Ivan Perisic regret

Jose Mourinho has bemoaned Manchester United’s failure to sign Ivan Perisic.

Last summer, Inter Milan’s Perisic was one of Mourinho’s top targets after bringing Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof to the club.

But Manchester United were unable to agree on a fee with Inter and Perisic went on to sign a new contract.

When speaking on Russia Today in his role as a pundit, Mourinho was asked about Croatia’s key players and name-checked Perisic and United missing out on him.

“Perisic, he went from Croatia to Borussia Dortmund, goes to Wolfsburg, goes to Inter,” Mourinho said. “I do not know why he did not come to Manchester United when I wanted him.”
