Ivan Perisic has opened up on his decision to stay at Inter Milan after he was repeatedly linked with a transfer to Manchester United in the summer.

The Croat has been in fabulous form for the Italian giants this season, scoring seven goals and providing six assists in 15 league starts, and he banged in a hat-trick in a 5-0 win over Chievo on Sunday to fire Inter to the top of Serie A.

Jose Mourinho was desperate to land the 28-year-old in the off-season but a deal fell through with Perisic opting to stay at the San Siro for the time being.
