Man United & Ivan Perisic
Man United fans have been alerted to Ivan Perisic’s Instagram account on Sunday.
Before Man United headed back to Europe from their American tour, Jose Mourinho made it clear to the media he expects more signings at Old Trafford before the start of the season.
So far Victor Lindelof has joined from Benfica, while Romelu Lukaku moved from Everton.
The Special One voiced his hope to have two more new additions to the his squad, although he said he could accept it if just one more player can through the door.
Could that player be Ivan Perisic?
The Croatian international has long been tipped with a summer move from Inter Milan, however the clubs are yet to agree on a deal for he 28-year-old left winger.
Such a tease
On Sunday, Perisic posted the following message on Instagram Stories, which included the hashtag #manu.
So was he confirming he’s finally completed a move to Old Trafford?
Sadly, no. Instead he was just shouting out his daughter, who is called Manuela Perisic.
Saying that, one has to believe the Croatian knew exactly what he was doing when he uploaded that hashtag to his family picture.

In recent days, Inter boss Luciano Spalletti has been voicing mixed messages about Perisic.
Spalletti said that Inter could be forced to sell the player if the right offer was submitted, but a day later he told the media he believed any deal for Perisic was off.
One suspects that Inter are simply trying to force Man United’s hand into tabling an offer closer to the Italian’s 50 million euro asking price.
