho’s priority transfer targets the previous summer but the Red Devils refused to meet Inter Milan’s £50 million valuation.
Ivan Perisic has been connected once again with a move to Old Trafford as a result of his impressive performances for Croatia at the World Cup this summer.
Perisic signed a five-year deal with Nerazzurri last September and the forward admits he would only depart from the Serie A club to move to a ‘top league and top club’.
‘Honestly, I would like to test myself in all of the biggest leagues but the question is will I have the time, I am 29 and working to extend my career as long as I can,’ Ivan told Sportske Novosti.
‘Yes, I’d like to play in England and Spain but I don’t know if there is enough time left.’
