Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic this summer, according to reports in La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Portuguese is understood to be prepared to offer as much as €40m in order to persuade the Serie A club to part company with the player, who is contracted to San Siro until the end of June 2020.
Jose Mourinho was spotted in Zagreb yesterday and attended Croatia’s 1-0 win against Ukraine.
However, Mourinho’s denied the trip was for Perisic and insists he just wanted to meet up with some old friends.
‘I have no hidden cause, I just came to enjoy my free days and visit some friends like Predrag Mijatovic and Davor Suker,’ Mourinho told HNTV.
‘I know everyone believes I came to watch some players, but in football today you don’t have to travel around in order to see some players, I know all of them well.
‘I came as a person that wants to relax and enjoy the nice weather, unlike the rainy weather in Manchester.’
