It seems an age since Jose Mourinho proclaimed that Manchester United lacked an out-and-out winger.
From what I can remember nothing, when it comes to signings, has been done to rectify the situation with Jose being content to play the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford slightly out of position.
However, a piece of speculation that has emerged recently, courtesy of the Sun, infers that the situation could be about to change.
Our quoted source is running with the inference that Manchester United are interested in bringing Ivan Perisic to Old Trafford with a fee of £31 million being mentioned.
The Croatian, now 29-years-of-age, is currently on the books of Inter Milan who, our source, are reporting are considering a sale.
If a deal could be sealed it would certainly provide Manchester United with a few different attacking options but it’d still leave us short when compared to those free-flowing football days when Gordon Hill and Steve Coppell operated on either side of the pitch.
