In case you missed it, there have been claims in the English press that Manchester United are once again interested in Ivan Perisic.

We’re not entirely sure where they’ve come from nor why they are being recycled, but they’re there, and they’ve reached Italy.

It’s no secret that Manchester United wanted the Croatian in the past, but that stemmed from José Mourinho wanting to work with him, and there’s been little to no indication Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is of the same mindset.

That’s why he ended up at Bayern Munich on loan, where he did well, and he returned to Inter where he has become a regular member of Antonio Conte’s plans, either down the left or as a supporting striker.

Calciomercato fully go along with them on Thursday, claiming Perisic’s agents have been fielding phone calls from the Premier League and Manchester United ‘in particular’.

It’s explained he isn’t one of the players who cannot be sold, and that’s why Antonio Conte is willing to let him go as long as he gets a replacement.

Corriere dello Sport also touch upon the Serie A club’s potential January transfer window, but their stance is very different.

They explain to their readers that rumours in England ‘are certain Manchester United can return for the Croatian’.

However, and this will come directly from their own information, they add ‘no signals have arrived’ from the Premier League club suggesting a raid is being planned at Old Trafford for the 31-year-old.

A mixed bag here, meaning it’s best to take everything with a pinch of salt for the time being.
