Internazionale manager Luciano Spalletti has dubbed his winger Ivan Perisic as a ‘world class player’, as he attempts to keep him away from the clutches of Manchester United.
The Italian has been in charge of Inter since the beginning of June, and seems very impressed with Perisic already – though he was quick to mention that the club are uncertain whether they would be able to keep hold of the 28-year-old.
“Our intention is to keep Perisic if possible. I have known him for a long time and it is obvious he’s a world class player,” Spalletti said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“Whether he plays well or not doesn’t really change things. Of course, we want to keep him but there are a lot of considerations to be made and I cannot say for sure whether he will stay or not.”
