Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic has dropped a hint over a possible move to the Premier League amid links with Manchester United.

United are reportedly struggling to complete a deal for a wide player, with Chelsea reluctant to do business for Willian and Inter Milan in no mood to sell Perisic on the cheap, with £80m quoted as his asking price.

However, in an interview with German newspaper SportBlid, the Croatia international has revealed his desire to play in the Premier League one day, and flirted with a possible Bayern move.

“Me at Bayern? Niko Kovac influenced me a lot, I played very well for Croatia when he was our coach and if he wants me, he knows where you can find me,” the 29-year-old stated.

“I would like to play in Spain or England in the future, I heard some clubs want me, but first I have to talk to Inter and only then can I take part in any negotiations and decide my future.”
