Ivan Perisic: Inter Milan urged Man United snub

Ivan Perisic says that Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti played a defining role in his decision to snub a move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils had an intense interest in the winger as Jose Mourinho looked to strengthen his squad after their treble success last season.
However, the off-season transfer window came and went with Perisic still at Inter and the midfielder has now revealed his reasons for turning down the English giants.
“Spalletti told us that every player is important and we got proof of that in the win, as even those who haven’t had as much space made their mark,” he told Mediaset Premium.
“Spalletti was extremely important in convincing me to stay.”
