Arsenal ‘conned’ Ivan Perisic on transfer
Inter Milan boss Spalletti has accused Arsenal of having conned Ivan Perisic on matters of player transfer.
It was rumoured that the Gunners were after having the Croatian player on loan until end of season. The deal looked so sweet that Ivan Perisic submitted a transfer request to Inter Milan, however, in the end, Arsenal failed to sign the player.
Spalletti on his end, he is unhappy with how Arsenal went about the deal, unsettling one of his best players yet they knew too well that they are not in position of acquiring him.
He said, “We’ve got to get Perisic back on track. There was this story on the market, but he is a professional, understands his role and yesterday it was already a very different mood. These things happen in the transfer window, the player received an impressive proposal and was tempted. However, he then realized it was not a true offer, that he’d been conned, and took a step back. Now he’ll resume training and as soon as his mind is back fully on Inter, we’ll let him play.”
It is believed that Arsenal wanted Perisic on loan with an option to buy at the end of the loan but Inter Milan wanted guaranteed money, by having an outright buyer.
