Spalletti wanted to keep Perisic in the summer at all costs, not interested in Berardi or Bernardeschi
Let’s be honest, we would not have Perisic’s seven goals and six assists so far this season had it not been for Luciano Spalletti. It is no secret that the Inter coach was instrumental in convincing the Croatian winger to stay in the summer, despite Manchester United temptation.
According to Calciomercato, Inter were offered Berardi and Bernardeschi but Spalletti wanted no one else besides Perisic. The Croatian international of Inter has always been Spalletti’s first choice who said to him that “stay at Inter and your career will change.”
And with the recent contract extension, Luciano Spalletti will have his man at Inter for a very long time.
