The Croatian play-maker was a high-profile target of Mourinho’s last summer, with United reportedly locked in talks with the San Siro side for most of the transfer window.
But, in the end, a deal couldn’t be reached, and Perisic remained in Italy – and it’s just as well he did for the Internazionale hierarchy that he did.
His treble against Chievo this afternoon helped his side to a 5-0 win, which means Inter are top of the Italian top-flight for the first time in more than a year, and with Perisic in their ranks, the sky looks like the limit:
