Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed speculations that he travelled to Croatia to discuss a transfer deal for Inter Milan star, Ivan Perisic.
The United boss was spotted on his way to Croatia, and was seen talking with Predrag Mijatovic during his visit which sparked speculations that he was thrashing a deal for the 28-year-old who has been a prime target for most English clubs.
Speaking about his trip to Zagreb, Mourinho said: ‘I have no hidden cause, I just came to enjoy my free days and visit some friends like Predrag Mijatovic and Davor Suker,
‘I know everyone believes I came to watch some players, but in football today you don’t have to travel around in order to see some players, I know all of them well.”‘
‘I came as a person that wants to relax and enjoy the nice weather, unlike the rainy weather in Manchester.
There are reports that Inter Milan are keen on keeping hold of Perisic and has stamped a astronomical fee of £52m on the midfielder. It was reported that Manchester United have given Jose Mourinho a hefty transfer kitty for the next summer transfer window.
