FCInternews has reported that Bayern Munich is evaluating the possibility of extending the contract of Croatian World-Cup finalist Ivan Perisic. Currently recovering from an ankle injury, the winger would cost Bayern around €20-25 million, excluding the initial €5 million paid for the loan move.
Perisic, whose playing style failed to adapt to Antonio Conte 3-5-2 system, has had a moderately successful reunion to Bundesliga football. Scoring four goals and assisting five in 15 Bundesliga games, his role as a useful alternative on the wing would be the main reason Bayern wants to extend.
FCInternews reported that Perisic is enthusiastic about the possibility to stay in Munich. Despite Niko Kovac leaving, Hans-Dieter Flick seems to value Ivan Perisic and playing time in Munich seems more likely than if he was to return to Conte’s Inter.
In short, it is a deal that would work in everyone’s favor. Inter would profit from the possible transfer of an unwanted player, even though Bayern bought him for only €15 million. Bayern would get a decent alternative on the wing, an experienced winger who has shown this season that he can still produce results.
