Huge changes are afoot at Old Trafford this summer, and the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are very excited…
Jose Mourinho is clearly a manager that knows what he wants, and whilst last season was successful for the Red Devils, it is clear that next year needs to be even better.
Big targets, however, demand big players, and one such player that could be on his way to Man Utd this summer is Ivan Perisic. Indeed, The Sun are reporting that Mourinho has told the Man Utd brass to seal a deal for Perisic as soon as possible – with the Portuguese reportedly wanting to take the midfielder with him when his side embarks on a pre-season tour of America.
This certainly makes sense, given how important these tours are not just from a commercial standpoint, but also as the club looks to prepare for the 2017/18 campaign. It offers an opportunity to regain fitness, to learn tactics, and perhaps most importantly, get to know new teammates and build a relationship off the field. All of these components will be key as Man Utd look to return to their glory years next season.
Indeed, the Man Utd fans in the pub are hoping that their side will be able to challenge for the Premier League next season, though they fear that Mourinho will need far more than Ivan Perisic to reach their targets.
