From being compared to Cristiano Ronaldo to being one of the protagonists that broke the dressing room, the story of Ivan Perisic ends here
Ivan Perisic will soon be a new Bayern Munich player. Agreement is found on the basis of €5M for loan and option to buy at €25M. Yesterday, the Croatian did not leave with the team for Valencia and gave his ok to move to the Baveria and only the final details are missing before both sides can make the official announcement. After Icardi, who has been out of the project for some time, another key player of the past few years will soon leave Milan.
“The new cycle of Antonio Conte will start without the two great protagonists of the rift in the dressing room last season, which risked having repercussions even in the race towards the Champions League. Last summer, Ivan dominated in Russia with his Croatia and brought them to the historic World Cup final. He was so impressive that Spalletti compared him to Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘Perisic is our answer to Ronaldo’s arrival at Juventus. For physical characteristics, he is the only one in Italy that can match Ronaldo.’ Six months later, in January 2019, Perisic came to Inter office to request a transfer.”
And the rest is history.
