Jose Mourinho

Manchester United’s odds to sign Bayern Munich midfielder slashed by Ladbrokes

Perisic favourite

Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic is reportedly close to completing a move to Manchester United.

Indeed, bookmaker Ladbrokes has him at just 1/5 to make the summer move to Old Trafford.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has stated that at the start of the window he was targeting four signings, but at this stage he’d be happy with three.

With two already in (Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku), we can surely expect at least one more big signing from Jose before the window shuts.

Backup targets

While a move for Perisic looks almost inevitable, the odds of another midfielder joining have shortened.

Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches is just 5/4 to join Manchester United.

Elsewhere, Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti is 6/4 to join Mourinho’s side, with 5/2 on offer about Tottenham’s Eric Dier making the switch from North London to the North-West.

Ladbrokes News’ Dave Burin said: “It seems Lindelof and Lukaku could just be the tip of the iceberg as far as United’s summer spend is concerned, with the club lining up moves for this fantastic foursome.”
