Manchester United

Mourinho needs to forget about Perisic and launch a major bid for this attacker instead

Manchester United fans in Transfer Tavern are awaiting some positive news on Ivan Perisic, but is Jose Mourinho targeting the correct winger?

Perisic has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer after an outstanding season in Serie A.

The Croatia international has been the subject of interest after netting 11 goals and assisting 8 in Italy last term.

Inter have so far stood firm on a switch and want the player to remain, however head coach Luciano Spalletti has conceded Perisic could leave the club.

The former Dortmund winger, 28, is said to be keen to make the switch to Old Trafford.

However, with their pursuit of Perisic, have Manchester United missed an opportunity to lure another impressive winger to Old Trafford?

Ousmane Dembele scored 10 goals and contributed 18 assists in his first season at Borussia Dortmund last term, but was said to be increasingly open to leaving after the departure of Thomas Tuchel as manager.

The shifty dribbler is said to have given up hope on a move to Barcelona and now the France international is being tipped for a summer switch to Real Madrid.

Talk over the 20 year-old leaving Dortmund has died down, but there is still plenty of time for Jose Mourinho to make a move.

His dynamic dribbling ability would make him a serious force in the Premier League with Manchester United, and at such  young age compared to Perisic, Demble would have the perfect platform to develop and mature at a player at Old Trafford.

United fans, we want to hear from you! Would you have preferred Dembele to Perisic? Let us know in the comments…
