Ivan Perisic to Man Utd: Inter Milan star teases fans with picture and hashtag #Manu
Perisic is one of Jose Mourinho’s top transfer targets at United, having landed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku already this summer.
Nemanja Matic is on the verge of becoming United’s third signing ahead of the new season in a £40million deal from Chelsea.
And the Daily Star Sunday say United are also closing in on the signing of Inter Milan winger Perisic – who Mourinho believes is key to his side winning the title.
Manchester United have been locked in talks with Inter for Perisic for the majority of this summer but have so far refused to meet their £48million valuation.
But Perisic could not help but tease Red Devils supporters today by posting on Instagram Stories.
The 28-year-old uploaded a picture of his daughter outside what appears to be an ice cream shop with love eyes and praying emoticons and the hashtag #Manu.
Perisic’s daughter is called Manuela and celebrated her third birthday at the weekend.
The Croatia international marked the occasion with a video of her whilst away on the club’s pre-season tour in Singapore.
And he followed that up with another birthday post of himself in action during Inter’s 2-1 win over Chelsea yesterday.
Ivan Perisic often uses his social media channels to post pictures of daughter Manuela son Leonardo.
But United fans will wonder whether he was hinting at something else given the hashtag he used in his last snap.
Mourinho is desperate to land Perisic and is urging United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to seal a £48m deal.
The United boss believes the winger is the man who will make the difference for his side in the title race this season.
A source at one of United’s top-six rivals told the Daily Star Sunday: “Perisic would be a make-the-difference signing for United.
“He’s a top, top player and if United get him – added to what they have already got – they will take some stopping this season and could well win the league.”
