Bayern Munich in advanced talks to take Perisic from Inter.

Only recently did we bring you news here at Ronaldo.com of Ivan Perisic’s lack of a future at Inter Milan.

Now according to Football Italia, the Bavarian giants have expressed interest in acquiring his services.

Antonio Conte did away with the pleasantries and quite simply told the player, he was not part of his plans.

That he thought he was unable to play in his favored 5-3-2 system.

Him staying at Inter simply would not work.

It is understood that Monaco has approached Inter and enquired. But nothing more.
Out of nowhere though.  It appears that Bayern Munich sees the winger as the ideal replacement for Frank Ribery or Arjen Robben.
The Croatian international is no stranger to the German Bundesliga. He has played for both Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg.
It is believed that Bayern favours a James Rodriguez style deal. A long term loan with the option to buy.
It remains to be seen if Inter will agree to this.
Only last year were they receiving offers of 30 and 40 million. Unfortunately they demanded 50 million and nobody took up the offer.
The options for Bayern are not great right now.
They invested a lot of time and energy in the potential Leroy Sane deal. Only for it to fall apart after he got injured and could be out for months needing ACL surgery.
Perisic would suit Bayern’s style of play down to the ground. Aggressive and devastating down the wings. A hybrid of Ribery and Robben who both left this year.
While talks are advanced and both clubs want to deal. The gap between deal structure and valuations may take some time to bridge.
The transfer window clock is ticking and time is something neither club have.
