Should Perišić Jump Ship?

January 9, 2018




It was only one month ago that Inter Milan were flying high in Serie A. They were in first place, leading Napoli by one point, and looked to not only make a run at a Champions League berth for next season but to dethrone champions Juventus as well.



Fast forward one month and Inter Milan have dropped points in five straight Serie A matches (2 losses, 3 draws) and now see themselves nine points behind leaders Napoli.



Winger Ivan Perišić was a hot commodity this summer and nearly made the move to Manchester United. Ultimately, the price was not right for the Italian giants but is now time the issue?



Perišić will turn 29 years old on February 2nd and is slowly entering the twilight of his career. Should he push for a move to a guaranteed Champions League club next season or sit tight in Milan?

  1. Slavonac from Canada says:

    Personally I think Perisic is a fraction of the player he was a year ago and I’m not 100% sure why but my speculation is that he dropped his form mentally and can’t seem to get it back!

  2. Crotown says:

    I agree with Slovanac- huge potential never reached. Don’t know why ? he has good games and then he disappears for a whole bunch-

    I just hope he shows up for WC-Russia- I’m sure Perisic knows a no show there and then the 29 year old thing gets real for many teams who won’t see any polish on that kid- too bad- he’s a dynamo when he wants to be

  3. idemo says:

    A issue with today’s player is he does enough to get to stardom to get to greatness to get that good contract
    And then he stops he becomes complacent

    One of the thing smessi and Ronaldo have no done

    I call BS on all this Inter Milan form blame on Perišić .

    Icardi is a one trick pony (very good finisher).

    Candreva sucks.

    Joa Marinho or what ever is about has creative as a tree stump.

    Spaletti hasn’t made an adjustment since July ?

    Serie A is the king of tactical leagues.

    They all know what inter Milan are going to do and thwart there predictable crosses with ease.

    Glad Perišić got a raise but he should of went a wall in August and not have gotten on the plane to China.

    Good news he will have fresh legs and be hungry for Croatia.

    Question is why can’t Brozovic get into the team with the current ineptitude in the midfield?

    He needs to play if he wants to be in the mix this summer.

    Brozovic is in that second pool of players where anyone could have breakout spring and nail down a sport in the rotation.

    Bojan was amazing when he was 17 and 18 years old. He was scoring goals in La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey.

    But once he got older, he just kept getting worse.

    My guess is that his Serbian side took over and his fate became the same as all those “awesome” Serbian prospects like Tosic, Ljajic, Zigic, Kezman, Sulejmani, etc.

    He even started to look more Serbian as he aged… Losing those cute, pretty boy Spanish features… Being replaced by a tired, grey eastern European immigrant mug.

    By the time he hits 30, he will probably be on trial at the Hague.

    @ Maminjo

    lmfao !

    Actually thought Alen was playing well before ankle injury.

    Seemed to be learning to pass the ball.

    Hope he finds his feet and can earn a call up for March.

  7. The truth says:

    Perisic has reached his potential. He’s become a very good player. It’s unrealistic to expect better from him

    My predictions for the next six months is halilovic play causes the diaspora to start hooting and hollering for him to play for the repka…. Assuming no injuries
