Ivan Perisic admits it was painful missing out on Man Utd move

Bayern Munich winger Ivan Perisic has revealed it was "painful" to miss out on a move to Manchester United.

The Croatian was on the cusp of being signed from Inter Milan by Jose Mourinho two years ago.

"How close was I going there? Very close," he told The Athletic . "It was an amazing thing for me when Jose called me. It was difficult to say no to him. In fact, I really, really wanted to join him and play for United.

"It was a dream of mine to play in all the big leagues. But it didn't happen. It was painful for me. But I don't want to go into the details. I only found out myself the real reasons two years later."
