Transfer News: Harry Redknapp discusses transfer plans from his car window
Perisic deal alive?!
09:15: Manchester United could still sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic before tonight’s deadline.
Perisic has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United all summer, with Jose Mourinho desperate to add another winter to his squad.
United’s pursuit of the Croatia international has cooled in recent weeks due to the early season form of Anthony Martial.
But Sky Sports reporter Alan Irwin admits a deal could still happen before tonight’s deadline, despite talk of Perisic signing a new deal at Inter Milan.
“Mourinho had his targets and has pretty much achieved them all,” Irwin told Sky Sports.
“He did also want a wide player in Ivan Perisic, and that may still go through.”
