Forget Ivan Perisic… Ed Woodward should concentrate on signing this Bundesliga star

The Manchester United supporters in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly awaiting news of more arrivals following the signing of Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United are supposedly closing in on a deal to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan, and while our landlord believes that the 28-year-old is a good player, he isn’t the best option available to the Red Devils.

Our landlord believes that the Europa League champions should be relentlessly targeting the signature of Emil Forsberg.

The 25-year-old can operate in almost every attacking position, and at the age of 25, he is three years younger than Perisic.

Sweden’s attacking midfielder had a stunning season for RB Leipzig last campaign, scoring a superb total of eight goals and providing a staggering total of 19 assists in the Bundesliga.

To achieve such astounding numbers in his very first season in one of the most competitive leagues in football is demonstrative of his vast quality. By contrast, Perisic provided eight fewer assists than the Swedish International.

At the age of 25, Forsberg has yet to reach the pinnacle of his abilities, and under Mourinho’s guidance, there is scope for the Swedish player to develop into one of the finest talents in world football. He contributed to 25 league goals this season which is an astonishing total, and this number could increase significantly given the quality of players that Mourinho has at his disposal.

Forsberg’s agent has publicly revealed his player’s intention to take the next step of his career; Manchester could well be the perfect destination.
