After many weeks of what seemed like an unhinged and dramatic transfer window, Bayern Munich have announced the successful signing of Croatian midfielder Ivan Perišic as a loanee from Inter Milan. The contract lasts one year, with the option for the club to buy the player next summer. The details regarding the transfer fee and other financial information are yet to be clear, but it is rumored that the loan fee is €5m with the option to buy being another €20m.
After inking the deal, the winger told FCBayern:
Everybody knows that Bayern is a really big club. For me, it comes in the best five in the world. When a club like this calls, you cannot say no. That’s the reason I came here and I promise to give my best everyday.
Perisic, while not being a Leroy Sane, is a player that will be able to handle both the left and right flanks since he is two footed and has experience playing on both sides throughout his career.
