Ivan Perisic made his big move this summer after Antonio Conte discarded him from his plans. The Croat is enjoying a good spell at Munich so far.

After failing to secure the services of Leroy Sane from Manchester City, Bayern turned to Inter’s Perisic.

The Croatian international had his worst season in Italy, and Antonio Conte didn’t want him in his plans.

However, the hard-working winger seems to be getting back on track.

According to Goal, Rummenigge spoke at Festival of Sport in Trento

“We brought him in to play, and when he has played he has done well.

“He has scored a few goals. [Kingsley] Coman and [Serge] Gnabry are exploding, but Ivan is always good.”

It’s clear that Bayern’s leaders like Perisic’s consistency in performances. It was something he lacked while playing for Inter.

“I won’t rule [signing him permanently] out, he has had a good start to the season.

“We have an agreement with Inter to talk about it later, and we will also evaluate it with the player.”

Perisic flew in to replace the aging Bayern superstar and club legend, Franck Ribery.

Rummenigge talked about the fan-favorite currently playing in Fiorentina:

“Montella made a smart move.

“Fiorentina have played with two strikers and given Ribery licence to attack without forcing him to defend, so he can concentrate more on attacking.

“Against Milan he scored a masterpiece of a goal. He was always very good, it wasn’t by chance that he played for 12 years at Bayern and won everything.

“It surprised us a little that he went to Italy with Fiorentina because everyone expected him to go to Saudi Arabia or China, but he made a footballing decision and I’m glad he’s doing so well at Fiorentina.”

Bayern will need all the help they can get. The league competition is fierce, as RB Leipzig and Dortmund have some high ambitions this season.
