Man United given deadline if they want to sign top-class attacker this summer: report

Manchester United must complete a move for Ivan Perisic within the next eight days, if the Red Devils want the transfer to happen. That’s according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, who adds that Jose Mourinho wants the winger to become our fourth major signing of the summer.

So far, the Old Trafford club have completed some excellent bits of transfer business, but it has become clear that manager Mourinho does, in fact, want one more player through the entrance doors at the Theatre of Dreams.

We do have some brilliant attacking players in the side already, but we’re lacking that out-and-out winger, particularly on the left-hand side. We have a lot of guys who love to cut in and get a shot off on goal, rather than stick out on the wing and whip a cross into the box.

That’s something that Ivan Perisic would bring in abundance, and I genuinely would be overjoyed if we were to sign the Croatia international. At 28, he’d bring in some much-needed experience as well as some real quality.

However, in my opinion, Inter seem keen on keeping hold of their man and you can hardly blame them. Perisic is a cracking player, and they’d find it hard to replace him.
