The Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern were delighted to see new signing Romelu Lukaku bag his first goal in a Red Devils shirt, having drawn a blank in his first pre-season game for the club.
Now that the Belgian, who joined from Everton earlier this month with United legend Wayne Rooney going the other way after 13 years at the club, has got off the mark thoughts are swiftly turning back to the transfer market for the United supporting punters at the bar.
Specifically they are desperate for any news of the arrival of Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan, after reports suggested a deal for the Croatian was close.
However, when asked about the matter on his way out of a press-conference in Los Angeles manager Jose Mourinho declared ignorance on the deal, stating he had no idea where the process was at.
“No idea, my friend.”
While Mourinho may be staying coy on the proceedings, he has also made it quite clear that any deals this summer are the remit of chief executive Ed Woodward and his team.
United fans, we want to hear from you! How close do you think a deal for Perisic is? Let us know in the comments below.
