For every Manchester United fan yearning to see Ivan Perisic at Old Trafford, this should excite you.

According to reports, Inter Milan, have moved to offer United a swap deal involving the Croatian winger and Alexis Sanchez.

German outlet Fussball Transfers reports that Inter want to make the deal, so as to keep Sanchez, who has impressed for them since the restart.

Perisic has been on loan at Inter since last summer, but the Nerazzurri want to make his transfer from Bayern permanent, just so they can offer him to United, and get Sanchez in exchange.

Fussball adds that Perisic is keen on the move too because he was once close to joining United during Jose Mourinho’s reign, but the move fell through, and he regretted it.

But Perisic is obviously 31, and doesn’t look like the type of player Solskjaer wants in his new-look United team, so the report sounds far-fetched. But we’ll see what happens, after all, football is an unpredictable sport, like many say.
