Manchester United target Ivan Perisic got himself a brilliant assist with a pinpoint cross in Inter Milan’s 2-0 win over Bayern Munich.
Perisic went down the left flank, looked up and floated in a dangerous cross right onto the edge of the six yard box. There was no player there but he knew to send the ball right into that zone, it was a cracking cross.
Here’s a video of the assist (skip to 1 minute):
Well, this sums up exactly why Mourinho wants Perisic. Great assist from a cross (just after the 1 min mark) pic.twitter.com/XZgMpg43MS

We don’t have anybody at Man United now who does this. Every one of our wide men would cut back onto his right foot and try to run into the box instead of trying to put it on a plate for the striker running into the box.
For me, this assist shows exactly why Jose Mourinho wants Perisic, he’d add something so different to our squad but whether United and Inter can finally come to an agreement really remains to be seen.
