Manchester United’s period of buying new players is now upon us. It’s the time of the year where the Red Devils will be linked with every name under the sun, but the first real concrete link we’ve been given is a move for Ivan Perisic of Inter Milan. That’s according to Sky Sports News.
The 28-year-old is a winger, who predominantly plays on the left-hand side. He’s known for possessing great skills and the ability to play the ball with either foot, whilst also showing an excellent turn of pace and having brilliant end product.
On the face of it, he’d be the typical Jose Mourinho-type of signing. A hard worker who offers versatility, as well as being the sort of player that’d suit Manchester United’s style down to a tee.
Personally, I feel it’d be an astute piece of business albeit slightly underwhelming, but not every signing that United make has to be a huge marquee name.
Anyway, social media was throwing up a mixed bag of responses from the Old Trafford crowd, so we’ve decided to pick out a few tweets and share the best ones with you guys.
Have a look at the tweets about Perisic here:
I think the best way to describe Perisic is a typical Jose Mourinho player. Hard worker, quick, reliable, will fight for the cause. #mufc

I'm warming to the idea of Perisic. Which naturally means it was all fake rumours and he'll sign for Chelsea. #MUFC

Perisic would be a pretty great addition to the team. But what would happen to the line up if James and Griezmann transfer actually happens?

I get the whole "trusting the manager" line and all but Perisic is a little underwhelming, esp considering the figures being bandied about😑

Great so City are getting Mendy now. Meanwhile, United are going for Perisic and Keane…

#mufc looking to sign Michael Keane & Ivan Perisic.
That would be underwhelming af. Anti-climatic.

Why do some united fans not seem Happy about Perisic? Would be a great signing. Proper Mourinho player

Perisic would be a great deal. He can play as a LW and RW, very consistent.
