Man Utd suffer blow in latest transfer chase, deal reportedly could still happen

Though the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased with their side’s summer business so far, they are still hoping for a bit more over the coming weeks…

One deal that has looked likely for several weeks is regarding Ivan Perisic, with Sky Sports reporting earlier this week that an agreement was close between the Red Devils and Inter Milan.

However, it appears as though those reports were slightly premature, with the Telegraph reporting that Perisic flew to China with Inter Milan on Tuesday after Man Utd failed to agree a deal in time. Though this doesn’t necessarily put a halt to a move, it will certainly delay proceedings – with Inter clearly still preparing to have Perisic at the club at the start of next season.

This will come as a real blow for Jose Mourinho with the Premier League set to start in just a few short weeks. In an ideal world, key deals such as this would have been completed months ago, but that is clearly not the case – with this saga set to continue over the coming days and weeks.

Perisic’s arrival would certainly be an important one for Man Utd, with the Red Devils lacking a naturally wide player like him at present. Romelu Lukaku is a player that feeds off of excellent deliveries, and Perisic is one of Europe’s best at providing them.

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for this deal to progress quickly.
